David Gilmour Live at Pompeii

 

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 60 minutes long 2K/4K concert movie to cinemas across Hungary and Romania.

Puccini: La Bohème LIVE from Taormina

 

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.

Raffaello: The Lord of the Arts 3D – ART BEATS SERIES 2017

 

We are excited to officially announce the 2017 new ART BEATS season. In cooperation with worldwide distributor NEXO DIGITAL and featuring artists such as Botticelli, Raphael and Caravaggio, state-of-the-art technologies in 4K and 3D, unprecedented access to secluded collections, and even surprising links to commercial blockbusters, the new ART BEATS series is about to return with what might be the best season yet.

From the team that brought you “The Vatican Museums”, “Florence and the Uffizi Gallery” and “St. Peter’s and the Papal Basilicas of Rome”, comes a captivating portrait of one of the greatest Renaissance artists, as well as one of the most influential for the subsequent history of modern art. Widely regarded and celebrated as an “enfant prodige” by both his peers and generations to follow, together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael forms the traditional triad of the Renaissance masters. And yet, not many people know his story. Using both stereoscopic 3D cameras and the most advanced dimensionalisation techniques (but also available in 2D), along with commentaries by important critics and refined historical reconstructions, “Raphael – Lord of the Arts” will shed a light on his life and his exquisite craft that marked the passage from the Renaissance to the Mannerism and brought the figurative art to unprecedented heights.

Available from May 2017, Pannonia Entertainment distributes this thrilling 3D art documentary to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania.

Caravaggio: The Ideal Exhibition – ART BEATS SERIES 2017

 

“Caravaggio – The Ideal Exhibition” inaugurates a highly innovative, brand new concept destined to redefine art documentaries. A very important curator, Antonio Natali (director of the Uffizi Gallery for over 10 years), recreates his ideal exhibition of Caravaggio in order to give us a fascinating and comprehensive portrait of one of the greatest, most controversial and beloved artists of all times.

Giò Forma – a top-notch international multi-platform bureau for design, responsible for designing some of the greatest concert tours, award ceremonies and events around the world (Olympic Games, Italy’s Expo etc…) – will create a virtual exhibition like no others that comprise installations, projections and the most advanced technological equipment. In this incredible environment, Natali will bring us through different rooms/chapters inspired by Caravaggio’s troubled and mysterious life, as well as by his phenomenal art, whose ground-breaking and violent realism was a shocking departure from the gentle art of the Mannerism. From there we will leap to the real locations where Caravaggio travelled and lived and where his famous paintings are displayed in order to analyze them in great detail: from his training period in Milan and Venice, to the sudden success in Rome, up to the murder and the consequent death sentence that forced him to flee to Naples, Malta and Sicily, where his work grew darker and darker, obsessed by images of death and themes like guilt, punishment and redemption.

Available from November 2017, Pannonia Entertainment will distribute this spectacular documentary to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania.

Stage Russia HD – 2016/17 Cinema Season

 

stage-russia-logo-webre2Captured live in HD from the stages of Russia’s greatest theater companies, the Stage Russia HD series brings the mastery of Russian theater to Western cinema audiences. The inaugural season kicks off in September 2016 with the Vakhtangov Theatre’s magical production of Alexander Pushkin’s EUGENE ONEGIN.

Stage Russia HD features a broad mix of genres and styles, including classic productions, dance pieces, satirical works, and Soviet era surrealism – some with familiar titles and others that are lesser known to Western audiences, but which provide a small peek into what’s called the Russian soul…which, in typical Russian fashion is, of course, elusive.

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

Titles of the season:

The Cherry Orchard – Available on DCP with subtitles, from February 2017

Eugene Onegin – Available on DCP from with subtitles, from March 2017

Anna Karenina – Available on DCP with subtitles, from April 2017

The Black Monk – Available on DCP with subtitles, from November 2017

Stage Russia HD – Anna Karenina

 

sru-003_anna-karenina_productimage_en_xx_rgb_1348x2048_72dpi_20160710_03Directed 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.

Available in DCP from April 2017, Pannonia Entertainment distributes to cinemas across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and China.

Stage Russia HD – Eugene Onegin

 

tsl_stagerussiaonegin_event-693x1024Eugene 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.

Stage Russia HD – The Cherry Orchard

 

sru-002_cherry-orchard_productimage_en_xx_rgb_674x1024_72dpi_20160627_06First 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.

Finding Noah

 

finding-noah-product-imageFor 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.

Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty

 

SleepingBeauty-mainFollowing a sell-out UK tour Matthew Bourne’s brand-new production, Sleeping Beauty, is coming to cinemas for the first time. The story begins in 1890, the year of the ballet’s first performance, at the christening of the heroine Princess Aurora. It was the Fin-de-Siecle period when fairies, vampires and decadent opulence fed the gothic imagination. As Aurora grows into a young woman, we move forward in time to the more rigid, uptight Edwardian era; a mythical golden age of long summer afternoons, croquet on the lawn and new dance crazes. Years later, awakening from her century long slumber, Aurora finds herself in the modern day, a world more mysterious and wonderful than any fairy story!
