Searching for: Presence



  • Celebrities in pantos - who's going where?
    John Barrowman, Beverley Knight and Al Murray all bolster the panto presence across the country
  • Hamlet (Royal Shakespeare Theatre)
    The RSC's new Hamlet is an an unruly, firecracker presence
  • Carmen
    The theoretically laudable habit of involving local arts groups in an Ellen Kent production can throw up some oddities, such as the initial march-up presence of a brass band (more Viva Espana than Viva Toreador) and the unaccompanied traditional lament which brings down the final curtain. In between we see a lively production with the sung Guirand recitatives. Eugen Ponomariov's surtitles are needed; the cast struggles to enunciate French.
