“We Will Rock You” musical to close on 31 May 2014 / “We Will Rock You” мюзикл 2014-5-31нд хаагдана

WWRY
We Will Rock You UK musical staged at Dominion Theatre is to close on Saturday 31st May 2014 after a victorious 12 year reign.
Co-creators Brian May, Roger Taylor and Ben Elton had this to say: “We want to thank every one of the many hundreds of incredible musical theatre artists, musicians and crew with whom we’ve had the privilege of working at the Dominion since 2002. And of course the incredible audiences who have rewarded them with over four and a half thousand standing ovations!”

Batbileg’s painting “The Magnificent Years” on Queen, hosted at the theatre, will come down in May 2014 in accordance with this. We had great time sharing this beautiful and creative artwork with millions of Queen fans for over the last two and half years since October 2011 and would like to thank the management of Queen, Dominion Theatre, Fan Club and the fans for their support and love. We will keep you updated on the next venue soon.

“Goodbye Everybody, We’ve Got To Go…” See you soon!

Их Британи улсын Лондон хотын төвд орших “Доминион” театрын тайзнаа 12 жилийн туршид амжилттай тавигдсан “We Will Rock You” мюзикл 2014-5-31-нд хаагдана.
Хамтран бүтээгчид болох Бен Елтон болон алдарт “Квийн” хамтлагийн гишүүд Браин Мэй, Рожер Тэйлор нар хэлэхдээ: “Бид 2002 оноос хойш “Доминион” театрт хамтран ажиллах боломж олгосон олон зуун гайхалтай авьяаслаг хөгжимт театрын уран бүтээлчид, хөгжимчид болон техникчдэд нэг бүрчлэн талархал илэрхийлэхийг хүсч байна. Мөн тэднийг халуун дотноор хүлээн авч, 4500 удаа хүндэтгэл үзүүлсэн гайхамшигтай үзэгчдэдээ бас баярлалаа!” гэжээ.

Үүнтэй холбоотойгоор тус театрт дэлгэгдсэн зураач Д. Батбилэгийн “Гайхамшигийн он жилүүд” уран зургийг мөн 2014 оны 5 дугаар сард буулгана. Энэхүү гайхамшигтай уран бүтээлийг 2011 оны 10 дугаар сараас хойш сүүлийн хоёр жил хагасын туршид “Квийн” хамтлагийн сая сая фенүүдэд толилуулан хуваалцсан сайхан мөчүүдийг бид нандигнан дурсах болно. “Квийн” хамтлаг, “Доминион” театрын менежмент, Фен клуб болон фенүүдэд биднийг халуун дулаан сэтгэлээр дэмждэгт баярлалаа. Дараачийн удаа хаана дэлгэгдэх тухай бид мэдээлж байх болно.

“Бүгдээрээ баяртай, салах цаг ирлээ…”  Удахгүй уулзацгаая!

Batbileg’s manager presents videos on his artwork at the 28th International Queen Fan Convention in the UK

Batbileg’s Manager Unurmaa Janchiv gave presentation on Batbileg’s artwork “The Magnificent Years”, which is now being hosted by the Dominion Theatre in London since October 2011, at the 28th International Queen Fan Convention in Great Yarmouth, UK, which took place between 19-22 April 2013.

Among the guest speakers, there were Jacky Smith of the Queen International Fan Club, Former PA to Freddie Mercury Peter Freestone and all those wonderful people who are connected to Queen and their music, including Rhys Thomas, Jamie Moses, Doug Puddifoot and performers including the amazing Natalia Poznova and the tribute bands “The Bohemians” and “Kinds of Magic”, who were superb! We must mention Queen Mime, Q-Factor, the fancy dress and tattoo competitions, which were hilarious, but fun fun fun!!! …

The Queen fans were again so warm and we had fantastic time there near the beach town of Great Yarmouth. Of course there were many those who fell in love with Batbileg’s artwork dedicated to life and music of Queen at his first display during the 25th International Queen Fan Convention in the same venue in 2010. The artist and Miss Unurmaa had then both met many of the delegates including Jacky Smith of the Queen International Fan Club, Former PA to Freddie Mercury Peter Freestone, Freddie’s sister Kashmir Cooke and her husband Roger Cooke and many more.

We managed to raise some funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust and gave our small donation to the wonderful Maureen Barclay of the Mercury Phoenix Trust. Thanks to everyone who bought prints of Batbileg’s amazing painting and we hope to hear from you more often!

