Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story is a major Natural History Museum exhibition on early humankind. Twelve years of research have gone into the exhibition to bring to life prehistoric human existence in Britain.
As well as life-size models of the human species that inhabited Britain (see the short film about making the models), the museum is showing rarely displayed items such as the oldest wooden spear in the world, and the oldest Neanderthal skull found in Britain.
Angela Lansbury takes the starring role in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, reprising a role she played in the hit Broadway production of the play in 2009. It is her first West End role in nearly 40 years.
Lansbury plays the eccentric clairvoyant Madame Arcati, who is invited to perform a séance at a novelist’s house, as research for his latest novel. It is a move that backfires when she accidently summons up the ghost of the novelist’s first wife, causing him all kinds of problems.
Paolo Caliari, known as Veronese, was a stonecutter’s son from Verona who became one of the most sought-after artists in 16th century Venice, his paintings displayed in churches, palaces and public buildings.
The National Gallery’s exhibition, Veronese: Magnificence in Renaissance Venice, the first ever staged in this country on the Venetian master, aims to shine a light on his stunning works of art.
Based on the real-life 1960s sex scandal and divorce of the Duchess of Argyll, Powder Her Face is a modern chamber opera by Thomas Adés, with British soprano Amanda Roocroft in the lead role.
The new production, being performed in a large modern gallery space in Marylebone, is part of the English National Opera 2013/14 programme.
The score includes tango and cabaret influences and is known for its provocative sex scenes. The production by theatre director and opera newcomer Joe Hill-Gibbins is part of an ENO programme inviting guest directors that has included the late Anthony Minghella’s Madame Butterfly and Terry Gilliam’s production of the Berlioz opera Benvenuto Cellini (5-27 Jun).
A highlight of late spring in London is the Chelsea Flower Show, which celebrates 101 years this year. The world’s greatest flower show takes over the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea with show gardens, new plants, gardening trends and other horticultural wonders.
As this year’s show marks the 100th anniversary of World War I expect poppies aplenty in displays and gardens commemorating the events of a centenary ago (such as the No Man’s Land, Soldiers’ Charity Garden).
