Dir: James Franco | USA | 2017 | 103 mins

Tragi-comic, true story based on the novel about the making of cult 'so-bad-its-good' film 'The Room' by Greg Sestero . A poignant and charming celebration of friendship, Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) and Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) meet at acting class. A Hollywood outsider with an unusual and indistinguishable Eastern-European accent, Wiseau acts, directs, writes and funds his own film which Sestero acts in with him. The film goes on to be a successful disasterpiece. Tipped to be one of James Franco's best performances as his career takes a more focussed and serious direction.

Tosca

Tosca

Puccini’s thrilling Tosca is a story of love, terror, the abuse of power, and the unquenchable longing for freedom.

When an escaped political prisoner takes refuge in a church, an opera singer and a painter are drawn into a twisting plot that puts them at the mercy of the secret police and its network of torturers and spies. Rivalling the splendour of Franco Zeffirelli’s Napoleonic-era sets and costumes, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for extraordinary singing. Kristine Opolais stars as the titular prima donna, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as her artist lover and Bryn Terfel as the villainous police chief—one of his signature roles. Andris Nelsons conducts.

From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads

Adrian Berry’s acclaimed sell-out production tells the tale of a young David Bowie obsessive.

Martin is a boy with problems - an illness no-one understands and a head full of sound and vision. So when an unexpected gift arrives on his birthday, Martin embarks on a thrilling journey in the footsteps of his obsession, leading him to discover some long-hidden truths about himself. What follows will change his life forever...

Powerful and touching, music and magic realism collide in this darkly funny and moving tour-de-force solo show featuring Alex Walton and the voice of comedian Rob Newman. With a blistering Bowie soundtrack, the life of the pop fan is dissected in this tale of unnatural teenage wildlife.

Empower Yourself

Discover your personal qualities

Would you like to:

  • Learn how to play to your strengths? 
  • Develop insights into yourself and others? 
  • Create strategies to make better life choices? 

Being more aware of your unique and personal qualities is essential if you want to get the most out of yourself, your work and your relationships. 

In this 3-hour workshop you’ll learn a number of useful techniques that you can apply to enhance your relationship with yourself and others. Jess draws on her training in psychology, mindful self-compassion, and the performing arts in this interactive session. She is a Women’s Leadership Coach, and has been helping to boost women’s confidence for over ten years. Jess is regularly quoted in women's magazines, and speaks at wellbeing events across the UK.

We’ll focus on three main things:

1. Understanding your personal strengths (things that truly energise you). Based on well-established personality profiling tools, Jess will help you identify your top key strengths and how to apply these to your personal life and your work.

2. Developing your self-awareness by looking at your core values, desired feelings and your key motivators. You’ll have a better understanding of how to improve your life, your work and your relationships.

3. Creating strategies based on your personal qualities can help you make better life choices for now and in the future.

All these elements together can help you enjoy your life, work and relationships more.

A well-packed, enjoyable and informative morning. Jess is an excellent, engaging and enthusiastic facilitator. The exercises were thought provoking, well structured and encouraged reflection and discussion. I also found it useful to hear other participants thoughts and experiences.” Caroline, Empower Yourself Workshop, Ludlow

Yende in Barbiere 2.jpg

The poor country boy Nemorino is in love with Adina, a confident landowner, but she is way out of his league—financially and otherwise. But when he buys a “love potion” from a travelling quack, the results are rather more than he bargained for. Charmingly staged by Bartlett Sher, Donizetti’s beloved masterpiece combines deft comic timing with touching emotional depth. The production stars Matthew Polenzani, who enthralled Met audiences as Nemorino in 2013 with his moving “Una furtiva lagrima.” Rising South African soprano Pretty Yende is the spirited Adina, Davide Luciano makes his Met debut as the arrogant soldier Belcore, and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo is the potion-peddling Doctor Dulcamara. Domingo Hindoyan conducts.

