St Magnus International Festival

St Magnus International Festival is Orkney's annual celebration of the arts. Founded in 1977 by a group including Orkney's distinguished resident composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, the Festival has grown from small beginnings into one of Britain's most highly regarded and adventurous arts events. This 41st Festival includes events in Dounby, Hoy, Kirkwall, Rousay, Sandwick, Stromness and Stronsay.

The unique combination of world-class performance, community participation of the highest quality and the magic of Orkney at midsummer attracts audiences from throughout Britain and further afield: many return year after year.

Though musical events are at the heart of the artistic programme, the Festival also encompasses drama, dance, literature and the visual arts.

William Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing - in One Hour

Drama students from Niagara University, USA

Don Pedro, Prince of Arragon, pays a visit to Leonata, the governor of Messina, while returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother, Don John. Accompanying him are two of his officers, Benedick and Claudio. While in Messina, Claudio falls for Leonato's daughter, Hero; Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice, the governor's niece. The budding love between Claudio and Hero prompts Don Pedro to arrange with Leonato for the marriage.

Meanwhile, the trickery begins as Don Pedro (with the help of Leonato and Claudio) attempts to sport with Benedick and Beatrice in an effort to make the two of them fall in love. Likewise, Hero and her waiting woman help to set up Beatrice. Both Benedick and Beatrice will think that the other has professed a great love for them.

Presented by the Live Literature Company on the Tea Lawn at Lauderdale House.
Directed by Valerie Doulton.
You are welcome to bring a picnic, blanket or chair. Chairs will be seated at the back.

Patronage in Music and Arts from Thomas Howard to Napoleon

Tomasz Lis, piano

J S Bach: Italian Concerto BWV 971
Haydn: Sonata in D, No 50, H XVI/37
Haydn: Sonata in B, No 47, H XVI/32
Beethoven: 15 Variations in E flat major with a Fugue on 'Eroica', Op 35

Music in Unique Venues

Polish-born pianist Tomasz Lis presents the sixth concert in the series of Music At Unique Venues. Lauderdale House was built in 1582 during the reign of Elisabeth I. In 1645 the house was inherited by the Earl of Lauderdale and visited by such notable people as Charles II, Samuel Pepys and Nell Gwynn.

During the evening, Tomasz will give a concert as well as discussing the subject of patronage in music and arts illustrated with paintings by Van Dyck, Raphael, Rubens, Philippe de Champaigne, Canaletto and Ingres.

Wine will be served during the interval and the audience will have exclusive access to the house and its surrounding gardens.

In a world of increasingly standardised experiences Music At Unique Venues Concert Series allows the audience to enjoy the music and art in an entirely new, exciting and indulgent way. Each concert is given at spectacular and unusual venues, often not open to the general public. Every evening has a theme reflected in the programme as well as in the lecture given on art taking place during the concert. Art often reflects on the music performed, sometimes it's in opposition to it but there is always a thought-provoking link between the two. Paintings are projected on the screen and available for contemplation during the concert. The aim is to present music in its wider cultural, political, historical context and not as an isolated art form. Guests are welcome to enjoy fabulous surroundings having a glass of wine or a candlelight dinner of exquisite cuisine during the interval.

A celebration of the start of the second year of London Oriana Choir's innovative five15 project to promote women composers with two world premieres, performed in the iconic venue of the Sammy Ofer Gallery in the dry berth of Cutty Sark. The performance will begin at 8.15pm. Doors will be open to the public from 7.15pm.

Young British composer Rebecca Dale has been chosen as the second composer-in-residence for the ground-breaking five15 project to champion the musical talent of women composers.

Rebecca’s year will kick off in style next month with the world première of her first work for the choir, the a cappella Radiate, at a special concert entitled From the depths on Wednesday 5th July. The performance takes place in the Sammy Ofer Gallery beneath the historic Cutty Sark, the last tea clipper of her kind, as part of the London Oriana Choir's residency at the Royal Museums Greenwich.

From the depths marks the start of the second year of five15. The performance programme is comprised entirely of works composed by a diverse range of women, including Kerry Andrew, Dobrinka Tabakova and of course Rebecca Dale, as well as a second world première, of Ailsa Dixon's These things shall be. We are delighted and honoured that Rebecca, Kerry, Dobrinka and Ailsa will be attending the performance, as well as last year's five15 composer-in-residence and five15 Ambassador, Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

Premium ticket

Upgrade to a Premium ticket and enjoy a pre-performance drink of your choice on the main deck of Cutty Sark, while watching the summer sun set over the River Thames.
