  • TED '16: DREAM Opening Night Captured Live

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    BY Experience is proud to present for the first time ever, the global phenomenon known simply as TED – a thriving movement propelled by ideas that are transforming the world – is coming to cinemas worldwide. The program will debut on February 15 (LIVE) in North America, and February 16 (CAPTURED LIVE) for the rest of the world, the general public will have the previously unthinkable opportunity to experience the "opening night" of TED's legendary annual conference, alongside its equally legendary VIP audience. Hosted by TED's curator Chris Anderson, the approximately 120-minute theatrical screening of this event will debut the first evening of TED 2016: Dream (live directly from Vancouver, Canada from February 15- 22), featuring world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who will share their "ideas worth spreading" about the greatest dreams we are capable of dreaming. What emerges is a spirit of wonder and optimism that represents the world at its best. While TED holds specific details in confidentiality until shortly prior to the event each year, we expect a dramatic musical act will set the event in motion before Chris Anderson takes the stage with opening remarks, which build a thrilling sense of anticipation and conclude with his hallmark declaration: "It's time for TED!" At that point, TED will premiere its inventive 2016 "opening titles" video – typically produced by a world-class design house renowned for creating the dazzling motion graphics in blockbuster Hollywood films. And from there, the heart of the program begins with a succession of extraordinary speakers – drawn from artists, inventors, adventurers, global leaders, and visionaries – who will deliver the "talk" of their lives in the world-famous TED 18-minute format. Impromptu on-stage interviews and imaginative short films will be interspersed throughout the program, which typically concludes with a second spectacular artistic performance. For the cinema-going audience, watching "opening night" at TED'16 will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity to join in the experience with the 1,200 attendees in Vancouver – the world's leading thinkers and doers who have won every international prize of excellence from Nobel Laureates, to Pulitzer Prize authors, to Oscar winners.

  • Renoir: Reviled and Revered

    Runtime: 90 mins     Rating: TBC

    He is one of the most fiercely debated artists and yet one of the most influential. Picasso collected more Renoirs than any other artist. Matisse revered him. Monet too. He was an artist that was instrumental in creating the Impressionist movement and then totally rejected it and went in a completely new direction - with extraordinary results. The Barnes Collection in Philadelphia has more Renoirs than any other gallery in the world and it's there that the search begins to tell the remarkable story of this remarkable artist.

  • Barber of Seville from Rossini 4K Resolution – Theater of Turin (Recorded)

    Runtime: 167 mins     Rating: LIVE

    A new production for cinema

    An opera in two acts by Gioacchino Rossini to a libretto by Cesare Sterbini, based on the comedy by Beaumarchais.

    Without a doubt the most famous comic opera in the history of music and an eternal source of delight. Vittorio Borelli, the producer, has returned the action to its original setting, namely the era of Beaumarchais, with his powdered wigs and silk breeches. Antonio Sarasso plays the part of the mute servant, using just enough mime to provide the necessary dash of ingenuity to drive the comical mechanics of this story. In Seville, the young Rosina is cloistered away by her tutor, the old doctor Bartolo, who has got it into his head to marry her in order to keep her dowry. But Rosina is in love with the young Count Almaviva who, with the help of Figaro, will try anything to get close to his beloved.
    When it comes to the singers, this opera is a real pleasure. Antonino Siragusa plays a mischievous Almaviva, with a very distinctive timbre. Roberto de Candia gives Figaro all the good-natured roundness of his silhouette, while Nicola Ulivieri and Marco Filippo Romano form a criminal duo, complementing each other rather cheeringly. The first is worryingly evil with a penchant for carefully-targeted slander, vicious and insidious right up to a deafening “colpo di cannone”; the second is a genuine basso buffo with all of the colourfulness that this signifies, a sense of the ridiculous and mastery of the syllabic singing style in the formidable “A un dottor della mia sorte”. Chiara Amaru’s Rosina is devastating both in her rebel spirit and her alluring, intoxicating, velvety mezzo-soprano voice and accomplished mastery of the “Rossini” style.

  • NT Live: Hangmen (Live)

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Following a sell-out run at London's Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster's award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

    In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey – The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging?

    Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman – Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn – Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.

  • Iolanta / The Nutcracker – Live – Opera National De Paris

    Runtime: 225 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Directed for the stage by Dmitri Tcherniakov, this exceptional program combines all the talents of the Paris Opera and offers an opera and a ballet in a single evening: Tchaikovsky originally intended Iolanta and The Nutcracker to be staged together. However, since their debut performance at Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre in 1892, they have been presented separately.

    The composer found inspiration for his opera in Danish playwright Henrik Hertz's work recounting the romantic story of Iolanta, the blind daughter of King René. Protected by her father in his Provençal château, the princess ultimately regains her sight before marrying the gallant knight Vaudémont. The Nutcracker is based on a tale by Hoffmann adapted by Alexandre Dumas. This "fairy-tale ballet" recounts the adventures of young Clara one Christmas night, during which the nutcracker she has been given leads her into a magical world.

