As young Ivan IV is crowned, he has to choose one of the 13 Boyar daughters to be his wife and tsarina. He selects Anastasia, and the two eventually fall deeply in love. When the Boyars plot against him and poison his beloved wife, Tsar Ivan finds himself surrounded by enemies. Haunted by dark thoughts and phantoms, he slowly sinks into madness.Drawing on the music composed by Prokofiev for the 1944 Eisenstein film, Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. Yuri Grigorovich’s powerful and fascinating epic dramatises Ivan the Terrible’s controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th-century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigour, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colours of medieval Russia. Recently revived, Ivan the Terrible is an essential part of the company’s repertoire, a 20th-century classic and a wonderful theatrical experience. ... read less

In 2013 -14 I completed my Masters in Fine Art as Contemporary Practice at Falmouth School of Art. I was living on our family's 24ft Folk Boat and it was whilst night sailing her round from my home town of Dartmouth that I started thinking slightly melancholy thoughts of all those who hadn't made it to harbour on this beautiful but dangerous bit of coast. My research was based around sailor's superstitions, nautical crafts, beach-combing, shipwreck, romantic notions of being lost at sea and the relics and treasures the sea sometimes offers up. Two of the final pieces were 'Fathom'; a 6ft ceramic sculpture of arms, hand-painted and glazed with tattoos and temporarily sunk in the sea before being partially recovered (they broke and the remaining sections are still at sea), and exhibited as an installation and 'Sea Blanket'; an ever-growing hand-sewn patchwork of beach-combed fabric which I intend to be a lifelong endeavour and which is exhibited as a sculptural installation. I hope one day the broken sherds of my arms will wash ashore, when I'm collecting new fabric I keep a hopeful eye out. The projects were intended to be a curious combination of the decorative and domestic with the romantic sublime. Also on show are a selection of handmade prints made over nearly a decade with the Dartington Print Workshop, including some linocuts of a Dartington fir cone printed in Dartington soil ... read less

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium. ... read less

There is a need for strategies that lead to the revitalization of small and medium sized farms, and point the way towards the reshaping of the entire agricultural policy and food system in ways that are economically viable to farmers and consumers. Currently proposed "sustainable intensification" in agriculture is ideologically buttressed by intellectual projects to reframe and redefine agroecology by stripping it of its political and social content and promoting the wrong notion that agro-ecological methods can co-exist alongside the aggressive expansion of transgenic crops and agrofuels. Many environmental and advocacy groups privilege those with access to capital and perpetuate an "agriculture of the poor for the rich". The technological determinism that the organic agriculture movement emphasizes, through development and dissemination of low-input or appropriate technologies, is not only naïve but also dangerous, as it assumes these technologies in themselves have the capability of initiating beneficial social changes. ... read less
