Life is a Dream

In the same room, many decades apart: a woman incarcerated, presumed mad. A boy experiencing the world through his computer screen. A theatre group discovering a 400 year-old Spanish play with surprising relevance today.

As their parallel stories unfold, their room transforms. The characters are transported to a bustling city, a dense forest, an opulent garden, a vast arid plain. Could it be that too many of their dreams are coming true?

Life is a Dream is a spectacular new show that combines the vivid dance story-telling of choreographer Kim Brandstrup with the stunning visual imagination of filmmakers the Quay Brothers. Their contemporary take on Calderón’s classic play is a journey through alienation, vengeance, tenderness and redemption, set in an ever-changing, dream-like world and accompanied the rich, harmonious music of Witold Lutosławski, played by a full-size symphony orchestra.

With dramatic and lyrical dancing from our brilliant ensemble, Life is a Dream is a study of desires as recognisable in today’s mass-mediated world as at any time in the past 400 years: the longing for an authentic experience, and the need to dream.

RPCO: Star Trek in Concert

Prepare for warp speed once again… set your phasers to stun… and get ready to boldly go where no one has gone before… Star Trek – In Concert returns to the Royal Albert Hall as part of a Star Trek weekend also featuring Star Trek Beyond – In Concert, with Michael Giacchino’s score performed live by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by Ernst Van Tiel.

Released in 2009, J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek rebooted this legendary franchise, telling the story of how the crew of the USS Enterprise assembles, with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg and Leonard Nimoy.

The soaring and action-packed orchestral score was written by Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino. With a set of all new themes, but also reprising the beloved title melody from the TV series by Alexander Courage – the music does not just break new ground, but also captures and advances the musical universe of Star Trek.
