National Theatre Live: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Directed by: Benedict Andrews

Starring: Brian Gleeson; Richard Hansell; Colm Meaney; Sienna Miller; Jack O’Connell; Lisa Palfrey; Michael J. Shannon; Hayley Squires

Distributor: National Theatre Live

Captured live on stage


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?


"This thrilling revival directed by Benedict Andrews burns bright enough to scorch"  NY Times


★★★★ "A bold reimagining…innovative and powerfully acted"  Sunday Times


★★★★ "Jack O’Connell impressively weaves between withdrawal and outbursts of violence"  The Financial Times

The Producers Blues Band

The Producers Blues Band

One of the most exciting and stylish new wave bands on the circuit, Bournemouth based The Producers are among the leaders of the current Blues phenomenon topped by Joe Bonamassa and John Mayer.


It was 25 years and thirteen albums ago that the Producers first appeared on the UK music scene and since then they have gigged their version of the blues in clubs, theatres and on major festival stages worldwide and they continue to do so.


The Producers are something really special, playing the freshest live blues in Britain today. Concerned with feel and attitude rather than slavishly copying ‘hand me down’ American music, The Producers move effortlessly between their own well crafted material and seriously reinvigorated classics stamped with their own characteristic identity. By not treating the music as some kind of museum piece The Producers are likely to incur the displeasure of a section of the blues hierarchy, however, at the same time they are barnstorming across the country building a massive audience at sell-out club dates and developing an equally impressive reputation that no one can ignore.


The new music is unashamedly raw and gutsy, it offers a response to the sophistication of London Blues and above all it re-connects the band to its past.

Director: Martin McDonagh

Screenplay: Martin McDonagh

Stars: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Peter Dinklage, Samara Weaving


After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon -- an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence -- gets involved, the battle is only exacerbated.


'So sharply written that it cuts, the third movie from award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh is a dramedy that starts with cleverness and wit, then opens up into something truthfully human.' Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media


'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Is an Absolute Marvel. Featuring standout performances from Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell, the writer-director Martin McDonagh’s latest is one of the best films of the year.' Christopher Orr, The Atlantic


'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri review – darkly hilarious portrait of disenfranchised USA. Frances McDormand gives her best performance since Fargo as a plucky vigilante who confronts both the police and the tragedy of her daughter’s death by erecting roadside monuments to her grief and rage.'

In June 1971 The New York Times, the Washington Post and the nation’s major newspapers took a brave stand for freedom of speech and reported on the Pentagon Papers, the massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned four decades and four US Presidents.


At the time, the Post’s Katherine Graham (Meryl Streep) was still finding her footing as the country’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), the paper’s volatile, driven editor, was trying to enhance the stature of the struggling, local paper.


Together, the two formed an unlikely team, as they were forced to come together and make the bold decision to support The New York Times and fight the Nixon Administration’s unprecedented attempt to restrict the first amendment.

ROH Live: Bernstein Centenary

ROH Live: Bernstein Centenary

NEW WAYNE MCGREGOR I THE AGE OF ANXIETY

NEW CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON

THREE BALLETS


Choreography:        Wayne McGregor

Music: Leonard Bernstein

Conductor: Koen Kessels

Orchestra: Orchestra of the Royal Opera House


Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.


The Royal Ballet celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with an all-Bernstein programme from the Company’s three associate choreographers, Wayne McGregor, Liam Scarlett and Christopher Wheeldon.


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 and West 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.


The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals

Set in a dugout in Aisne in 1918, it is the story of a group of British officers, led by the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope, variously awaiting their fate.


'London Film Festival – Journey's End review: wonderfully acted First World War drama goes deep into the trenches. Sam Claflin, as the broken, alchoholic Captain Stanhope, gives us a commanding study in despair, his zeal blighted by everything he’s seen, every new order from the unyielding chain of command.'

Director:        Phyllida Lloyd

Designer:        Anthony Ward

Music:                Giuseppe Verdi

Conductor:        Antonio Pappano

Macbeth:        Željko Lučić


Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.


Verdi’s opera inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy is conducted by Antonio Pappano, with a magnificent cast including Anna Netrebko, Željko Lučić and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo.


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.


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.

Show of Hands Duo Tour

Show of Hands Duo Tour

‘Where We’re Bound”

Show of Hands Duo Tour 2018  with guest Geoff Lakeman


It’s a rare treat when a multi-award-winning band, renowned enough to sell out the Royal Albert Hall five times over, offer the chance to be enjoyed in smaller, more intimate settings. But Show of Hands are known for doing things differently so that’s exactly what they’re up to with their 2018 duo tour, Where We’re Bound.


