Now that the winter is finally settling in, why not come in out of the cold to one of the many incredible screenings we have coming up over the next few weeks. From world-renowned opera to Shakespearean classics, there are plenty of literary and theatrical pieces to get stuck into. Check out the screening dates and trailers below.

The Entertainer: Fri 04 November, 7pm

“Branagh rises to the occasion with a performance that is never less than thoroughly arresting” ★★★★  The Independent

Set against the backdrop of post-war Britain, John Osborne’s modern classic conjures the seedy glamour of the old music halls for an explosive examination of public masks and private torment. Rob Ashford directs Kenneth Branagh as Archie Rice in the final production for his Plays at the Garrick season.

The Royal Ballet Live: Anastasia: Sat 05 November, 7.15pm

“A fascinating, flawed work about a fascinating, flawed character” ★★★ The Stage

Events overtake the young Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov and her family: World War I is declared, and then the Russian Revolution brings their privileged lives to an end. Kenneth MacMillan’s full-length ballet is a compelling exploration of identity in the turbulent wake of the Russian Revolution.

Met Opera: Don Giovanni: Mon 07 November, 6.55pm

Three charismatic singers, Simon Keenlyside, Ildar Abdrazakov, and Mariusz Kwiecien, share the role of the title hero, who goes to hell in a dazzling coup de théâtre. The ensemble of great Mozartean singers includes Isabel Leonard, Angela Meade, Matthew Polenzani, Marina Rebeka, Erwin Schrott, Ramón Vargas, and Rolando Villazón. Fabio Luisi and Plácido Domingo conduct. This gripping second offering from the autumn season of the met opera is one not to miss.

RSC Live: King Lear: Tue 08 November, 7pm

“Antony Sher is unbearably moving as the volatile king, in Gregory Doran’s stellar production full of standout performances”  ★★★★ The Guardian

King Lear has ruled for many years. As age begins to overtake him, he decides to divide his kingdom amongst his children, living out his days without the burden of power. Misjudging his children’s loyalty and finding himself alone in the wilderness, he is left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point.

Alan Bennett’s Diaries Live: Wed 16 November, 6pm

Known to audiences around the world for his distinguished career as a playwright (The History Boys) and screenwriter (The Lady In The Van), Alan Bennett’s Diaries Live is a one-on-one Q&A, promising a rare insight into the life of an icon of modern British culture. His previous collection of diaries, Keeping On Keeping On, is available to hear on BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week webpage.
