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.

NORMA (Bellini) Opera Live from Teatro Liceu Barcelona
Runtime:1mins       Rating:LIVE

Premiered on 26 September 1831 at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. First performed at the Gran Teatre del Liceu on 16 October 1847. Last staged at the Liceu on 30 July 2007.
If we weep from emotion on hearing it, it's nothing to be ashamed of. That is what Richard Wagner said about Vincenzo Bellini's most famous opera, which he considered the most perfect example of a musical tragedy. And rightly so, because in Norma Italian Romanticism reached its pinnacle. This production, by up-and-coming American stage director Kevin Newbury, stresses the ritual aspects of the drama. In Roman-dominated Gaul, the high priestess Norma has broken her vow of chastity by entering a relationship with the Roman pro-consul Pollione and the birth of their two children has been kept secret. But when she discovers she has a rival, jealousy sets in. Norma is a classical heroine, passionate and revengeful, and her dilemma provides the starting point for the most successful work by the last and greatest composer of bel canto. Though the first performance was a failure, Norma went on to become an established favourite. It first came to the Liceu in 1847, not long after its official opening, and was, in fact, the third opera to be staged there.

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

Inspired by L'Abbť Prťvostís legendary heroine, Kenneth MacMillan expresses his fascination for offbeat characters and dramatic subjects. The choreographer faithfully follows the novelís plot and reconstructs the tragic story of the sensual yet naÔve 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, Manonís passionate existence propels inevitably toward the balletís sublime, yet tragic conclusion.
