Sylvie Guillem, Iris reviewed, Fiftieth anniversary of Help!, Aurora Orchestra

The acclaimed ballet and contemporary dancer Sylvie Guillem reflects on her final programme of work Life in Progress, a Sadler's Wells production at London's Coliseum. The performances include new and existing work by choreographers who have influenced her contemporary career. The late Albert Maysels's last documentary is Iris, a portrayal of 93 year old New York fashion icon Iris Apfel. Her story is full of colour, from her design projects at the White House to her own line of bold accessories and the retrospective show at the Metropolitan Museum which brought her fame in 2005. Rachel Cooke reviews. Nicholas Collon is the Principal Conductor of the Aurora Orchestra. A British chamber orchestra formed in 2005, they've gained a reputation for taking an unexpected approach to classical music. True to their ethos, at last year's Proms they performed Mozart's 40th Symphony from memory - this year they take on Beethoven's 6th, the Pastoral Symphony - an even greater challenge. So what are the gains in playing from memory - and what could possibly go wrong?! As the Beatles' film Help! turns 50 this week, Kate Mossman considers why films where pop stars play versions of themselves have disappeared from screens, replaced by warts and all behind the scenes documentaries.
