Tuesday 11 April 2017 - ROH: Live Opera JEWELS

7.15pm £11/£10

George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsk yin ‘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.

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.

Wednesday 9th August RSC Live: Titus Andronicus

7pm £11/£10

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).

Thursday 31st August - NT: YERMA

7.00 pm £11/£10

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval.

★★★★★ “Brutal yet ferociously funny”, Metro ★★★★★ “Billie Piper makes a shattering Yerma in Simon Stone’s inspired reworking of Lorca”, The Observer

★★★★★ “A shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic”, The Independent

Sunday 17th September - Comedy at The Edge: Mark Watson

8pm £17

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, ‘I’m Not Here’, and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he’s not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether. It’s hard to be everywhere at once, so he’s narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials – as they’ve already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won’t know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren’t actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.
