The Gypsy Kings have been purveying their distinctive brand of gypsy flamenco since the 1970s.

Massive Attack @ Brixton Academy
Thurs, 8 July and Fri, 9th July 2004, 7 p.m., UKP27.50 + fees
Massive Attack's hypnotically slower-but-danceable beats have been going for
20 years. Even if you're not familiar with their more widely known tracks
(Unfinished Sympathy, Teardrop, Inertia Creeps), you're more than likely
familiar with the acid jazz sounds that even with slow beats can have you
moving. (Patrick Garvin) Click here for tickets

Music: Classical and Dance

The Ring of Nibelung, The Coliseum
Pt I: The Valkyrie, ENO

Sat, 5th June 2004, 4.00 PM, UKP12-78 + fees
Plunged into a thunderous storm at the outset, the world of Wagner’s second Ring opera is one of tumult, conflict and desperation. As the focus shifts from gods to mortals, we discover Wotan’s plan for ending Alberich’s curse on the ring.
Featuring some of the Ring’s best known music – including the soaring ‘The Ride of the Valkyries’ – The Valkyrie will leave you exhilarated and euphoric.

Pt II: Siegfried, ENO
6, 10, 13, 17, 24, 27 Nov + 3 Dec 2004, 4.00 PM/5.00 PM/, UKP12-78 + fees

Who can wake the sleeping Brünnhilde? Only the hero who knows no fear. Enter Siegfried – grandson of Wotan and bearer of his hopes for regaining the ring. It's a journey of awakenings. Siegfried’s realisation of his lineage and his stumblings towards an understanding of his momentous destiny. The literal awakenings of both the sleeping dragon – jealously hoarding the ring and its riches – and of the now mortal Brünnhilde. And the awakening of passionate love as Siegfried pledges his fidelity to her with the fateful ring.
