  • NT Live: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Captured Live)

    Runtime: 185 mins     Rating:

    Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out? ★★★★ "A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted" Sunday Times ★★★★ "A brilliant, lacerating account of the play… unforgettable" The Independent

  • Gran Teatre del Liceu: Roméo et Juliette (Live)

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré, based on The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Opera in a prologue and five acts Sung in French Charles Gounod's adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy returns to the stage of the Gran Teatre del Liceu after an absence of over three decades. Co-produced with the Santa Fe Opera, this production is conducted by Josep Pons and directed by Stephen Lawless. The action is moved to the context of the American Civil War (1861-1865), providing clear context for the insurmountable divisions between the Capulets and the Montagues. The lovers live in a classic mortuary, foreshadowing their fatal destiny from the very start of their infatuation. Hailed by Plácido Domingo as "one of the most exciting opera divas of today and tomorrow", Aida Garifullina stars as Juliet alongside Saimir Pirgu, who has been described by Opera Today as "one of the world's most important interpreters of lyric tenor roles".

  • Stage Russia: The Three Sisters

    Runtime: 240 mins     Rating:

    Anton Chekhov's The Three Sisters probes the lives and dreams of Olga, Masha, and Irina, former Muscovites now living in a provincial town from which they're desperate to escape. In this powerful play, a landmark of modern drama, Chekhov masterfully interweaves character and theme in subtle ways that make the work's climax seem as inevitable as it is deeply moving. Timofey Kulyabin is one of the most prominent directors on the Russian theater scene today. His operas and plays have been performed on the stages of the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow's venerable Theatre of Nations and, overseas in Vienna and Paris. In The Three Sisters Kulyabin has taken this classic drama and reinvented it as an epic parable about finding harmony through suffering. The entire cast, save for one, communicate throughout the performance solely in sign language. By doing so, the selfishness, isolation and lack of mutual understanding are dangerous and laden with disaster, the characters defenseless against a huge "sounding" world. A revelation of experimental theater that miraculously remains entirely Chekhovian.

  • Royal Opera: Carmen (Live)

    Runtime: 200 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Carmen is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in the entire art form – numbers such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song have permeated the popular consciousness as little else has. The opera’s heady combination of passion, sensuality and violence initially proved too much for the stage, and it was a critical failure on its 1875 premiere. Bizet died shortly after, and never learned of the spectacular success his Carmen would achieve: the opera has been performed more than five hundred times at Covent Garden alone.This ever-popular opera is given a fresh point of view in Barrie Kosky’s highly physical production, originally created for Frankfurt Opera. The Australian director is one of the world’s most sought-after opera directors, whose Royal Opera debut with Shostakovich’s The Nose in 2016 was greeted with delight. For Carmen he has devised a far-from-traditional version, incorporating music written by Bizet for the score but not usually heard, and giving a new voice to the opera’s endlessly fascinating central character.

  • Royal Ballet: New Wayne McGregor/The Age of Anxiety/New Christopher Wheeldon (Live)

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim. He was eclectic in his sources – drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical – and many of Bernstein’s scores are remarkably well suited to dance. He was particularly associated with Jerome Robbins, their credits together including Fancy Free andWest Side Story. To celebrate the centenary year of the composer’s birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernstein’s music.The programme includes two world premieres by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, marking each artist’s first foray into Bernstein. At the heart of the programme is the first revival of Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett’s The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernstein’s soul-searching Second Symphony. Both symphony and ballet are inspired by W.H. Auden’s masterful modernist poem, itself written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.

  • Royal Opera: Macbeth (Live)

    Runtime: 200 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Verdi's life-long love affair with Shakespeare's works began with Macbeth, a play he considered to be 'one of the greatest creations of man'. With his librettist, Francesco Maria Piave, Verdi set out to create 'something out of the ordinary'. Their success is borne out in every bar of a score that sees Verdi at his most theatrical: it bristles with demonic energy.The warrior Macbeth fights on the side of the King of Scotland – but when a coven of witches prophesy that he shall become king himself, a ruthless ambition drives Macbeth and his wife to horrific acts. Murder makes Macbeth king, and intrigue and butchery are the hallmarks of his brief, doomed reign. The witches make another prediction, which also comes true: Macbeth and his lady lose their lives, and justice is restored. Phyllida Lloyd's 2002 production for The Royal Opera is richly hued, shot through with black, red and gold. The witches – imagined by designer Anthony Ward as strange, scarlet-turbaned creatures – are ever-present agents of fate. Lloyd depicts the Macbeths' childlessness as the dark sadness lurking behind their terrible deeds. The Royal Opera's production uses Verdi's 1865 Paris revision of the opera, which includes Lady Macbeth's riveting aria 'La luce langue.'

