DANCE: Rhapsody, Royal Opera House, 7-15 Feb
One of master choregrapher Frederick Ashton’s last works, 1980’s ‘Rhapsody’ finds a male and a female lead moving in time with the at times stormy, at times calm cadences of Rachmaninoff’s ‘Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini’. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Bill Callahan, Royal Festival Hall, 7-8 Feb (pictured)
States-based baritone Bill Callahan, who’s hailed as one of his nation’s greatest lyricists, retraces his slight, sensual and sensitive new LP, ‘Dream River’, released by the Drag City label last year. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Fuck Buttons, The Forum, 7 Feb
Becoming something of household name post-the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, post-house populists Fuck Buttons are still pulling public scrutiny with their third LP, ‘Slow Focus’. Tonight’s show at The Forum, whose bill includes support DJs The Bug, The Field and The Haxon Cloak runs till 1am. Details and tickets here.
