Tony Stockwell - psychic medium

January 28, 7.30pm


It’s NOT creepy or kooky, mysterious or spooky. It’s psychic medium Tony Stockwell demonstrating his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones.

At its best, mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and to instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose.

During his 20 years working as a medium, Stockwell has constantly worked to push the boundaries of his communication.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House – Rigoletto

February 21, 7.30pm

£30, £28 concessions

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House make their first appearance at The Cresset with Rigoletto – a tragic tale of misunderstanding, revenge and sacrifice.

Rigoletto is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave and based on the play “Le Roi s’amuse” by Victor Hugo.

Its tragic story revolves around the hunchbacked court jester, Rigoletto, his beautiful daughter Gilda he loves (but had kept secret from the Court) and the Duke of Mantua he serves.

This is an opportunity for opera lovers to see Rigoletto as never before with an established and long standing Russian theatre that continues to grow on the international stage and win awards in the field of opera and ballet.

Even his look, created through a two-hour theatrical make-up process, is the exact image of MJ.

The show features a live band that has supported Beyonce, Katy Perry and The Script, to name a few, and backed by an all-girl dance crew performing the classic routines.