Thanks again to the amazing Jacky, who invited Unurmaa to speak at the Convention and everyone who has been helpful throughout the event! See you in 2014 at the next Convention!

As you know, many fans have been asking about prints and finally you are now able to purchase signed and unsigned cards, photo prints an prints on canvas of the “Magnificent Years”. 5% of each sale goes to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.

Lots of love from
Batbileg & Unurmaa

Info:

Batbileg Darjaa is an Honorary Artist of Mongolia and a graduate of the Art College in Ulaanbaatar. He taught at the Art College before launching on his biggest project: Queen. A huge music fan himself, Batbileg Darjaa worked on “The Magnificent Years” (oil on canvas, dimension: 80x150cm each/320x150cm for four paintings), the series of four paintings, dedicated to “Queen” at the peak of their career, after working on the paintings for four and a half years. The painting is hosted by the Dominion Theatre in London at present. There are eight hand-woven tapestries and two sculptures named after their songs also. “The Magnificent Years” was hosted at the 25th International Queen Fan Convention in the UK in 2010, the Freddie Mercury Memorial Day celebration in Montreaux, Switzerland and the Dominion Theatre, celebrating Freddie Mercury’s birthday in support of fundraising for the Mercury Phoenix Trust in September 2011. As mentioned above, the paintings are now being hosted at the Dominion Theatre permanently for over one year.

Some fans may have already seen it, some may have not. Here is a short video for you to see how it is displayed at the Dominion Theatre.

In the next video, Batbileg talks about his experience of working on “The Magnificent Years”, which was inspired by the music of “Queen”. His tells his story of being a music fan in the early 90s in a socialist country before the democratic process took place in Mongolia and how hard he worked on his paintings to achieve his most ambitious plan to complete the full set of four paintings, now hosted by the Dominion Theatre in London, where We Will Rock You musical is staged six days a week for over 10 years. He goes on to say that his oriental background, combined with his professional training in western Modernist style of painting, helped him to tell a story about 40-years of the legendary rock band “Queen”.

Artist Exhibits His Queen-Themed Artworks at the 25th Queen Fan Convention

dimension: 80x150cm each and 320x150cm for four paintings‘Magnificent Years’ by Batbileg Darjaa, Oil on Canvas, Dimension: 80 x 150cm each and 320x150cm for four paintings

Fans of the rock band Queen gathered at the 25th Queen Fan Convention in Great Yarmouth, UK, which took place between 26-29 March 2010, were pleasantly surprised.

Batbileg Darjaa, a loyal Queen fan since he was a young student in his native country Mongolia, where listening to pop and rock music was banned during the communist regime like in Russia, at the time when he found out about Queen music, has recently finished series of oil on canvas paintings and sculptures dedicated to Queen. After talking to Jacky Smith of the Queen Fan Club for sometime via his London-based manager, he was invited to display his artworks at the Fan Convention.

Batbileg worked on the series of four paintings (dimension: 80cm x 150cm each and 320cm x 150cm for four paintings), each dedicated to each member of the band Queen, for four and a half years. There are eight tapestries and three sculptures dedicated to particular Queen songs.

There are 31 ideas in the Queen series and the following details were represented in the painting:

  • 30 logos and tickets
  • 33 newspaper and book materials
  • 30 records
  • 70 names of their well-known songs composed by the band members, which became hits

Total of 130 images of four band members repeated in the four series. The breakdown is as follows:

Freddie Mercury x 47

Brian May x 31

Roger Taylor x 25

John Deacon x 27

Batbileg says, ‘Although I have not had an opportunity to meet any of the band members, I used colours and movements for each one of them to match the person’s character, personality and emotions. I imagined these based on the songs that they composed, on the way of carrying themselves, their behaviour both in normal life and on stage during performances, and I did so after carefully researching and studying these. I have to say that it was all my imagination and creativity’.

The Queen fans received the exhibition, particularly the paintings of four members, very well and some spent hours standing in front of the paintings each day so they can go through all the details that artist included in these magnificent series. The artworks were praised by guests, including Freddie’s sister Kash Cooke, who wrote: ‘Brilliant pictures – never seen anything like them before’. Peter Freestone, Freddie’s former PA said ‘wonderful colours, beautiful designs”. Jacky Smith of the Fan Club simply said ‘Stunning!’.
