Boris Godunov – Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season 2015/16

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky’s historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The originality of the composer’s vision of Pushkin’s play about Tsar Boris Godunov – who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 – was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated in the second version of the opera, in which Boris finally had its premiere in 1874. Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions. Keenly awaited will be Bryn Terfel’s assumption of the title role – one of the most complex characters in opera – while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.

This performance is the part of 2015/16 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season! Click here for more information!

UPDATE – THIS CONTENT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Marcello is a journalist who writes for the society pages, covering events and personalities well-known in Via Veneto circles.

But some time later he discovers that all was not what is seemed with his friend and once again throws himself into superficial society life. When he encounters a young woman by chance, it seems that she wants to tell him something, but try as he might, he fails to hear.

Boris Godounov LIVE – ONP

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

“Living power is unbearable for the people. They can love only the dead.” – Boris, Boris Godounov, Alexandre Pushkin

In 1824, when Pushkin turned to Boris Godounov for his first historical drama, he knew well the colossus he was tackling. Armed with his reading of Shakespeare, Pushkin retold the epic history of the dazzling reign of the Tzar of Russia (1598-1605). Indeed, elements of Macbeth appear throughout this political fable, in which an imposter with ambitions for the throne haunts Boris, pretending to return as the child that Boris had once killed in order to seize power. Adapting this epic poem, Mussorgsky composed a meditation on the solitude of power, a populist drama in which the real protagonist is the Russian people with its burden of eternal suffering.

Ivo Van Hove is no stranger to grand political frescos, having previously staged Tragédies Romaines and Kings of War, both based on plays by Shakespeare. This is his first production for the Paris Opera.

The production stars Ildar Abdrazakov, “one of the most sought-after young basses in the operatic world” (Vanity Fair) and “one of the most exciting Russian singers to emerge on the international scene in the past decade” (Opera News).

La Fille de Neige (Snegurochka) – ONP

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Snegurochka was born in times of old in Tsar Berendey’s mythical kingdom, the fruit of the union between Spring
the Beauty and Grandfather Frost. Protected by her parents from the jealousy of the Sun god Yarilo who has vowed to warm her heart when she gets older and falls in love, Snegurochka the snow maiden is entrusted to the wood sprite… Particularly attached to the opera which he himself considered to be a work of maturity, Rimsky‑Korsakov would write ten years after its creation that: “anyone who fails to love The Snow Maiden understands nothing of my works nor of myself”.

A masterpiece of popular Slavic literature, The Snow Maiden brings to the stage a magical fantasy enriched by the
rigours of the weather. Aida Garifullina sings the role of Snegurochka whilst the production and musical direction
have been left in the capable hands of two other Russian artists: the young conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov and director Dmitri Tcherniakov.

Pique Dame (The Queen of Spades) – Dutch National Opera

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

As one of the highlights of the Holland Festival, renowned director Stefan Herheim staged Tchaikovsky’s much-loved opera about a young man who, for the prospect of earthly wealth, gambles away his chance for love and happiness.

The protagonist Hermann stakes everything on gambling, in the belief that there has to be a secret formula that will prevent him from losing at cards. He wants to draw the secret from his girlfriend Lisa’s grandmother, the old Countess: How is it that she is such a successful gambler? Herman confronts her and forces her to reveal her secret, menacing her with a revolver. The Countess dies from the shock. It is her ghost that later appears before the young officer and gives away the fatal sequence of cards: three, seven, ace. Having lost everything, Hermann commits suicide, thus becoming the third victim of his own compulsive gambling behavior – after the old Countess, who was supposed to know the secret, and Lisa, who was in love with him. The score of Pique Dame was written by Tchaikovsky within only 44 days, in a period of turmoil about himself and his homosexuality. Herheim, whose stagings are famous for their multi-layered levels of interpretation, attempts to reflect on the composer’s hidden love for men.

Former Music Director Mariss Jansons returns to Amsterdam to conduct Pique Dame at the Dutch National Opera with “his” Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He encounters a noteworthy cast, including star tenor Misha Didyk, a sought after interpreter of the Russian repertoire, who is making his Amsterdam debut in the role of Herman. The critics agree about the production’s quality: “A Pique Dame of extraordinary musical and scenic power” (Avant-Scène Opéra), which it is “absolutely worth seeing!” (Die Welt).

