Robyn Hitchcock

Fri 17 Sep • 8pm • Full £20 • Music

Proudly Presented by RMT Music

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’, an in-concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as “paintings you can listen to”. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. Out on April 21st 2017, the album is produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as an “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.” It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more.

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone


“These 10 gems slither, rock, roll, glide and shapeshift, coalescing around Hitchcock’s typically anxious, strained but striking and immediately identifiable vocals.” 
– American Songwriter

The Barber of Seville

Thu 15 & Fri 16 Jul • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £13 • Music

By Gioacchino Rossini
Presented by Bath Opera

Restoration Comedy meets Whitehall Farce. 
Subterfuge, mistaken identity, sleight of hand… and lovely music.

Figaro is central to the plot and uses all his cunning and brains to manipulate the rest of the cast.
Bartolo an elderly Doctor seeks to make beautiful Rosina more than his ward by marrying her.  She has other ideas…

Master of disguises Count Almaviva, (aka Lindoro, aka a drunken soldier, aka a singing teacher) is madly in love with Rosina – although he has never actually met her! With Figaro’s help she tries to thwart Bartolo’s plans to marry her.
Rosina is no shrinking violet and rather fancies Lindoro (who is really the Count). Gentlemen beware if you dare to cross Rosina!

Add to the mix the greedy music teacher Don Basilio who runs with the hare and the hounds but has his price when it comes to whose side he is actually on – and the result is glorious mayhem!
