PETER PAN OPENS AT REGENT’S PARK OPEN AIR THEATRE A revival of their 2015 Olivier Awardnominated production, Peter Pan, launches the 2018 season on on 17 May at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in the final year of the First World War Centenary Commemorations. For the wounded soldiers of WW1, imagination is their only escape. Yet as they’re transported to the fantastical lagoons and pirate ships of Never Land, allegories of the war they’ve left behind are ever present. George Llewelyn Davies, later killed in action in 1915, was one of the children who inspired J. M. Barrie to create the iconic character of Peter Pan. Remembering him, and a generation of Lost Boys, the production enchanted young and old alike during its original, critically acclaimed run. Directed by Open Air Theatre Artistic Director Timothy Sheader (Jesus Christ Superstar, To Kill a Mockingbird, Running Wild) and Liam Steel (Lord of the Flies, Into The Woods), with set design is by Jon Bausor who recently won the UK Theatre Award for The Grinning Man (Bristol Old Vic). Other productions in the 2018 season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre include Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw (22–30 June), in a coproduction with English National Opera; Shakespeare’s As You Like It (6 July – 28 July); Dinosaur World Live for ages 3+ (15 Aug – 9 Sept) and Little Shop of Horrors (3 Aug – 15 Sept), based on the film by Roger Corman with screenplay by Charles Griffith. MOREoutdoor events at Regent’s Park include The Guilty Feminist (15 July); Joe Lycett (22 July); Jimmy Carr (12 Aug); Simon Amstell (19 Aug) and The Luna Cinema present outdoor screenings of Spice World (26 Aug), The Greatest Showman (2 Sept) and Alien (9 Sept). Box Office tel: 0844 826 4242. CHESS RETURNS TO LONDON The first West End production of Chess since 1986, starring Michael Ball as Anatoly, Alexandra Burke as Svetlana, Cedric Neal as The Arbiter, Tim Howar as Freddie, Cassidy Janson as Florence and Phillip Browne as Molokov, is playing at the London Coliseum for a 5 week season. This is the fourth production in collaboration with English National Opera by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade, who brought Sunset Boulevard, Carousel and Sweeney Todd to the London Coliseum, the home of ENO. Michael Linnit and Michael Grade also produced 42nd Street, currently playing at Theatre Royal Drury Lane. CHESS was written in 1984 by ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King, Evita), and the original London production starred Elaine Paige, Murray Head and Tommy Korberg. That production, which ran for three years at the Prince Edward Theatre, followed a highly successful recording featuring the same stars, and included the international hit singles I Know Him So Well and One Night In Bangkok. Other well-known songs from the score include Anthem, Someone Else’s Story, Heaven Help my Heart and Pity The Child. CHESS tells a story of love and political intrigue, set against the background of the Cold War in the late 1970s/early 1980s, in which superpowers attempt to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends. Two of the world’s greatest chess masters, one American, one Russian, are in danger of becoming the pawns of their governments as their battle for the world title gets under way. Simultaneously their lives are thrown into further confusion by a Hungarian refugee, a remarkable woman who becomes the centre of their emotional triangle. This mirrors the heightened passions of the political struggles that threaten to destroy lives and loves. The return of the sensational score to the London stage is an important musical theatre landmark. Tim Howar in Chess.

FORMER EASTENDERS STARS MAKES WEST END DEBUT IN WICKED Former EastEnders star David Witts is returning from three years in LA to make his West End debut as ‘Fiyero’ in WICKED, the hit musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, from Monday 23 July. David Witts starred as ‘Joey Branning’ in the BBC serial drama EastEnders, for which he won ‘Best Newcomer’ at the 2013 National Television Awards. For American television, he has most recently been a series regular in Recovery Road (for ABC/Freeform) and I Ship It (for the CW Network). Michael McCabe, Executive Producer (UK) of WICKED said: ‘We are delighted that David Witts is returning to the UK to star as Fiyero in Wicked. David has proved himself to be an accomplished and popular actor on both stage and screen since his award-winning debut as ‘Joey Branning’ in EastEnders back in 2012, and he has all the qualities to be a fantastic Fiyero’. Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, WICKED tells the story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West. Box office telephone 0844 871 3001. NORTHERN LIGHTS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AND ADAM JOHNSON Multi prize-winning pianist Adam Johnson was a Scholar and Junior Fellow at The Royal Northern College of Music UK, performing under the baton of Kent Nagano, Martyn Brabbins and George Hurst, making his Concerto debut aged 15 playing Mozart Piano Concerto No. 15 in Pavlovsk Palace, St. Petersburg, conducting from the piano. He furthered his piano studies with Professor Peter Feuchtwanger who has described him as in possession of ‘an excellent technique and full of fantasy’. Unique among the outstanding artists of his generation, Johnson is as equally at home conducting opera as he is fulfilling the role of soloist in concerto repertoire, playing chamber music, or directing his own large-scale compositions. In 2008, he completed a Master’s Degree in Conducting at The RNCM under the direction of Sir Mark Elder C.B.E, and was awarded the Ricordi Operatic Conducting Prize 2007. Adam is currently the Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of The Ńorthern Lights Symphony Ørchestra. They will perform Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Piano Concerto No.5 and Symphony No.7 at St Martin in the Fields on Tuesday 22 May. Box Office telephone 020 7766 1100. SJSS YOUNG ARTIST MATHILDE MILWIDSKY WORLD PREMIERE On 31 May at St John’s Smith Square, award-winning 23 year old British violinist, Mathilde Milwidsky, will perform an evening recital with acclaimed pianist Huw Watkins as part of her place on the St John’s Smith Square Young Artist Scheme, including the world premiere of a specially commissioned piece by Sally Beamish. The programme highlights another female composer – Clara Schumann – whose under-performed and searingly beautiful Three Romances Op. 22 will follow on from Sally’s piece. Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 8, Elgar’s majestic Violin Sonata and Ravel’s Tzigane will finish the programme. INNOVATION MONTH AT YAMAHA MUSIC LONDON Innovation has always been at the heart of music – and not just in the creation of new melodies, arrangements and solos. Even the most traditional of today's musical instruments were a revelation when first created, allowing for brand new timbres and new forms of musicianship. Yamaha continues to push those boundaries, from new technologies which transform traditional instruments, to ground-breaking synthesis engines and effects which allow us to create previously unimaginable sounds. Visitors to Yamaha Music London, the world-famous music shop at 152-160 Wardour Street during May, will be able to have a closer look at some of Yamaha’s most exciting innovations. From traditional pianos which, at the press of a button, can sound like a full symphonic orchestra, to electric violins, whose tone, in conjunction with effects systems, can be entirely transformed. The Future of the Electric Guitar, on 12 & 19 May, uses the remarkable Yamaha TransAcoustic technology, where the body of the guitar resonates not only with the acoustic vibration of the air and strings, but also with the sound of detailed reverb or chorus. The effect is jaw-dropping. www.yamahamusiclondon.com Trans-Acoustic guitar. 11 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
