Modern opera
 

I have mixed feelings about opera. I love the ‘hit’ songs but 4 hours spent on rather austere seating can test anyone’s love of singing peasants. That’s why a new opera at Theater Rigiblick by London’s The Opera Group, Babur in London, could lure me back. Set in contemporary London, it follows four men and women as they prepare to carry out a terrorist attack. As their mission draws closer the ghost of Babur, the first Mughal emperor and poet, visits and confronts them. The piece uses the contemporary Indian poetry of Jeet Thayil and original music by Edward Rushton. This is opera as documentary and all the more powerful for it.
Thursday/Friday 8 pm, Theater Rigiblick

Pile of music
 

Pile of Books is a great independent English bookshop. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm, and the owner, Daniel, is always ready to offer a suggestion if you get blinded by browsing-mania. This Friday, Nashville singer/songwriter John Francis will be playing at the store. He mixes Americana, country and folk into a heady brew and with the intimate surroundings of books and wooden shelves should turn this into an intense evening of music.
Friday 8 pm, Pile of Books, Zentralstrasse 16, 8003

Soundscapes
 

As Abart slowly begins to wind down, they are putting on a few late Friday night specials, where the headlining act gets to rock out around midnight. This Friday, is a night of post-rock shenanigans with Swiss band Leech headlining and bringing with them their epic maelstrom of instrumental sound that is sure to vibrate your most secret places. Kid Ikarus, also from Switzerland and German band, Long Distance Calling, offer support with their own beautiful musical chaos.
Friday 9pm, Abart

Do what ya like
 

When Amboss Rampe put on a night called Do What Ya Like, they ain’t kidding. For starters you can warm up with a little game of funky ping-pong, and then just to show you can make spectacular moves without a bat in your hand, you can head to the party where djs Nicola Kazimir, Joe Bless and, of course, resident djs lobi rodio and kelstroem will play anything from boogie and disco to house and hiphop. 
Friday 9 pm, Amboss Rampe

Ice float
 

Iceland seems to be a place that inspires music that is ethereal but still able to grab you by the ear and insist on being listened to. Sigur Rós and Björk are maybe the most well known examples but Ólafur Arnalds should be next on your ‘Icelandic artists I should know’ list. He plays live at Moods this Saturday with songs that are mostly built around almost classical piano motifs, that then expand and swell as electronica and subtle drum patterns engulf you in their warm embrace. This is music to sooth the savage breast and make a Saturday night feel like a Sunday morning.
Saturday 9:30 pm, Moods

It’s a classic
 
I like cinema Uto with its nostalgic flair and plush velvet seats. This Sunday ioic screens Metropolis there. The German expressionist, silent science fiction film classic. It’s a silent movie but this Sunday, Insub Meta Orchestra, a large improvisation ensemble from all over Switzerland, will fill the air with live harmonies.
Sunday 7 pm, Uto Kino

Friday I’m in love
 
19 years ago, the brothers Freitag started sewing their bags out of old truck tarpaulin at home, dreaming the dreams of success as all start-ups do. Who would have thought that their bags are visible on all streets all over Europe? A good enough reason for the Museum für Gestaltung to honour Freitag with an exhibition, which looks back on the past two decades of the company until 29 July.

Map attack
 
Everyone knows the yellow dot, which eats blue dots while getting chased by ghosts through a maze. This if the principle of the cult game Pac-Man which inspired the inventors of Map Attack. Just that their version takes place in real life. The smartphone becomes your game console and the city your playground. Within a defined area, two teams play against each other trying to gather as many points as possible. Good luck!

Absolutely Zurich
 
From its sub-cultural start in the 70s and 80s to the boom of electronic music in the 90s, to dialect rap and the comeback of a varied band and producer scene in the millennium years. Definitiv Zurich invites you to discover four decades of Zurich sub- and pop-culture. Quite a few names and songs even I wasn’t familiar with.

