ROH- Royal Opera 2016-17 Season - Madama Butterfly (12A LIVE)

ROH- Royal Opera 2016-17 Season - Madama Butterfly
APPROXIMATE RUNNING TIME 2 HOURS 45 MINUTES, INCLUDING ONE INTERVAL. SUNG IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride.

Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

Rigoletto (15)

Rigoletto
Opera in 3 acts | Sung in Italian

Despite serious initial problems with the Austrian censors who had control over northern Italian theatres at the time, the opera Rigoletto had a triumphant premiere at La Fenice in Venice on 11 March 1851.

It is considered by many to be the first of the operatic masterpieces of Verdi’s middle-to-late career. Its tragic story revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto and Rigoletto’s beautiful daughter Gilda. The opera’s original title, La maledizione (The Curse), refers to the curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter had been seduced by the Duke with Rigoletto’s encouragement. The curse comes to fruition when Gilda likewise falls in love with the Duke and eventually sacrifices her life to save him from the assassins hired by her father.

ROH- Royal Ballet 2016-17 Season - Jewels (12A LIVE)

ROH- Royal Ballet 2016-17 Season - Jewels
George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauréprovides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinskyand the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in ‘Diamonds’.

Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (15)

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
On 22 April the incomparable Jack Nicholson will reach 80. In celebration of this milestone birthday, the BFI is re-releasing One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the magnificent 1975 tragicomedy in which he starred.

Nicholson’s unforgettable performance as the ingenious, heroic free spirit RP ‘Mac’ McMurphy, who leads an uprising in the men’s ward of a mental hospital run by callous Nurse Rached (Louise Fletcher), won him his first Best Actor Oscar®.

Adapted from Ken Kesey’s best-selling 1962 novel, directed by Miloš Forman (Amadeus, Man on the Moon) and produced by Saul Zaentz (Amadeus, The English Patient) and Michael Douglas (his first producer role), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was only the second film ever to win the ‘big five’ Oscars®. It also won six BAFTAs and six Golden Globes.

The brilliant supporting cast of hospital patients, who interacted together throughout the story, were selected from over 100 actors after multiple auditions. Mostly unknown at the time, they included Danny DeVito - in his first major role - as Martini, Brad Dourif (Billy Bibbit) who has had a hugely successful stage and screen career ever since, Christopher Lloyd (future star of the Back to the Future trilogy) in his first film role and the Native American painter Will Sampson as Chief Bromden.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is considered to be one of the greatest American films of all time. In 1993 it was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the United States Library of Congress, since it was deemed to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

This rare chance to see one of the classics of ‘70s cinema back on big screen again is not to be missed.

ROH- Royal Ballet 2016-17 Season - The Dream / Symphonic Variati
RUNNING TIME TO BE CONFIRMED. THERE WILL BE TWO INTERVALS

This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after World War II, and one of the Company's first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946.

With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton's beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi's opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.

Italia Live: Die Entfuhrung Aus Dem Serail (12A LIVE)

Italia Live: Die Entfuhrung Aus Dem Serail
Die Entfu¨hrung aus dem Serail was written at the order of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II. For source material, Mozart turned to a popular farce of his day about two pairs of European lovers, one noble and the other their servants, who are trying to escape from the harem of a Turkish pasha and his amusingly sleazy overseer. The work uses spoken dialogue and separate musical numbers in the form of a Singspiel, or "sung play." Twenty years on since the death of the great director, Teatro alla Scala is proposing new staging, yet calling to the podium the man who conducted it the first time round - the great Zubin Mehta. The dizzying role of Konstanze is sung by Lenneke Ruiten, with the emerging Mozart tenor Mauro Peter in the role of Belmonte. Screening Live from: Teatro Alla Scala

The future was to prove him right. However, in moving from Perrault’s tale to the opera, the humble servant who dreams of going to the ball has lost all her magical attributes: there is no fairy godmother to wave her wand and it is not a fur slipper but a bracelet that the beauty leaves behind for her prince, as a deliberate challenge to find her again.

Royal Shakespeare Company: Titus Andronicus
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.

Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).
