The Magical World of Claude Debussy

Fantastic Journeys

Iwan concludes his homage to Claude Debussy with a programme of piano music that evokes fantastic images from across the world. In Debussy’s ‘Estampes’ and ‘Preludes’ the musical journey takes in Japanese pagodas, Spanish nightlife, Italian hills and French gardens. With the vibrant sounds of Francis Poulenc’s ‘Napoli’ suite and Emmanuel Chabrier’s rumbustious Bourrée fantasque, magical islands conjured up in pieces by John Ireland, Cyril Scott and Eric Jones, and Johannes Brahms’s gripping Seven Fantasies, this promises to be a scintillating experience.

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]

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.

Julie

by Polly Stenham after Strindberg

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.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

William Shakespeare

Down on his luck in the suburbs, John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos.

National Theatre Live

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)

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

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.
