  • Raphael: The Lord of the Arts

    Runtime: 90 mins     Rating:

    Raphael – the Lord of the Arts is the first film adaptation of the life and work of one of the most famous artists in the world - Raphael Sanzio. Few figures in the history of art have lived a life so full of intensity and fascination quite like Raphael Sanzio. He died aged just 37 and yet managed to leave an indelible mark on art. In a well-balanced dialogue between historical reconstructions and artistic commentary, the film retraces the most significant moments of Raphael’s life. Expert contributions delivered with feeling by great art historians Antonio Paolucci, Vincenzo Farinella and Antonio Natali, enrich the story of the life and work of the artist. The film is set in 20 locations, two of which are major exclusives, the Vatican Logge and Cardinal Bibbiena’s apartment in the Apostolic Palace, and shows over 30 works of art, among the most famous and most representative of Raphael’s entire work. This is a project developed by the creators of “Florence and the Uffizi Gallery in 3D” and “The Vatican Museums in 3D”, supported by contributions from some of the best creative talents from the Italian film industry, such as production designer Francesco Frigeri and costume designer Maurizio Millenotti. Playing the part of Raphael is actor Flavio Parenti, with Enrico Lo Verso in the role of Giovanni Santi, Angela Curri as Fornarina and Marco Cocci as Pietro Bembo. Beauty comes to life in a crescendo through the brushwork and enduring genius of one of the most talented artists the world has ever known.

  • LEONARDO DA VINCI: THE GENIUS IN MILAN

    Runtime: 90 mins     Rating:

    At the end of the Fifteenth Century Leonardo da Vinci lived for eighteen years in Milan at the court of Ludovico Sforza, known as ‘Il Moro’. It was a long, important period in his life, that left a lasting impression on the city. In Spring 2015 Milan paid tribute to Leonardo by holding a large exhibition at the Palazzo Reale. Stemming from this exhibition came the film Leonardo da Vinci - The Genius in Milan, which uses a combination of documentary interviews and mise-en-scènes to tell the story of the Artist’s world and the treasures he left us. Inside the exhibition, under the ambiguous gaze of the Belle Ferronnière, one of the paintings loaned by the Louvre for the occasion, we are welcomed by the curator, Pietro Marani. Right before those very works of art, he has the task of introducing such special subjects as the reasons why Leonardo travelled north and his dreams of maturity, as well as discussing Portrait Art and the art of drawing, the works of art that have stayed in the city and those that have returned to it (interacting with the past, the urban context of Milan definitely plays a leading role in the film). Marani’s words are upheld by experts talking about their specialist knowledge, interviewed against the backdrop of the symbols of Leonardo’s Milan, like the monument in Piazza della Scala and the Museum of Science and Technology. The interviews include Claudio Giorgione analyzing Leonardo the scientist and Richard Schofield on Leonardo the architect; Daniela Pizzagalli is our guide at the Sforza court while Maria Teresa Fiorio reflects on the painters that were followers of the Master. Alongside these interviews, appearing in authentic settings such as the Bicocca degli Arcimboldi and the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, are the historical figures who were part of Leonardo’s life in Milan, played by actors Cristiana Capotondi, Alessandro Haber, Gabriella Pession and Nicola Nocella. A more cinematic approach to the story, a far cry from the storyline of TV documentaries, retains the balance between reality and fiction and the harmonious coexistence of the actors’ roles. Milan is the frame and Pietro Marani and the experts the story-tellers of Leonardo the artist and scientist; while prominent, historical figures of the Renaissance such as Ludovico il Moro, Beatrice d'Este, Cecilia Gallerani and Salaì, tell the story of Leonardo the man, in the context of what was a truly legendary period in the city's history, and for the history of art.

  • Uncle Vanya: Stage Russia HD

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating:

    Uncle Vanya: Stage Russia HD (Vakhtangov Theatre): Rimas Tuminas' reimagining of Anton Chekhov's tale about broken illusions and dashed hopes is freed from its traditional trappings, leaving behind a battlefield for passions and colliding ambitions, We are given an empty space from which life has departed, a theatre space with grey slips, a plaster of Paris lion – a symbol of Petersburg, perhaps the ancestor who built the house came from there, a workbench made out of rough boards, an old sofa, several chairs of different colors. This "Uncle Vanya" is about what Chekhov’s characters think and what they admit to only at moments of emotional turmoil. They are at times tongue-tied or overly brutal, but their revelations break out of them fervently, desperately just as a man breaks out of a stuffy room into the open air. A Golden Mask Winner for Best Drama, featuring the inimitable Sergey Makovetskiy as Voynitsky. 180 minutes (with one 15 minute intermission included) Russian with English subtitles

  • Royal Opera: Rigoletto (Live)

    Runtime: 165 mins     Rating: LIVE

    The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Verdi’s potent tragedy in David McVicar’s production for The Royal Opera. Rigoletto, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter. When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect... David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances. The opera’s many musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite, plangent duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the gorgeous Act III quartet that beautifully weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion. Giuseppe Verdi wrote in 1855 that Rigoletto was his ‘best opera’. He had had to overcome state censorship to stage it – the censors objected to its depiction of an immoral ruler – but he was vindicated by the premiere’s huge success in 1851. Rigoletto was performed 250 times in the next 10 years and has remained one of the most popular of all operas.

  • Royal Opera: Tosca (Live)

    Runtime: 200 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Tosca is one of the great evenings of opera, and from its strident opening chords conjures up a world of political instability and menace. Jonathan Kent’s production for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias, including ‘Vissi d’arte’ and ‘E lucevan le stelle’. Giacomo Puccini’s dramatic work was a hit with audiences on its 1900 premiere and it remains one of the most performed of all operas – with its gripping plot and glorious music, it’s easy to see why. A candle-lit church, Scarpia’s gloomy study with its hidden torture chamber and the false optimism of a Roman dawn: this handsome production throws into relief the ruthlessly taut drama, as the tension is wound up towards a fateful conclusion. Puccini’s meticulously researched score is infused with the same authentic detail, from distant cannon fire during the Act I Te Deum to tolling church bells and the sounds of a firing squad.

  • 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.’

  • 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.

  • I, Claude Monet

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: TBC

    EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is the originator and market leader for bringing blockbuster art events from galleries around the world to cinemas. Intertwined with artist biographies and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the galleries, the films are informative, accessible and entertaining. Over the last three seasons they have been enjoyed by more than 1 million people in cinemas around the world. Most importantly, the films are shot for the big screen and offer an immersive, cinematic journey through the world’s most loved art and its creators.
    I, CLAUDE MONET In this striking film from award-winning director Phil Grabsky, we take a new look at arguably the world’s favourite artist – through his own words. Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
    Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, often suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. An unmissable cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

  • Ballet de Paris: Pite / Pérex / Shecter (Live)

    Runtime: 90 mins     Rating: LIVE

    "When I choreograph, it is the very act of creating and observing that connects me most deeply with the natural world, with the brutality and beauty it contains." - Crystal Pite Three contemporary choreographers come together for a program that leads the Opera's dancers to a new form of modernity where bodies vibrate with intensity. Canada's Crystal Pite returns with The Seasons’ Canon, a dazzling creation that thrilled audiences at the Palais Garnier last season. Spain's Iván Pérez occupies the stage of the Opera for the first time with a creation for ten male dancers. To conclude the evening, Israel’s Hofesh Shechter, often lauded for his telluric, trance-evoking dances, offers a new version of his piece The Art of Not Looking Back.

  • 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).

  • Royal Ballet: Swan Lake (Live)

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    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.
