ROH Live: A Winter's Tale (Ballet)
Following his delightful full-length ballet Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,  Christopher Wheeldon continues his highly successful collaboration with designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby Talbot to create his first ballet based on a Shakespeare play, the late romance The Winter’s Tale. The story follows the destruction of marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child, and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet through remorse and regret – and after a statue comes miraculously to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. It is powerful material for ballet, with a story that allows for the portrayal of intense emotions between and within the characters, and the opportunity for the Company to create not just new central characters but the whole world around them.

Following its smash-hit live broadcast in 2012, the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time returns to cinemas.


Based on the acclaimed novel by Mark Haddon, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time has been hailed by The Times as ‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle’.

Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play.

Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs Shears’ dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

NT Live: A Small Family Business

A riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval). A Small Family Business returns to the National Theatre for the first time since its celebrated premiere in 1987, when it won the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.

Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But
not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s
business he’s approached by a private detective armed with
some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as
he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers,
looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant
self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre
climax.

Broadcast ENO Live: Benvenuto Cellini
Tuesday 17 June7pm
ENO Live

Terry Gilliam directs a live performance of Berlioz’s vibrant, swashbuckling opera based on the autobiography of the 16th centurys culptor and goldsmith at the London Coliseum.

Tenor Michael Spyres sings the title role opposite soprano Corinne Winters as his lover Teresa,conducted by Edward Gardner. Unseen in London for many years, and never previously at ENO, Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini is forged anew at the London Coliseum by director Terry Gilliam and ENO Music Director Edward Gardner – the identical pairing responsible for the company’s award-winning The Damnation of Faust in 2011. That production unleashed Gilliam’s inexhaustible imagination as a story-teller of the first order, and Benvenuto Cellini offers this theatrical showman an equally rich canvas simply begging for his special flair.

With its stunning visual and musical set pieces such as the Mardi Gras carnival, Berlioz’s first completed opera is based on the autobiography of celebrated 16th-century goldsmith and sculptor Benvenuto Cellini. Two entwined plots – Cellini’s love for Teresa and his triumphant fulfilment of a commission to cast a bronze statue of Perseus– provide the framework for some of Berlioz’s most vibrant, swashbuckling and tender music, against a plot of thwarted love, elopment, intrigue, disguise, mistaken identity, secular merry-making and sacred ceremony.

A stellar cast has been assembled for this significant new production, led by rising tenor Michael Spyres in the title role, with the stunning soprano Corinne Winters (last season’s acclaimed Violetta) as Cellini’s lover, Teresa.

ENO favourite Willard White returns to the company to add Pope Clement VII to his already extensive list of roles.

Tuesday 24 June6.45pm

ROH Live: Manon Lescaut (Opera)


Sung in Italian

This early Puccini masterpiece makes a welcome return to Covent Garden after an absence of over 20 years, in a new production by Jonathan Kent under the baton of Music Director Antonio Pappano. The exciting Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais sings the title role. A consummate Puccini soprano, Opolais caused a sensation as Madama Butterfly in 2011, and with Manon Lescaut, the bold but impressionable heroine, we will see a very different side of her character. She is matched in star power by Jonas Kaufmann as her lover, Des Grieux, and Christopher Maltman as her cynical brother Lescaut. This is a much anticipated new production, and Kent’s vision of a young girl who faces temptation in the big city will surely resonate with today’s audience.

Manon Lescaut: Kristine Opolais, Geronte de Ravoir: Maurizio Muraro,  Lescaut: Christopher Maltman  Edmondo: Benjamin Hulett,  Chevalier des Grieux: Jonas Kaufmann,  Royal Opera Chorus, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Conductor: Antonio Pappano,  Director: Jonathan Kent, Designs: Paul Brown,  Lighting design: Mark Henderson, Choreography: Denni Sayers