In a departure from our usual range of music, edge will be celebrating the beauty, excitement and sheer entertainment of music from the world of film and television. It will be an eclectic mix, from a couple of James Bond numbers to a movement from Mozart's Requiem. John Williams' music features strongly including numbers from a couple of Harry Potter films, beautiful choral music from Schindler's List and Dry Your Tears, Afrika from Amistad. Ennio Morricone's haunting music Gabriel's Oboe from The Mission is contrasted with Danny Elfman's Alice's Theme from Alice in Wonderland. Television music will include the popular theme music for The Vicar of Dibley by Howard Goodall and the rousing and very memorable Alleluia from ITV's recent series, Victoria.

Continuing its link with film-music composer Richard Harvey, the choir is very excited to be performing the music from Luther, specially arranged by the composer for Edge's forces. It will also be performing his very popular Kyrie for the Magdalene from the Da Vinci Code.

Quill with Bev Bevan

Joy_Hat.jpg

It’s really not that often that a band can lay claim to a consistent, continuous gig sheet that goes back to the 70’s. that’s rare. And it is exceptionally rare to see a band grow in status, adding new members with great skills and eloquent musicianship, and developing in new and adventurous directions. But that is exactly what has happened with Quill.

Quill who hit the stage as a seven piece, once again featuring Bev Bevan ( The Move, ELO, Black Sabbath.) on percussion, are bursting with fresh creativity. A Quill set takes you on a journey through a unexpectedly wide range of powerful story telling material. The songs are delivered with imagination and lyrical beauty, all shot through with the presence and ease that only real stage craft can bring.

It’s not easy to sum up any band in a few words , but Quill make it especially tricky. When you draw on deep diverse musical sources and when long lifetimes of experience inform your stage craft and presentation , interesting things can and do happen.

This event will be held in the Main Auditorium. Tickets: £20

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

NTLive_CAT_Listing_Portrait_UK.jpg

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?

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.

La Bohème

BohemeBOHNC_0748 2.jpg

The world’s most popular opera returns with an exciting young cast in Franco Zeffirelli’s legendary production. Poverty-stricken poet Rodolfo and his artist friends eke out a precarious existence in bohemian Paris, alternately practising their art, laughing, quarrelling, dodging the landlord, and living it up in their local cafe. When Rodolfo meets the delicate Mimì, the pair instantly fall in love. But Mimì is ill, Rodolfo is jealous, and their romance is doomed from the start. Opera superstars Sonya Yoncheva and Michael Fabiano play the heart-breaking couple, singing two sublime Puccini favourites—“Sì, mi chiamano Mimì” and “Che gelida manina.” Zeffirelli’s stupendous onstage recreations of 19th-century Paris are sure to take your breath away.

The Winter's Tale

Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014. Building on the success of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Winter’s Tale received ecstatic praise at its premiere, acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for its intelligent, distinctive and emotionally powerful story, told through exquisite dance. It is now widely judged to be a modern ballet classic.

The story follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret – and after a seemingly miraculous return to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. With powerful designs by Bob Crowley and atmospheric music by Joby Talbot, The Winter’s Tale is a masterful modern narrative ballet.

A live stream from the Royal Opera House to our cinema screen.

Tickets are £17 / £16 concessions / £8.50 under 18

Bobby Mair

Loudly Insecure

Over the past couple of years, Bobby has become an instantly recognisable face on British television and the UK comedy circuit. This year, he returns to the Edinburgh Fringe for his latest show Loudly Insecure.

30 years ago, Bobby was put up for adoption and now he’s tracking down his birth family one by one. Saying his search has hit a couple of snags would be an understatement and he still has relatives out there who continue to elude him - except for Justin Bieber. Loudly Insecure gives Bobby a chance to fill you in on the wildly dramatic twists and turns of his quest, the accidental broadening of his search for next of kin, plus he’ll fill you in on a couple of other musings along the way; like his love of strangers, techniques to impress his personal trainer and if remembering virginity loss is inappropriate.