Khovanshchina – Munich

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

One of the great talents of Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881) was his unique ability to transpose words, psychological states and even physical movements into music. Although he left his opera “Khovanshchina” (The Khovansky Affair) incomplete and unorchestrated, the sheer theatricality of its musical text reveals the presence of a work that begs for a stage production. The first completion and orchestration was made by Mussorgsky’s contemporary Rimsky-Korsakov, but the more slender, powerful, raw orchestration made by Dmitri Shostakovich in 1960 is the one preferred today, and the version chosen by Kent Nagano for the Munich production recorded here.

The plot is a darkly shimmering panorama of ruthless power plays, intrigues and bloodshed in late 17th-century Russia. A nation torn by inner strife, with various factions struggling for power at court: the followers of Prince Ivan Khovansky, the leader of the Streltsys (musketeers), and those of Prince Golitsin, faithful to the tsar. Add to this the influence of various religious groups, and the action comes frighteningly close to mirroring the present-day situation in more than one country. With his stripped-down sets and historicizing costumes, director Dmitri Tcherniakov, one of the new voices of contemporary Russian theater, throws a bridge to the political present. The historical pessimism of the opera, says Tcherniakov, “is legitimated by Russian history and Russian life. Basically, nothing has changed.”

Kent Nagano superbly masters the challenges presented by this score, shapes the dynamics with subtle intensity, and casts the score in a mellow glow. As Marfa, the spurned lover of Ivan Khovansky’s son Andrey, Doris Soffel unfolds such a rich palette of sonorities, from the pathos of the lower ranges to shaded discant heights, that “one is tempted to speak of a Russian mezzo.” (Eleonore Büning, F.A.Z.)  Anatoly Kotscherga portrays the religious leader Dosifey with fervor and bluster, Klaus Florian Vogt dazzles heroically as Andrey, John Daszak is a technically flawless Golitsin, and bass-baritone Paata Burchuladze gives a charismatic, forceful account of Prince Ivan Khovansky. The final chorus, which Mussorgsky did not compose, is played in the orchestrally transparent version of Igor Stravinsky – the third great Russian composer who contributed to making “Khovantchina” a gripping stage work for all times.

Eugene Onegin – Salzburg Festival

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Tchaikovsky  is  best  known  for  his  symphonic   scores   and   ballets   such   as   the   “Nutcracker,“   “Swan   Lake”   and   “Sleeping  Beauty.“  Yet  his  operas  also  occupy  a  place  of  honor  in  his  oeuvre,  and  two  of  them,  “Eugene  Onegin”  and  “The  Queen  of  Spades,” both based on novels by Pushkin, are among his very finest works.

The plot of “Onegin” is quickly told: on a Russian country  estate,  awkward,  inexperienced  young  Tatyana  is  seized  by  a  sudden  passion  for  the handsome, blasé new neighbor Eugene Onegin.  She  writes  him  a  love  letter,  but  he  makes  it  clear  to  her  that  he  is  not  interested.  Later,  Tatyana‘s  sister  flirts  with
Onegin, her fiancé challenges him to a duel and is killed by Onegin. Years later, Onegin returns, finds that Tatyana has married an aged  prince,  and  tries  to  win  her  back  but  fails.

The  true  hero  of  the  opera  is  Tatyana,   a   multi-layered,   conflicted,   driven,   doubt-ridden  heroine.  As  portrayed  by  the  dazzling  Russian  soprano  Anna  Samuil,  this  Tatyana “is ready to start a revolution.” (Julia Spinola, F.A.Z.) Since her 2003 debut in the West, and her appearance as Musetta (“La Bohème”) at the Met alongside Anna Netrebko, Anna Samuil – a protegée of Daniel Barenboim – has been acclaimed as a vibrant new voice on  the  operatic  stage.  Daniel  Barenboim  and  the  Vienna  Philharmonic  accompany  these  “scenes of a marriage that could have been” with beguilingly dark sonorities that allow for brilliant flashes of light from the winds and waves of passionate lyricism in the third act.

Recorded  at  the  Salzburg  Festival,  this  production  of  Tchaikovsky’s  Eugene  Onegin  features an excellent, young cast headed by Peter Mattei as the titular playboy, and the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by maestro Daniel Barenboim. This intimate production mines the depths of expression and charisma inherent in the drama.

