Pet Shop Boys

On July 15th, Pet Shop Boys return in triumphant form with their new studio album ‘Electric’, the first to appear on their own label x2. Pet Shop Boys will embark on the ‘Electric’ tour beginning in May, arriving in Toronto on September 25. The tour is created in collaboration with Es Devlin (creative director/designer) and Lynne Page (stage director/choreographer), and has already received rave reviews when it debuted in Mexico in March.

In March this year, a teaser video for ‘Electric’ appeared online. The accompanying music, ‘Axis’, which is the album’s opening track, is now available in full online and is here accompanied by a video: smarturl.it/psbaxisvideo. A Boys Noize remix of the track will follow.

‘Electric’ features nine tracks in total – eight brand new Pet Shop Boys’ songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The last to die’. The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made.

Perlman Plays Tchaikovsky

No violin soloist would touch Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto when it was originally composed. Yet just a few years later, it had become the beloved classic that it remains today. English composer Sir William Walton’s 1935 symphony charts a compelling path from darkness to light in the style of Beethoven through the masterful use of a large, twentieth-century orchestra.

Come for: A fascinating “new” Britten piece. During World War II, Britten began composing a clarinet concerto for Benny Goodman, but he didn’t finish it. It was completed by Colin Matthews and received its première in 2008.

And more: Itzhak Perlman—say no more!

Faith Healer

Three versions of the same story – but which one is true? This mesmerizing tale centres on a small-time faith healer who travels the countryside, miraculously curing the sick (or does he?) in every small town along the way. We also meet his wife (or is it his mistress?) who tells us her own tale of faith and healing; and his manager Teddy, who has his own version of events. Brian Friel is one of Ireland’s master playwrights, and Faith Healer one of his many worldwide successes.
