Everett's career-defining performance as Oscar Wilde in ‘The Judas Kiss' is certainly a highlight of theatre in London this month but there are other high profile events to tempt visitors to the capital including the latest Cirque du Soleil show, ‘Kooza', at the Royal Albert Hall, ‘The Sleeping Beauty' at the London Coliseum, and the London Boat Show at the ExCel Centre.
The Royal Academy of Arts begins its year with a blockbuster art exhibition on the famous French painter Edouard Manet, showing more than 50 of his paintings while Tate Britain concentrates on the late works of Kurt Schwitters and the Hayward Gallery reveals its ‘Light Show' exhibition at the end of the month. There's contemporary art by the German-born photographer Juergen Teller at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, and art to buy at the London Art Fair which returns for its 25th year, gathering over a hundred of London's best galleries under one roof.
The Southbank Centre's year-long classical music festival, The Rest is Noise, begins in January 2013, an exploration of 20th century music which will involve a record number of the UK's orchestras. Music fans are spoilt for choice this month with live performances from Mercury Prize winners Alt-J, Sinead O'Connor, Donny and Marie Osmond who perform at London 's O2 Arena, and a rare London appearance from Jane Birkin, singing songs by her late partner Serge Gainsbourg at Cadogan Hall.
There's not one but two film festivals with the London Short Film Festival which celebrates 10 years in January, followed later in the month by the four-day LOCO London Comedy Film Festival. Both festivals include screenings, workshops, and talks in celebration of British-based film-making.
