Thursday 20th April – NT Live: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

7p.m. £11/£10

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London.

 

David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight.

 

Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage.  As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

Wednesday 7 June – ROH:THE DREAM / SYMPHONIC VARIATIONS / MARGUERITE AND ARMAND LIVE BALLET

7.15pm £11/£10

Choreographer: Frederick Ashton

Music: Mendelssohn / Franck / Liszt

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.
