ENO Live: Carmen (Bizet)

Probably the most popular opera in the world. 

Carmen scandalised its earliest audiences with its raw depiction of lust in 19th-century Seville.

In ENO’s popular production, the action is a full-on battle of the sexes, fought out in the arena of the Spanish bullring.

Broadcast ROH Live: William Tell (Rossini opera) Sunday 5 July2.45pm
ROH Live: William Tell (Rossini opera)


Opening with what is arguably the most exciting of all operatic overtures, Rossini’s final opera helped to lay the foundations of the genre of French grand opéra that dominated European stages throughout the mid-19th century.

The opera’s theme is liberty, as exemplified in the struggle against Austrian occupation led by the Swiss archer and patriot Guillaume Tell: in the opera’s most famous scene, Tell shoots an apple from his son’s head, a feat that inspires his countrymen to revolt. Rossini’s score is one of his most outstanding, and packed with glorious arias, choruses and ensembles, as those who have heard Antonio Pappano’s admired recording – which also features Gerald Finley (Tell), John Osborn (Arnold) and Malin Byström (Mathilde) – will know. The exciting young Italian director Damiano Michieletto makes his debut with what promises to be a spectacular and thought-provoking production. 

Cast to include: William Tell - Gerald Finley, Arnold Melchtal - John Osborn,

Mathilde - Malin Byström, Hedwige - Enkelejda Shkosa,  Jemmy - Sofia Fomina,

Gesler - Nicolas Courjal

Royal Opera Chorus

Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

Broadcast NT Live: Everyman  (15) Thursday 16 July7pm

National Theatre Live:  Everyman   (15)

BAFTA winner and Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

This production contains depictions of recreational drug use and frequent uses of strong language.

RSC Live: The Merchant of Venice


We are delighted to add the Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) productions to our Live Screening programme, commencing with Polly Findlay’s (Arden of Faversham 2014) direction of Shakespeare's uncompromising tragedy, The  Merchant of Venice.

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God.  With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all, as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made.


With the gold flowing all is well, but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over.   A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.

Cast includes Patsy Ferran (Portia), Makram J Khoury  (Shylock), and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (Bassanio).

For synopsis and full cast go to here.

I’m Changing, from her home in Alabama, Lisa has been described as “a full-throated female Otis Redding, with some Muscle Shoals soul and Nashville country touches for good measure.”

Broadcast Roger Waters The Wall  (CertTBC)
Tuesday 29 September8pm


Roger Waters The Wall

An opportunity to see a preview of the film with live satellite link of in conversation with Roger Waters after the screening.

Roger Waters, co-founder and primary songwriter of Pink Floyd, fuses the epic and the personal in Roger Waters The Wall.

Written and directed by Waters and Sean Evans, and filmed during Waters’ sold-out 2010–2013 The Wall Live tour, it is a concert film that goes well beyond the stage, giving audiences a visceral sense of being present and experiencing the performance in a way that not even the best seat or backstage pass could afford.
Based on the groundbreaking concept album, Roger Waters The Wall could be called a concept film: it’s a state-of-the-art show that dazzles the senses with pyrotechnics, phantasmagoric puppets, stunning animations, audio effects and 360-degree sound, combined with an intensely personal road trip that deals with the loss Roger has felt throughout his life due to war. It’s bravura entertainment – yet it’s also a spectacle with meaning, a stirring anti-war film about the human cost of conflict.