Iolanta & The Nutcraker – ONP

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

A special production of two works by Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, Iolanta and Casse-Noisette, presented as a double bill as they were for their original première in 1892, will bring together all the artistic forces of the Paris Opera (Orchestra, Chorus and Ballet) at the Palais Garnier. In collaboration with stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov and conductor Alain Altinoglu, 5 choreographers will each work on a specific passage of the ballet: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Edouard Lock, Benjamin Millepied, Arthur Pita and Liam Scarlett.

The role of Iolanta will be sung by Sonya Yoncheva and the Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs and Corps de Ballet will perform Casse-Noisette. The mysterious, unwavering chant of the English horn, punctuated by notes from the bassoon and the clarinet, follows its chromatic descent over twenty bars as if plunging into an unknown world. A world where Iolanta has lived in seclusion since her birth. She is unwittingly blind, since no one has the right to reveal the fact to her. This simple tale of collective denial at the court of Provence as narrated by the Danish writer Henrik Hertz in his play King René’s Daughter, was discovered by Tchaikovsky in 1883. The Paris Opera is reviving the original diptych. Alain Altinoglu conducts and Dimitri Tcherniakov songs this production that symbolises the link between opera and ballet.

Black Sabbath – The End of the End 2017

 

(UPDATE) – This content is no longer available.

The End of The End chronicles the final tour from the band who forged the sound of metal – Black Sabbath. On 4th February, 2017, the band took to the stage in Birmingham, the city where it all began, to play the 81st and final gig of The End tour – bringing down the curtain on a career that spanned almost half a century. The sold out show marked the culmination of a tour that had seen them play to well over a million fans in arenas across the globe. Since their beginnings in 1968, they created a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, going on to influence bands all over the world – an influence which is still felt to this day.

The End of The End is the story of that final, emotionally-charged concert. Fans are taken into the heart of the action, up close and personal with the band on stage as they perform genre-defining hits, from Iron Man to Paranoid to War Pigs, amongst others. Sabbath also took the opportunity to spend some time in the studio, delivering a unique performance of some of their favourite songs. This film gives fans an intimate glimpse into the band’s relationships and their banter with each other, with both individual and group recollections from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler. The band’s loyal following spans generations and this is the opportunity for fans, young and old, to come together and see the boys from Birmingham doing what they do best, almost 50 years after they started. This is the final word from the greatest metal band of all time.

Available until 31 March 2018, Pannonia Entertainment distributes this exclusive concert movie to cinemas across Hungary and Romania.

Gemenc – The Wild Danube (TV Rights)

 

UPDATE: this content is no longer available

documentary, Hungary, 2017 (6)
directed by Frigyes Olma

Running time: 60 Min

The landscape of Gemenc, the largest floodplain woods of Central Europe, is living and developing together with its waters. The river Danube defines the life of the drainage area’s flora and fauna, either by protecting or threatening, building or vanishing the scenery. The forest and the river provide an outstanding habitat for their residents, families of deers, boars, eagles, jackals, beavers, cranes and kingfishers of the Gemenc floodplain woods, including one of the area’s greatest population of the protected black storks. This stunning nature documentary – released with the support of WWF Hungary – gives us insight into their lives. The film is a result of five years’ stringent and tenacious work: special disguised wildlife monitoring cameras, underwater or drone cameras were used to capture the wildlife of the drainage area including precious and previously unseen images of black storks nesting and raising up their squealers, or dramatic recordings of the big flood of the Danube in 2013. Besides the area’s wildlife, the documentary puts great emphasis on the presentation of the floodplain woods’ unique atmosphere as well, by capturing dawning landscapes and by numerous mid-air shots made with drones, while playing the evergreen melodies of Strauss, Vivaldi, Verdi, Puccini, Mahler and Bartók in the background.

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii

 

UPDATE – THIS CONTENT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman amphitheatre, and, for two nights only, the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.

‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances from an all-star band. The show includes songs from throughout David’s career, as well as many Pink Floyd classics, including ‘One Of These Days’, the only song that was also performed at the band’s 1971 show. Both concerts also saw very special performances of ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’ from ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, which David rarely plays as a solo artist. This concert performance film includes highlights from both shows, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder. ‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ shows an artist at the top of his artistic game, performing incredible material with his world-class band, in a unique setting, on one very special occasion.

Available for one night only on Wed 13th September, Pannonia Entertainment distributes this unique 125 minutes long 2K/4K concert movie to cinemas across Hungary and Romania.

