Angel Anne 2015

Angel Anne is a "Psychic Medium" based in Glasgow and works throughout Scotland, the United Kingdom and abroad. She has connected to spirit since she was a child, but pushed away her gifts as she was aware of how people treated you if you were "different".

Throughout her life Anne has always been guided to people and places at the right time and now is aware that it was spirit and the angels helping and guiding her.

Anne aims to help you to understand and come to terms with the obstacles life throws your way. As well as using her gifts Anne will share some of her own personal experiences so that you can recognise the signs when your Angels are around.

"My private reading with Angel Anne was very accurate, the spirit's that Anne communicated with were the people whom I had been looking to contact, I enjoyed the variation of the reading with Anne connecting to spirit, then tarot card reading then using her own card, which were also great and showed me the direction to go with life" - Luke (Scotland)

"…the best medium I've ever seen! And I've seen a few!!" - Linda Montague

Berwick Festival Opera 2015: Die Walkure

An epic end to a wonderful Summer of opera!

This event was previously scheduled to take place at Berwick Guildhall, but due to the immense power of the singers voices, weve decided our plush Main House is perfectly suited to the performance! ***Listen to an extract of Die Walkre Act 1 from Berwick Festival Opera 2014 HERE.***
Die Walkre (The Valkyrie) is the second of the four operas that form Wagners epic Ring Cycle - his extraordinary saga of love, lust, power and betrayal rooted in the Gods and legends of Norse mythology.

The story focuses on the forbidden passion and flight of Siegmund and Sieglinde, and their rapidly changing fortunes as the Gods argue over their fate and intervene at will. The opera contains some of the Ring cycle's most memorable music, and is forever lodged in popular consciousness for providing us with the instantly recognisable Ride of the Valkyrie.

Jonathan Dove's superb 18 piece re-orchestration (originally commissioned by the City of Birmingham Touring Opera) is performed by principal players from the Hebrides Ensemble and the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland.

Building on last year's fantastically well-received concert performance of Act 1, Scenes 1-3 and Siegfried's Idyll, Berwick Festival Opera 2015 ends on an unmissable dramatic high with this enhanced concert performance, exploiting our state of the art stage projection and lighting facilities to perform the full opera in all its exhilarating musical glory.

We are delighted to have gathered together a fantastically high calibre cast of experienced Wagnerians :

* Internationally acclaimed soprano **Janice Watson** heads our all-star line up as *Sieglinde*. After winning the Kathleen Ferrier Award at 23, she has gone on to perform at many of the world's major opera houses with many leading conductors, and has been a regular guest artist with both English National Opera and Welsh National Opera. She has sung regularly at both the Royal Albert Hall Proms and the Edinburgh International Festival.
* The Irish dramatic soprano **Miriam Murphy **(*Brunnhilde*) won the Bayreuth bursary, was a prizewinner at the Seattle Wagner competition, and has appeared in the Opera North *Ring Cycle * and sung for the Royal Opera, Welsh Natioanal Opera and Glyndebourne.
* American mezzo **Andrea Baker** has sung *Fricka* nearly 100 times and has sung various Wagner roles all over the world, including Germany, China, Salzburg and Aix en Provence with Sir Simon Rattle.
* Trinadad-born tenor **Ronald Samm** sang *Siegmund* in the Graham Vick *Ring Cycle* in Lisbon and has sung major roles, including *Otello*, at WNO, Opera North, Birmingham Opera Company and for numerous other opera companies outside the UK.
* This is Welsh baritone **Paul Carey Jones** first *Wotan*, and he has sung major roles for WNO, Scottish Opera and in Ireland, Italy and China.
* British conductor **Peter Selwyn** was assistant conductor on the *Ring Cycle* in Bayreuth and Nuremberg, having first worked as repetiteur on the *Ring* at Covent Garden under Bernard Haitink. He has conducted for WNO, Opera North, and extensively abroad in Germany, Italy, Hungary and Singapore.

Berwick Festival Opera 2015

The most memorable experiences can happen in the least expected places, and Berwick Festival Opera is a shining example. After a triumphant debut season in 2014, welcome to another Summer of seductively beautiful music.

Enjoy vibrant new productions of four works, carefully chosen for their fabulously tuneful music and accessible drama - all created and performed by a superb team of internationally acclaimed musicians and singers. Together, they offer us a dazzling array of skills and expertise gleaned from their work in the world's greatest opera houses.