    Runtime: 95 mins     Rating:

    A Journey into the heart of the Renaissance ‘Florence and the Uffizi Gallery 3D/4K: a journey into the heart of the Renaissance’ is much more than a classic Art documentary: it’s a multi-dimensional, multi-sensory journey into the Italian Renaissance through the most beautiful, representative works of art of the period. For the first time in cinema theaters worldwide comes an art film on the veritable open-air museum that is the city of Florence in which 3D technology ensures a totally immersive, unprecedented viewing experience: works of art speak for themselves with all the power of their extraordinary beauty enhanced by 3D vision. A stimulating “emotional” commentary is given by a major, leading Renaissance figure, our guide Lorenzo the Magnificent, played by Simon Merrells. From a timeless limbo, he takes us through a tour of “his” Florence, the cradle of Renaissance culture, all to the splendid accompaniment of carefully selected music. Also featured are valuable artistic contributions made by experts such as Antonio Natali, the Director of the Uffizi Gallery for almost 10 years; Marco Ciatti, Superintendent of the ‘Opificio delle Pietre Dure’ and Arturo Galansino, Director of Palazzo Strozzi.

  • Royal Ballet: Manon (Live)

    Runtime: 205 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Manon's brother Lescaut is offering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love. They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. offers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she can't resist. With the Lescauts' encouragement Des Grieux cheats at cards in an attempt to win Monsieur G.M.'s fortune. They are caught. Manon is arrested as a prostitute and deported to New Orleans, followed by Des Grieux. On the run, Manon dies from exhaustion.
    Kenneth MacMillan's source for Manonwas the 18th-century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. The premiere was given on 7 March 1974, with the lead roles danced by Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet's repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.
    MacMillan found new sympathy with the capricious Manon and her struggle to escape poverty. Designs by his regular collaborator Nicholas Georgiadis reflect this, depicting a world of lavish splendour polluted by miserable destitution. MacMillan's spectacular ensemble scenes for the whole Company create vivid, complex portraits of the distinct societies of Paris and New Orleans. But it is Manon and Des Grieux's impassioned pas de deux – recalling the intensity of MacMillan's earlier Romeo and Juliet – that drive this tragic story, and make Manon one of MacMillan's most powerful dramas.

It is the story of the only theatre in the world which has captured and tied indissolubly to it the all time greatest names in the history of music. Giuseppe Verdi, Arturo Toscanini, Maria Callas and Luchino Visconti turned this place into a legend and it still evokes a sense of the sacred to this day, handed down through the years by Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado, Giorgio Strehler, Riccardo Muti, Franco Zeffirelli, Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Chailly, Patrice Chéreau. Narrated by an off-screen voice. (in the Italian version it belongs to the actor Sandro Lombardi), the film takes us by the hand and leads us through centuries of history, focusing primarily on the Scala but at the same time recounting the main historical, musical, social and political events happening in Italy and the rest of Europe. It is as though there were three types of narrative, starting from the birth of the Theatre, and progressing in a perfectly synchronized manner as the story unfolds. The story is enriched by statements and commentary from musicians, experts and aficionados, and also features photographs, drawings, musical scores, paintings, images, videos from archive material and everything that serves to make it fluid, rich, clear and exhaustive account.

  • Opéra de Paris: Boris Godounov (Live)

    Runtime: 130 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Sung in Russian Libretto by Modeste Moussorgski "Living power is unbearable for the people. They can love only the dead." - Boris, Boris Godounov, Alexandre Pushkin In 1824, when Pushkin turned to Boris Godounov for his first historical drama, he knew well the colossus he was tackling. Armed with his reading of Shakespeare, Pushkin retold the epic history of the dazzling reign of the Tzar of Russia (1598-1605). Indeed, elements of Macbeth appear throughout this political fable, in which an imposter with ambitions for the throne haunts Boris, pretending to return as the child that Boris had once killed in order to seize power. Adapting this epic poem, Mussorgsky composed a meditation on the solitude of power, a populist drama in which the real protagonist is the Russian people with its burden of eternal suffering. Ivo Van Hove is no stranger to grand political frescos, having previously staged Tragédies Romaines and Kings of War, both based on plays by Shakespeare. This is his first production for the Paris Opera. The production stars Ildar Abdrazakov, "one of the most sought-after young basses in the operatic world" (Vanity Fair) and "one of the most exciting Russian singers to emerge on the international scene in the past decade" (Opera News).

    Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.
    Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.
    Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky's first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky's score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa's royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov

  • Opéra de Paris: Don Pasquale (Live)

    Runtime: 155 mins     Rating: LIVE

    "I may well be mature of age, but I'm still well preserved, and as far as strength and sprightliness go, I've enough, and some to spare." - Don Pasquale, Don Pasquale, Act I, Scene III "Foolish indeed is he who marries in old age." Thus ends Don Pasquale: with a wise dictum not lacking in irony that sums up the disappointments of its hero, a rich bachelor keen to marry, who is deceived by his nephew Ernesto and his young bride-to-be Norina. First performed in Paris in 1843, at the turning point of several eras, Don Pasquale, a composite and varied work, is the apotheosis of opera buffa. Performed for the first time at the Paris Opera, the production has been entrusted to Italian director, Damiano Michieletto, who transports us directly to the sincerity and dramatic splendor at the heart of a seemingly light-hearted work. Bass Michele Pertusi sings the title role, joined by tenor Lawrence Brownlee, whose "instrument of great beauty and expression" is "perfectly suited" to the great operas of Donizetti (NPR Music). Nadine Sierra, winner of the 2017 Richard Tucker Award, sings as the flirtatious and mischievous Norina.