Recently, Bobby has supported the likes of Bill Burr and Doug Stanhope on tour and also took time out to professionally troll Julian Assange, garnering international press pick up. Katie Hopkins has also had a brush with Bobby after he donated his appearance fee from his booking on TLC series 'What If Katie Hopkins Ruled The World’, to causes he knew she’d hate. This noble deed didn’t go unnoticed and earned him over 500,000 hits on YouTube, a figure far exceeding the number of viewers who watched the original appearance on Hopkins’s show.

Bobby is currently shooting his first comedy series for VICELAND, which airs this summer. Co-starring the love of his life Harriet Kemsley, the show follows the pair’s hilariously dysfunctional journey towards their impending marriage. Bobby is also a series regular in Channel 4’s World of Weird and is the roaming reporter for satirical political show Sam Delaney’s News Thing (RT). He also hosted and wrote The Bobby Mair Show for Comedy Central online which was quickly commissioned after his huge viral success on KSI:Demolished for the channel. Additionally Bobby is a seasoned panellist on 8 out of 10 Cats (C4), Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Virtually famous (E4), Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC3), and Safe Word (ITV) to name a few.

Redoubtable (cert tbc) PREVIEW

BORDERLINES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
Tickets will be available on Friday 19 January, 10am

Dir: Michel Hazanavicius | France | 2017 | 107 mins | subtitles

borderlines 2005 logo copy.jpg


Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) undertakes a biopic of French cinema’s most notorious director, Jean-Luc Godard that is far from conventional. Adapted from the autobiographical novel Un an après by actor Anne Wiazemsky (who appears in La Chinoise), the film sets the unravelling of their marriage against Godard’s spectacular philosophical and artistic meltdown during the volatile events of 1968. At the outset, the tone is light, comedic and jaunty, with a flavour of the director’s own early work, part-pastiche, part-tribute. However, as Godard is caught up in the protest movement and follows a nihilistic path that sees him lose touch with his audience and reject his wife, the mood darkens and becomes more disturbing. Redoutable manages to be both a brilliant evocation of 1968 France and a thought-provoking, multi-layered portrait of an enigmatic and influential auteur.

Even JLG unconditionals might find deux ou trois choses to enjoy.” Jonathan Romney, Sight & Sound

Dir: Sebastián Lelio | Chile/Germany/Spain/US | 2017 | 104 mins | subtitles

Chilean director Sebastián Lelio follows up his acclaimed 2013 festival hit Gloria with another luminous and deeply involving portrait of an isolated woman, In A Fantastic Woman, he has created an exquisitely compassionate portrait of the everyday obstacles of transgender existence. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Her partner, Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. When he suffers a terrible accident, Marina comes under suspicion. By virtue of her gender identity she is treated like a criminal, with everyone from the doctors and Orlando’s family to the police seeing not a grieving woman, but an aberration.

It may be a timely film, but it is its timelessness, as well as its depths of compassion, that qualify it as a great one.” 5*   The Guardian

Dir: Saul Dibb | UK | 2017 | 107 mins

From director Saul Dibb (Bullet Boy, The Duchess) comes this piercing new adaptation of R.C. Sheriff’s seminal1928 anti-war play. It’s World War 1 and youthful recruit Lieutenant Raleigh has pulled strings to join his sister’s fiancé and childhood hero Captain Stanhope on the front line. But Stanhope is altered beyond recognition by years in the trenches. Reliant on alcohol and his friendship with phlegmatic fellow-officer Osbourne to survive, he is horrified by Raleigh’s arrival into the tension and claustrophobia of the officers’ dugout where they are anticipating a massive German attack. With its timely release in the centenary of the Armistice, this terse and focused version of an enduring classic slams home the pathos, harrowing emotional costs and utter futility of war.

It is a governing sense of restraint that lends the film such an emotional kick, and breathes fresh life into an old classic.” Screen

Empower Yourself

Discover your personal qualities

Would you like to:

  • Learn how to play to your strengths? 
  • Develop insights into yourself and others? 
  • Create strategies to make better life choices? 