Manon by Massenet – Royal Opera House 2017-18

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

LIVE: Thursday 3 May 2018 [8.15pm CET]
ENCORE: Sunday 6 May 2018 [3pm CET]

Approximate running time: 2 hours 35 minutes, including two intervals

Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet, set to music by Massenet.

Manon’s brother Lescaut is o ering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love. They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. o ers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she can’t resist. With the Lescauts’ encouragement Des Grieux cheats at cards in an attempt to win Monsieur G.M.’s fortune. They are caught. Manon is
arrested as a prostitute and deported to New Orleans, followed by Des Grieux. On the run, Manon dies from exhaustion.
Kenneth MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. The premiere was given on 7 March 1974, with the lead roles danced by Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet’s repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.
MacMillan found new sympathy with the capricious Manon and her struggle to escape poverty. Designs by his regular collaborator Nicholas Georgiadis reflect this, depicting a world of lavish splendour polluted by miserable destitution. MacMillan’s spectacular ensemble scenes for the whole Company create vivid, complex portraits of the distinct societies of Paris and New Orleans. But it is Manon and Des Grieux’s impassioned pas de deux – recalling the intensity of MacMillan’s earlier Romeo and Juliet – that drive this tragic story, and make Manon one of MacMillan’s most powerful dramas.

The Royal Ballet celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with an all-Bernstein programme from Wayne McGregor, Liam Scarlett and Christopher Wheeldon.

Leonard Bernstein was one of the fi rst 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 danceability of Bernstein’s music.
The programme includes two world premieres by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, marking each artist’s fi rst 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.

Bizet’s classic French opera stars Anna Goryachova in Barrie Kosky’s intense production.

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 fi ve 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 farfrom-
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.

Shakespeare’s tale of love and loss becomes compelling dance drama in Christopher Wheeldon’s ballet adaptation, with music by Joby Talbot.

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.

Drama, passion and fabulous music – Puccini’s operatic thriller is one of the great opera experiences. Dan Ettinger conducts a star cast led by Adrianne Pieczonka, Joseph Calleja and Gerald Finley.

Tosca is one of the great evenings of opera, and from its strident opening chords conjures up a world of political instability and menace.
Jonathan Kent’s production for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias, including ‘Vissi d’arte’ and ‘E lucevan le stelle’. Giacomo Puccini’s dramatic work was a hit with audiences on its 1900 premiere and it remains one of the most performed of all operas – with its gripping plot and glorious music, it’s easy to see why.
A candle-lit church, Scarpia’s gloomy study with its hidden torture chamber and the false optimism of a Roman dawn: this handsome production throws into relief the ruthlessly taut drama, as the tension is wound up towards a fateful conclusion. Puccini’s meticulously researched score is infused with the same authentic detail, from distant cannon fi re during the Act I Te Deum to tolling church bells and the sounds of a fi ring squad.

David McVicar’s acclaimed production of Verdi’s potent and tragic opera is conducted by Alexander Joel, with an excellent cast led by Dimitri Platanias, Lucy Crowe and Michael Fabiano.

The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Verdi’s potent tragedy in David McVicar’s production for The Royal Opera.
Rigoletto, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter. When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect…
David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances. The opera’s many musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite, plangent duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the gorgeous Act III quartet that beautifully weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion.
Giuseppe Verdi wrote in 1855 that Rigoletto was his ‘best opera’. He had had to overcome state censorship to stage it – the censors objected to its depiction of an immoral ruler – but he was vindicated by the premiere’s huge success in 1851. Rigoletto was performed 250 times in the next 10 years and has remained one of the most popular of all operas.

A young girl’s enchanted present leads her on a wonderful Christmas adventure in this beautiful classical ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score.

The young Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favourite present – a Nutcracker doll. But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her o on a magical adventure. After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming – but doesn’t she recognize Drosselmeyer’s nephew?
Peter Wright’s nigh-on defi nitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowfl akes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.
Loosely based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the ballet opens with a lively Christmas party, its Victorian setting captured in opulent detail by Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs. Wright’s choreography ingeniously incorporates surviving fragments of the ballet’s original material, including the sublime pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince. But in emphasizing the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, the production also gains a touching subtext of fi rst love.

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole in Christopher Wheeldon’s exuberant ballet, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s much-loved book.

