Royal Opera Live Screening: Faust (12A)

Royal Opera Live Screening: Faust

Experience the decadence and elegance of 1870s Paris in David McVicar’s spectacular production of Gounod’s best-loved opera.


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. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognisable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.



Sung in French with English subtitles. A delayed live screening from The Royal Opera House.


Director: David McVicar

Set designs: Charles Edwards

Costume designs: Brigitte Reiffenstuel

Fisherman's Friends

Cast includes Tuppence Middleton, James Purefoy, Christopher Villiers, Daniel Mays, Noel Clarke, Christian Brassington

Directed by Chris Foggin

Duration: 112 mins.


A cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village and tries to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune.


As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.


This re-telling of the story focuses on events leading up to their fame and their effect on other people. Already being compared to other British feel-good hits like 'The Full Monty' and 'Calendar Girls'.

White Wedding (featuring Bootleg Blondie)

White Wedding (featuring Bootleg Blondie)

By John Gregory

Presented by Harley's Aunt Productions

Directed by Katie Jones


“The outrageous, time bendingly funny play by John Gregory”


Featuring live music from top tribute act Bootleg Blondie.


Lead vocalist Debbie Harris (yes - her real name!) was picked out of 15,000 applicants to represent Debbie Harry on two shows of “Even Better than the Real Thing” on BBC1. She has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and, like her heroine, is typically outrageous on stage.


The show “White Wedding” tells the story of a group of accidental time travellers from the present day who find themselves transported back to the darkness of World War II. Apparently even the most expensive iPhone is of little use in such circumstances!


Only true love can overcome such danger. But who is in love with whom? And where to find a white wedding dress in the middle of a world war?


Love Comedy? Love Blondie? You have to see this!


Tickets: Adult £14 *Early bird £10 before 23 April, Under 16 £8

Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.

Greta (15)

Greta

Starring:  Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe

Director: Neil Jordan

Screenplay: Neil Jordan & Ray Wright

Duration: 108 mins.


A sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) doesn't think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner. That owner is Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and an aching loneliness. Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to widowed Greta. The two become fast friends - but Greta's maternal charms begin to dissolve and grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta's life is what it seems in this suspense thriller from Academy Award winning director Neil Jordan ('The Crying Game', 'Michael Collins').


Jordan contrives to make Huppert’s mere presence in the frame almost absurdly frightening, and Huppert compounds the fright with elegant comedy, so that while the movie is impossible to take seriously, it’s also hard to resist, like an unattended bag on the subway that’s just begging you to look inside.
