Leave No Trace (PG)

film-friday-banner.png

Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie)live a perfect but mysterious existence in Forest Park, a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon rarely making contact with the world. But when a small mistake tips them off to authorities, they are sent on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a place to call their own.

Leave No Trace takes an effectively low-key ap- proach to a potentially sensationalistic story and further benefits from brilliant work by Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie.

Directed by Debra Granik from a script adapted by Granik and Anne Rosellini, Leave No Trace takes an effectively low-key approach to a poten- tially sensationalistic story.

“It’s a pitch-perfect performance around which Granik builds her flawless, deeply affecting film.”

NATALIA MAKAROVA’S PRODUCTION OF THIS 19TH-CENTURY CLASSIC BALLET BRINGS AN EXOTIC WORLD OF TEMPLE DANCERS AND NOBLE WARRIORS TO LIFE.

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 Rider

film-friday-banner.png

A Lyrical Portrait of Life After the Rodeo, The Rider is primarily concerned with the body and brain of Brady (Brady Jandreau) a rising rodeo champ whose career is cut short by a major head injury. 

Brady Blackburn, a rodeo rider with some renown, learned everything he knows about horses and riding from his parents, Wayne and the now deceased Mari Blackburn. Brady is recovering from a fall off a horse in a rodeo, the most serious of the injuries being a skull fracture which required a metal plate being inserted into his head. Brady is determined to get back up onto the literal and proverbial horse as quickly as possible as being a cowboy is all he knows. But deep in his heart he knows that returning to the rodeo may have too many risks.  

In telling the story of a disappearing slice of America, Director Chloé Zhao has created a portrait of resilience, and the bonds that last even after the rodeo’s over.

Ventoux

Ventoux

Ventoux is a restaging of the dramatic battle between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in the Tour de France 2000 on Mont Ventoux.  Once regarded as the greatest race in the history of cycling, we now know that both Armstrong and Pantani doped during their careers. At the time both were champions in their own right - Pantani winning the Tour de France in 1998, and Armstrong winning in 1999.

VENTOUX-web.jpg

In 2000 they went head to head on Mont Ventoux. They crossed the line together but their careers spiralled in wildly opposite directions. Armstrong won seven consecutive Tour de France titles; Pantani died of a cocaine overdose alone in a hotel room. Armstrong denied, lied and cheated where Pantani was caught. 

Ventoux restages this race, knowing everything that we now know in 2015. 

With a pair of road bikes, stunning footage of Mont Ventoux and actual race commentary, 2Magpies bring the excitement of the Tour de France to the theatre.

The Apparition (12A)

film-friday-banner.png

Jacques (Vincent Lindon) is a journalist at a large regional newspaper in France. His reputation as an impartial and talented investigator attracts the attention of the Vatican who recruits him for a special task; taking part of a committee to investigate the veracity of a saintly apparition in a small French village - a true canonical investigation. Upon his arrival, he meets the young and sensitive Anna who claims to have personally witnessed the apparition of the Virgin Mary. 

Confronted with opposing views from clergy members and skeptics in the group, Jacques gradually uncovers the hidden motivations and pressures at work and sees his beliefs system profoundly shaken.

Inspired by the true story of Saint Bernadette of Lourdes, A young girl who, at the age of 14, had all together 18 apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the late 1850s, Xavier Giannoli's film moves slowly but with considerable power as it explores faith, doubt, mass hysteria and the desperate human need for supernatural reassurance.

A Spanish Hour by Mid Wales Opera

web-spanish-hour-poster.jpg

Autumn 2018 sees MWO back on the road with the company’s second SmallStages tour, Ravel’s exhilarating one-act bedroom farce, A Spanish Hour (L’heure espagnole). We’re returning to some favourite spots from our tour of Walton’s The Bear in 2017, as well as a host of new places we’re longing to explore.  

First performed in Paris in 1911, L’heure espagnole is set in a clock shop in Toledo, central Spain. It follows the fortunes of Torquemada, the hardworking clockmaker, as, during the course of one hot afternoon, his young wife Concepción negotiates her way through her collection of ridiculous lovers. Ravel’s music is bursting with hummable melodies, lively habanera dances and other Spanish folk song elements to get audiences buzzing. 

This is opera for everyone - featuring an outstanding cast of five young singers as well as four brilliant musicians, performing a new English translation by our Artistic Director Richard Studer and a new arrangement of Ravel’s exotic score created by our Music Director Jonathan Lyness.

This live event is held at St.Laurence's Church and has reserved seating.

When a luxury wedding celebration in a 17th-century French palace gets terribly out of control, waiters, entertainers and photographers witness a monstrosity. But wedding planner Max (Jean-Pierre Bacri), whose motto is "Always adapt!" is the persistent kind and will do everything to save the situation. Will he manage? That is the question.

