Join us for a season of dance, theatre, music and opera.

2016 is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, no surprise then that Shakespeare features right across our 2016 programme. From classical music, and rock’n roll Shakespeare musicals to swinging Shakespearean Jazz, Shakespeare-inspired dance, an exhibition of Russian photographs and, of course, even some of his plays! Our Masters in Classical and Contemporary Text students will perform Shakespeare classics, Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing.


Highlights this season include; Musical Theatre’s dark and oppressive production of Cabaret; the annual graduation performance from our Modern Ballet students; in Opera we have Two Russian Tales; Mavra by Stravinsky and The Bear by Walton , as well as Owen Wingrave by Benjamin Britten.


We continue to offer a generous roster of musical performances covering classical, jazz, Traditional music, orchestras, ensembles and masterclasses led by some of the finest artists in the world. An entire series of BBC Radio 3 concerts dedicated to the pianist/accompanist Malcolm Martineau and the hugely popular Sunday morning Hilary Rosin Coffee Concert Series continue this February. In May, RCS’s critically acclaimed festival of new work Plug turns 10 years old, with so many exciting premiers over the four-day festival, including a new opera for film by Henry McPherson, we hope you’ll help us celebrate.


Staff and students value the support the audience brings to these events; you play your part in the student journey towards a professional performance career. We hope you’ll join us for as many performances as you can squeeze into your diary.