Being more aware of your unique and personal qualities is essential if you want to get the most out of yourself, your work and your relationships. 

In this 3-hour workshop you’ll learn a number of useful techniques that you can apply to enhance your relationship with yourself and others. Jess draws on her training in psychology, mindful self-compassion, and the performing arts in this interactive session. She is a Women’s Leadership Coach, and has been helping to boost women’s confidence for over ten years. Jess is regularly quoted in women's magazines, and speaks at wellbeing events across the UK.

We’ll focus on three main things:

1. Understanding your personal strengths (things that truly energise you). Based on well-established personality profiling tools, Jess will help you identify your top key strengths and how to apply these to your personal life and your work.

2. Developing your self-awareness by looking at your core values, desired feelings and your key motivators. You’ll have a better understanding of how to improve your life, your work and your relationships.

3. Creating strategies based on your personal qualities can help you make better life choices for now and in the future.

All these elements together can help you enjoy your life, work and relationships more.

A well-packed, enjoyable and informative morning. Jess is an excellent, engaging and enthusiastic facilitator. The exercises were thought provoking, well structured and encouraged reflection and discussion. I also found it useful to hear other participants thoughts and experiences.” Caroline, Empower Yourself Workshop, Ludlow

Inspired by the rediscovered Derek Evans photographic collection Stories from the Hop Yards brims with archive photos and films alongside newly recorded interviews. A requisite of British beer, with their evocative aroma, hops have been an integral part of county life for centuries. Listen to stories of days past and present from pickers, farmers, traders and brewers. Families would arrive for a working holiday by train, cattle lorry or charabanc. Dinners were cooked over open fires and children picked hops into an old umbrella while their mothers worked at the cribs. 

The film-makers will introduce the screening

Dir: Andrey Zvyagintsev | Russia/France/Belgium/Germany | 2017 | 127 mins | subtitles

Boris and Zhenya are on the verge of divorce but still share an apartment. Preoccupied with their own affairs, they’re oblivious of the effect their terrible rows are having on their shy, lonely 12-year-old son Alyosha. Then one day they discover that the boy has disappeared, and the onus is on them to co-operate in order to find him. Faced with apathetic officials, and engrossed by their own romantic, erotic, professional and hedonistic desires, the parents are clearly not equipped to deal with this calamity. Working with his regular writing partner Oleg Negin, Zvyagintsev (LeviathanElenaThe Banishment) expertly balances taut suspense, vivid characterisation and resonant imagery to paint a quietly horrific picture of life in contemporary Russia.

Eight years before King Kong (1933), Willis O’Brien brought his masterful skills at stop motion animation to the big screen, paving the way for such legends as Ray Harryhausen and Aardman Animations in this adaptation of the Arthur Conan Doyle’s thrilling adventure classic.  Professor Challenger and a crew of curious explorers embark on an expedition in search of a mythical, prehistoric plateau in South America. Very soon, the ‘lost world’ of the jungle begins to reveal terrifying secrets that bring chaos to the streets of Edwardian London in a fantastic cinematic conclusion. For more than 80 years, only abridged editions of The Lost World remained in existence… until now! South West Silents are thrilled to present this visually stunning 2K restoration by Lobster Films, Paris, incorporating original elements from archives and collections around the world.

With score by composer Robert Israel, performed by a full orchestra in 2016.

Dir: Saul Dibb | UK | 2017 | 107 mins

From director Saul Dibb (Bullet Boy, The Duchess) comes this piercing new adaptation of R.C. Sheriff’s seminal1928 anti-war play. It’s World War 1 and youthful recruit Lieutenant Raleigh has pulled strings to join his sister’s fiancé and childhood hero Captain Stanhope on the front line. But Stanhope is altered beyond recognition by years in the trenches. Reliant on alcohol and his friendship with phlegmatic fellow-officer Osbourne to survive, he is horrified by Raleigh’s arrival into the tension and claustrophobia of the officers’ dugout where they are anticipating a massive German attack. With its timely release in the centenary of the Armistice, this terse and focused version of an enduring classic slams home the pathos, harrowing emotional costs and utter futility of war.

