MOZART AND SALIERI – A TRIPLE BILL @ AUSTRALIAN PERFORMING ARTS GRAMMAR SCHOOL GLEBE

Mozart and Saleri (1)

THREE PERFORMANCES ONLY
You know the story of the infamous (albeit highly fictionalised) rivalry between Mozart and Salieri. No doubt you have seen the late Peter Shaffer’s film adaptation of his own play, “Amadeus”, greatly inspired by Alexander Pushkin’s “little tragedy”, the dramatic poem “Mozart and Salieri”.

Let us take you a little closer to the source material.

We are excited to present a triple-bill including Rimsky-Korsakov’s almost verbatim operatic adaptation of Pushkin’s tale, alongside two of Mozart and Salieri’s own farcical works; Der Schauspieldirektor (Mozart) and Prima la Musica, Poi le Parole (Salieri). These pieces were interestingly composed for the same competition and debuted at the same time, in the same room!

As a special treat, it is also our utmost privilege to present, likely for the first time EVER here in Sydney, “Per la ricuperata salute di Ofelia”; a piece of music composed by Mozart AND Salieri, with libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte of Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Cosi fan Tutte fame (to name just a few). Discovered only this year in the depths of the Czech National Museum, this piece was thought to be lost to the ages. We are delighted to be able to give it’s modern-day, Sydney debut.

Upon meeting an enigmatic Transylvanian Count, a Victorian Englishwoman is given a bicycle. But this gift comes with a price: midnight supper at his place. This invitation proves too tempting to resist and her mortal life is changed forever. Bicycle is a one-woman play about conquering fears, parting legs and the unexpected turns life can take after dining with a monster.

The reviews interstate have been outstanding:-

★★★★ ‘Danielle Baynes is a supernatural force to be reckoned with in this fanciful, original dramatic comedy-thriller.’ – THE ADVERTISER
★★★★ ‘This show is utterly surprising: edgy theatre, bold and fierce, especially for feisty women.’ – INDAILY
★★★★ ‘An indisputably modern work jam-packed with ideas about female liberty…’ Great Scott
★★★★1/2 ‘Baynes is spellbindingly captivating in her storytelling…Adding to the beauty is the luscious voice and virtuoso violin playing of Pip Dracakis.’ – GLAM Adelaide
★★★★ ‘The audience is captured with every movement and every word…definitely one to put on the list.’ – Adelaide theatre guide

Lies, Lies and Propoganda’s production of Danielle Baynes’ BICYCLE is playing the Old Fitz from 21 June to 2 July.

All tickets $25 including booking fee.

Performance times Tuesdays to Saturdays at 9.30pm and Sundays at 7.30pm.

THE VIAGRA MONOLOGUES @ BLOOD MOON THEATRE, KINGS CROSS

What right does a woman have to depict men and their sexuality in all its vulnerable glory? You decide. Geraldine Brophy’s script traverses territory from the tragic to the sublime. Three male actors bring to life fifteen males – from a toddler to a tormented priest – who explore relationships with love, manhood, sexuality and fatherhood

Tom Matthews, John Molyneux and Meynard Penalosa inhabit with irresistible conviction, a variety of characters from three to eighty three.

It’s a show about much more than sex; after all, they have to bare something much harder: the male emotional landscape.

Funny, touching and sometimes sobering in its connections between male sexuality and the violence men do to themselves; The Viagra Monologues celebrates men and challenges social perceptions about masculinity.

The Viagra Monologues is fundamentally about respect, regardless of gender or sexual connection. Respect for each other, men and women, regardless of our sexual connection or otherwise.

THE VIAGRA MONOLOGUES is a vibrant lively text that tackles the contradictions and controversies of masculinity with wit and sensitivity. It asks us to reconsider what it is to be a man, and what men can do to be there best selves.

DATES
16 June – 2 July 730pm at the Blood Moon Theatre, 24 Bayswater Road, Kings Cross.

TWO PEAS THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS TARA CLARK AND KIERAN FOSTER’S PLAY ‘DRIFT’ @ ATYP STUDIO 1

Featured Image by Lee Nutter.

The only solution to grief is to grieve. It’s as simple as that. You just have to grit your teeth and go through it.

You can try to bury it; to stow it away in the darkest cavities inside you, but grief grows thick and wet like moss in the dark.

You can try to ignore it, or pretend you don’t know it, but sooner or later it shows up on your doorstep, bags packed and intending on staying a while.

You can try to drown it, but you can be assured that the motherfucker will learn to swim.

The only way to learn this, is to have something to grieve for.

Funny, tender and deeply felt, DRIFT is an homage to young adulthood in all its guts as well as its glory. It is the follow up to Clark’s critically acclaimed Jennifer Forever, described by one critic as “such a brave and bold accomplishment” (Steve Zipper-Theatre Unzipped).

The fourth production by Two Peas, the indie theatre company who “rescued David Mamet’s Edmond” (Lisa Thatcher) and whose inaugural production We’re Bastards was described as “a great example of how the smaller theatre companies in Sydney are really knocking it out of the ball park” (Joy Minter).

DRIFT is the company’s third presentation of new Australian work.

DATES
July 20th to 30th, 7pm Wednesday to Saturday, 5pm Sunday 24th

VENUE- ATYP Theatre, 4/5 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay.

Martin Ashley Jones, the writer of the new Australian play, Is It Time.

Is It Time is a love story. Simple. An extraordinary love story that will stand the test of family and time. Ever met the one person in your life that will become your soulmate? Your best friend, your lover, your partner and more than anything, the person you can rely on – no matter what!

Eva and Jim Rogers share that kind of love that only they understand. Endless love. Everlasting love. Eternal love. Does ‘till death us do part’ really mean the end? When death comes calling who decides… is it time?

A new Australian play by first time playwright, Martin Ashley Jones, that will make you think and question who gets to make the decisions. Is It Time (without the question mark) will leave you with the answer or maybe not! You decide!

Directed by Barry Walsh, King Street Theatre’s resident young director who brought you the ever popular, The Bald Soprano, Who is Sylvia? Or The Goat and The Boys’ Life, Barry Walsh is back tackling a new genre of play, one that is not so absurd or is it?
