MUSE: Drones World Tour


Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme, Dominic Howard

MUSE, the world renowned multi-platinum selling and multi-award winning band, embarked on their ambitious Drones World Tour in 2015-16, playing over 130 dates across the globe. Known for pushing boundaries in terms of their stage production the tour saw the band perform “in the round” from the middle of the arena, with the stage design and configuration giving fans a full 360 degree audio/visual sensory experience.

Central to the tour’s visuals were the Drones, which flew autonomously above the stage and across the audience, alongside giant projections which interacted with the band members on stage. This spectacle, featuring LEDs and lasers perfectly complimented the band’s celebrated repertoire. Key songs performed on the tour included “Psycho”, “Madness”, “Uprising”, “Plug in Baby”, “Supermassive Black Hole” and Knights of Cydonia.” 

 

Filmed and recorded over multiple shows the concert movie includes never before seen special effects along with an exclusive insight from the band in the introduction. Directors: Tom Kirk, Jan Willem Schram

 “an endless build-up, heading for one peak after another — is what a Muse concert sets out to deliver by every means available.”  [The New York Times describes the Muse live experience]

André Rieu 2018

Amore - My Tribute to Love

One of the most popular live acts in the world, the King of the Waltz André Rieu has announced that his 2018 Maastricht concerts will be screened in cinemas across the weekend of 28th – 29th July, as he performs his hometown shows this year with a celebration of love.

‘Amore - My Tribute to Love', is the renowned violinist's tribute to his love for music, and his love for both of his families; his wife and children, and of course for his Johann Strauss Orchestra, who he has performed with for over 30 years. It follows on from the release of his album ‘Amore’, which features his own versions of classic love songs, from the worlds of popular and classical music.

The unforgettable concerts that take place in André’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands are a sight to behold. Set against the incredible backdrop of the medieval town square, fans flock annually from all corners of the world to watch André perform with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, as well as sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests. The concerts are packed full of humour, fun and emotion for all ages.

Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins hosts the presentation, interviewing fans and soaking up the joyous atmosphere that bursts right through the cinema screen – as well as catching an exclusive chat with André the moment he steps off stage!

Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea) and broadcast live from the National Theatre to cinemas.

 Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival.

This new version of August Strinberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.

King Lear

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.  Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ (Daily Telegraph)

Monday 15 October7.15pm


The Royal Ballet

Mayerling

Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan

Composer Franz Liszt

Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf.

From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide.

The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballet's many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.

Die Walküre (Wagner)
Sunday 28 October5pm


The Royal Opera

Die Walküre

Richard Wagner

Wagner’s Ring cycle is one of the greatest works of all opera. Keith Warner’s production is conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, and this final revival is cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers. The full cycle's four operas journey from the beginning of a world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. This epic myth portrays every type of human emotion in music and ideas of extraordinary power. The Ring is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten.

Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is the second opera in the epic cycle, Der Ring Des Nibelungen, and features several of the Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Ride of the Valkyries. But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at the centre of this opera are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyrie daughter, Brünnhilde.

Sung in German with English surtitles

Broadcast ROH Live Ballet:

La Bayadère (Makarova)

Tuesday 13 November7.15pm

The Royal Ballet

La Bayadère

Choreography Natialia Makarova after Marius Petipa

Composer Ludvig Minkus

In Makarova's beautiful re-working of this 19th Century classical ballet we are drawn into the exotic world of Indian legend.

The tale tells the story of a beautiful temple dancer and a prince who loves her but marries another.


The famous, 'white act'', The Kindom of the Shades, is brought to life in shimmering moonlight. A corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince's lost love haunt his mind.  With this etherial act alongside a world of temple dancers and noble warriors, expect to be transported to another world.

The melody and moods of Minkus' music perfectly matches the precision of the choreography and of the storytelling.

RSC Live

Troilus & Cressida (12A)

William Shakespeare

In Shakespeare's poetic and tragic telling of the Trojan war, virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie collaborates with RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran to create a satirical futuristic vision of a world resounding with the rhythm of battle.

 "Lechery, lechery, still wars and lechery: nothing else holds fashion"

Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy their innocence is tested, and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war, with tragic consequences.

The Madness of George III (12A)
Thuesday 20 November7pm


National Theatre Live

The Madness of George  III

by Alan Bennett

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
