Fidelio (Beethoven) Opera Live from Teatro alla Scala, Milan
Runtime:160mins       Rating:LIVE

A tribute to marriage coming from a bachelor is a tad suspicious. But for Beethoven the idealization of the woman-bride was heartfelt and sincere. It has always been a unique opera starring a courageous wife who wows audiences. Fidelio is a moral title, associated with the ideals of liberty of the French Enlightenment. Nobility and commoners are united in their thirst for justice against the oppression of power. For once the faithful consort of a desaparecido wins her battle against a treacherous tyrant, and the collective joy truly is “nameless”, as is sung on the stage. Especially because the “our heroes to the rescue” finale is recounted by the triumphant symphonic flair of the quintessential musician. Beethoven really does bring the world to collapse at the conclusion of this opera, which begins like a delightful little comedy, but which scales and transcends all the summits of the dramatic-musical art. Daniel Barenboim has spent a lifetime examining every note of Beethoven and his maturity unquestionably holds some thrilling and touching surprises in store for us. Great anticipation for the choices of the very sophisticated English director Deborah Warner, who charmed audiences a few years ago with a gorgeous production of Britten’s Death in Venice. And the lyrical difficulty of the masterpiece has been overcome, with a cast of eminent names from international lyric opera. The show is included in the"Milan Heart of Europe" program, promoted by the Municipality of Milan during the semester of the Italian Presidency of the EU: no other title could better represent the values and culture of Europe.

RIGOLETTO (Giuseppe Verdi) live from Vienna
Runtime:180mins       Rating:LIVE

Considered one of Giuseppe Verdi’s greatest accomplishments, Rigoletto continues to enthrall audiences worldwide with its tragic plot and famous arias. One of the most popular arias of all time, “La donna e’ mobile,” is so catchy that prior to Rigoletto’s premiere in Venice of 1851, Verdi swore the tenor to secrecy, forbidding him to sing, hum, or whistle it anywhere except in his private rehearsals.

A tragedy of social injustice and inequality, Rigoletto explores the self-hate of the titular hunchbacked court jester, a typical Verdian character who oscillates between affection for his daughter and contempt for the nobility. Caught up in the Duke’s lascivious lifestyle, Rigoletto is cursed for his complicity. An intense drama of passion, deceit, filial love, revenge and murder, Rigoletto perfectly combines melodic richness with dramatic power, both being features which characterize Verdi’s opera masterpieces and ensure them a permanent place in the world’s operatic repertoire.

RSC: Love's Labour's Lost (Live)
Runtime:155mins       Rating:LIVE

Love's Labour's Lost and Love's Labour's Won (usually known as Much Ado About Nothing) from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

As part of a season marking the centenary of the First World War, Christopher Luscombe returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company to direct a single company of actors in a fresh pairing of two of Shakespeare's most sparkling comedies, set in a splendid country house just before and just after the war.

Returning to the RSC are Edward Bennett and Michelle Terry, who will play the lovers in both productions.

In Love's Labour's Lost, the mischievous Rosaline tests Berowne's high-minded resolve in the summer of 1914. At the end of the play the merriment is curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware the world around them is about to be transformed by a war to end all wars.

Love's Labour's Won begins four years later in the autumn of 1918 with a world-weary Benedick and Claudio returning from the trenches to a post-war house party, where Claudio falls in love with Hero and Benedick reignites his altogether more combative courtship with Beatrice. Youthful passions run riot before peace ultimately breaks out.

L'Histoire de Manon (Ballet) Live from Opera De Paris
Runtime:155mins       Rating:TBC

Inspired by L'Abbé Prévost’s legendary heroine, Kenneth MacMillan expresses his fascination for offbeat characters and dramatic subjects. The choreographer faithfully follows the novel’s plot and reconstructs the tragic story of the sensual yet naïve Manon - more victim than architect of her fate. In Regency Paris, bourgeois society gorges itself on luxury and easy pleasures. Carried off in this whirlwind, Manon is unable to resist temptation and devastates the faithful Des Grieux in her fall. The choreographer constructs his ballet on a mosaic of extracts from Massenet, finding in the music all the drama, freshness and romanticism necessary for this grand fresco in dance. From crowded ball scenes to spirited, romantic, spirited pas de deux, Manon’s passionate existence propels inevitably toward the ballet’s sublime, yet tragic conclusion.