    In collaboration with stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov and conductor Alain Altinoglu, five choreographers - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Edouard Lock, Benjamin Millepied, Arthur Pita and Liam Scarlett -will each work on a specific passage of the ballet. The role of Iolanta will be sung by Sonya Yoncheva and the Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs and Corps de Ballet will perform The Nutcracker.

    Like a two-sided mirror reflecting the dreams of a composer who took refuge in the realms of the imaginary, the Paris Opera is reviving the original diptych. Alain Altinoglu conducts and Dmitri Tcherniakov stages this production that symbolizes the link between opera and ballet.

  • Royal Opera: Boris Godunov (Live)

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky’s historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The originality of the composer’s vision of Pushkin’s play about Tsar Boris Godunov – who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 – was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated in the second version of the opera, in which Boris finally had its premiere in 1874. Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions. Keenly awaited will be Bryn Terfel’s assumption of the title role – one of the most complex characters in opera – while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.

  • Verdi Requiem

    Runtime: 85 mins     Rating:

    Originally performed at La Scala in 1967 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Toscanini’s death, this production with the orchestra and chorus of the Teatro alla Scala was presented in Moscow, Montreal and New York, in addition to Milan. It was recorded on film (35mm) in 1967, with the young Luciano Pavarotti replacing Carlo Bergonzi. It is one of Karajan’s earliest film productions (and his first color film); it reflects his innovativeness, especially in his choice of Henri-Georges Clouzot as director, the French creator of classic “films noirs” such as "Quai des Orfèvres" and "Wages of Fear".
    Together with Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Verdi's Requiem ranks as one of the two supreme achievements in 19th-century liturgical music. Verdi revered the great Italian author Alessandro Manzoni. When Manzoni died on 22 May 1873, Verdi wrote to his publisher expressing his desire to compose a Requiem Mass. It was premiered on the first anniversary of Manzoni's death. From the hushed reverence of the "Requiem aeternam" to the raging fury of the "Dies irae", and from the overwhelming power of the "Tuba mirum" to the sobbing grief of the "Lacrimosa", the Requiem is a highly dramatic and emotional - though not theatrical - work. Verdi specified that it "must not be sung the way an opera is sung". A work of awesome grandeur, it projects a compelling sincerity and honesty, even though Verdi was a non-observant Catholic.

  • Royal Ballet: Giselle (Live)

    Runtime: 135 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Giselle is the quintessential Romantic classic, a love affair that begins in the real world and continues beyond the grave. The ballet’s title role also offers one of the great challenges of the ballet repertory, as Giselle transforms from an innocent peasant girl, duped into love, to a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death. For the ballerina this is a role of two contrasting halves: in Act I she must appear naïve and artless, her dancing alive with an earthy enthusiasm; in Act II she transforms into light and air, her dancing so ethereal as to seem weightless. In Peter Wright’s production, the dual aspect of the ballet is perfectly achieved: the first act dramatized in rich, naturalistic detail and the second with a spectral, moonlit beauty.

  • Royal Opera: Lucia Di Lammermoor (Live)

    Runtime: 170 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers... It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera’s most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti’s finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo.

  • RIGOLETTO live from Opera De Paris

    Runtime: 155 mins     Rating:

    “Oh! Victor Hugo’s Le Roi s’amuse is the greatest subject, and perhaps the greatest drama of modern times. It’s a work worthy of Shakespeare!” A few months before he wrote those words to Francesco Maria Piave urging him to “turn Venice upside down and persuade the Censor to authorise the subject” – no easy matter given that moral values would be easily offended – Verdi was working on an adaptation of King Lear.
    No doubt, he was already imbued with the play by his revered master, Shakespeare, when he read Victor Hugo's drama. On discovering in the works of the French writer to whom he would owe Ernani, the greatest triumph of his “difficult years”, a parallel with the triangle formed by the King, his daughter and the jester, it was “like a thunderbolt, an inspiration”. Between the frivolous, licentious Duke, and Gilda, a victim of the ignorance which holds her captive, stands the double-faceted character of the hunchback, both buffoon and curse-obsessed father. Monstrous and heartrending, grotesque and sublime, the title role reaches its apogee in the aria “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata”, whose descending movement, from the explosion of rage to the moment of entreaty, confirms the composer’s ability to adapt a form inherited from bel canto to theatrical realism.
    Under the baton of Nicola Luisotti, this new production of Rigoletto marks director Claus Guth’s first collaboration with the Paris Opera.

  • RSC: Hamlet (Live)

    Runtime: 210 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Hamlet has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead. Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality. Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona 2014) directs Paapa Essiedu as Hamlet in Shakespeare's searing tragedy. As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own mortality in an imperfect world.

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Based on Goethe’s novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet's opera tells the story of the poet Werther’s hopeless love for Charlotte, who is committed to another man... The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour, – small wonder that Werther is often considered to be the composer’s finest work. The Royal Opera’s Music Director Antonio Pappano returns to conduct film, theatre and opera director Benoît Jacquot's classic production. Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo stars as Werther, alongside Joyce DiDonato, who sings her first Charlotte (one of the great French mezzo roles) in this staging.
