ROH Live: Elektra (12A)

ROH Live: Elektra

Strauss’s thrilling and audacious adaptation of Greek tragedy receives a new staging by the award-winning director Christof Loy with Nina Stemme in the title role.


This uncompromising opera, about a daughter intent on bloody revenge and a mother driven to madness, has provoked critics to lively debate and both shocked and excited audiences since its 1909 premiere. Antonio Pappano conducts music that combines violence with moments of exquisite tenderness in his first Strauss interpretation for The Royal Opera since 2002. The outstanding cast includes Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde in last Season’s Der Ring des Nibelungen) in the title role, and Karita Mattila in her role debut as the haunted queen Klytämnestra.


Sung in German with English subtitles.

NT Live: Leopoldstadt (12A)

NT Live: Leopoldstadt

Leopoldstadt

A new play by Tom Stoppard

Directed by Patrick Marber


Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (The Times), Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard’s (Shakespeare in Love, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead) critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance. The play has been widely praised by the critics and has received an Olivier Award nomination for Best New Play.


At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world. The play tells the story of the Merz’s. We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.


Marking 75 years since the end of World War II, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed

  

This performance has been filmed live in front of an audience at the Wyndham's Theatre in London’s West End.

1917 (15)

1917

*Winner of Best Motion Picture at this year's Golden Globe Awards*


Directed by Sam Mendes

Cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong

Duration: 129 minutes


Sam Mendes’ visceral and immersive vision of the First World War battlefields. Two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay - 'Captain Fantastic') and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman - 'Game of Thrones'), are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop hundreds of soldiers – Blake’s own brother among them – from walking into a deadly trap.



“Sam Mendes marries technical virtuosity with jittery thrills and an emotional core to reinvent the Great War movie – and deliver possibly his best film.” - Time Out


"...a modern war classic and one of the best movies of the year." - New York Post


"Sam Mendes delivers the film of his career by mashing up the survivalist thrills of The Revenant with the helter-skelter mayhem of a shoot'em'up video game, and setting it during the Great War." - The Times


‘1917’ is a haunting, technical marvel and one of Hollywood’s best war films - Military Times

Duration 116 mins.


In 1970 the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend Bob Hope. At the time Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head.



Friday 24 April performance has been rescheduled to Friday 4 September. If you have pre-booked tickets, they will be valid for the new date.