Read more Hats by The Blue Nile:

We know that Ron Orp is the purveyor of all things contemporary. Gazing into the Orp orb, he foresees the sightings ahead we should be aware of. But sometimes, just sometimes, I think it’s good to glance to the past, if for no other reason than to be assured that everything that happened today actually existed, once tomorrow comes.
The enigmatic Scottish band The Blue Nile are glacial when it comes to album releases. They have produced only 4 albums in the last 26 years, but it is their sophomore effort, Hats, released in 1989 that I love and want to recommend to you.
Firstly, I should say that this is music of the night. For those tired moments you want to be wrapped in a warm embrace, when your heart is full but your bed empty...

Christmas time is here again and just as Santa readies his reindeers, dons his red suit and packs his sack full of toys, I too will be avoiding real work over the next two weeks. The next newsletter you'll receive from me will be in 2015 but I've included some New Year’s parties in this one for those that will miss me.
Give my love to the city and a happy New Year to everyone, Ron

Christmas always brings out the romantic Ronster in me. After all, isn’t love the greatest gift of all? (or it would be, if it weren’t for this excellent blue Snuggie. Hint, hint Santa). Anyway, if you wander down to Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke, this evening you can take part in the Zürich Christmas tradition of Lichterschwimmen, where hundreds of people will be releasing little boats filled with candles into the Limmat. Hot punch and sweet treats will also be on hand as you gaze dreamily into the flickering river.
Thursday  5 pm – 7 pm, Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke

Add to favourit  Stage: Vaudeville vandals
 
The Tiger Lilies have the air of a vaudeville act that could have been performing in an old pub, on a dark and foggy London street, just as Jack the Ripper was having his dastardly way in the shadows. They mix music hall and vaudeville with a punk attitude and ghoulish humour that will make you laugh, while at the same time wondering if you should be laughing at all. Their new show, The Very Worst of The Tiger Lilies, is at Theater Rigiblick on Friday.
Friday 8 pm, Theater Rigiblick
 
Add to favourit  Cinema: Angel’s wings
 
If, despite the tinsel, the glittering lights and queuing up to buy presents, you still haven’t been fully embraced by the Christmas spirit, might Dr Ron recommend a shot of his finest, Grade A, pure-cut never-fails remedy. On Saturday and Sunday, Film Podium will be showing Frank Capra’s Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life. If you’ve never seen the film before then prepare to leave the cinema with your heart all aglow and a glisten in your eye. If you have seen it, then go renew your faith in your fellow man and repeat after me, “Attaboy, Clarence!”
Saturday 8.45 pm, Sunday 2.30 pm, Film Podium
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Winter legends
 
When the legends of El Dorado were first whispered, about that mysteries and lost city of gold in the Andes mountains, could they ever have thought that a bar in Zurich, coincidentally named Eldorado, would also contain a plethora of shiny riches and treasures, but would be infinitely more locatable. Probably not. Either way, the nearly unlimited number of beers (101, actually) they offer would be temptation enough for the meekest of explorers but this Sunday they are also hosting the Winter Unplugged Music Festival, where a nearly unlimited number of performers (5, actually) will be showcasing their acoustic skills from the haunting sounds of Me.Man.Machine to the poetic heartbreak of Faber.
Sunday 7 pm, Eldorado

Christmas always brings out the big softy in me, although that may also be the Glühwein working it's wily magic, so I was happy to see that Xenix are showing an open-air (yes, outside) double-bill on Christmas Eve (Wednesday). The first is the Buster Keaton classic silent comedy, The General, where our hero tries to get back the two loves of his life: his bride and his locomotive (not necessarily in that order). Blankets will be available but bring your own to guarantee one. The second movie is screened indoors: In «Barbarella» Jane Fond's sex-bomb tries to save the world, to do this she has to face some unique adventures first. First film starts at 6.30 pm, second at 9 pm.
Merry Christmas!

For this he collects money on the crowdfunding-platform 100-days.net. He has seven days left to raise the rest of the money, so give him – and the kids in Ho Chi Minh City – a boost.
