Othello

Othello is the greatest general of his age. But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.

Witness a mountain of mysterious magic, a hatful of hyper-reality and - of course - a truck full of tricks and tea. (Sadly there are no actual mountains or trucks on stage during the show, Mr West simply would not have them.) Mixing brain busting illusion and good old-fashioned tom-foolery, Morgan & West present a show for all the family, where magic and silliness abound! Fun for ages 5 to 105*. *105 is rather an arbitrary upper age limit really - it just seemed to flow well in the prose.

Witness a mountain of mysterious magic, a hatful of hyper-reality and - of course - a truck full of tricks and tea. (Sadly there are no actual mountains or trucks on stage during the show, Mr West simply would not have them.) Mixing brain busting illusion and good old-fashioned tom-foolery, Morgan & West present a show for all the family, where magic and silliness abound! Fun for ages 5 to 105*. *105 is rather an arbitrary upper age limit really - it just seemed to flow well in the prose.

British composer Guy Woolfenden OBE was Head of Music at the Royal Shakespeare Company for 37 years, working with some of the company’s finest actors and directors. He wrote over 150 scores for numerous RSC productions and adapted some of this music for performance in the concert hall. Guy Woolfenden’s wind band scores are widely recognised as appealing and memorable to conductors, players and audiences alike. Sadly, Guy was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. In celebration of Guy’s lifetime of music-making, Birmingham Symphonic Winds (conductor: Keith Allen) will perform all 14 of Guy’s pieces for wind band in the presence of the composer.
