English Touring Opera – Macbeth – Perth Festival of The Arts @ Perth Concert Hall
May 16 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
English Touring Opera - Macbeth - Perth Festival of The Arts @ Perth Concert Hall

The witches have a prophecy: Macbeth will be king. But royalty comes at a price. The cost of power is betrayal, murder and revenge.

Follow Verdi’s Macbeth in a blood-soaked journey to the throne and watch a guilt-ridden Lady Macbeth descend into the depths of despair in English Touring Opera’s new production. Starring Grant Doyle (Macbeth) and Madeleine Pierard (Lady Macbeth) in Verdi’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s iconic play.

Gerry Cornelius conducts his first opera for English Touring Opera, directed by James Dacre. Andrew Porter’s careful English translation brings as much of Shakespeare to the production as possible.

Danny Driver & Laura Ruhí Vidal – Perth Festival Of The Arts @ Perth Theatre
May 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Danny Driver & Laura Ruhí Vidal - Perth Festival Of The Arts @ Perth Theatre | Scotland | United Kingdom

Join pianist Danny Driver and soprano Laura Ruhí Vidal for a colourful programme that interlaces piano music and song written between 1903 and 1917. Debussy’s stately evocation of ancient Greek art and his mystical conjuring of an evening of Moorish Granada introduce song cycles by Ravel and Falla. The recital closes with Ravel’s piano work Le Tombeau de Couperin, an intimate yet virtuosic homage to French baroque keyboard tradition, and at the same time a memorial to friends and acquaintances killed in the Great War. 

Programme: Debussy Danseuses de Delphes (from Préludes, Book 1) Ravel Cinq mélodies populaires Grecques Debussy La Soirée dans Grénade (from Estampes) Falla Siete Canciones Populares Españolas Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin

Tickets include a tea or coffee prior to the recital from 10:30am

An Audience with John Simpson - Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre

With over 40 years’ experience in international journalism John Simpson has dodged the bullets in Tiananmen Square, danced on top of the Berlin Wall, and was on hand for the revolutions in Czechoslovakia and Romania. Last autumn, John’s novel – a fast paced and revelatory thriller – MOSCOW, MIDNIGHT was published to critical acclaim, and John will sign copies of this and his other books after his talk. In this fascinating afternoon, John will talk about some of the difficult and often dangerous situations he has faced as a reporter, as well as some of the more light-hearted and amusing tales from his own travels interwoven with stories of figures who went before him, such as Ernest Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn and Charles Wheeler.
