  • In Search Of Mozart

    Runtime: 129 mins     Rating: TBC

    Made to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart’s birth, In Search Of Mozart was produced with the world’s leading orchestras and musicians, and is told through a 25,000 mile journey along every route Mozart followed. This is a detective story that takes us to the heart of genius.

    Without resorting to docu-drama or visual re-enactment, In Search of Mozart traces the composer’s life through his music and extensive correspondence. From K1a to K626 (Requiem), over 80 works are featured in chronological order, revealing striking parallels between the music and Mozart’s own experiences. Throughout, it is the music that takes centre stage, with the jigsaw of Mozart’s life fitting around it. With rigorous analysis from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the composer emerges. It dispels the many common myths about Mozart’s genius, health, relationships, death and character, to present a new image, very different from Milos Forman’s Amadeus.

    Narrated by Juliet Stevenson and with Mozart voiced by Samuel West, the film features interviews and performances with over 70 of the greatest exponents of Mozart’s music including: Christophe Rousset, Sir Roger Norrington, René Jacobs, Sir Charles Mackerras, Renée Fleming, Magdalena Kožená, Sandrine Piau, Ian Bostridge, Gerald Finley, Sir Thomas Allen, Imogen Cooper, Pierre Laurent Aimard, Leif ove Andsnes, Lang Lang and Škampa Quartet. Frans Bruggen’s Orchestra of 18th Century and Ronald Brautigam perform much of the orchestral repertoire but the film also includes live performances from the Vienna Philharmonic, Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Salzburg Camerata, Bayerischen Rundfunks, Concerto Köln, Netherlands Opera, Staatskapelle Berlin and Prague Estates Theatre.

  • Stage Russia: Anna Karenina

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Directed and choreographed by Angelica Cholina, this Vakhtangov Theatre production of ANNA KARENINA is a modern dance interpretation of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel, originally published in serial installments from 1875 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger. Telling the life story of the titular Anna, a St. Petersburg aristocrat, against the backdrop of late 19th century Russian society, Tolstoy's novel is widely considered a pinnacle in realist fiction.
    Cholina strives to find the equivalent of Tolstoy's words in harmony and movement, as every gesture holds as much meaning as a word. The music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters of the drama and their depth, together with elegance and mood corresponding to the amplitude of the novel.

  • Royal Opera: Il Trovatore (Live)

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    International superstars Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Anita Rachvelishvili, Lianna Haroutounian and Gregory Kunde lead a superb cast of world-class singers in this Verdi classic.

    Il trovatore is one of the great operas of the Romantic period, a story of passion and blood, love and vengeance, disaster and murder.

    New in the 2015/16 Season, this atmospheric and poetic staging by director David Bösch puts the story of passion against the backdrop of war. Fire and snow in the landscape echo the cruelty and love of the story: soldiers and gypsies clash, a mother reveals a terrible secret and two men are engaged in a deadly fight for one woman. The famous Anvil Chorus is just one of the highlights of Verdi's exceptionally fine music, which captures the shifting emotions of the drama through impassioned love duets, fiery solos and stirring choruses.

    Runtime: 180 mins     Rating: LIVE

    A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers.

    First choreographed to Tchaikovsky's great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess.

  • In Search of Beethoven

    In Search of Beethoven addresses the romantic myth that Beethoven was a heroic, tormented figure battling to overcome his tragic fate, struck down by deafness, who searched for his ‘immortal beloved’ but remained unmarried. It delves beyond the image of the tortured, cantankerous, unhinged personality, to reveal someone quite different and far more interesting. In Search of Beethoven has brought together the world’s leading performers and experts on Beethoven to reveal new insights into this legendary composer.

  • Opera de Paris: A Midsummers Night's Dream (Live)

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Numerous choreographers have delved into Shakespeare to find dramatic material for their ballets, beginning with Jean-Georges Noverre, an ardent defender of the "action ballet" and Marius Petipa, who was the first to use Mendelssohn's stage music. George Balanchine, who also loved the score, would prove no exception. In 1962 he created his version of Shakespeare's comedy for New York City Ballet. Faithful to the Bard's vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment. One of George Balanchine's rare narrative ballets, A Midsummer Night's Dream is entering the Paris Opera Ballet's repertoire. The sets and costumes for this production have been designed by another magician of the stage, Christian Lacroix.

  • Royal Opera: Madama Butterfly (Live)

    Runtime: 165 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Puccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria 'Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

  • Gran Teatre del Liceu: Rigoletto (Live)

    Runtime: 120 mins     Rating: LIVE

    Despite serious initial problems with the Austrian censors who had control over northern Italian theatres at the time, the opera Rigoletto had a triumphant premiere at La Fenice in Venice on 11 March 1851.
    It is considered by many to be the first of the operatic masterpieces of Verdi's middle-to-late career. Its tragic story revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto and Rigoletto's beautiful daughter Gilda. The opera's original title, La maledizione (The Curse), refers to the curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter had been seduced by the Duke with Rigoletto's encouragement. The curse comes to fruition when Gilda likewise falls in love with the Duke and eventually sacrifices her life to save him from the assassins hired by her father.

  • Royal Ballet: Jewels (Live)

    Runtime: 150 mins     Rating: LIVE

    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 Tchaikovsky in '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.

  • In Search of Chopin

    Runtime: 110 mins     Rating: TBC

    Acclaimed director Phil Grabsky brings to the cinema and TV screens around the world the life and music of Fryderyk Chopin – one of the greatest composers of all time.

    His grave in Paris remains a place of pilgrimage and his music continues to sell out concert halls worldwide – but who exactly was this man who was terrified of public performance, who fled his Polish homeland for Paris never to return, took up with the most notorious transvestite in France, rarely gave public performances and, despite a life of ill-health, wrote some of the deepest and most powerful music ever written? How exactly did a young Polish boy rise to such heady heights?

    For four years, Phil Grabsky has travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin.

    By talking to acclaimed musical historians such as Jeremy Siepmann and bringing to the screen performances by such esteemed musicians as Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Vogt, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and Kevin Kenner he hopes to answer those questions.

    Renowned stage and screen star Juliet Stevenson provides narration. David Dawson brings life to the letters of Chopin himself.

  • Royal Ballet: The Dream / Symphonic Variations / Marguerite and Armand (Live)

    Runtime:      Rating: LIVE

    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.

Not least the universally adored David in Florence, the Sistine Chapel in Rome and the Manchester Madonna (today at the National Gallery). This major new film goes to the heart of just who was this tempestuous, passionate but much loved genius.

  • Opera de Paris: La Cenerentola (Live)

    Runtime: 190 mins     Rating: LIVE

    "Before the carnival is over, all Rome will love my Cinderella…" Thus spoke Rossini in 1817, in the aftermath of the disastrous opening night, firmly convinced that his pumpkin would be transformed into a sumptuous carriage. The future was to prove him right. However, in moving from Perrault's tale to the opera, the humble servant who dreams of going to the ball has lost all her magical attributes: here there is no fairy godmother to transform mice into horses, rats into coachmen and lizards into footmen with a wave of her wand. And it is not a fur slipper but a bracelet that the beauty leaves behind for her prince, quite deliberately, challenging him to find her again. The Enlightenment had lit its fires throughout Europe and La Cenerentola focused on the burning issues of the day, confronting social divisions to reveal the crinoline beneath the rags. Guillaume Gallienne, member of the Comédie-Française, stages his first opera.

    Runtime:      Rating: LIVE

    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.
