Today's tale is of two musicians who could scarcely be more different, yet both would blaze a trail of their own. If classical was what followed medieval in the loosest of ways, then Arcangelo Corelli was there right at the start.

Breathing life into a classic monster

4 hours 35 min ago
With a whopping 13 nominations, The Shape of Water is looking the likeliest film to dominate at next month's Academy Awards. It may also be the narrow favourite for the prestigious Best Director and Best Film Oscars, especially now that Guillermo del Toro has won the Director's Guild of America's Best Feature award. Only once since 2002 has the DGA award not predicted the Best Director Oscar.

Classic play gets innovative makeover

4 hours 35 min ago
Director Annabelle Comyn takes an innovative approach to John Osborne's famous, angry text; the play here wears its dramatic architecture as an exoskeleton. Stage directions are sometimes delivered from a microphone at the side and often don't match the on-stage action; the backstage area is clearly visible; the actors sometimes whisper and drink water when "off". The production continually toys with ideas of authenticity and theatrical truth. What is deeply satisfying is that these innovations have been created out of the essence of conventional dramatic tools. A play that was a major breakthrough in British realist theatre in the mid 1950s has been reconstructed in an avant-garde way, while maintaining its essential strengths of story and character.

A history of fatal castrations and gory amputations

4 hours 35 min ago
In any debate over the social worth of "so-called experts", a defender of experience will at some point play their trump card: surgery. If you had a brain tumour, they'll say, wouldn't you want an "expert" brain surgeon to remove it? In the 21st century, the answer is, well, a no-brainer. We would choose the expert.

McGregor's artistry makes the mundane memorable

4 hours 35 min ago
Those who pick up a book hoping for a good wallow in tragedy and drama may regard Jon McGregor as the literary equivalent of the person in authority who shoos rubberneckers away from a juicy traffic accident with a "nothing to see here". His much-admired debut novel, If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things (2002), ended with a horrific catastrophe on an unremarkable urban street, but the 300 pages that prefaced it were spent detailing the residents' quotidian routines in the hours beforehand.