Steve Knightley and Phil Beer are two extraordinary craftsmen with one unique sound. Usually joined by ‘third member of the duo’ Miranda Sykes, this tour puts the magic of the original duo format firmly back into the spotlight.


Steve said, “Big shows like the Royal Albert Hall and festivals offer us the chance to make a big sound, often bringing in talented friends to add to the experience. But there is something about playing as a duo that offers something different and more personal, both to ourselves and to our audiences. Phil and I can’t wait; it’ll be like the old days, but with more reliable transport!”


Show of Hands weave story and melody to create a spellbinding display of consummate musicianship. This is an unmissable celebration of Steve and Phil’s enduring impact on roots, acoustic and folk music. The 2018 duo tour won’t just be focusing on nostalgia though. A raft of new songs will be showcased, reminding us that Steve Knightley’s razor-sharp song writing and commentary is more relevant than ever.


Steve and Phil’s special guest is fellow Devonian Geoff Lakeman, chieftain of the brilliant Lakeman tribe. A compelling musician in his own right, the release of his debut album ‘After All These Years’ has seen festivals and concert venues clamouring to book him, suggesting retirement might be off the cards for some time.


'After a triumphant two sets, a standing ovation was rewarded with one last number: the stone-cold Show of Hands classic Santiago. We were about to make an enforced exit, but my wife turned to me and said, ‘We’ve got to stay for this…’  (folkradio.co.uk)

'Director Paul Thomas Anderson takes a break from films that are trying to "say something" to return to a story about people; this is one of his best, most beautiful, and most perverse works.' Common Sense Media


'Daniel Day-Lewis sews up another great performance in "Phantom Thread," Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, a luxuriant love story about a couturier and his muse set in 1950s London.' The NYTimes


'We’re not so much watching Woodcock the rarefied designer as Day-Lewis the rarefied actor, his immersion so uncanny that he can illuminate a soul at once titanic and stunted'. Vulture


'Day-Lewis gives a performance of an almost ridiculously charismatic outrageousness, the sort only he could get away with.' Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Sarah McQuaid

Sarah McQuaid

“The precision and sophistication of the writing and playing blows me away. I am so glad to be involved,” writes guitar legend Michael Chapman in his introduction to Sarah McQuaid’s fifth solo album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous – which he offered to produce after meeting Sarah at a festival where they were both on the bill.


Recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ards International Guitar Festival in Northern Ireland, Sarah’s also drawn critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences:  “I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever,” wrote The Huffington Post.


Reviewers of the Madrid-born, Chicago-raised, Cornwall-based singer/songwriter’s previous albums have repeatedly alluded to her “relative obscurity” (The Big Takeover) and “under-the-radar” (The Vinyl District) profile. With her new album – on which she expands her battery of instruments to include piano and electric guitar – she looks set to change that.


“One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift.” – The Huffington Post

 

“The songs are acutely observed and literate, almost like journal notes set to music. They’re measured and tranquil but they’re never dull because there is always a sense of restlessness and unease behind the poetry.... And it’s all lovely.” – R2/Rock 'n' Reel

Leviathan - James Wilton Dance

Leviathan - James Wilton Dance

With flying bodies, last minute catches and an energy you have to see to believe, LEVIATHAN pushes the boundaries of what the body can do. Martial Arts, sports, break-dance and even professional wrestling influences combine to create a breathtaking experience for audiences.


LEVIATHAN is the critically acclaimed work by award winning Cornish choreographer James Wilton.


LEVIATHAN follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale: Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction.


Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick.  Featuring a cast of 6, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, LEVIATHAN will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.


LEVIATHAN is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.

Royal Ballet Live: Manon

Royal Ballet Live: Manon

Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet, set to music by Massenet.


Choreography:        Kenneth MacMillan

Music:                Jules Massenet

Conductor:        Martin Yates

Orchestra:        Orchestra of the Royal Opera House


Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.


Kenneth MacMillan’s masterpiece of modern ballet is revived this Season as part of continuing celebrations of MacMillan’s profound impact on British ballet, to mark the 25th anniversary of his death.


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.


Kenneth MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel by Abbé Prévost, already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. Renowned dance musician Leighton Lucas and his assistant Hilda Gaunt provided a score drawn from across Massenet’s music, including his famous yearning Elégie as the theme for the lovers. The premiere was given on 7 March 1974, with the lead roles of Manon and Des Grieux 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.



