    Donizetti's sublime  L’Elisir d’Amore is opening the New York Met’s second season of The Met: Live in HD cinema screenings this Saturday evening around the world.

    The Met’s cinematic season of 12 operas should appeal to Verdi enthusiasts.

    Four of his operas are being screened: Otello, Un Ballo in Maschera, Aida and Rigoletto.

    By contrast, there’s only one Mozart, La Clemeza di Tito; one Wagner Parsifal; and one Handel Giulio.

    Award-winning performer Clive Rowe (pictured) is opening a new jazz/cabaret season at The Crazy Coqs, Brasserie Zedel, in Piccadilly next Monday evening through to the following Saturday.

    His one-man show Rose’s Front Stall Bar tells the story of his career from his first front-of-house job at the Adelphi Theatre to his rise to fame and leading theatrical roles.

    The story is told through familiar classic songs by Gershwin, Cole Porter, Steven Sondheim, Jason Robert Brown and others.

    Also booked to appear at the jazz/cabaret venue are such singers/ musicians as Karen Akers, Issy Van Randwyck, Rossie Ash, Steve Torme, KT Sullivan and Steve Ross.

    Affordable concerts get under way at the Conway Hall, Holborn, again this Sunday evening.

    First up is the prestigious US-based Tempest Trio playing pieces by Beethoven, Bloch and Brahms. Top-priced tickets are £8; students half that at only £4; and under-16s get in for free.

    Great chamber music at amazing prices.
