The Pearl

When impoverished pearl diver Kino finds the 'pearl of the world' he believes his family’s life will be transformed forever.

Seduced by the pearl's beauty and promise of riches, he is blind to the danger of having something that everyone else wants. Instead of bringing hope, the pearl leads Kino and his family down a dark and dangerous path.

WHY? 'An imaginative joy to behold' The Scotsman

This event is on sale to Friends and Bronze, Silver & Gold Members until Friday 18 July.

The King and I from the London Palladium

180 mins.

Recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium. The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Centre Theatre’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers.

WHY? ‘Five stars for a sumptuous King and I. Book Now. It’s a hit’ The Times

‘We left the London Palladium on a bright cloud of music - joyous!’ Daily Mail

‘Looks and sounds ravishing. Complete rapture’ The Telegraph
