The Great Gatsby
Drama. "The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
An army of bugs summon mythical creatures known as Leaf Men to help them protect their garden from an evil spider queen. Based on a childrens book by William Joyce.

The Audience: Encore - National Theatre
Helen Mirren reprises her Academy Award winning role as Queen Elizabeth II in the highly-anticipated West End production of The Audience, broadcast live from London’s Gielgud Theatre as part of National Theatre Live.
For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace – a meeting like no other in British public life – it is private. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. The Audience breaks this contract of silence – and imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional – sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive.
From young mother to grandmother, these private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age. Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
The Audience reunites writer Peter Morgan and Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren following their collaboration on the critically-acclaimed movie sensation The Queen.
The Audience is directed by Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries.

The Royal Ballet Dances Frederick Ashton - Royal Opera House - Summer 2013 Season
La Valse fills the stage with 21 couples, spinning endlessly to Ravel’s pulsating score. It is the perfect curtain-raiser for a generous all-Ashton programme, showing the breadth of the choreographer’s inspiration, his musicality and his infallible sense of drama.
Following La Valse are two delightful short works, the first an ardent love duet set to the intermezzo from Massenet’s opera Thais, the second a Viennese whirl of a piece, set to a waltz by Johann Strauss II. Ashton’s Monotones are an otherworldly distillation of Erik Satie’s piano pieces Trois Gymnopedies.
Monotones I and II are among Ashton’s most modernist, and greatest works. Indelibly associated with Fonteyn and Nureyev, Marguerite and Armand offers audiences another opportunity to see one of Ashton’s most passionate creations, swept along by Liszt’s torrential Sonata in B minor.

Rigoletto - Royal Opera House - Summer 2013 Season
In Rigoletto, Verdi charts the fate of his larger-than-life characters – the tormented jester trying to avenge himself on his heartless playboy employer the Duke of Mantua, who has carelessly seduced Rigoletto’s innocent daughter Gilda – in music of immense theatrical punch and instant memorability.
The score’s most celebrated highlights – the Duke’s Questa o quella and La donna è mobile and Gilda’s Caro nome – are among the best known set-pieces in all opera. First seen in 2001, David McVicar’s production teems with life and colour and with Tanya McCallin’s period costumes and Michael Vale’s starkly effective sets, it provides an ideal frame for Verdi’s exploration of love, emotional betrayal and the darkest revenge.

The Taming Of The Shrew - The Globe Theatre London (globe On Screen Season 2013)

Macbeth - Royal Opera House - Summer 2013 Season
Verdi’s lifelong love affair with Shakespeare first took flight with Macbeth in 1847. Musically, the composer’s masterstrokes were the macabre choruses for the witches, the evocative orchestral colours and the increased role for the ‘ugly and evil’ Lady Macbeth.
Phyllida Lloyd’s production uses Verdi’s 1865 revision, especially noted for Lady Macbeth’s great aria ‘La luce langue’ and the wonderful Act IV opening chorus, and brings out the dark motivations of the Macbeths and the light of justice for those they wrong. Simon Keenlyside and Liudmyla Monastryrska play the Scottish nobleman and his villainously ambitious wife, who spurs her husband to murder for the sake of his career, and American bass-baritone Raymond Aceto takes the role of Banquo, murder victim and symbol of conscience.
Simon Keenlyside, Liudmyla Monastryrska and Raymond Aceto

La Fille Mal Gardee - Royal Opera House - Summer 2013 Season
The simple story of Lise, her suitor Colas and Lise’s larger-than-life mother, the Widow Simone, who tries to marry her off to the simpleton son of a rich neighbour, is full of delicious comedy but also wonderful, characterful choreography.
One of the greatest pleasures of La Fille mal gardée is the way in which the steps, though at times devilishly difficult, never get in the way of the natural, easy storytelling. The virtuoso roles of Lise and Colas combine dazzling technique with tiny, intimate details that makes their romance touching and real, while the humour of Widow Simone with her famous ‘clog dance’ and the innocent Alain, more interested in his red umbrella than Lise’s charms, is delightful.
Funny and touching, La Fille mal gardée is the perfect ballet for first-timers of all ages, but it is also one to which ballet-lovers will return again and again with renewed pleasure at every performance.

Tosca - Opera Australia 2013
Music: Giacomo Puccini
Conductor: Christian Badea & Nicholas Milton
Director: John Bell by arrangement with Bell ShakespeareLong
Puccini was a true theatre composer, using every means available to move the emotions of an audience. His aim was dramatic truth. The sweep and flow of the music propels the riveting drama of love, jealousy and sacrifice with astonishing vigour and force.
Distinguished actor/director John Bell, the artistic director of Bell Shakespeare, has joined forces with award-winning set designer Michael Scott-Mitchell and the young, emerging costume designer Teresa Negroponte to create a stark, monumental staging set in Mussolinis Italy in the 1940s.
Puccinis irresistible score features the unforgettable aria, Vissi darte, a moment of heart-breaking poignancy in a plot where Floria Tosca and Cavaradossi are embroiled in an attempt to help a friend escape from prison. The chief of police in Rome, Baron Scarpia, is himself the perpetrator of worse crimes than those he has officially to deal with. Greek sorpano Alexia Voulgaridou performs the title role and is joined by the sensational tenor Yonghoon Lee while the breathtaking baritone John Wegner plays Scarpia in the legendary love triangle. Christian Badea conducts.