The performance lasts about 2 hours 35 minutes, including two intervals

Royal Ballet Live: Swan Lake

Royal Ballet Live: Swan Lake

CHOREOGRAPHY MARIUS PETIPA AND LEVIVANOV

ADDITIONAL CHOREOGRAPHY LIAM SCARLETT AND FREDERICK ASHTON

MUSIC PYOTR IL'YICH TCHAIKOVSKY


The Royal Ballet presents a new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet, with additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane.


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 fl ock 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 fi rst 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.



The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals.

6 Hands: John Williams, John Etheridge & Gary Ryan, guitars

After many years of playing together John Williams and John Etheridge are joined by classical guitarist and composer Gary Ryan in a wonderful, varied programme of solos, duos and trios. All pieces will be introduced by the players.


John Williams


Legendary classical guitar maestro whose repertoire ranges from the standard Baroque and Spanish classics to more innovative contemporary works. Born in Melbourne, Australia, he was taught the instrument by his father and went on to study music at the Royal College of Music in London. He has since toured many countries playing solo and with orchestras. He has also appeared regularly on radio and television - and his music is familiar to many film-goers, most notably The Deerhunter (Cavatina). He has collaborated with many outstanding musicians, including Julian Bream, Itzhak Perlman, Andre Previn, Cleo Laine and John Dankworth. The complete collection of his 58 CD’s (and one DVD) for Sony/CBS was issued in 2016. In 2007 he was presented with an Edison lifetime achievement award.


'John Williams is the undisputed king of the classical guitar' (The Times).



John Etheridge


One of the world's most respected guitarists, John Etheridge's music spans a myriad of styles and influences. The guitarist for the celebrated jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli, Etheridge has performed as one half of a duo with the eminent classical guitarist, John Williams and has also performed with Soft Machine, Pat Metheny, Andy Summers and Nigel Kennedy.


'I never wanted to be a star, just a highly respected musician like John Etheridge' (Sting in The Guardian).


Gary Ryan


Gary Ryan is one of the world’s leading exponents of the guitar and has performed to international critical acclaim for over twenty years, winning praise for his formidable technique, outstanding musicianship and entertainingly diverse programmes.


In 2013 he became the first guitarist since John Williams in 1983 to be awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Music in recognition of his contribution to the instrument, and only the fourth guitarist ever to receive this honour -  other recipients being Andrés Segovia and Julian Bream.


His celebrated guitar compositions (regularly broadcast on Classic FM) have broadened the instrument’s appeal by combining traditional classical guitar technique with more contemporary styles and a rich variety of musical influences from around the world. His solo work, Benga Beat, was premièred to great acclaim in 2011 and can be seen on YouTube in HD, alongside other performances of his own compositions and works by Dowland, Bach, and Piazzolla.

The Mill on the Floss - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

The Mill on the Floss - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School


By George Eliot

Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Directed by Paul Clarkson

WEST COUNTRY TOUR 2018


“They had entered the thorny wilderness, and the golden gates of their childhood had for ever closed behind them.”


In this fluid and visceral re-imagining, Helen Edmundson (Queen Anne, Coram Boy, The Heresy of Love) turns George Eliot's unforgettable story of first love, sibling rivalry and regret into a wonderfully theatrical examination of the psyche of one of classic literature’s most charismatic heroines.


Brought up at Dorlcote Mill, Maggie Tulliver worships her brother Tom and is desperate to win the approval of her parents, but her passionate, wayward nature and her fierce intelligence bring her into constant conflict with her family.


As she reaches adulthood, the clash between their expectations and her desires is painfully played out as she finds herself torn between her relationships with three very different men: her proud and stubborn brother Tom; hunchbacked Phillip Wakem, the son of her family's worst enemy; and the charismatic yet dangerous Stephen Guest.


With its poignant portrayal of sibling relationships, The Mill on the Floss is considered George Eliot's most autobiographical novel and here Edmundson loses none of its breadth, whilst beautifully examining the complex nature of relationships and love.  


‘With rare theatrical vibrancy, Helen Edmundson’s free adaptation distils the essence of George Eliot’s feminist novel’ – Evening Standard


‘…not only re-invents the novel, but pushes the boat out theatrically way beyond its usual mooring' - The Guardian


‘An intensely moving dramatisation – stylised, but free of empty theatrics’. - The Times
