Downton Abbey
(31 March, 7 & 14 April)
Thursday 31 March in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.  
Set in the years preceding World War I, the series that took Britain by storm last year tells the story of a complicated community.  Downton Abbey has been home to the Crawley family for many generations, but it is also where the servants live and plan and dream, and they are as fiercely jealous of their rank as anyone.  Some of them are loyal to the family but others are moving through, on the look out for betterment, love or just adventure.  But for all the passions that rage beneath the surface, this appears to be a secure world, serene and ordered which will last for ever.  Little do family or servants know that events that will change everything are about to occur.  "Sumptuous, instantly riveting" [The Daily Telegraph]
Admission: $3.00 [$6.00 the series]
 
P.D.Q.Bach: The Abduction of Figaro (1 April)
Friday 1 April in in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m. - with supper interval
Appropriately for 1 April, a recording of the world premiere performance of a "simply grand opera" by the last and least of Bach's twenty-odd children, P.D.Q.Bach (1807-1742?).
Admission: $3.00  [free to Red Carpet members]

iThemba (2 April)
Saturday 2 April in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
iThemba is a documentary directed by the Oscar award-winning (Music by Prudence) film maker Elinor Burkett.  The film was launched by the American Embassy in Harare in March and was a great hit.  Now it is the turn of Bulawayo. Don't miss this film about our very own band LIYANA, based at KGVI Centre.
Admission: $5.00.  Tickets will be sold at the door and will include a glass of wine.  All proceeds to KGVI.
 
Peterhouse Choir, Jazz Band and marimbas (8 April)
Friday 8 April in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
This choir was started last year in January and comprises members of both Peterhouse Girls and Peterhouse Boys. They have performed at various concerts as well as giving their own at the end of last year when they earned their first standing ovation. The programme includes "Mama Tembu's wedding", Xhosa, Zulu, Shona and Ndebele traditional songs and "Plea for Africa" by J.B. Nokwe and will also feature the jazz band and marimba group.
Admission: $5.00  [free to Red Carpet members]

Ballet Double Bill: Le Corsaire and The Dream (15 April)
Friday in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.- with supper interval.
The Corsair is a colourful extravaganza with a preposterous plot, magnificent scenic effects and dramatic choreography.  It is one of Petipa's less known but most exotic ballets and contains some of his most spectacular choreography, done full justice in this recording from the Kirov Ballet made in 1989.  The Dream, by contrast, is one of Sir Frederick Ashton's best-loved ballets, created for the Shakespeare quatercentenary in 1964 and shown here in a production by the American Ballet Theatre with Alexandra Ferri as Titania.
Admission: $3.00  [free to Red Carpet members]  

Bulawayo Chamber Music Society (16 April)

The concert will include the following works for piano trio played by Donald Walsh (violin), Cynthia Pretorius (cello) and Deon Marcus (piano): Haydn: Trio in E flat major; Reinecke: Trio in E major; arr.Cynthia Pretorius: Celtic Suite.  There will also be some vocal music including Handel's Ombra ma fui (better known as "Handel's Largo"), Stranger in Paradise, Jealousy, Cinema Paradiso, Panis Angelicus and a medley of Italian Songs when the singers will be Pieter Cloete and Graham Bishop.
No advance booking.  Tickets at the door from 5.30 p.m. $5.00  [free to Red Carpet members]

Our monthly gathering at Highlands Sports Club will be on Tuesday, 12 April, at 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm.
Please note earlier start to accommodate the AGM, which we ask everyone to attend as we are introducing a revised constitution.
We need your support everyone. Please be there.
Our speaker will be Dell Smith, a well-known and well-loved natural therapist who has treated thousands of people over the 40 years in which she has practised in Harare. Dell works as a homeopath, and uses a variety of therapies, although she modestly sums up her work in the following few words;  
"I qualified as a Naturopath in 1969 through the Naturopathic College of South Africa, which is no longer in existence. I was taught to work with the pendulum by Sister Marie Naude, a Naturopath from Cape Town,  and learnt to use a radionic instrument for diagnosis. I worked and studied with Dr. Andrew Cox, a Homoeopath and Osteopath  in Harare,for two and a half years before he left in March 1971. He referred many of his patients to me  and I started practising in a small way at that time. My talk, after the AGMm will be about the many memorable moments which have occurred during my forty years of practice."
Everyone will find Dell's talk of interest and value, and most of us have been to her as patients, so come and hear some of her memories and stories.
After the talk we will have a "Bring and Share Supper", and we ask that everyone who attends will bring a plate of snacks towards the meal, or a pudding or salad. It is a pleasant evening, and the bar will be open for drinks. A small donation is requested at the door to cover our costs of hall hire and the help of the kitchen staff. Everyone is welcome, and new members invited to join, and we always welcome new therapists.