Each opera has been lovingly re-orchestrated to perfectly match the immediacy and intimacy of three of Berwick's brilliant venues, all with excellent acounstics (Caesars Palace on Hide Hill, the historic Guildhall and the pluch richness of our Main House Theatre) whilst retaining all their musical and emotional magic.

From Gilbert & Sullivan's playful Japanese romp The Mikado, to two deftly handled tales of tangled love affairs, comic confusion and happy-ever-after in Rossini's The Silken Ladder and Mozart's definitively romantic The Marriage of Figaro, and culminating in the towering drama of Wagner's The Valkyrie.

Berwick Literary Festival: And a Book Was Born!

In October 2014. Mike Ross was working, delivering flowers, but took a break to pop into The Literary Festivals, Poetry Cafe. He filled an empty slot reciting his own poems and lifted by the reception they received, a few months passed and a book was born!

A message from Mike… "Monday 13th April saw Kipper Hill Press become a true embryonic publisher when an enthusiastic invited audience attended The Watchtower Gallery. Having been lubricated with champagne and fine wine (don't expect that to become the norm!) the guests were treated to readings from the poetry volume by, Karl Robins, Sheree Parkinson, Benj Foreman, Julie Taylor. With Frank Meadley and Marie Tucker singing the two poems which have been set to music by Frank.

Julie Taylor and Andrew Smith from Berwick and District Cancer Care came along and Julie read the poem dedicated to the charity in the book. Around seventy pounds was raised as a result of book sales and several of those present were generous in making random donations.

This book launch was so well received and enjoyed, an invitation was profferred by the steering group of The Berwick Literary Festival, to recreate the event as an integral part of the 2015 event.

We are delighted to be guests of The Maltings and feel the Stage Door Bar will be a wonderfully intimate venue in which to entertain you. Frank Meadley will sadly be off shore pumping oil, but we are lucky that the superb musician and folk singer Karl Robins will partner with the amazing Marie Tucker, to produce a superb version of the two song/poems." Berwick Advertiser - 29 April 2015

A flash of inspiration is all it takes for Michael Ross of Tweedmouth to pick up his pen and write a poem. His rules are simple but it must rhyme, it can be of any length and on any subject. The results have now been put into a book, 'The Little Purse of Verse', which was launched before an appreciative audience at the Watchtower last Monday.

It is locally produced by Kipper Hell Press and sells as �6.95. There are 60 poems in the book covering a wide range of topics. Some, recalling incidents of sadness, are very moving. Some feature locals like the late Jim Clark, some pay homage to the Romany links with the Berwick landscape.

There is an ode to an election result, regret at a heavy cold and a joyful address to the fish supper. "I have always been interested in poetry and we shall see how this book goes but there are many more to come and I suppose I can now claim to be a songwriter too," he said. Two have already been put to music and were given an ovation when beautifully performed by Frank Madeley and Marie Tucker.

"It is not my intention to become a publisher but a writer," he revealed. He said the poems were his private diary of life, death and the bits inbetween.

Berwick Cancer Care Group will receive �1 for every book sold at the launch.

A local man, Michael is a member and soloist with Berwick Male Voice Choir and has already written and performed his words to well known tunes. He is a committee member of St Andrew's Club and regularly recites at Burns Suppers and Gatherins. He also appears on the Maltings stage from time to time, playing roles in the emergency services pantomime.

Fred MacAulay: Twenty Fifteen

From BBC Radio 4s The News Quiz; Bridget Christie Minds The Gap; The Unbelievable Truth

It sounds like a wrong tennis score, but Twenty Fifteen is a hugely significant year for one of Scotlands best (and best loved) stand-up comedians. Back on the road again after 18 years at BBC Radio Scotland, Fred looks back on family life at home…..and forward to how his country will shape up after the referendum of 2014. In his first tour since 2012 and with a new show, as well as looking backwards and forwards hell probably look sideways at politics, sport, the environment and without this sounding too like a brief for a newspaper, there will undoubtedly be a colour supplement with a look at celebrity.

