Miss Saigon 25th Anniversary Gala Performance

 

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

Pannonia Entertainment distributes this stunning musicel to cinemas across Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic.

Available from the 20th of October till the 20th of November 2016.

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.

Mozart: Così Fan Tutte – Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season 2016/17

 

Così-fan-tutte-Main-Image-High-Res-Copy-305x305-2UPDATE! This content is no longer available.

How much do you love your partner? How much do you trust them? And can they trust you? Mozart’s classic opera Così fan tutte puts two pairs of lovers to the test – with great music but distinctly unexpected results.

For this new production, director Jan Philipp Gloger creates a richly theatrical world as the playground for this quirky comedy, where two men try to woo each other’s partners for a bet. Don Alfonso – the puppet master of this experiment in love – is here a theatre director who uses all the sets, props and tricks of his trade to invent new scenes to challenge the lovers’ affections.

This lively, youthful and imaginative take on one of the world’s best-loved operas is performed by a cast of rising stars conducted by Semyon Bychkov.

An identity in crisis; a country in revolution. Anastasia is a ballet about one of the great historical mysteries of the 20th century, only recently solved. At the height of the Russian Revolution the royal family were executed, but afterwards a young woman appeared – apparently a surviving royal princess, the Grand Duchess Anastasia. Known as ‘Anna Anderson’, she couldn’t remember her past and she was presumed to be an imposter. Many wanted to forget the massacre and the Revolution; many believed, or hoped, that a princess could have survived, a remnant of the old world.

Verdi’s AIDA on Sydney Harbour – Opera Australia in Cinemas

 

aida-poster(UPDATE) – This content is no longer available.

In Aida, Verdi masterfully pits the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe: where kingdoms rise and fall and the sands of time grind onwards. There could be no grander setting for such an opera than Sydney Harbour itself, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun. Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour has become a huge part of the cultural landscape, combining all of the things Sydney does best: world-class opera, champagne and fine dining, sunsets and spectacle on the harbour’s edge.

It’s a monumental undertaking, with a team of more than 700 people involved in the project before a single note is heard over the harbour. Aida is the biggest opera they’ve ever performed on the opera stage. But amid all of the spectacle, the famous ‘Triumphal March’, battle scenes and ancient temples, there’s an emotional heart.

Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice (The Royal Shakespeare Company)

 

The-Merchant-of-Venice-Live-from-Stratford-243x317‘Treasure Island’ director Polly Findlay makes her RSC Shakespeare debut with the Bard’s great tragedy.

Bassanio asks his friend, Venetian merchant Antonio, to lend him three thousand ducats to finance his wooing of the lovely Portia of Belmont. But since Antonio’s wealth is tied up in seafaring business ventures, he borrows the cash from moneylender Shylock. Thanks to simmering racial tensions, there’s no love lost between the two men. Shylock insists on a bond stipulating that if the debt is not repaid by an agreed date, he will take a pound of Antonio’s flesh. Then news arrives that Antonio’s ships have been lost at sea.

Hot from her lavish production of ‘Treasure Island’ at the National Theatre, Polly Findlay tackles Shakespeare’s troubling tragedy. Her previous credits include ‘Arden of Faversham’, which played in the RSC’s Swan Theatre as part of the Roaring Girls season. She also directed ‘Protest Song’ at The Shed at the National Theatre.

Shakespeare: Love’s Labour’s Won or Much Ado About Nothing (The Royal Shakespeare Company)

 

LovesLaboursWon-Review-Image-243x317Autumn 1918. A group of soldiers return from the trenches. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. As memories of conflict give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall madly, deeply in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship.

Shakespeare’s comic romance plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened – before peace ultimately wins the day.

Christopher Luscombe directs the second of Shakespeare’s matching pair of comedies that rejoice in our capacity to find love in the most unlikely places. Better known as Much Ado About Nothing, the play is performed under the title Love’s Labour’s Won, a name possibly given to it during Shakespeare’s lifetime.

LIVE broadcast: 7pm 4th March 2015

Shakespeare: Love’s Labour’s Lost (The Royal Shakespeare Company)

 

LovesLaboursLost-Review-ImageSummer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting them with a severe test of resolve.

Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be utterly transformed by the war to end all wars.

Christopher Luscombe directs one acting company in both Love’s Labour’s Lost and Love’s Labour’s Won (usually known as Much Ado About Nothing).

