Dominic Teague is the award-winning Executive Chef of Indigo restaurant and the hotel. Here, he talks foraging, flavours and fine ingredients.Meet Silvia Melchior of the Donmar Warehouse.
‘The dynamic partnership between the Donmar Warehouse and One Aldwych began when we were staging Nick Payne’s wonderful play Constellations.’ explains Silvia Melchior, director of development at the Donmar, as well as a proud One Aldwych Curator. ‘Working in collaboration with the hotel, guests were able to enjoy a Champagne reception and after the show, a Q&A with the cast. It was a very special opportunity.’
‘It’s an exciting time for the theatre with the amazing Michael Longhurst having joined as artistic director,’ she continues.
‘Not only has he been responsible for smash hits such as the 2016 production of Amadeus at The National Theatre and Broadway-transferring Caroline, or Change, which was nominated for three Tony Awards, he has an exciting vision
for opening up access to our theatre.’ she adds.
Melchior, who hails from Italy, says she always wanted to work in London after visiting on holiday as a youngster. Drawn to people, their stories and their interactions, she considered studying psychology but decided on an arts management
degree at university. As she points out, just like psychology, the arts explore and respond to the human condition.
Upcoming must-see performances include the heart breaking, hilarious and, ultimately, incredibly hopeful, NEXT TO NORMAL which centres on the story of Diana, a mother struggling with worsening bipolar disorder and the effects that managing her illness has on her family.
