Wahnfried - September Programme

Friday, 29 September 2017
Our September theme is 'Cross Dressing'!

Dustin Hoffman dresses as a woman to get a job in TOOTSIE; Robin Williams dresses as a woman to see his children in MRS DOUBTFIRE; Leonora dresses as a man to save her husband in FIDELIO; all the female roles in TWELFTH NIGHT are performed by men as women were not allowed on the stage in Shakespeare’s time; Eddie Redmayne becomes a women in THE DANISH GIRL and in ORLANDO Tilda Swinton plays a nobleman who changes overnight from a man into a woman and Quentin Crisp plays Queen Elizabeth I.

What has become something of an annual event, we shall show our fifth different production of Wagner’s DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN. This year it is the cycle from COPENHAGEN often referred to as the feminine ring.

Kasper Bech Holten’s spectacular Copenhagen production presents Wagner’s epic Ring cycle as the drama of its heroine Brünnhilde. By setting each of the four operas in a pivotal decade of the twentieth century, her story becomes also a history of the modern age and of the ideologies and conflicts that tore it apart. A cast of outstanding singers, the Royal Danish Orchestra under Michael Schønwandt and the breath-taking technical facilities of the Copenhagen Opera House combine to make this a staggering operatic event and a landmark staging of the Ring.

We have two contrasting live events this month:

On Saturday 23rd at 7.30pm SOLO – So Far So Good – South African songwriter Roger Lucey sings his own songs. Roger was a great hit when he sang at the Leonard Cohen Weekend last May.
R120 including wine. To reserve a place please reply to this e mail.

On Sunday 24th at 4pm Niël Rademan will sing cabaret and light classics accompanied by Vienna-based South African pianist Ilse Schumann.
Niël Rademan is a highly acclaimed South African singer of cabaret, folksong, lieder and opera. He is also an arts manager and director and has sung on London’s West End as well as having founded and directed several award winning groups and productions.
R120 including wine. To reserve a place please send us an email.
