Wyrd Sisters
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
RADS present an adaptation of Terry Pratchett's best-selling work.

Running from Thu 28th - Sat 30th July and Thu 4th - Sat 6th August.

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till the knob comes off. It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

If you love Discworld, you'll love this; if you've never heard of Discworld, you'll still love it. If you love Shakespeare, prepare to be affronted...!

"The duke had a mind that ticked like a clock and, like a clock, it regularly went cuckoo."

One of Britain's leading comedians looks at everything from morris dancing to Morrisey - plus support.

Shappi is celebrating the 40th anniversary of her arrival in Britain. She’s reclaiming patriotism, sending a love letter to her adopted land.

Star of Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News for You and QI, she is back with a brand new show.

She has whip-crack jokes and is effortlessly funny as she handles every subject with a razor-sharp wit, softened only by her deliciously mischievous delivery and endless charm.

Shappi is also the best-selling author of A Beginner’s Guide to Acting English and her debut novel Nina Is Not OK was published this summer. She was also recently elected President of the British Humanist Society.

Over 16’s only.

“She has plenty to say, and says it with pointedness and potency.” The Guardian

“Seriously funny and surprisingly filthy.” The New Statesman

“Makes live comedy thrilling.” London Evening Standard.

Tickets cost £16 (includes restoration levy) and are available from the Box Office. Tel: 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.

Grace Ashcroft might be seen by some as a poor old lady, “a dear old soul”, but the tale she tells of her younger days as a lusty farm girl and the strange sacrifice she made to keep “her” man is by turns hilarious and chilling.

Cold Comfort Farm meets A Picture of Dorian Gray in this tongue-in-cheek version of Rudyard Kipling’s story of obsessive love.

Adapted by Nobby Dimon from the short story by Rudyard Kipling and directed by Vivienne Garnett.

Cut to 150 years in the past and the pioneers of chocolate are fighting other battles. John Jordan has discovered a revolutionary way to make chocolate – but can he persuade his tight-fisted landlord, Darius Sanguine, to finance his bold idea?

The Cleveland Chamber Orchestra is always a popular visitor to our concerts, and with a programme like tonight's that's not surprising. The leader of the Opera North Orchestra, David Greed, takes the baton for the first half, with two gorgeous and familiar works for string orchestra. After the interval, he reappears as the violin soloist in Vivaldi's famous Four Seasons, one of the best-selling classical recordings ever. This quartet of miniature concertos ends with a bright and chilly invocation of Winter - just the thing for a December evening!

Frith Piano Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
Return visit by a high-quality chamber ensemble

Schubert Piano Quintet in A major, 'The Trout'
Mozart Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor K478
----------
Vaughan Williams Piano Quintet in C minor

We haven't had a visit from the full Frith Quartet since 2009, and it's good to welcome them back. This time the group is accompanied by John Tattersdill (double-bassist for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra). In Schubert's Trout the unusual instrumentation brings an added richness to this sunny, attractive work, and allows the cello to be more playful than is usual. Vaughan Williams chose the same un-familiar lineup for his own Brahmsian Piano Quintet. In between the two quintets is Mozart's K478, widely held to be the first major piano quartet in the chamber music repertoire, and considered exceptionally difficult when it was published. Fortunately that shouldn't be a problem for tonight's pianist, the excellent Benjamin Frith.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 20, No. 2
Joseph Phibbs String Quartet No. 1
----------
​Beethoven String Quartet No. 13, Op. 130 (with the Grosse Fuge)

This prize-winning quartet impressed us on a previous visit to Richmond. Now they're back, with a Haydn opener, then a work by the young British composer Joseph Phibbs, commissioned by the Piatti Quartet, funded by the Britten–Pears Foundation and the Vaughan Williams Trust, and praised by the Sunday Times as "exhilarating... [a] combination of vibrancy and rigour".

After the interval comes a real monster: Beethoven's Op. 130 Quartet - one of his celebrated 'Late Quartets' - in six movements, ending with the optional, mighty Grosse Fuge.

Carducci Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
The Carducci are always a huge hit with our audiences - superb musicians, and one of the finest string quartets around.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 20, No. 4
Glass String Quartet No. 2
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 11
----------
Webern Langsamer Satz
Beethoven String Quartet Op. 95

How many times have we had the Carducci Quartet? We think this must be their sixth visit to Richmond, and they are always a huge hit with our audiences. Superb musicians, personable, with an exceptional rapport, they are one of the finest string quartets around.

Tonight the Carduccis perform a generously proportioned concert. It includes a much-loved Haydn piece, one of the very first 'modern' string quartets, and Webern's highly charged Langsamer Satz, described as a "little masterpiece". Composed in 1905, Langsamer Satz was never publicly performed - astonishingly - until 1962, just a few years before Shostakovich's very different, very intense Quartet No. 11. The piece by Philip Glass is a companion to his Third Quartet, which the Carduccis performed in Richmond a few years ago, and which gave our audience such pleasure.

What a wonderful close to the 2016-17 Richmondshire Concerts season.
