NT Live: King Lear (12A)

NT Live: King Lear

National Theatre Live Cinema Screening

King Lear

By William Shakespeare

Director: Ian McKellen


★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ (Daily Telegraph)


★★★★★ 'Ian McKellen adds to the roster of his greatest achievements with this extraordinarily moving portrayal of King Lear.' (Independent)


Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.


Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.  Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.


Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.



Please Note: This performance contains strobe lighting.

Royal Ballet Live: Mayerling (12A)

Royal Ballet Live: Mayerling

Dangerous desires, family secrets and political intrigues twist through every moment of daring choreography in Kenneth Macmillan’s ballet inspired by true events.


CAST:

Crown Prince Rudolf - Steven McRae

Baroness Mary Vetsera - Sarah Lamb


Choreography: Kenneth Macmillan

Music: Franz Liszt

Arranged and orchestrated by: John Lanchbery


A celebrated classic of the Royal Ballet repertory at cinemas for the first time, Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf.


From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide. The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballet's many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.


Approximate running time: 3 hours 15 minutes including two intervals.

In the midst of a marital crisis, a High Court judge must decide if she should order a life-saving blood transfusion for a teen with cancer despite his family's refusal to accept medical treatment for religious reasons.


Thompson’s performance as a brilliant but tortured judge elevates the second Ian McEwan adaptation of this year’s Toronto film festival, a stately courtroom saga with parallels to the Charlie Gard case (The Guardian)

Royal Ballet Live: La Bayadere

'Delayed Live' screening from The Royal Opera House


Natalia  Makarova’s  production  of  this  19th-century classic ballet  brings  an exotic  world  of  temple  dancers  and  noble warriors  to  life.


CAST

Nikia - Marianela Nuñez

Solor - Vadim Muntagirov

Gamzatti - Natalia Osipova


Choreography: Natalia  Makarova  after  Marius  Petipa

Music:  Ludwig  Minkus 

Orchestrated by:  John  Lanchbery


Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’  – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.

The Wife (15)

The Wife

Director: Björn Runge

Writers: Jane Anderson (screenplay), Meg Wolitzer (novel)

Stars: Christian Slater, Max Irons, Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Elizabeth McGovern


Glenn Close delivers one of the finest performances of her career in this compelling drama about a woman emerging from the shadow of her famous husband. Joan (Glenn Close) and Joe (Jonathan Pryce) compliment one another after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.


"Close plays this ignored, pushed-aside woman like a gathering storm, drawing us into the mind and heart of a heroine who's not going to take it any more." Rolling Stone


"Close is phenomenal as ‘The Wife’ who puts life on hold. Like a bomb ticking away towards detonation, Glenn Close commands the centre of The Wife: still, formidable and impossible to look away from. Extraordinary. One of the richest, most riveting and complicated performances of her career." The Hollywood Reporter

Lady Gaga is utterly mesmerising in Bradley Cooper's outrageously watchable remake of  A Star Is Born - the third remake of the original 1937 film, which was adapted into a 1954 musical starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and then remade as a 1976 rock musical with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.


In this new take on the tragic love story, Bradley Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer… until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight.


But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

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.

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.

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris.
