Joyce DiDonato and Vittorio Grigolo lead the cast with the Royal's Antonio Pappano in the pit in Benoit Jacquot's sumptuous production of Massenet's operatic tragedy of duty and desire. There is no other opera quite like Werther. The music comes in the wake of French grand opera and is influenced by Wagner, but paradoxically the drama is as intimate as any — no chorus, no public grandstanding, just two characters probing each other's emotions. Although both are new to their roles (neither had previously performed them on stage), DiDonato and Grigolo do not disappoint. This latest Royal On Screen event offers an exceptional opportunity to witness two of the world's top ten opera artists locked in impassioned musical embrace. London's Financial Times proclaims: "WERTHER is one of the high points of Romantic opera. The emotional temperature hits boiling point. The air sizzles. And, no other pair has set the stage alight here as they do."

ZappaEat That Question:
Frank Zappa in His Own Words
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Born in 1940, FRANK ZAPPA - self-taught composer, musician, bandleader, producer and independent thinker -first transcribed his avant-garde, Varese-influenced compositions onto paper at fourteen. He only began to write lyrics in his early twenties. Nevertheless, upon the '66 release of his debut album, FREAK OUT! (with THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION), he swiftly became the most quotable voice of dissent in popular music.

A subtle, skillful montage constructed solely from historic footage, EAT THAT QUESTION- FRANK ZAPPA IN HIS OWN WORDS is an energetic celebration of this outspoken maestro. Zappa died far too early, in 1993, of cancer. How important then, that such unforgettable Zappa interviews and performances across three decades have been painstakingly gathered by director Thorsten Schutte from the obscure vaults of TV stations around the world to create this unique 90 minute feature documentary. Following Zappa from clean-shaven, besuited youth, to fearless chief freak, to his relentlessly productive final days before his death at 52, this new film seats us right up front from the start; close enough to Zappa to read the flickering emotions in his eyes.item11

Ralph Fiennes returns to the Almeida after 16 years to play Shakespeare’s most notorious villain opposite Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Margaret in an emotionally wrought staging directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold. War-torn England is reeling after years of bitter conflict. King Edward is ailing, and as political unrest begins to stir once more, Edward’s brother Richard – vicious in war, despised in peacetime – awaits the opportunity to seize his brother’s crown. Through the malevolent Richard, Shakespeare examines the all-consuming nature of the desire for power amid a society riddled by conflict. Olivier-winning director Rupert Goold’s (Macbeth, King Charles III) searing new production hones a microscopic focus on the mythology surrounding a monarch whose machinations are inextricably woven into the fabric of British history.

De Palma
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma's career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito's Way , and Mission: Impossible. In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all. item7


evahessefilm4Eva Hesse
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Eva Hesse (1936-1970) is one of America s foremost postwar artists. Her pioneering sculptures, using latex, fiberglass, and plastics, helped establish the post-minimalist movement. Dying of a brain tumor at age 34, she had a mere decade-long career that, despite its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works that defy easy categorization. EVA HESSE, the first feature-length appreciation of her life and work, makes superb use of the artist's voluminous journals, her correspondence with close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, and contemporary as well as archival interviews with fellow artists (among them, Richard Serra, Robert Mangold, Dan Graham) who recall her passionate, ambitious, tenacious personality. Art critic Arthur Danto has written that her work is:  "full of life, of eros, even of comedy...Each piece vibrates with originality and mischief." The documentary captures these qualities, but also the psychic struggles of an artist who, in the downtown New York art scene of the 1960s, was one of the few women to make work that was taken seriously in a field dominated by male pop artists and minimalists.

Built between 1776 and 1778, the year of its inauguration, the teatro alla Scala in Milan has drawn major artists from the international music scene, turning immediately into the theatre of reference, the one every artist aspires to, the Mecca of music. to this day, performing at the Scala means consecrating a career in the eyes of the world.This film is a treasure trove of fascinating, timeless stories where rare archival footage intertwines with interviews with the major players on the international art and music scene, such as Daniel Barenboim, Roberto Bolle, Riccardo Chailly, Placido Domingo, Carla Fracci, Zubin Mehta, Jose Carreras and Riccardo Muti, to name but a few. Music critic John Gavazzeni wrote: 'The pillars of world Opera repertoire are Italian: Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini - composers whose works have been performed the most all over the world. The symbol of all great conductors is an Italian, Arturo Toscanini. They were all launched or consecrated in one place: at the Teatro alla Scala as well as the careers of great sopranos like Renata Tebaldi and Maria Callas, and of directors like Visconti, Zeffirelli and Strehler."

From one of the true masters of world cinema, Abbas Kiarostami's deceptive masterpiece is at times beautiful, enigmatic and funny. Set in a small mountainous village, the daily routine of its inhabitants is momentarily interrupted when a small group of outsiders on a mysterious mission arrive. As the story unfolds, we learn that the strangers are a television crew sent from Tehran to await the death of an old woman in order to cover the funeral practices of the village. Unfortunately, the village operates on its own schedule and the leader of the crew spends much of his time adjusting to it and becoming acquainted with the locals. Haunting and visually stunning, The Wind Will Carry Us is an absorbing abstract meditation on life and death and the divisions between tradition and modernity that stands among Kiarostami s best works.

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

In 2016, the Noordbrabants Museum in the Dutch city of Den Bosch held a special exhibition devoted to the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who died 500 years ago. This late-medieval artist lived his entire life in the city, causing uproar with his fantastical and utterly unique paintings in which hell and the devil always played a prominent role. In preparation for the exhibition, a team of Dutch art historians crisscrosses the globe to unravel the secrets of his art. They use special infrared cameras to examine the sketches beneath the paint, in the hope of discovering more about the artist's intentions. They also attempt to establish which of the paintings can be attributed with certainty to Bosch himself, and which to his pupils or followers. The experts shuttle between Den Bosch, Madrid and Venice, cutting their way through the art world's tangle of red tape, in a battle against the obstacle of countless egos and conflicting interests. Not every museum is prepared to allow access to their precious art works.

Alice (Rachel Weisz) is a woman with a past - multiple pasts. She's been a Portland hippie, an ER nurse, and a magician's assistant in China, changing names and identities at the drop of hat. But when she walks into a Brooklyn dinner party one night, she's recognized by Tom (Michael Shannon), who knows her not as Alice, but as Jenny, an ex-lover he hasn't seen in fifteen years. Drawn once again to the enigmatic, chameleon-like woman, Tom steals away with her into the New York City night where she introduces him to the thrills and dangers of reinventing oneself. Acclaimed filmmaker Joshua Marston (Maria Full of Grace) directs this smart, seductive investigation into the mystery of identity that explores what it means to leave everything behind and start your life over. With Kathy Bates and Danny Glover.
