Performing Arts Bulawayo [PAB] and the Academy [Bulawayo]

Charlotte Grey (14 May)
Thursday 14 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
Charlotte, Grey a young Scottish woman who has studied in France, is living in London during World War II. Within weeks she both falls in love with a young pilot and is recruited by the Secret Service to act as a courier for the French Resistance. However her mission behind enemy lines becomes a personal quest to find her lover who has been shot down...
'If nothing else, the superb cinematography makes Charlotte Grey a winner. The picture is filmed through a creative and sensitive eye with evocative moods and sensitive textures and shades. But photography aside, this is a gripping and well acted film that will satisfy fans of both war movies and love stories... Michael Gambon gives an Oscar worthy performance.' [IMDb Review]
Admission: $3.00 [free to Film members]  Supper available from 6.30 p.m.

Theo Bross (cello), Oliver Deutsch (piano) - Live Performance! (15 May)
Friday 15 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.
The first live concert in twenty months with overseas musicians will be a cello and piano recital including music by Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Johann Strauss, Saint-Saëns, Fauré, Falla and more.
Theo Bross studied violoncello, conducting and music education in Stuttgart, Budapest and Paris. In 1989 he won the "Premio Alfredo Piatti" competition in Bergamo. In 1991 he founded the Pegasos Ensemble with which in the same year he won the Karlsbad Chamber Music Award. From 1992-1996 he played in various orchestras in Germany, Switzerland and France, and in 1995-1996 he completed the diploma course for the Kodaly method of music teaching in Hungary. He also produced several CDs and radio recordings. In 2000 Theo founded the Allgaeu Sinfonietta, a chamber orchestra in Bavaria, and since 2009 he has been the conductor of the Danube Youth Orchestra.
Oliver Deutsch was born in Arad, Romania but, after studies in Jerusalem, Budapest, Slovenia and Switzerland, now lives in Switzerland and is a recognised chamber music partner, teacher and soloist with performances throughout Europe as well as in Israel and Zambia. He has made concert tours and appeared at festivals as a soloist as well as with the Danube Youth Orchestra and trio and duo formations. His repertoire ranges from works of the Baroque period through to modern music.
Booking at the Academy. Please book in advance if possible to avoid delays at the door on the night! Tickets: $10.00 & $5.00 - free to Red  Carpet members.
A two-course dinner with the performers will be available after the concert. The menu is barbeque chicken, rice and vegetables followed by chocolate mousse and the price $10.00.  This must be booked in advance at the Academy office - 60684 / 67195.

The Bourne Supremacy (21 May)
Thursday 21 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
After escaping from the plots, danger and pain they encountered in 'The Bourne Identity', Jason Bourne and his girlfriend Marie begin a new life far away. But when an assassination attempt on Bourne goes horribly wrong, he must re-enter the life he wanted to leave behind in order to find out why he is still being hunted.
'A thriller with a brain, a grown up film for grown ups.'  [Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide]
'Such an exhilarating thriller ... don't be surprised if you leave the movie sweaty and exhausted from the workout!'  [David Denby, New Yorker]
Admission: $3.00 [free to Film members]   Supper available from 6.30 p.m. - must be ordered in advance.
[The final film in the trilogy, 'The Bourne Ultimatum', will be shown on Thursday 4 June]

Wagner: Rienzi (22 May)
Friday 22 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
In 'Rienzi', the young Wagner took on the world of French 'Grand Opera', a traditional form that typically featured five acts and as much spectacle as the stage could hold, including ballets, rousing processionals, huge choral numbers and special stage effects. He embraced the tradition enthusiastically, saying that Rienzi should 'outdo all previous examples with sumptuous extravagance' and in the process created an opera that has been described as 'Wagner for those who don't like Wagner'!
'Director Jorge Lavelli and conductor Pinchas Steinberg make much sense of the personal drama of Wagner's grand Romantic opera... I was moved. Good sound, sensible pictures and a well-rehearsed result. Buy it!'  [Gramophone, November 2013]
Admission: $3.00  [free to Red Carpet members]   Dinner available during the interval ($10.00) - must be ordered in advance.

50 Club Inaugural Draw (28 May)
Thursday 28 May in the Academy Foyer at 6.45 p.m.
Membership forms and full details are available from the Academy office.
Supper available from 6.00 p.m. - must be ordered in advance.

Guys and Dolls (28 May)
Thursday 28 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.15 p.m.
All the hot gamblers are in town, and they're all depending on Nathan Detroit to set up this week's incarnation of 'The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York'; the only problem is that he needs $1000 for a deposit on the ideal place to hold it. Throw in Sarah Brown, who's short on sinners at the mission she runs; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan's $1000 bet that he can't get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her; Police Lieutenant Brannigan, who always seems to appear at the wrong time; and the music/lyrics of Frank Loesser - and you've got quite a musical!
'A musical fairly glittering with intelligence and invention.'  [Time Out, 24 June 2006]
'The showtunes are weapons-grade: especially Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat, which never fails to get any audience on its feet. A must.'  [Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian]
Admission: $3.00 [free to Film members]   Supper available from 6.00 p.m. - must be ordered in advance.

Haydn: The Seasons (29 May)
Friday 29 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
'The Seasons' was one of the last works Haydn wrote, a wonderfully varied and detailed summation of his composing life. A contemporary review of the first performance commented that 'silent reverence, amazement and loud enthusiasm alternated, for the powerful appearance of colossal visions and the immeasurable abundance of splendid ideas surprised and overwhelmed the boldest expectations.'  A review of the present performance from the 2013 Salzburg Festival was rather more succinct: 'Jubilation!'
'This is a splendid, inspiriting performance of a life-giving work. It's superbly executed by a 60-strong VPO, given a quasi-period makeover by Harnoncourt, and the elite of the Vienna State Opera Chorus, whose firm-toned sopranos are a world away from the fruity warblers of old... Boesch is a robust, genial Simon... ' [Gramophone November 2014]
Admission: $3.00  [free to Red Carpet members]   Dinner available during the interval ($10.00) - must be ordered in advance.

Our speaker for May is Natalia Baker and she will talk on Cry for Freedom: Is Your Soul Free?
Highlands Sports Club, 1 Glen Esk Ave, off Sloane St, behind the Runiville Shops, off Glenara Ave, Harare.
Wednesday, 27 May, 6.30pm for 7pm.
 
We are living in a critical mass awakening on this planet, experiencing the best of times and the worst of times. Have you noticed how the cry for freedom is reverberating everywhere like a huge wave rising from the collective unconscious? But real freedom can only come from within. It is the true nature of your soul.  If you feel you are trapped right now by your life, your relationship, your health, your finances, this  practical, helpful talk will give you understanding and insights for your personal journey and into what is happening on a global scale.
 
Natalia Baker has taught in the field of personal development internationally, following a successful academic career and has also studied metaphysics at the Oneness University in Chennai.  She is regularly on radio and television, and has had films made on her life and her work. Her book Seize the Day – A Guidebook for Changing Times is now a best seller and her articles appear regularly in printed and digital publications.  A much-loved teacher, Natalia demonstrates great wisdom, insight, humour and life experience.
 
Our talks are followed by a bring and share supper, to which everyone attending is asked to contribute, with a plate of sweet or savoury, so we have a meal of interest and variety. The bar is open, and the Club is pleased when we patronize it.
 
A donation of $5.00 from non-members is requested at the door, to help cover our expenses in hiring the hall, and to pay the kitchen staff. Everyone is welcome, as are new members and therapists.
 
Subs for 2015 are due, and can be paid at the door or contact Naomi on 0772 338017 if you are unable to make the evening meeting.