At a garden party on a sunny afternoon, Alice is surprised to see her parents’ friend Lewis Carroll transform into a white rabbit. When she follows him down a rabbit hole events become curiouser and curiouser… As Alice journeys through Wonderland, she encounters countless strange creatures. She’s swept o her feet by the charming Knave of Hearts, who’s on the run for stealing the tarts. Confusion piles upon confusion. Then Alice wakes with a start. Was it all a daydream?
Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography. Joby Talbot’s score combines contemporary soundworlds with sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob Crowley’s wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs draw on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real.
Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary and instantly recognizable characters, from the highly strung Queen of Hearts – who performs a hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty’s famous Rose Adage – to a playingcard corps de ballet, a sinuous caterpillar and a tap-dancing Mad Hatter. But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a nightmarish kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here in vivid detail. The delicious result shows The Royal Ballet at its best, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment.

Puccini’s passionate opera is conducted by Antonio Pappano and stars a superb young cast including Nicole Car, Michael Fabiano and Mariusz Kwiecien, in a new production by Richard Jones.

When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill.
Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov, Il trittico) directs a new production of Puccini’s La bohème. Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the bohemian fringes of Paris. Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing’s spectacular setting.
Puccini’s romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world, making La bohème one of the best-loved of all operas.

Julia Jones conducts David McVicar’s spell-binding production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute with a wonderful cast including Roderick Williams as Papageno.

Mozart’s glorious opera The Magic Flute is brought enchantingly to life in David McVicar’s production with beautiful sets by John Macfarlane.
Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his quest, accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno – but all is not as it seems…
David McVicar’s classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart’s work. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, fl ying machines and dazzlingly starry skies. The setting provides a wonderful backdrop for Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score, from the Queen of the Night’s coloratura fi reworks to Tamino and Pamina’s lyrical love duets and Papageno’s hearty, folksong-like arias.
As well as being a comedy The Magic Flute is an expression of Mozart’s profound spiritual beliefs: Enlightenment concerns with the search for wisdom and virtue are at the heart of this enchanting tale. The Magic Flute was an instant success with audiences and Mozart’s supposed rival Salieri described it as an ‘operone’ – a great opera.

Puccini: La Bohème LIVE from Taormina

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Recorded LIVE from the Taormina Opera Festival
July 5, 2017 at 8:30pm

One of opera’s most popular and enduring classics, Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème memorializes the ardent passions of young Bohemian artists struggling to love, create and survive in mid-19th century Paris.

Living together in a small Parisian garret, Rodolfo writes, Marcello paints, Schaunard composes and Colline philosophizes. When Rodolfo meets the delicate Mimì, he is immediately struck by her beauty and the two sing the famous duet, “O soave fanciulla” (“Oh lovely maiden”). Still, the passionate love of Rodolfo and Mimì struggles to survive the brutal and unforgiving reality of poverty.

Puccini’s opera ultimately honors that tragic struggle – the struggle to create, to love and to live the Bohemian life. For over one hundred years, audiences have shared the hopes, the joys and the passions of these young artists, celebrating the bohemians’ unyielding commitment to seizing each new day with fervor.

Directed by Enrico Castiglione, La Bohème will be staged on the magnificent outdoor stage of the Ancient Greek Theater of Taormina, overlooking Mount Etna and the picturesque Sicilian coast. This production features costumes by Sonia Cammarata and is conducted by Li Xincao.

sru-003_anna-karenina_productimage_en_xx_rgb_1348x2048_72dpi_20160710_03UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Directed and choreographed by Angelica Cholina, this Vakhtangov Theatre production of ANNA KARENINA is a modern dance interpretation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, originally published in serial installments from 1875 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger. Telling the life story of the titular Anna, a St. Petersburg aristocrat, against the backdrop of late 19th century Russian society, Tolstoy’s novel is widely considered a pinnacle in realist fiction.

Cholina strives to find the equivalent of Tolstoy’s words in harmony and movement, as every gesture holds as much meaning as a word. The music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters of the drama and their depth, together with elegance and mood corresponding to the amplitude of the novel.

Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland.

Running time: 2 hours 15 min with one intermission.

Eugene Onegin has often been referred to as an encyclopedia of 19th century Russian life. Rimas Tuminas’ reimagining unfolds in the memory and imagination of Pushkin’s characters. The images are split between past and present, between reality and imagination.The scale of the production constantly shifts from noisy celebrations to secluded contemplation, from crowd scenes to lonely recollections, all of which are drawn together from the past just like the fragments of Tatyana’s love letter, framed and hung on the wall, looming next to and above Onegin’s arm-chair.

