This is the tragic story of a married aristocrat/socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story starts when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother's unbridled womanizing - something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others. A bachelor, Vronsky is eager to marry her if she would agree to leave her husband Alexei Karenin, a government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, her own insecurities, and Karenin's indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life. Despite Vronsky's reassurances, she grows increasingly possessive and paranoid about his imagined infidelity, fearing loss of control. Music by Rodion Shchedrin and choreography by Alexei Ratmansky.

In the 1930s and '40s, hundreds of female musicians toured the country in glamorous all-girl bands, while others played side by side with their male counterparts. Yet by the mid-1950s, female jazz musicians had disappeared from the music scene; their names and their contributions to music, completely forgotten. We reveal the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 1930s to the present day. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism, and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire, and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.

The Beatles said that Harry Nilsson was their favourite American musician. Nilsson won two Grammys and was the recipient of 17 gold records, yet he is relatively unknown today. Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody's Talkin' About Him)?, a wildly entertaining, star-studded documentary, tells the story of one of the most talented singer-songwriters in pop music history. His hits include the Grammy-winning Everybody's Talkin and Without You as well as Coconut and One (Is The Loneliest Number). The film reveals how his personal life was as complex and contradictory as his music, from his spirited relationship with John Lennon to his close bond with Ringo Starr. Director John Scheinfeld paints a detailed and revelatory portrait of an extraordinary artist featuring over 50 Nilsson recordings, as well as rare or never-before-seen film clips, home movies, photos from the Nilsson family album and interviews from those who knew him well. As film critic Leonard Maltin noted, this is a vivid portrait of a gifted man. What a great reminder of his talent.

It is necessary that students are able to develop aural skills by exploring, imitating and recognising elements of music including dynamic, pitch and rhythm.
