ABBA Forever

The successful tribute act perform the songs of Swedish pop band ABBA. The show is seen as a satirical parody of ABBA and has received cult status since the band was founded in 1988 by director and musician Rod Stephen in Melbourne, Australia. The show explores the music of ABBA and the flared fashion of the 70s. Stephen came up with the name Bjorn Again as a play on singer Bjorn Ulvaeus's name and as it sounds a lot like Born Again. The Bjorn Again cast stay faithful to the songs of the Swedish band and in between performs a parody of the band, performing in fake Swedish accents and with the fake names Agnetha Falstart, Benny Anderwear, Frida Longstokin and Bjorn Volvo-us. The band have performed for high profile pop stars throughout their career, including Kylie, Cher and Shania Twain. Abba songs and products continue to sell well, as can be seen by the hugely popular motion picture Mamma Mia, stage shows and Bjorn Again celebrating their 20th anniversary of the show in 2008/09.

A Christmas Carol

WINNER - Best Performer in Theatre (Fringe Report Awards 2012) NOMINATED - London Theatre Award (London Awards for Art and Performance 2012)

Brother Wolf presents A Christmas Carol - As told By Jacob Marley (deceased) Adapted and performed by James Hyland Music by Chris Warner

In celebration of the 175th anniversary of Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol', join us in The Alban Arena this festive season for a special performance of James Hyland's award-winning stage adaptation. Told from the perspective of Scrooge's deceased business partner, this ground-breaking theatrical event has been hailed as the "definitive telling of A Christmas Carol" (Redditch Standard), and rated as one of "the top Christmas shows in London, Edinburgh and around the UK" (High 50 Culture). Recognised by The Queen for its part in Dickensian Scholarship, this "forcefully compelling masterpiece" (Manx Independent) delivers thrills, chills and excitement aplenty for all ages.

Jacob Marley is dead and condemned to an eternity of carrying a heavy chain, forged in life; a life to which he can no longer return except to recount the tale of his miserly business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the path that lead to his redemption. Through Marley’s words, we learn how three magical spirits opened Scrooge’s eyes and made him realise the true value of love and forgiveness.

Russian State Opera Presents…

Madama Butterfly – One of the most colourful & exotic operas

Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English Surtitles

“Russian State Opera enjoyed a well-deserved standing ovation” Daily Post

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians

After its successful season last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with an exquisite production of Madama Butterfly boasting beautiful sets and costumes which form the perfect setting for this emotional and heart-breaking story.

No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madama Butterfly.

Set in Japan at the turn of the last century, it is the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to tragedy.

Though infinitely sad and tragic, the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini’s favourite opera – his supreme theatrical achievements also gave the world its most sublime and beautiful arias in history - One Fine Day and Love Duet, as well as the Humming Chorus which has been popular with opera-goers for over a century.

This touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.

Inspired by the mostly alarming state of the world his children are growing up in, and a genuine, urgent desire to do something about it, this show is about empathy. 99 percent of the world's population is made up of other people: why can't we understand them? As scrawny and impassioned as ever, one of the UK's most beloved and thinnest acts offers some suggestions, with his usual notoriously high joke-and-rant-per-minute rate.

Mnozil Brass

“Cirque” is the name of the latest string of the seven brass instruments by Mnozil Brass, who, as always exploring the limits of their instruments, enter the arena to counteract the monkey circus of everyday life with music and humour, transforming it into a small, fine flea circus even if only for a few hours …

Come! Listen! Amaze!

They are staunch supporters of the thesis that the world is round. And they made another discovery over the course of their 24 years, especially in their legendary performances in the Rocky Mountains, Shibuya and Ühlingen-Birkendorf: Again and again – even with the most intimate cantilenas – there were completely unexpected salmon blasts in the audience.

The troubled musicians immediately became self-conscious, but even they could not explain the reactions of those lost souls among the spectators. Undaunted, Mnozil Brass went their way, the seven men have a mission that they steadfastly bring under the people:

Come on, people indulge in our Elysian game. But Zapperlott! The laughter did not get any less – it got stronger, louder! Almost you could no longer hear your own tuba, so much did people howl outside in the country. And there slowly matured with the seven friends the realisation that man then but occasionally tends to happiness and it must simply burst out of it. For almost a quarter of a century. At least at Mnozil Brass.

In summary: The world is round. Man laughs. In short, the world is a circus. Just Cirque. Sounds better.
