It was somehow fitting that the track Something Better Change ringing through the Dome was what shifted the audience to a new level of energy and appreciation. It was just a shame it was during the encore.

Cinematic is a word often used to describe Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory’s music. A one-off event took this to its logical conclusion with promos from the new album and a captivating live performance broadcast simultaneously to screens across the globe.

Since Gilbert and Sullivan’s works shed the shackles of having to reproduce past D’Oyly Carte staging there have been many interesting interpretations plus a few dire ones. It could be argued that none have been as bold or work as brilliantly as this all-male version.

When I smile at you I’m not seeing you, I’m holding you hostage for who you remind me of. We are all screwed. We’re in the Dark Ages as far as our minds are concerned. We might look “normal”, but we give ourselves away worrying about how our bathrooms look.

If the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra set out to please the widest range of traditional music lovers, they could hardly have done better with this programme: baroque treasure, the ultimate in style galant, an echo of French classicism and a nod to the New World.

The Astor Big Band provided a pleasant afternoon of nostalgic wallowing in Glenn Miller’s music. The iconic sound, re-created by the original line-up of instruments, was driven by full-blooded brass and reeds.

“WE met some people who wanted to make music – some important ones came and went but that desire, hope and love was still there. We wanted to keep making music together, and we are not going to apologise for that.”

Brighton audiences are privileged to receive a visit from this prestigious modern dance company. They provide great dancing in four disparate offerings making up a sandwich with top-quality bread but less satisfying filling.

Grunge revival duo Drenge have had a year far less bleak than their dependably doom-laden lyrics, moving from pubs to packed houses, NME headline shows and a British Council-backed mini US tour with their curtly angst-ridden self-titled debut.

“I know what you’re thinking,” conceded Chris Ballew, the singer and founder of Presidents Of The United States Of America, introducing songs from the band’s new album, Kudos To You!, released little more than a week before this sold-out show. “Don’t do it. Well, we’re going to.”

Twelfth Night has inspired plenty of versions over the years. But one featuring takeaway pizzas, cartwheels, tequila slammers and conga lines – I’m guessing that’s pretty rare even for one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies.

The Brighton Dome’s programming has been particularly good this season, and last weekend’s performance by the London Philharmonic Orchestra exemplified this: from the opening chords of Berlioz’s Overture, Le Corsaire, the audience sat still, entranced.

“Forget about love”, read the tagline for perennial Hollywood troublemaker Lars von Trier’s hyped “sex-epic”. At four hours-plus, Nymphomaniac’s two volumes promised to be the Dane’s quintessential drawn-out misery-fest.

The announcement that a comedian is “trying out new material” usually dampens expectations. When said act is Zoe Lyons, however, it only heightens them. While the Hove-based performer’s subject matter was far from radical (gay marriage, UKIP and the Winter Olympics all featured heavily), her cutting observations, enthusiastic manner and exquisite delivery ensured this was a typically polished performance.

There was a plethora of spectacular beards at the special Brighton Science Festival Catalyst Club on Thursday. Clearly the scientifically minded in Sussex have embraced pogonology as well as the enjoyment of salon-style scientific discussion.

That the eight male dancers/drummers/ acrobats/gymnasts/comedians were excellent and committed was never in doubt. Sharp tapping, sensual athletic dance and tightly rhythmic drumming were there in abundance. The ensemble pieces were faultless, the solos passionate.
