Miss Julie @ Joan Knight Studio, Perth Theatre

It is the mid-1920s, Scotland, and the General Strike is in full swing.
On a stifling Midsummer’s evening – while the protest explodes into
dancing outside – Miss Julie, the Laird’s daughter, and John,
the Laird’s manservant, reach out to each other. Set alight by the
promise of revolution escalating outside, the pair grasp at the
possibility of a different life until only one desperate choice remains.

“BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Bruckner Symphony No 7” @ Perth Concert Hall
Feb 22 @ 7:30 pm
"BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Bruckner Symphony No 7" @ Perth Concert Hall

The first thing you sense is a quiet shimmer in the
air. And then, like some vast mountain rising from
the clouds, the opening melody of Bruckner’s
Seventh Symphony soars majestically towards the
heavens.

Bruckner said it came to him in a dream,
played by an angel – but when Ilan Volkov brings
his searching musical intelligence and emotional
insight to bear on this monumental ‘cathedral in
sound’ the results might well be revelatory. Two
contrasting – but equally inventive – masterpieces
set the scene: an ebullient little symphony from
JS Bach’s son Carl Phillip Emmanuel, and the
witty, electrically-charged Violin Concerto that
Stravinsky intended to be unplayable. No fear
on that score from our soloist Carolin Widmann.

Pitlochry Festival Theatre: The Unwanted @ River Room - Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 22 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Pitlochry Festival Theatre: The Unwanted @ River Room - Pitlochry Festival Theatre | Scotland | United Kingdom

Shaper/Caper

It’s a comedy, it’s dance theatre, it’s about failure – it’s a comedy dance theatre show. In The Unwanted, narrator Thomas starts by sharing his letters of rejection. Meanwhile Vince, armed with a multitude of cheap props, will bring the tale to life physically. (He might need a few pals from the audience to help him, especially for the ‘big’ numbers . . .)

Destruction and chaos ensue as props fail and costumes fall apart, while the pair do everything they can to just keep going on! With comedy songs written by Mark Franks (The Overtones) and with lots of audience dancing, this show will make failure funny – yours, mine and particularly Thomas’s. There will be a free workshop for anyone who has ever wanted to make a piece of dance theatre (which will be included in the show!) Check website for details. Age 16+.

Tickets can be purchased from www.PitlochryFestivalTheatre.com or by phoning the Box Office on 01796 484 626.

Collabro @ Perth Concert Hall

Collabro, the world’s most successful musical

They went on to win the competition with one of
the biggest majorities ever, leading to them joining
Simon Cowell’s label Syco. Collabro have released
a chart-topping debut album Stars, followed by

My Mountain Life by Simon Yates @ Perth Theatre

My Mountain Life by Simon Yates @ Perth Theatre

One of the most accomplished exploratory
mountaineers of all time. Simon Yates is best
known for his role in the harrowing expedition
to the Andes documented in Joe Simpson’s
bestseller Touching The Void. Following that
experience in Peru, Simon has been increasingly
drawn to places where few others have trod.
This illustrated lecture features spectacular
images and film of the most remote and rarely
explored mountain ranges of the world from the
Arctic to the Antarctic and Alaska to Central
Asia – there is hardly a significant range that
Simon has not visited.
