Photographs by Prod.DB/Alamy, Getty, Allstar/Warner Bros, Sophia Evans/The Observer, design by Philip Lay Adele comes home, Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis goes for broke, the Edinburgh fringe fires on all cylinders, and HBO and Amazon have a fantasy face-off… our critics pick the best of the new season’s arts Pop The return of the big American stars… Whether postponed by Covid or just ready to see Europe again, US pop big-hitters are striding our way this summer. Billie Eilish , fresh off a deliriously received North American tour and Coachella performance, will be here in June (3-26). Lady Gaga ’s world tour finally arrives in London in July (29-30), bearing her Chromatica album (2020) and a brand new Top Gun-themed single, Hold My Hand. August promises Christina Aguilera (2-5 August) embracing her Latina roots, and next generation star Noah Cyrus (Miley’s younger sister, 10-14 August), who releases her own debut album on 15 July. … and not forgetting British pop royalty Release from the pent-up longing for live music continues apace with a triumvirate of homegrown stars on parade. Ed Sheeran ’s spring/summer UK tour enters its second half, with multiple nights in stadiums in June (until 1 July), including a five-gig run at Wembley. Harry Styles , who has been at No 1 in the UK charts for six weeks, has a long-awaited new third album, Harry’s House; he plays his own vast stages in June (11-19). Be sure to catch his support act too, the superlative Mitski . Liam Gallagher , whose new album has just landed, has two huge solo gigs at Knebworth Park (3-4 July), echoing Oasis’s tenure there 25 years ago. Kitty Empire Nish Kumar will perform at the Edinburgh festival. Photograph: Tristram Kenton/The Guardian Performance The fringe is back – and once more overstuffed with goodies. Kathy and Stella Solve a Murder is a comic murder mystery musical by Olivier-winner Jon Brittain and Matthew Floyd Jones (of Frisky & Mannish). Rafaella Marcus’s Sap promises a queer urban fable about bisexuality, while Emily Aboud’s Bogeyman offers a ghost story inspired by the Haitian revolution. Untapped award-winners Ugly Bucket deliver a “techno-clown-funeral” to explore loss in Good Grief , Nouveau Riché’s Caste-ing vibrantly charts the experience of Black actresses, and there’s top new writing from Sami Ibrahim, Dipo Baruwa-Etti and Chris Bush at Paines Plough’s pop-up venue, Roundabout . In comedy, there are bankable sets from Nish Kumar, Fern Brady, Ed Gamble, Nina Conti, Phil Wang, Tim Key and Stewart Lee, musical comedy from Flo and Joan, Michelle Brasier and Jonny & the Baptists, plus a chance to see viral stars Rosie Holt and Michael Spicer live. From 5-29 August; all dates, times and tickets at edfringe.com . Holly Williams Art Milton Avery at London’s Royal Academy Gentle, unassuming, with his outstanding gift for colour and his simplified grace, Milton Avery (1885-1965) is a singular master of American art. A later starter at 40, he was almost 70 before he began painting the large-scale landscapes that made him famous: hymns to Connecticut in spring, Vermont in autumn, to spiralling firs, bright pebbles and clustering sheep. This long-awaited survey (15 July-18 October), the first in Europe, will also include his humorous portraits of family and friends: everything he loved in a poetry of paint. Laura Cumming Dance When Matthew Bourne’s radical rethinking of Bizet’s Carmen premiered in 2000, the critic Jack Tinker described it as a “humping, pumping, thumping fat hit”. Twenty years and several revivals later, there’s no reason to think that this new in-the-round production with 65 dancers and musicians will be anything other. With the action switched to a garage in smalltown America in the 1950s, where a charismatic drifter causes havoc, the work is one of Bourne’s best: sexy, thrilling and emotionally gripping (9-19 June). Sarah Crompton The London Symphony Orchestra’s Trafalgar Square performance last August, conducted by Simon Rattle. Photograph: Mark Allan Classical Playing on a giant temporary stage in Trafalgar Square, the London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Simon Rattle will perform free to an audience of thousands on Saturday 11 June, with cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason as guest star making his LSO live debut, and a world premiere, Faiya!, by Ayanna Witter-Johnson . Other music includes George Gershwin’s An American in Paris, Max Bruch’s Kol Nidre and Ernest Bloch’s Prayer from Jewish Life. Bring a picnic and a cushion (but no glass bottles). Fiona Maddocks Film New female voices in cinema With female directors taking the top prizes at the most recent Venice and Berlin film festivals – as well as Cannes 2021 – and films by women winning the best picture Oscar for the last two years, perhaps