The Tivoli is proud to bring you the filmed production of Julie Taymor’s critically acclaimed stage version of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy about love and obsession, jealousy and magic which opened to rave reviews at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Its stellar cast included David Harewood (Homeland, Blood Diamond), Kathryn Hunter (Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix), Tina Benko (The Avengers) and Max Casella (Blue Jasmine).

Taymor, the visionary director of the smash hit Broadway show ‘The Lion King’ and films such as Frida and Beyond the Universe collaborated with cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto (Wolf of Wall Street, Argo) and Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal (Heat, Frida) to create an immersive, inventive cinematic experience to bring this critically lauded, sell-out show to the big screen.

Julie Taymor says :“This is one of Shakespeare's most joyful plays, celebrating every aspect of love in all of its glory. It was amazing to be able to interpret that not only in the stage production but now also transform it into a film. Instead of just having multiple cameras recording a live performance we were able to add days of shooting where we could control the setups. We literally shot on stage with moving cameras and steadicam in order to have a dynamic and immersive energy to the scenes and to show angles, close-ups and reaction shots, shots the live audience could never see. Our cameras were literally everywhere, and in post production, we had the time to edit the material as one would with a normal film while Elliot Goldenthal, the composer, could add additional music created specifically for the film.

This A Midsummer Night's Dream is a new hybrid of film and theater where the best of both worlds has the opportunity to join forces and create a unique new form of entertainment.

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.

The third of the Globe's Roman Tragedies, ANTONY & CLEOPATRA picks up Antony's story many years after Julius Caesar. Virtue and vice, transcendent love and realpolitik combine in Shakespeare's greatest exploration of the conflicting claims of sex and power, all expressed in a tragic poetry of breath-taking beauty and magnificence.

The Globe's 2014 envisioning of this iconic play encapsulates these themes whilst deftly threading a sense of comedy throughout, and Olivier Award-winner Eve Best's Cleopatra "kisses the audience" (Guardian) with her "magnetically humorous" (Evening Standard) performance.item1e1

The Royal presents a new production of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's furiously impassioned operatic satire on consumerism. This major work from the remarkable partnership of playwright and poet Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill, Mahagonny was first performed in Leipzig in 1930. Its first ever Royal Opera staging, by Associate Director of Opera John Fulljames, is sung in English,and conducted by Mark Wigglesworth – recently announced as the successor to Edward Gardner as Music Director of English National Opera.

Mahagonny is a satire on money, morality and pleasure seeking among the dubious citizens of a fictional city. The richly varied, jazz-infused score, influenced by ragtime music, includes such irresistible melodies as the ‘Alabama Song’ and many dramatic ensembles. The superb cast includes Kurt Streit as the wild lumberjack Jimmy, Christine Rice as his sweetheart Jenny, Anne Sofie von Otter in a welcome return to The Royal Opera as the cunning Leokadja Begbick, and Peter Hoare and Willard W. White as her helpers and fellow-fugitives Fatty and Moses.item1e1a

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.