A production referred to as “exuberant, indelible and arrestingly beautiful” by the New York Times, The Vakhtangov Theatre’s Eugene Onegin, starring the incomparable Sergey Makovetskiy in the title role, is a sumptuous work that will leave you with enough beautiful memories and images to last a lifetime.

Available in DCP with subtitles from March 2017 in Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

Running time: 3 hours 25 min with one intermission.

Stage Russia HD – The Cherry Orchard

 

sru-002_cherry-orchard_productimage_en_xx_rgb_674x1024_72dpi_20160627_06UPDATE! This content is no longer available.

First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, this production of Anton Chekhov’s classic tale of cultural futility, starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago. Adolf Shapiro’s interpretation asks the question, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer, which lies in the material world created by set designer, David Borovsky, is, of course, on the stage.

A century later, this production brings The Cherry Orchard full circle, with its wandering band of characters never at peace, but finally back home.

Miss Saigon poster 1(UPDATE) – This content is no longer available.

This spectacular, sell-out 25th Anniversary Gala Performance of the global stage sensation Miss Saigon features appearances by the original cast too including Jonathan Pryce and Lea Salonga. This acclaimed new production was described as “the most thrilling, soaring and emotionally stirring musical with magnificent performances” by the Daily Telegraph and “the greatest musical of all time” by the Daily Mail. The epic love story tells the tragic tale of young bar girl Kim, orphaned by war, who falls in love with American GI Chris – but their lives are torn apart by the fall of Saigon.

“Miss Saigon first hit the London stage over a quarter of a century ago yet the live filmed version of the Prince Edward Theatre production is so potent and thrilling that it could have been written yesterday. Great works stand the test of time and this resonates with the war torn events going on now and it has an emotional power that compels you to watch and listen. It has the quality of a major movie and is certainly the best live film of a stage show that I’ve seen.”
– Baz Bamigboye, Daily Mail

ART BEATS SERIES – Revolution

 

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Revolution – New Art for a New World is a bold and exciting feature documentary that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde.

Stalin’s rise to power marked the close of this momentous period. Yet the Russian Avant-Garde continues to exert a lasting influence over art movements up to the present day.

Filmed entirely on location in Moscow, St. Petersburg and London, with access to The State Tretyakov Gallery, The State Russian Museum, The State Hermitage Museum and in co-operation with The Royal Academy of Arts, London, the film features paintings previously banned and unseen for decades, and masterpieces which rarely leave Russia.

Finding Noah

 

finding-noah-product-imageUPDATE: this content is no longer available

For over 2,000 years, man has been searching for the final resting place of Noah’s Ark. Though there have been many attempts, few have been able to fully explore the one place specifically noted in the Bible: Mount Ararat. Located in Eastern Turkey, Agri Dagh or “The Painful Mountain” is the tallest mountain in the region and lies in the very center of a centuries old, geo-politically unstable hot spot. With constant threats of deadly rock slides, hidden crevasses, and glacial ice falls, the Kurdish Rebel held mountain poses great risk to any explorer, let alone those performing a thorough scientific investigation.

Join director/producer Brent Baum and the FINDING NOAH film crew as they follow an expedition of intrepid explorers on a perilous trek up to Mt. Ararat’s desolate summit. There, using state of the art technology and real-time satellite imagery, this team of archeologists, scientists and professional mountaineers will begin a grid work of exploration unlike any before, hoping to finally resolve the age-old question: did Noah and his Ark actually exist?

Shot in never-before filmed locations and in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, FINDING NOAH is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitation.

David Lynch: Blue Velvet (1986) – Digitally Remastered Cinema Re-release

 

blue-velvet

UPDATE – This content is no longer available

Of the dozen features or so that David Lynch has directed, “Blue Velvet” of 1986 is not only one of his most accessible and commercial films, but also his most fully realized work. It’s time to declare it his best film–and masterpiece.

Blue Velvet is screenwriter and maverick director David Lynch’s artistically bizarre cult film. It is an original look at sex, violence, crime and power under the peaceful exterior of small-town Americana in the mid-80s. Beneath the familiar, peaceful, ‘American-dream’ cleanliness of the daytime scenes lurks sleaziness, prostitution, unrestrained violence, and perversity – powerful and potentially-dangerous sexual forces that may be unleashed if not contained.
