ROH Live: Queen of Spades (12A)

ROH Live: Queen of Spades

This is a delayed screening of live performance. Opera in three acts. New production. Tchaikovsky’s most ambitious opera contains some of his greatest music and is a powerful study of destructive obsession.


Music: Pyotr il’yich Tchaikovsky

Director: Stefan Herheim

Conductor: Antonio Pappano

Gherman: Aleksandrs Antonenko

Prince: Yeletsky Vladimir Stoyanov

Countess: Felicity Palmer

Liza: Eva-Maria Westbroek


In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production that has already garnered five star reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires. Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.

What’s involved in sacrificing your private life and your piece of mind for something more than a single issue? Does she dare?

ROH Live: La Traviata (12A)

ROH Live: La Traviata

This is a delayed screening of live performance from The Royal Opera House. Richard Eyre's stunning production of Verdi's best-loved opera returns with star sopranos Ermonela Jaho and Angel Blue as Violetta; the casts also include Plácido Domingo and Charles Castronovo.



Music: Giuseppe Verdi

Libretto: Francesco Maria Piave

Director: Richard Eyre

Designer: Bob Crowley

Lighting designer: Jean Kalman

Director of movement: Jane Gibson


From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heart-breaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at

its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.



Approximate running time: 3 hours 35 minutes, including two intervals, sung in Italian with English subtitles

The Favourite (15)

The Favourite

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Stars: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, James Smith, Mark Gatiss


Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper.


When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.



Metro ★★★★★ "This is The Crown like you’ve never seen it before."


The Independent ★★★★★ "Consistently, relentlessly hilarious, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are on top form in this deranged court comedy"


The Guardian ★★★★ "Yorgos Lanthimos brings scabrous energy to this dark comedy of 18th-century court intrigue and Colman excels herself."

Colette (15)

Colette

Director: Wash Westmoreland

Stars: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, Eleanor Tomlinson


Unconventional country girl Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette has married a charismatic egomaniacal man of letters, 14 years her senior, known by the single name, Willy. Through his auspices, Colette is introduced into the artistic world of Paris where her creative appetite is sparked.


Ever quick to capitalise on talent, Willy permits Colette to write her novels only if she does so in his name. The phenomenal success of her Claudine series makes Willy a famous writer and Colette and Willy the first modern celebrity couple. Although they are the toast of the town, lack of recognition for her work begins to gnaw on Colette.


Set at the dawn of the modern age, COLETTE is the story of a woman who has been denied her voice by an overbearing man, and who goes to extraordinary lengths to find it; a battle of the sexes at the very beginning of the modern age, when seismic shifts were taking place in the roles of men and women.


More than a century after the publication of her first novel, Colette is still one of the best-selling, and beloved, French authors.

Mary, Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I.


Each young Queen beholds her 'sister' in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.


Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.

Director: David McVicar

Set designs: Charles Edwards

Costume designs: Brigitte Reiffenstuel
