8 Bradley Jaden (Fiyero) and Sophie Evans (Glinda) in Wicked. WICKED ANNOUNCES 25th NEW BOOKING PERIOD Wicked, the smash hit musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, has announced the opening of its 25th new booking period. Over 500,000 new tickets for ‘the world class West End musical’ (Official London Theatre) have been released, with booking extended to 24 May 2019. ‘The gravity-defying Wizard of Oz prequel’ (Time Out London) recently became the 7th longest running show currently playing in the West End. When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch, we only ever heard one side of the story. Gregory Maguire’s ‘outstanding novel’ (The Independent), ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’, ingeniously re- imagines the Land of Oz, creating a parallel universe to the familiar story written by L. Frank Baum and first published as ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ in 1900. Wicked tells the story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two young women who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a Photo: Matt Crockett misunderstood green girl named Elphaba. Following an encounter with The Wizard, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West. For tickets, telephone the box office on 0844 871 3001. CITY OF LONDON CHOIR PERFORM MENDELSSOHN’S ELIJAH The highly acclaimed City of London Choir and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra join forces again to perform the great epic Elijah: intense biblical drama, brought to life by Mendelssohn’s beautiful and powerful score. The concert will take place at the Barbican on 13 February at 19.30. The story of the great prophet, an important figure in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is full of drama: false gods, famine and flood; ravens and resurrection; earthquake, wind and fire. The oratorio was immediately taken to the hearts of the British audience for whom it was written, thanks to its strong characters and narrative, rich orchestral colour and stirring choruses. This will be an exciting interpretation with world class solo performers, including baritone Njabulo Madlala in the title role. The concert will help to raise funds and awareness for the City-based charity The Sheriffs’ and Recorder’s Fund, which supports ex-prisoners and their families, to help them stop offending and build a new life. For further information and tickets, call the box office on 020 7638 8891. City of London Choir. t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e
