  • Opera de Paris: A Midsummers Night's Dream (Live)

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Numerous choreographers have delved into Shakespeare to find dramatic material for their ballets, beginning with Jean-Georges Noverre, an ardent defender of the "action ballet" and Marius Petipa, who was the first to use Mendelssohn's stage music. George Balanchine, who also loved the score, would prove no exception. In 1962 he created his version of Shakespeare's comedy for New York City Ballet. Faithful to the Bard's vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment. One of George Balanchine's rare narrative ballets, A Midsummer Night's Dream is entering the Paris Opera Ballet's repertoire. The sets and costumes for this production have been designed by another magician of the stage, Christian Lacroix.

  • Royal Opera: Madama Butterfly (Live)

    Runtime: 165 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Puccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria 'Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

  • Gran Teatre del Liceu: Rigoletto (Live)

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Despite serious initial problems with the Austrian censors who had control over northern Italian theatres at the time, the opera Rigoletto had a triumphant premiere at La Fenice in Venice on 11 March 1851.
    It is considered by many to be the first of the operatic masterpieces of Verdi's middle-to-late career. Its tragic story revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto and Rigoletto's beautiful daughter Gilda. The opera's original title, La maledizione (The Curse), refers to the curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter had been seduced by the Duke with Rigoletto's encouragement. The curse comes to fruition when Gilda likewise falls in love with the Duke and eventually sacrifices her life to save him from the assassins hired by her father.

  • NT Live: Twelfth Night (Live)

    Runtime: 210 mins     Rating: LIVE 12A

    Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

    A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

    The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

    Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia and an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover).

  • Royal Ballet: Jewels (Live)

    Runtime: 150 mins     Rating: LIVE

    George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic.

    The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while the fire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York.

    Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in 'Diamonds'.

    Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.

    Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux's new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard's name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

  • Opera de Paris: Snegurochka (The Snow Maiden) (Live)

    Runtime: 260 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Snegúrochka was born in times of old in Tsar Berendey's mythical kingdom, the fruit of the union between Spring Beauty and Grandfather Frost. Protected by her parents from the jealousy of the Sun god Yarilo, (who vowed to warm her heart when she gets older and falls in love), Snegúrochka's fate is entrusted to a wood sprite.

    Ten years after its creation, Rimsky‑Korsakov wrote: "anyone who fails to love The Snow Maiden understands nothing of my works nor of myself". A masterpiece of popular Slavic literature, The Snow Maiden brings to the stage a magical fantasy of love and mythical renewal.

    Aida Garifullina sings the role of Snegúrochka whilst the production and musical direction have been left in the capable hands of two other Russian artists: the young conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov and director Dmitri Tcherniakov.

  • In Search of Chopin

    Runtime: 110 mins     Rating: TBC

    Acclaimed director Phil Grabsky brings to the cinema and TV screens around the world the life and music of Fryderyk Chopin – one of the greatest composers of all time.

    His grave in Paris remains a place of pilgrimage and his music continues to sell out concert halls worldwide – but who exactly was this man who was terrified of public performance, who fled his Polish homeland for Paris never to return, took up with the most notorious transvestite in France, rarely gave public performances and, despite a life of ill-health, wrote some of the deepest and most powerful music ever written? How exactly did a young Polish boy rise to such heady heights?

    For four years, Phil Grabsky has travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin.

    By talking to acclaimed musical historians such as Jeremy Siepmann and bringing to the screen performances by such esteemed musicians as Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Vogt, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and Kevin Kenner he hopes to answer those questions.

    Renowned stage and screen star Juliet Stevenson provides narration. David Dawson brings life to the letters of Chopin himself.

    Previous ‘In Search of...’ films have broken box office records in Australia, New Zealand and the USA and been huge critical successes.

  • Royal Ballet: The Dream / Symphonic Variations / Marguerite and Armand (Live)

    Runtime:      Rating: LIVE

    This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after World War II, and one of the Company's first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck's brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton's beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi's opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.

  • Glyndebourne Opera: La Traviata

    Runtime:      Rating: AS LIVE

    Verdi La traviata Violetta gives up every hope of happiness in this heart-wrenching love story. With its world-famous arias, La traviata is the perfect introduction to Glyndebourne. Alfredo, a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta, the stylish toast of Paris. But she’s not the marrying kind – at least not until now. However, their dreams are threatened by both a merciless society that condemns Violetta’s racy past and an equally merciless disease. There’s rarely a dry eye in the house when this poignant tale unfolds through Verdi’s robust, tuneful, full-hearted and full-throated score, laced through with melodies as familiar as the story. Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva portrays the iconic role of Violetta, alongside American tenor Michael Fabiano as Alfredo. The visual beauty of Tom Cairns’s opulent production aptly echoes the irresistible allure of this beloved opera. ‘With a team this thrilling and a production so intelligent, Glyndebourne has a sure-fire hit on its hands.’ 5 Stars – The Observer Captured live in 2014. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Also on screen this summer: Brett Dean’s brand new Shakespeare-inspired opera, Hamlet (live) and a new production of Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito (live).

  • Opera de Paris: La Cenerentola (Live)

    Runtime: 190 mins     Rating: LIVE

    "Before the carnival is over, all Rome will love my Cinderella…" Thus spoke Rossini in 1817, in the aftermath of the disastrous opening night, firmly convinced that his pumpkin would be transformed into a sumptuous carriage. The future was to prove him right. However, in moving from Perrault's tale to the opera, the humble servant who dreams of going to the ball has lost all her magical attributes: here there is no fairy godmother to transform mice into horses, rats into coachmen and lizards into footmen with a wave of her wand. And it is not a fur slipper but a bracelet that the beauty leaves behind for her prince, quite deliberately, challenging him to find her again. The Enlightenment had lit its fires throughout Europe and La Cenerentola focused on the burning issues of the day, confronting social divisions to reveal the crinoline beneath the rags. Guillaume Gallienne, member of the Comédie-Française, stages his first opera.

    Mozart La clemenza di Tito Spurned by Tito, Vitellia seeks revenge. Besotted Sesto agrees to avenge her as a token of his love, but all does not go to plan. A brand new take on one of Mozart’s final works. Vitellia’s path to the throne is thwarted by the man who deposed her father, so she presses her admirer Sesto to murder him. Driven by love, Sesto does his worst. But in return, receives a lesson in forgiveness. Conducted by Robin Ticciati and directed by Claus Guth, Mozart’s opera delivers all of the sublime musical beauty and heart-tugging humanity we expect of him. Loosely based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, La clemenza di Tito distills the suspense of Don Giovanni, the warmth of The Marriage of Figaro, and the nobility of The Magic Flute into one powerful parable of love and friendship, vengeance and mercy. Australian tenor Steve Davislim makes his Glyndebourne debut as Tito, with Alice Coote as Vitellia and Kate Lindsey as Sesto. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