A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Shakespeare’s GLOBE 2014/15

 

midsummerA hugely imaginative, crowd-pleasing production of Shakespeare’s delightful comedy from the Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole. Hermia loves Lysander, but is betrothed to Demetrius. So the lovers flee into the magical woods. Here, a group of ‘rude mechanicals’ are rehearsing a poorly written play which they intend to perform at the wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta. Meanwhile, a dispute between fairy king Oberon and queen Titania is about to unleash magic that will change the lives of everyone. Three stories intertwine deliciously in Shakespeare’s most popular comedy. Dominic Dromgoole’s hugely enjoyable production retains a conventional Elizabethan setting but is served with dazzling wit and invention. The result is a mischievous and playful delight, delivering all manner of comic confusion. Olivier Award-winner Michelle Terry was last seen at the Globe in Dromgoole’s 2007 production of ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’. Leading a superb cast, she reunites with him to play the dual roles of Titania and Hippolyta.

Macbeth – Shakespeare’s GLOBE 2014/15

 

macbethEve Best’s sublime and unexpectedly funny period-dress production of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. A trio of witches prophesy that Scottish general Macbeth (Joseph Millson) will one day become king. Egged on by his ambitious, scheming wife (Samantha Spiro), he decides to hasten matters by murdering virtuous King Duncan (Gawn Grainger). But having taken the throne, he becomes a tyrant who must continue to kill – starting with former comrade-in-arms Banquo (Billy Boyd). Actor Eve Best made what the Daily Telegraph described as “a cracking directorial debut” with this pacy, Jacobean-dress production of the ‘Scottish Play’. Led by Joseph Millson, the eclectic cast includes double Olivier Award-winner Samantha Spiro as Lady Macbeth and ‘Lord of the Rings’ star Billy Boyd as Banquo. A masterpiece of ambition, treachery and madness, ‘Macbeth’ is renowned as the Bard’s most chilling engagement with the forces of evil. But Best also brings out the play’s humour to great effect.

The Merry Wives of Windsor – Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

 

merry-wives2The tables are turned on wily seducer Falstaff in the Bard’s brilliantly constructed farce, recorded during the 2010 ‘Kings and Rogues’ season at Shakespeare’s Globe. One of Shakespeare’s most accessible plays, ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ is often cited as a forerunner of the modern situation comedy and has even been claimed as a major influence on ‘Fawlty Towers’! First staged at the Globe in 2008, this very physical production of the spirited romp has a fabulously frisky Christopher Benjamin labouring beneath a fat suit and luxuriant beard as rotund, pompous buffoon Sir John Falstaff. Finding himself short of cash on arrival in Windsor, the roguish Falstaff resolves to seduce a pair of wealthy married women: Mistress Page (Serena Evans) and Mistress Ford (Sarah Woodward). The ladies quickly twig that he has sent them identical love letters. Having no interest in the overweight would-be seducer, they decide to turn the tables with a series of humiliating assignations and a very smelly laundry basket. Shakespeare’s only play about the middle classes, the colourful ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ combines slapstick, farce and bawdy humour in a style that will be instantly recognisable to modern audiences.

But will his attachment to the rising Hal lead to the reward he feels he so richly deserves? Part 2 boasts many of the most memorable moments in all of Shakespeare’s work, including the king’s deathbed scene, when Hal contemplates the crown; the reunion of Falstaff with his old boon companion, Justice Shallow (William Gaunt); and Hal’s ultimate, devastating rejection of Falstaff himself.

Described by The Stage as “spellbinding”, Patrick Dromgoole’s faithful, enormously entertaining production of ‘Henry IV’ is perfectly suited to the reconstructed Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. Part one delivers plenty of knockabout fun, as it charts the rise of idle barfly Prince Hal (Jamie Parker) to monarch-in-waiting. Forsaking the Royal Court, the young wastrel vexes his father, King Henry IV (Oliver Cotton), by squandering his life among the whores, boozers and petty rogues of Eastcheap. None is more roguish and corrupt than the fat knight, Sir John Falstaff (Roger Allam), a liar, glutton, lecher, cheat, braggart, fool and sponger. That he also possesses wit, warmth, intelligence and a gigantic sense of fun is the chief attraction for Hal, who quickly tired of stifling court life. Meanwhile, a rebellion is brewing, led by the Duke of Northumberland (Christopher Godwin) and his charismatic son, Hotspur (Sam Crane).