it’s time to look to the next generation of female voices in cinema. And on the strength of the summer’s releases, they are bold, unconventional and anything but polite. Take Pleasure (17 June), the extraordinary, unflinching feature debut from Ninja Thyberg, which follows an ambitious Swedish adult movie actress as she works her way up through the US porn hierarchy. It’s eye-watering and eye-opening; a tough watch, but an utterly fearless piece of film-making. Greek director Jacqueline Lentzou’s engaging Moon, 66 Questions (24 June) is a gentler proposition but no less accomplished: it explores the estranged relationship between a daughter and her ailing father. Also recommended is Silent Land (22 July), the coolly Haneke-esque study of a perfect marriage in crisis from Polish director Aga Woszczynska. Wendy Ide Theatre From 16 June to 2 July, all three Sheffield theatres – the Crucible, the Lyceum and the Studio – will come together to put on three new plays by Chris (Standing at the Sky’s Edge) Bush. The same cast will perform the interlinked but standalone dramas – about a scissor manufacturer and a family feud – simultaneously on the different stages, running between buildings between scenes, leaving one stage to arrive on another. Robert Hastie, Anthony Lau and Elin Schofield co-direct this theatrical first, the centrepiece of Sheffield theatres’ 50th-anniversary celebrations. Susannah Clapp Paddy Considine in the HBO Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon. Photograph: Landmark Media/Alamy TV Fantasy face-off Winter is coming. Again! Game of Thrones fans should finally be able to get over “that” final season, thanks to the long-awaited arrival of HBO prequel House of the Dragon (22 August on Sky Atlantic /Now TV ). Based on George RR Martin’s Fire & Blood, it’s set 200 years before the original saga, traces the history of House Targaryen, and is estimated to have cost $20m per episode (presumably for all those peroxide platinum wigs). Breathing fire down its neck just 11 days later is Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series (2 September on Amazon Prime Video), subtitled The Rings of Power. Even pricier at $58m an episode, it brings JRR Tolkien’s “Second Age” of Middle-earth, millennia before the events of The Hobbit, to the screen for the first time. Comparisons between the two megabudget epics are inevitable. Will there be one TV show to rule them all? Michael Hogan Performance A summer of culture on London’s South Bank There are plenty of cultural offerings to draw you Thames-ward this season. Grace Jones curating Meltdown (10-19 June) at the Southbank Centre was always going to be fabulous, and she has lined up Skunk Anansie, Dry Cleaning, Baaba Maal and Peaches. There are also loads of free events, from classical to electronic to “rave-jazz”, at the New Music Biennial (1-3 July). The Hayward Gallery celebrates Black art and culture all summer, with its In the Black Fantastic exhibition of 11 contemporary artists (29 June-18 September). A weekender curated by Inua Ellams offers music, poetry, film and talks (15-17 July), while the Riverside Terrace stage hosts DJs, live music, and dancing (15 July-28 August). And the National Theatre’s open-air River Stage returns for five weekends (15 July-14 August), featuring the Hofesh Schecter Company, Manchester’s Home theatre and Johnny Woo and John Sizzle curating drag shows and DJs. Hot stuff! HW Jadden Khaki in the Iranian film Hit the Road. Photograph: TCD/Prod.DB/Alamy Film Hit the Road Not just one of the most accomplished feature debuts in recent memory, this superb Iranian road movie , which juggles comedy with an achingly sad subtext, is quite simply one of the finest films you’ll see this year. Its director, Panah Panahi, is the son of the acclaimed director Jafar Panahi, and was mentored by the late, great Abbas Kiarostami. But he is clearly a remarkable talent in his own right. The contained chaos of the story combines a covert commentary on life under a repressive regime with pre-revolution Iranian pop music, lip-syncing and a very funny running joke about a dog. In cinemas from 29 July. WI Theatre Updated classics on stage Richard Bean aims to repeat the smash-hit triumph of One Man, Two Guvnors with a new version of Sheridan’s The Rivals, set in 1940 and written with Oliver Chris. Jack Absolute Flies Again (2 July-3 Sept) is directed at the Olivier by Emily Burns and features among the cast Laurie Davidson and Caroline Quentin. At the Donmar, Noma Dumezweni is the heroine of A Doll’s House – Part Two (10 June-6 Aug), Lucas Hnath’s sequel to Ibsen’s play, which, directed by James Macdonald, sees Nora facing the family on whom she slammed the door. Emilia Clarke appears at the Harold Pinter in Anya Reiss’s 21st-century version of Chekhov’s The Seagull – pandemic-delayed