Wagner: A Film by Tony Palmer
Thursday 23 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
Wagner was born 200 years ago on 22 May 1813. Filmed in 200 locations
throughout Europe, many where the actual historical events took place,
this epic film was made in 1982/3 to commemorate the 100th anniversary
of Wagner's death and stars Richard Burton as Wagner, his last major
role. In this third episode "Tristan and Isolde" is finally
performed but shortly afterwards Wagner is banished. Wagner and Cosima
are overjoyed by the birth of their son, Siegfried. Meanwhile,
the Franco-Prussian war finally realises Wagner's lifelong dream
of a united Germany. Wagner marries Cosima and returns to Munich but
has yet another clash with Ludwig and his ministers so decides to build
his own opera house at Bayreuth.
Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]
The Chitungwiza Harmony Singers
Saturday 25 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.00 p.m.
The Chitungwiza Harmony Singers are perhaps Zimbabwe's premier choir
and have a vast repertoire of perfectly executed music, both sacred and
secular, including classical operatic renditions. They are known for
their professionalism and perfectionism,as well as their well-practiced
dance steps and rhythmic movements. This concert is one of a
series being held to help the fundraising for a planned trip to the
U.S.A in September and is particularly appropriate for Africa Day!
Booking at the Academy. Tickets $3.00 in advance, $5.00 at the door
Wagner Part 4 and Tristan und Isolde -
Act I (30 May)
Thursday 30 May Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
In the final episode of "Wagner", construction on the opera house in
Bayreuth begins and the epic "Der Ring des Nibelungen" is finally
performed. Wagner completes "Parsifal" and goes to spend the winter in
Venice where he dies.
Widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertory, the
final opera in the Academy's Wagner cycle (before we start again in
July!) is "Tristan und Isolde" which was initially inspired by his
affair with Mathilde Wesendonck.
"Daniel Barenboim made a triumphant debut as principal guest conductor
at La Scala's gala opening-night premiere of a new staging of Wagner's
Tristan und Isolde, receiving 20 minutes of applause, a shower of roses
and shouts of bravi... public and critics were unanimous in
praising the production and Daniel Barenboim's conducting as well as
the cast, which boasts Waltraud Meier as Isolde and saw British tenor
Ian Storey as Tristan in his Scala debut." [Associated Press]
Admission: $3.00 [free to film and Red Carpet members!]
Wagner: Tristan und Isolde - Acts II
& III (31 May)
Friday 31 May Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Carriages: 10.00 p.m.
"The performance is utterly gripping, heart-wrenching and true to
Wagner in every sense. Patrice Chéreau has proven, over and over, that
he understands Wagner on the deepest level...the stark, surreal nature
of his staging leaves only the music and the poetry for us to absorb.
Barenboim's love of the composer is always evident in his passionate
direction. This must be the definitive version of this amazing work, so
close to Wagner's true feelings of love and death... And Waltraud Meier
IS Isolde." [Rupert Christiansen]
Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members] Supper available
during the interval

Communication Workshop (1–2 June)
with Sonia Pereira, Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June, 9:00am -
Our capacity to communicate either unites or separates us – Learn to
clarify and optimise your communication skills.
Most of our relational conflict emanates from our inability to take
responsibility for the ways in which we communicate what we need. Often
we are not even aware of what we need or what we are really asking for
– we only know that we feel, and tend to express through these
un-clarified feelings. This may often result in confusion, conflict
and/or breakdown in one form or another.
Drawing on personal experience this workshop seeks to discern and
clarify our confusion around our observations and interpretations;
feelings and needs; needs and strategies; strategies and requests; the
role of empathy; and where we abdicate responsibility in blaming others
for not understanding or meeting our “demands” whatever they may be.
$100 & bring & share lunch (Couples and relatives $75 each)
