Film Star Turns (Film) Composer

In a bizzare twist of vocation the veteran film star Sir Anthony Hopkins (of 'Silence of the Lambs' fame) has tried his hand at composing. On the 19th May San Antonio's central library saw the first performances of Sir Anthony's three piece work for orchestra described, by the composer, as "impressions of my childhood in Margham, South Wales". The three movemements, entitled 'Stella Aria', 'Summer' and 'Margham', were performed to an intimate 150 strong audience to the backdrop of a fibre-optic screen projecting images of stars.

The evening also included a display of Hopkins' labours as a painter.