from spring 2020 – starring with Tom Rhys Harries and Indira Varma, directed by Jamie Lloyd (29 June-10 Sept). At Edinburgh, Adura Onashile takes the title role in Liz Lochhead’s Scots version of Medea , directed by Michael Boyd at the Hub (10-28 August). The RSC update not a play but their casting policy by giving the lead role in Richard III to Arthur Hughes, who has radial dysplasia affecting his right arm. This is not the first time a disabled actor has taken the role; in 2017 Mat Fraser starred in a Northern Broadsides production. But it is a first for Stratford, where Hughes can be seen, directed by Gregory Doran, from 23 June to 8 October. SC Black Chapel, the 2022 Serpentine pavilion, designed by Theaster Gates. Photograph: © 2022 Theaster Gates Studio Architecture Theaster Gates’s Serpentine pavilion The Serpentine Gallery’s annual pavilion, which has been going since 2000, is usually designed by a leading architect. This year they have gone to an artist, the Chicago-based Theaster Gates, who has proposed a rounded, top-lit timber structure called Black Chapel , inspired by religious buildings and the historic pottery kilns in Stoke-on-Trent. It thus combines Gates’s longstanding interest in the craft of ceramics and working at the scale of buildings. Artists can be better than architects at temporary installations – more free and inventive with materials and ideas – so this year’s pavilion (open from 10 June to 16 October) could be a strong one. Rowan Moore Art Vivian Maier is widely regarded as one of the great street photographers of 20th-century art, up there with Robert Frank and Brassaï. Yet her work was only rediscovered as late as 2007. Reclusive, employed as a nanny for 40 years, her images are snatched from the sidewalks of American cities – immigrants, infants, lunching ladies, blue-collar workers, people and places subtly observed by a photographer in disguise. About 150,000 negatives have so far been found, and this show (11 June-25 September) will include a huge selection, including the exceptionally elusive self-portraits. Expect to be amazed. LC Film Baz Luhrmann has long been a polarising director, but one thing his critics and acolytes can agree on is that he doesn’t do things by halves. So expect the suitably excessive with his big, broad biopic of Elvis Presley, never himself the most subtle of stage presences. Played with dewy-eyed, pelvis-thrusting commitment by promising new star Austin Butler, Presley is a magnetic subject, given glittered, larger-than-larger-than-life treatment by Luhrmann’s high-kitsch film-making. And with Italian Eurovision rockers Måneskin on the soundtrack, the director’s taste for provocative anachronism is undimmed. In UK cinemas from 24 June. Guy Lodge Double Bafta-winner Big Zuu returns to the screen this summer. Photograph: Henry Nicholls/Reuters TV Big Zuu Rapper-cum-chef Zuhair Hassan stole the show at the recent TV Baftas with two surprise wins – and a pair of hilariously unfiltered acceptance speeches. The west London whirlwind is now going to blow all over our screens. He not only returns for a third series of his cult cookery show Big Zuu’s Big Eats (July on Dave), but stars in trainer store sitcom Sneakerhead (June on Dave) and is a judge on foodie contest Hungry for It (7 June on BBC Three). Big up Big Zuu’s big summer. MH Theatre Director Ivo van Hove adapts the celebrated novel by American author Hanya Yanagihara, published in 2015. Van Hove’s epic production follows four men, bound together by friendship, threatened by child abuse, self-harm, domestic violence and suicide, over more than 30 years. Ramsey Nasr stars as the central character, found as a baby in the rubbish and assaulted by a series of sadists; he won the Louis d’Or for his performance in Amsterdam. The production, in Dutch with English supertitles, can be seen 20-22 August at the Festival theatre, Edinburgh. Susannah Clapp No title [Struggle], by Lynch. Photograph: Bill Lynch/Courtesy of The Approach gallery Art Dreamy, haphazard, enchanting paintings of the American wilds by an artist who died in 2013, at the age of 53, without ever having an exhibition. Born in New Mexico, raised in New Jersey, Lynch’s work has the delicacy of nature – owls, hawks, tangled blossoms, wide skies – and the force of city life in its swirling, stuttering, sometimes angry marks. He loved Chinese watercolours, and it shows through in these paintings, made wet on wet, sometimes on board. Brighton has a coup here, presenting his first major UK show(6 August-15 October). LC Classical A trio of festivals The Walled City music festival (23-26 June) in Derry has a top guest lineup, including the Brodksy Quartet, Sandbox Percussion, Mill Ave Chamber Players, Ulster Orchestra and Acoustronic, followed by its international piano festival (27 June–1 