This uproarious comedy of errors wonderfully distills the logistical absurdity of such formally traditional celebrations with biting satire, broad pratfalls, and expertly rendered caricature.

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance). 

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

A Sunday In Hell - Wheel2Reel Film with Q&A

sunday in hell web poster.jpg

The film follows the French Paris-Roubaix spring classic, notorious for the hellish paves or cobbled roads of the north "which are no longer used for civilised traffic but only for transporting cattle - and for cycle races". We are there from the dawn preparations and rituals on the outskirts of Paris and through the rigours of the race with special focus on a number of prominent cyclists to the final outcome on the Roubaix cycle track - followed by the filthy riders taking their showers. 

Gunner Møller Pedersen's music and a very lively sound picture serve the drama and members of the chorus of the Royal Danish Opera use the words "Paris - Roubaix - L'enfer du nord" to add a patina of the sublime.

The images of the riders crossing the misshapen cobble sin enormous clouds of dust deserves emphasis as one of the most powerful images ever captured from the world of cycling.

With LIVE Q&A from William Fotheringham.  
The renowned Cycling journalist will be discussing his recent book Sunday in Hell: Behind the Lens of the Greatest Cycling Film of All Time.

This event is in Oscars with limited unreserved seating, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Blackkklansman (15)

film-friday-banner.png

Visionary filmmaker  Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman is a broad satirical comedy of the 1970’s American race war and a parable of passing for black and passing for white.  Based on the true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. 

The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. 

Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award (R) winning Get Out, BlacKkKlansman uses history to offer bitingly trenchant commentary on current events -- and brings out some of Spike Lee's hardest-hitting work in decades along the way.

For the first time at the Met, soprano Anna Netrebko sings the role of Adriana Lecouvreur, the eighteenth-century actress whose real-life intrigues inspired Cilea’s tragic opera.

Adriana is adored by many but loves only Maurizio, sung by tenor Piotr Beczała, who adores her in return. Maurizio desperately tries to extricate himself from his previous lover, the Princess of Bouillon— mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili.

When the princess discovers that Adriana is her rival, she takes desperate measures of her own. In this new production directed by Sir David McVicar, the action is partially set in a working replica of a baroque theatre. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the riveting score.

Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she's caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens "struggling with same-sex attraction." 

At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious "de-gaying" methods, and earnest Christian rock songs-but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. 

Winning the grand jury price at Sundance Film Festival, The Miseducation of Cameron Post tells its timely coming-of-age story with wit, compassion, and an affecting overall generosity of spirit.

The Winter’s Tale is Shakespeare’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable, illustrating how uncontrollable emotions can range across gender, country, class and age. Its universe is full of monsters, gods and natural disasters with a colossal sweep that takes audiences from the stifling atmosphere of the Sicilian court to the unbuttoned joy of a Bohemian festival.

Staged at the beautiful and iconic Globe Theatre in London, this new production is directed by Blanche McIntyre and stars Will Keen (The Crown, Wolf Hall) as Leontes, Priyanga Burford (W1A, Marcella) as Hermione and Annette Badland (EastEnders, Father Brown) as Old Shepherd. A reconstruction of an open-air Elizabethan playhouse on the bank of the River Thames, the Globe Theatre has become a significant part of the national and international theatre landscape, celebrating Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world.

Cold War (15)

film-friday-banner.png

Pawel Pawlikowski follows his Oscar-winning Ida with the stunning Cold War, an epic romance set against the backdrop of Europe after World War II. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, it spans decades and nations to tell a love story that is as tragic as it is moving, and as transportive as it is honest.

In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and Zula (Joanna Kulig) fall deeply, obses- sively and destructively in love. As performing mu- sicians forced to play into the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the creative freedom of the West. But one day, as they spot their chance to make a break for Paris, both make a split decision that will mark their lives forever. As the years march on in the wake of that moment, Wiktor and Zula watch the world changing around them, always struggling to find their moment in time.

Winner of the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival 2018, Pawlikowski melds the per- sonal with the political to exquisite effect. Set to
a soundtrack that takes you from the rustic folk songs of rural Poland to the sultry jazz of a Paris basement bar, it’s a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent – and a heartbreaking portrait of ill-fated love.

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 fivestar 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.

Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned a co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire into 2018, along with their own stand-alone tour, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule.

On a devastated Earth overrun by lethal and ever-hearing predators of a possible extrater- restrial origin, the Abbotts struggle to survive in a desolate New York City in a new era of utter silence. As this new type of invader is attracted to noise, even the slightest of sounds can be deadly; however, it’s already been twelve months since the powerful monsters’ first sightings, and this resilient family still stands strong. To learn the rules of survival in this muted dystopia is essential; nevertheless, an otherwise joyous event is threatening an already frail stability. Now, more than ever, don’t make a sound.

An American Werewolf in London (15)

Beginning with two American hikers losing their way on the Yorkshire moors, An American Werewolf in London provides one of horror cinema’s most perfect balances of laughs and scares.

