One of America’s favourite operas takes to the big screen. James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants. “If you’re going to stage Gershwin’s opera, this is how,” raved the Guardian when the new production premiered in London in 2018. David Robertson conducts a dynamic cast, featuring the sympathetic duo of Eric Owens and Angel Blue in the title roles and an all-star ensemble that includes Golda Schultz, Latonia Moore, Denyce Graves, Frederick Ballentine, and Alfred Walker.

We’re welcoming you to the amazing famous Disney’s show-story about the students of the High School that deal with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities. Michelle Nonyelu, hand in hand with Natalie Thompson and Melanie Ballard, create a theatrical frenzy with the 40 talented international children who make-up the cast of High School Musical. Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on the main stage of our city, with music and lyrics by Matthew Gerrard, Robbie Nevil and others, and a book by David Simpatico. The music has been adapted, arranged and produced by Bryan Louiselle.

It's the first day after winter break at East High. All the students find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the new year. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met before on winter vacation, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical that is being led by Ms.Darbus. Although many guys, particularly, jealous Sharpay Evan, resent the threat posed to the "status quo", Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well. The play addresses topical issues of diversity; inclusivity, change and the notion of reaching for the ‘stars’ no matter who tries to stop you, is wholeheartedly embraced. “On a daily basis, I work with young people who are struggling with self-esteem issues and thus align themselves with what is familiar and therefore safe in their eyes. High School Musical suggests, that they should dare to venture into the unknown and associate with other groups as in there, lies their development. I am so excited as the cast has learnt so much from the themes and issues raised in the play and I know the audience will too.” —Director, Michelle Nonyelu

The principal players are: Marco Elverdas (Troy Bolton), Nguyen Vu Thuc Doan/ Marcella Burgess (Gabriella Montez), Melina Demetriou (Taylor McKessie) Sophia Paraskevaides/ Maria Bott (Sharpay Evans), Daniel Jones (Chad), Alexander Polivar (Zeke), Ekaterina Shapyrina (Ms Darbus), Marko Linta (Coach Bolton)

The creative team for High School Musical includes: Michelle Nonyelu (Artistic Director & Director), Natalie Thompson (Choreographer), Melanie Ballard (Music Director), Alexandra Pavlou (Dance Coach), Lise Constantinou Briggs (Scenic Designer), Dave Mackay (Sound Designer) Mike Lavey (Lighting Designer) Fiona Greavey (Costume Designer)

Directions: The theatre is next to the Karavella bus station in the upper town, just off the Polis Road behind the petrol station. MARKIDEION MUNICIPAL THEATRE OF PAPHOS, 27 Andrea Geroudi Street, Paphos. Tel: 26222286.

AGRIPPINA – Handel – MET OPERA

Saturday 29 February 7.55pm

K-Cineplex Kings Avenue Mall Paphos

Tickets: €18 / €14

Box Office: pay on the door

Information: Tel: 77778383. www.kcineplex.com. www.paphosmusiclovers.com

Duration: 3 hours 45 minutes

Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome arrives in cinemas on February 29, with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius.

Directions: The cinema is upstairs in the shopping mall, just off Tombs of the Kings Road in the centre of lower Paphos. K CINEPLEX PAPHOS, Kings Avenue Mall, Leoforos Tafi Vasileon 2, 8046 Paphos. Tel: 77778383. www.kcineplex.com/en/cine-events. Facebook: @kcineplexcy