July). Bold Tendencies returns to its south-east London car park home with its biggest programme yet, including cellist Abel Selaocoe, James McVinnie, Pavel Kolesnikov, Samson Tsoy, Jeneba Kanneh-Mason, Multi-Storey Orchestra and the Philharmonia, with music by Scriabin, Górecki, Stockhausen and Rachmaninov (4 June-10 September). Orkney’s St Magnus festival (17-24 June) is back, with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, pianist Clare Hammond, soprano Lotte Betts Dean and more. The Presteigne festival (25-30 August) in the Welsh Marches has 10 world premieres (by Julian Philips, Aileen Sweeney, Tarik O’Regan, Huw Watkins and more), plus oboist Nicholas Daniels and the Carducci Quartet. FM Pop Adele plays Hyde Park Adele accepting the artist of the year award at the Brits 2022 ceremony in February. Photograph: Tolga Akmen/AFP/Getty Images Forget the jubilee: the rarely spotted Adele Adkins, queen of heartache, is braving her well-documented stage fright and aversion to touring and performing two full solo gigs in the UK in July, as part of the British Summer Time series of events. These will be her first performances here since long-ago, faraway 2017, when her run of Wembley stadium shows was unexpectedly curtailed under doctor’s orders. A run of Vegas shows earlier this year never happened, but now, armed with 30 , the biggest record of 2021, and a home-town advantage, Adele is going to sing in public. Expect the Pimm’s-infused tears to flow (1 & 2 July). KE TV Heavyweight ensemble dramas Two of summer’s flagship homegrown dramas combine A-list writers with all-star casts. The Undeclared War (Channel 4) reunites Wolf Hall auteur Peter Kosminsky with leading man Mark Rylance for a cyber-thriller about GCHQ fending off an attack on our electoral system. Rylance is joined by Simon Pegg, Alex Jennings and, as the UK’s first black prime minister, Adrian Lester. From playwright James Graham comes Sherwood (BBC One), a crime drama about undercover “spy cops” inspired by real events in the Nottinghamshire mining village where Graham grew up. David Morrissey, Joanne Froggatt, Adeel Akhtar and Lesley Manville head the cast list. Prepare to immerse yourself in both gripping series. MH Pop Lizzo soundtracks the summer “It’s bad bitch o’clock!” declared Lizzo on her long-awaited recent single, About Damn Time , a title that could be the payoff line to so much of this summer’s fun. Infused with 70s production, Lizzo’s instant quotability and life-affirming verve, it bodes well for the rapper-singer-flute player’s fourth studio album, Special , expected on 15 July, whose title track has emerged as the music for an advert. “I hope that I can turn a little bit of the fear that’s been running rampant in this world, energetically into love,” she has said. KE Daniel Kaluuya in Jordan Peele’s Nope. Photograph: Landmark Media/Alamy Film A pair of psychological horrors You can count on auteurs such as Jordan Peele and Alex Garland to insert a significant chill into balmy summer days. For those who like a little shiver with their summer entertainment, both directors are back with creepily conceptual psychological horror films aimed to get under the skin. Peele, the Oscar-winning director of Get Out and Us, has kept his latest, the bluntly titled Nope, wrapped in a tantalising shroud of mystery for months now: a cryptically ominous teaser trailer gave away little but a collective of California oddballs looking up with horror at something in the sky. It promises nightmare imagery to die for, along with a tasty cast led by Daniel Kaluuya; in UK cinemas 22 July. Garland’s Men, out on Wednesday, is also mightily enigmatic: lorded over by Rory Kinnear’s performance of many faces, it’s an eerie, debate-inspiring allegory for toxic masculinity. GL Classical Opera large and small Top among friendliest of summer festivals is Dorset Opera . Local performers, rising stars and established professionals unite in a rural setting. This year: Mozart’s ever popular The Magic Flute , sung in English (26, 27, 29, 30 July), and Puccini’s high-passion Manon Lescaut (25, 27, 28, 30 July). Standards are high, the cream teas mouthwatering. In small-scale urban contrast, Grimeborn , at the Arcola, Dalston, east London, offers a chance to sample Wagner with Siegfried & Götterdämmerung (6-7 August) in Jonathan Dove’s cut-down orchestration. If you want full-strength Wagner, Opera North’s Parsifal is at Leeds Grand (1-10 June) then tours (12-26) to Manchester, Nottingham, Gateshead and London Southbank Centre. For all the family, try Leeds opera festival ’s new work, Power (19-29 Aug), made with five- to 12-year-olds from the New Wortley community centre. And Scottish Opera’s touring Pop-up Opera (3 June-10 July) has its own high-spirited rewrites of Rossini and Mozart for all ages. FM Dance