Two American college students David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne), on a walking tour of Britain are attacked by a werewolf that none of the locals will admit exists. David survives with a bite, but Jack is brutally killed.  As David heals in the hospital, he’s plagued by violent nightmares of his mutilated friend, who warns David that he is becoming a werewolf.

When David discovers the horrible truth, he contemplates committing suicide before the next full moon causes him to transform from man to murderous beast.  Director John Landis’ film is an excellent, seamless melding of comedy and horror, with a surprising amount of brutality and one of the most wonderfully dark, abrupt conclusions ever made and the man-to-wolf transformation scene is still a marvel.

He reveals to Dalila the secret of his strength, and immediately, his fate is sealed. Imprisoned, blinded, and humiliated, how can Samson atone for his folly? Soprano Elīna Garanča and tenor Roberto Alagna sing the title roles, with Sir Mark Elder conducting.

A personal look at the extraordinary life, career and artistry of Alexander McQueen.
Through exclusive interviews with his closest friends and family, recovered archives, exquisite visuals and music, McQueen is an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary.

The late British genius and award-winning designer Alexander McQueen was renowned for pushing the boundaries of fashion. Originally trained on Savile Row before working with the famous theatrical costumiers Angels and Bermans, it is no wonder he formed a signature style of mixing razor-sharp tailoring with melodramatic silhouettes and directional cuts.
Directed by Ian Bonhote and co-directed / written by Peter Ettedgui, McQueen offers an intimate, well-sourced, and overall moving look at a young life and brilliant career that were tragically cut short.

Mayerling - Ballet in Three Acts (ROH)

webpage-poster.jpg

DANGEROUS DESIRES, FAMILY SECRETS AND POLITICAL INTRIGUES TWIST THROUGH EVERY MOMENT OF DARING CHOREOGRAPHY IN KENNETH MACMILLAN’S BALLET INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS.

CHOREOGRAPHY KENNETH MACMILLAN MUSIC FRANZ LISZT ARRANGED AND ORCHESTRATED BY JOHN LANCHBERY

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.

Vertigo (PG)

film-friday-banner.png

Dismissed when first released yet later heralded as one of director Alfred Hitchcock’s  finest  films this adaptation of the French novel D’entre Les Morts weaves an intricate web of obsession and deceit.

James Stewart plays ex-cop Scottie, invalided out of the police due to vertigo brought on by a traumatic and shaming calamity during a roof top chase. He is hired by old schoolfriend Gavin Elster (Tom Helmore) for a strange job: to shadow his beautiful and enigmatic wife Madeline (Kim Novak) whose behaviour is worrying him. This bizarre situation unlocks lonely Scottie’s gallantry and romanticism and he falls passionately in love with this mysterious, troubled woman with her quiet, wondering voice and the manner of a sleepwalker.

Supported by Bernard Herrmann’s hypnotic score and the grand cityscapes of San Francisco, Vertigo takes the audiences through twists and turns, challenging their preconceptions about the characters and events.

60 years a er it’s original release, Vertigo is an unpredictable scary thriller that doubles as a mournful meditation on love, loss, and human comfort.

“Hitchcock’s masterpiece, rereleased a er 60 years, combines his  air for psychological shocks with a genius for dapper stylishness.”

King Lear (NTLive)

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

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.

Under the Tree (15)

film-friday-banner.png

When Baldvin (Sigurður Sigurjónsson) and Inga’s (Edda Björgvinsdóttir) next-door neighbours complain that a tree in the couple’s backyard casts a shadow over their sun deck, what starts off as a typical spat between suburbanites soon spirals violently and unexpectedly out of control.

As the dispute with the neighbours intensifies, property is damaged, pets mysteriously go missing, security cameras are being installed and there is a rumor that the neighbour was seen with a chainsaw.

Director Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson leads viewers into decidedly bleak territory, which is leavened by sly intelligence and a surprising sense of humor.

“Sigurdsson has crafted an exhilaratingly sly dark comedy about ordinary suburbanite folk going from unglued to unhinged to ultimately undone.”
– Bruce DeMara

Superstar soprano Anna Netrebko makes her Met role debut as Aida in this thirtieth-anniversary revival of Sonja Frisell’s production.

Verdi’s drama is set in Ancient Egypt, where the Ethiopian Aida lives a life of slavery. She and the Egyptian warrior Radamès, sung by tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko, have fallen in love, although the princess Amneris—mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili—is an implacable rival for Radamès’s affections.

Then, when Radamès goes into battle, he unwittingly captures Aida’s father as a prisoner of war. As Aida and Radamès face impossible choices between patriotism, passion, and paternal bonds, the stage is set for tragedy.

With heart-stopping music and spectacular set pieces, including the famous Triumphal March, Verdi’s towering masterpiece opens the new Live in HD season with a bang.
