The female-driven story of family reconciliation is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser packed with music and laughs. MIST & THE MAIDEN (La niebla y la doncella). Adapted from Lorenzo Silva’s best-selling novel, this gripping mystery follows a cold case investigation on the Spanish Canary Islands.

 

DYING (Morir) from breakout director Fernando Franco – a follow-up to his Goya Award winning debut Wounded. This evocative drama stars Marian Álvarez as Marta, a vivacious woman understandably pushed to the edge of her emotional limits when her partner is diagnosed with a brain tumour. 

Ravel’s Bolero & Two Pianos


Friday 11 May, 7.30pm, Perth Concert Hall

 

A double concerto premiere and Boléro’s unstoppable energy!

 

Three colourful works frame Carl Vine’s Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra, given its world premiere in Perth by luminaries Piers Lane and Kathryn Stott.
First, Stravinsky’s witty and elegant Dumbarton Oaks, a neo-classical jewel of the repertoire inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg concertos. Then the jaunty satire of Prokofiev’s suite from the 1934 film Lieutenant Kijé. And finally, the hypnotic Boléro, building inexorably to a finale that’s nothing short of ecstatic!
