Orlando (PG)

Orlando

Orlando is a story of the quest for love, and it is also an ironic dance through English history. Addressing contemporary concerns about gender and identity, the film is remarkably true to the spirit of Virginia Woolf, but it also skilfully adapts the original story to give it a striking, cinematic form. The screenplay is a standard text taught in film schools as a radical and successful adaptation of a classic work. Orlando is a bold, unsentimental re-working of Virginia Woolf's classic novel in which an innocent aristocrat journeys through 400 years of English history first as a man, then as a woman.

Royal Ballet: Flight Pattern Triple Bill

TWO RECENT WORKS AND ONE WORLD PREMIERE SHOWCASE THE CONTEMPORARY FACE OF THE ROYAL BALLET.


The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

Royal Ballet: Romeo and Juliet

SHAKESPEARE’S STAR-CROSSED LOVERS ENCOUNTER PASSION AND TRAGEDY IN KENNETH MACMILLAN’S 20TH-CENTURY BALLET MASTERPIECE.


Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

MUSIC: SERGEI PROKOFIEV

Royal Opera: Faust (TBC)

Royal Opera: Faust

EXPERIENCE THE DECADENCE AND ELEGANCE OF 1870S PARIS IN DAVID MCVICAR’S SPECTACULAR PRODUCTION OF GOUNOD’S BEST-LOVED OPERA.


There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.


MUSIC: CHARLES-FRANÇOIS GOUNOD

DIRECTOR: DAVID MCVICAR

CONDUCTOR: DAN ETTINGER

FAUST: MICHAEL FABIANO

MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS: ERWIN SCHROTT

Tarset First Thursdays has been running for 14 years at Tarset Village Hall on the first Thursday of the month - the season typically runs from September to May, taking a break in the summer.


The idea is to present films from different periods and cultures that will have popular appeal, whilst still being slightly unusual and perhaps not ones that have had a wider showing in cinemas. However, this is not sacrosanct, some of the classics that have been shown in the past suggest that these are very popular too. Films start at 7.30pm and admission is £4. A licensed bar is usually available.

The Mule (15)

The Mule

World War 2 veteran turned horticulturist Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) is fighting a losing battle trying to keep his failing florist business above water. When the opportunity for a job as a drug smuggler for the cartel arises, Earl jumps at the chance for the easy money.


Smuggling vast amounts of cocaine over the Mexican-US border in his pick-up truck, Earl proves to be a talented drug mule and finds himself getting deeper into the cartel, becoming responsible for trafficking heavier and more valuable loads.


But nobody runs forever.


Years of success has made Earl a cartel legend, but his escapades have also drawn heavy attention from the unwavering DEA agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper).


Past decisions begin to weigh heavily on Earl’s conscience. With his life in constant danger and his family in tatters, he considers betraying the cartel for a chance at redemption – after one more job.


Starring and directed by Clint Eastwood (American Sniper), Bradley Cooper (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Michael Peña (Narcos: Mexico), join this retelling of the extraordinary true story of the investigation into the world’s oldest drug mule and the part he played in the notorious Sinaloa cartel.