Royal Opera: Le Nozze de Figaro (live digital broadcast)

Often considered a perfect opera, Le nozze di Figaro represents Mozart's genius at its most lively and delightful. Based on a play that was originally banned for its political content, the fast-moving libretto creates realistic characters made even more human by Mozart's outstanding music. David McVicar's popular staging of this comedy returns in the hands of the leading British conductor Ivor Bolton. The cast is led by the star bass Erwin Schrott, who has sung the role to great acclaim at Covent Garden before, partnered with star Romanian soprano Anita Hartig in the role of Susanna.

Royal Opera: Lucia de Lammermoor (live digital broadcast)

One of Donizettis finest works - the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th Century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers..

Containing what is undoubtedly one of opera's most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti's finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo.

Royal Opera: Werther (live digital broadcast)

Based on Goethe's novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet's opera tells the story of the poet Werther's hopeless love for Charlotte, who is committed to another man..
The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour, - small wonder that Werther is often considered to be the composer's finest work. The Royal Opera's Music Director Antonio Pappano returns to conduct film, theatre and opera director Benot Jacquot's classic production. Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo stars as Werther, alongside Joyce DiDonato, who sings her first Charlotte (one of the great French mezzo roles) in this staging.

  • Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, David Rawle

Besides looking charming – and wondrously beautiful where appropriate – the English-language version of this enchanting animated feature boasts many strong vocal talents as it tells the story of the last of the selkies, a child named Saoirse. It is shaped from its director's love of Irish legend, folklore, nature and culture, and makes for a beguiling blend of the unfamiliar and culturally specific with the universally appealing.

Susan (McCarthy) is a CIA office worker, the support to super-spy Bradley Fine (Law); when disaster strikes, Susan's withering boss Elaine (Janney) sends her into the field. Funny, exciting and genuinely ambitious spy spoof with an appealing performance from McCarthy, and Byrne exceptional as the arrogant villainess. Hugely likable.

More time-travel hi-jinks as the Resistance battles Skynet and timelines collide all over the shop. Solidly workmanlike action sequences meet bewilderingly confusing writing and the characters are soon as lost as the audience, in what feels more like a parody of the franchise than the dawn of a new era.

The Maltings Theatre and Arts Centre

Despite its name, The Maltings is not a converted malt house but a purpose-built arts venue, the northernmost theatre and cinema in England. It contains the 310-capacity Main House Theatre and the 70-seat Henry Travers Studio and presents a mixture of theatre, live music, comedy and dance.

Berwick-upon-Tweed station is approximately ten minutes away on foot and the venue is served by the 18, 32, 34, 60, 67, 235, 241, 253, 260, 267 and 464 bus routes on Golden Square.

The Maltings Theatre & Cinema is the premier performing and media arts venue for north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.

Housed within a purpose-built building in the centre of the historic market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, The Maltings offers a full programme of nearly 700 events each year – mixing world-class professional performance and film with community-centred activities, workshops and amateur events.

At the heart of the building is our beautiful 311-seat Main House theatre with a proscenium arch stage, circle and boxes, and superb sight lines.

The Maltings is the largest performing arts venue between Newcastle and Edinburgh – and we have a justly earned reputation for national-quality performance. From Sir Andrew Motion to Lee Evans, Headlong Theatre to Julian Clary, Scottish Ballet to The National Theatre of Scotland, our programme is eclectic and always intriguing. We sell over 50,000 tickets to our events every year – in a town of just 12,000 people.

The Henry Travers Studio is a state-of-the-art black box studio theatre, completed in March 2011, which seats 74 on retractable seating and which is programmed with live performance and film throughout the year, as well as hosting a wide range of workshops and classes which attract in the region of 9,000 attendances annually.

Our recently refurbished Stage Door Bar at Stalls level is open Wed–Sat 6pm until late (Open Sunday, Monday & Tuesday if there is a performance). The Stage Door bar is an eccentric and bohemian public bar that serves a wide range of hot and cold drinks, as well as being able to host live entertainment.

On the top floor of the building is The Maltings Kitchen, a fully licensed restaurant and café which serves delicious cakes, coffees and lunches Monday – Saturday through the day, and superb pre-theatre suppers from 5.30 onwards on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Run by award-winning chef David Foxton, The Maltings Kitchen enjoys breath-taking views across the river Tweed over the Jacobean Old Bridge.

The Maltings also houses the offices of community arts education social enterprise Think Make Grow and Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival as well as new local enterprise Berwick Visual Arts, bringing spectacular exhibitions and artists to the area.