It is a governing sense of restraint that lends the film such an emotional kick, and breathes fresh life into an old classic.” Screen

Intriguing, controversial and misunderstood, Winnie Mandela’s rise and seeming fall from grace bear the hallmarks of epic tragedy. Winnie fought the South African liberation movement against apartheid tooth and nail, far from the isolation of the prison cell where her husband Nelson Mandela served 27 long years. While Nelson became the movement’s hero, Winnie’s struggle to bring down the regime from the front line was met with condemnation from the global press. Featuring unseen archival footage and interviews with Winnie herself, Pascale Lamche’s seminal documentary depicts a complex figure who came to symbolise the oppression of her people, while asking the broader question of why history habitually silences strong female leaders.

Carmen

Carmen

Carmen is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in the entire art form – numbers such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song have permeated the popular consciousness as little else has. The opera’s heady combination of passion, sensuality and violence initially proved too much for the stage, and it was a critical failure on its 1875 premiere. Bizet died shortly after, and never learned of the spectacular success his Carmen would achieve: the opera has been performed more than five hundred times at Covent Garden alone.

This ever-popular opera is given a fresh point of view in Barrie Kosky’s highly physical production, originally created for Frankfurt Opera. The Australian director is one of the world’s most sought-after opera directors, whose Royal Opera debut with Shostakovich’s The Nose in 2016 was greeted with delight. For Carmen he has devised a far-from-traditional version, incorporating music written by Bizet for the score but not usually heard, and giving a new voice to the opera’s endlessly fascinating central character

The Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, whose children meet and fall in love. They have to hide their love from the world because they know that their parents will not allow them to be together. There are obstacles on the way, like Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, and Romeo's friend Mercutio, and many fights. But although it is set in modern times, it is still the same timeless story of the "star crossed lovers".

Semiramide

Against the backdrop of the Hanging Gardens, Semiramide, Queen of Babylon, defies bad omens and supernatural threats in her quest to find a worthy successor to her late husband. But she harbours more than one dark secret, and whoever gains the throne may find that he has lost more than he has won. Based on a story by Voltaire, this rarely performed tragic opera reveals The Barber of Seville composer Giaochino Rossini in a whole new light. The title role—composed for Rossini’s wife, Isabella Colbran—features some of the most demanding vocal music he ever wrote. Angela Meade takes on the challenging vocal fireworks in this revival of a production last seen at the Met 25 years ago.

Oscar Wilde Season Landscape Image.jpg

A new production of Oscar Wilde’s social comedy, Lady Windermere’s Fan, directed by award-winning writer, actor and director Kathy Burke, will be broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. This is the second play from the Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright being staged by Classic Spring, a new theatre company led by Dominic Dromgoole, former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe.

The day of Lady Windermere’s birthday party, and all is perfectly in order. Until her friend Lord Darlington plants a seed of suspicion. Is her husband having an affair? And will the other woman really attend the party? First performed in 1892, Lady Windermere’s Fan explores the ambiguity of upper class morality and the fragile position of women in society in the late Victorian era in one of Wilde’s most popular and witty plays.

Bernstein Centenary

Bernstein Centenary

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 dance ability 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.

Goaded by their cynical friend Don Alfonso, soldiers Ferrando and Guglielmo decide to test their fiancées’ fidelity. Pretending to leave with their regiment, they return in disguise and pay court to each other’s lover. Will the young women succumb to the charms of these two handsome ‘foreigners’?

A co-production with English National Opera, this clever vision of the battle of the sexes is set in a carnivalesque environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island. The cast features Amanda Majeski and Serena Malfi as the sisters put to the test, with Broadway star Kelli O’Hara as their feisty maid, Ben Bliss and Adam Plachetka as their fiancés, and Christopher Maltman as Don Alfonso. David Robertson conducts Mozart’s delightful score.
