Roger Waters: The Wall
The film, with an exclusive "in conversation" with Roger Waters and Nick Mason, will have an unprecedented event cinema release across the world at 7.30 pm local time on Tuesday September 29 this year. ROGER WATERS THE WALL, which had its World Premiere at last year's Toronto Film Festival, is an event film that unfolds on many levels - as an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters' reckoning with the past and as a stirring anti-war film, highlighting the human cost of conflict. The film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters' sold-out 2010-2013 "The Wall Live" tour, seen by over 1.5 million fans across North America, 1 million fans across Latin and Central America and 1 million fans across Europe - over 4 million fans worldwide, and the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist, ever. Beyond the outstanding music, Waters continues to reflect on the impact of war on his own family as he embarks on a deeply personal pilgrimage. Woven throughout the film, the journey offers a revealing, candid portrait of a man who has been through enough, and lived in the world long enough, to be passionately and unapologetically anti-war.

Millepied/Robbins/Balanchine - Live - Opera National De Paris
Benjamin Millepied pays tribute to his masters, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, two truly great choreographers, both of Russian origin, who led the American School, and dance in general, to rarely attained heights.
Millepied has created a ballet that presents both the company and his overall project for dance at the Paris Opera. The result of an artistic collaboration with composer Nico Muhly, this highly contemporary creation also seeks to highlight the excellence of classical technique and its significance for dance today.
The Paris Opera Ballet is all the richer for the inclusion of Opus19 / The Dreamer in its repertoire. This elegant piece, imagined by Jerome Robbins in 1979, is a variation for two dancers to Sergei Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto, portraying the daydream of a young man and his unreal counterpart.
The revival of George Balanchine Thème et Variations, to music by Piotr Ilitch Tchaikovsky, offers another facet of dance from across the Atlantic. This classical and virtuoso group ballet, one of the repertoire's most demanding, also pays tribute to the Imperial Ballet of old Russia and its most famous master: Marius Petipa.

Hooked On Hits - Final Tour 2015 - Dr Hook Featuring Ray Sawyer
Oep Live ! presents
HOOKED ON HITS – FINAL TOUR
DR HOOK FEATURING RAY SAWYER
Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show, shortened in 1975 to Dr. Hook, was an American band, formed around Union City, New Jersey. They enjoyed considerable commercial success in the 1970s with hit singles including "Sylvia's Mother", "The Cover of Rolling Stone", "A Little Bit More" and "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman". In addition to their own material, Dr Hook and the Medicine Show performed songs written by the poet Shel Silverstein. The band had eight years of regular chart hits, in both the U.S. and the UK, and greatest success with their later gentler material, as Dr Hook.
When told by a club owner that they needed a name to put on a poster in the window of his establishment, Cummings made a sign: "Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show: Tonic for the Soul". The "Hook" name was inspired by Sawyer's eyepatch and a reference to "Captain Hook" of the Peter Pan fairy tale, though, humorously, because Captain Hook was neither a doctor nor wore an eyepatch. The "medicine show" and "doctor" (referring to the shows common in the 19th century) were intended as tongue-in-cheek support for drug abuse. Ray Sawyer lost an eye in a near-fatal car crash in Oregon in 1967, and has worn an eyepatch ever since. To this day, Sawyer is considered Dr. Hook because of the eyepatch he wears.

Kernow King - Minority Rapport
Wherever there is a majority, there is a minority lurking quietly around the corner, waiting to get bigger and bigger until it grows enough to become top dog, king of the hill, the group everyone wants to belong to and believes in. In 2014, Cornwall was finally granted minority status by the European Union. This status put Cornwall alongside the Celtic nations of Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The status recognises Cornwall's distinctiveness, economic interests, strengthens cultural identity and builds communities. Kernow Bys Vyken! Then, in 2015, a Conservative government swept through the Duchy with "Devonwall" on the agenda, foxes and seagulls are ruining everyone's lives and Kernow is still the poorest region in Europe. "What does this mean for Cornwall?" asks the Kernow King, "I think I know. I'll tell you at The Regal, it is funnier than what it sounds. But I'll tell you somethin' for nothin', we will be taking over the world.... dreckly".

Peter Wright's enchanting production with its wondrously growing Christmas tree and a rousing battle between the villainous Mouse King and an army of toy soldiers, mines the colour of Tchaikovsky's score, retaining exquisite surviving fragments of the original Ivanov choreography, including the beautiful pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.

The dwarfs grow to love their unexpected visitor, who cleans their house and cooks their meals.
But one day while the dwarfs are at their diamond mine, the Queen arrives at the cottage disguised as an old peddler woman and persuades Snow White to bite into a poisoned apple. The dwarfs, warned by the forest animals, rush home to chase the witch away, but they are too late to save Snow White from the poisoned apple. They place her in a glass coffin in the woods and mourn for her. The Prince, who has fallen in love with Snow White, happens by and awakens her from the wicked Queen's deathlike spell with "love's first kiss."

Iolanta / The Nutcracker - Live - Opera National De Paris
Directed for the stage by Dmitri Tcherniakov, this exceptional program combines all the talents of the Paris Opera and offers an opera and a ballet in a single evening: Tchaikovsky originally intended Iolanta and The Nutcracker to be staged together. However, since their debut performance at Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre in 1892, they have been presented separately. The composer found inspiration for his opera in Danish playwright Henrik Hertz's work recounting the romantic story of Iolanta, the blind daughter of King René. Protected by her father in his Provençal château, the princess ultimately regains her sight before marrying the gallant knight Vaudémont. The Nutcracker is based on a tale by Hoffmann adapted by Alexandre Dumas. This "fairy-tale ballet" recounts the adventures of young Clara one Christmas night, during which the nutcracker she has been given leads her into a magical world. In collaboration with stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov and conductor Alain Altinoglu, five choreographers - Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Edouard Lock, Benjamin Millepied, Arthur Pita and Liam Scarlett -will each work on a specific passage of the ballet. The role of Iolanta will be sung by Sonya Yoncheva and the Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs and Corps de Ballet will perform The Nutcracker. Like a two-sided mirror reflecting the dreams of a composer who took refuge in the realms of the imaginary, the Paris Opera is reviving the original diptych. Alain Altinoglu conducts and Dmitri Tcherniakov stages this production that symbolizes the link between opera and ballet.
- Thu 17th:
Boris Gudunov (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky's historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The originality of the composer's vision of Pushkin's play about Tsar Boris Godunov - who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 - was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated in the second version of the opera, in which Boris finally had its premiere in 1874.
Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions. Keenly awaited will be Bryn Terfel's assumption of the title role - one of the most complex characters in opera - while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.
- Mon 21st:
Alice in Wonderland
Join Alice on a magical adventure through Wonderland this Easter as she meets your favourite characters, including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and of course Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.

Featuring a professional cast, beautiful scenery and dazzling costumes you can't miss this Panto style show for the whole family! Remember the date and don't be late!
Giselle (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Giselle is the quintessential Romantic classic, a love affair that begins in the real world and continues beyond the grave. The ballet's title role also offers one of the great challenges of the ballet repertory, as Giselle transforms from an innocent peasant girl, duped into love, to a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death.
For the ballerina this is a role of two contrasting halves: in Act I she must appear naïve and artless, her dancing alive with an earthy enthusiasm; in Act II she transforms into light and air, her dancing so ethereal as to seem weightless. In Peter Wright's production, the dual aspect of the ballet is perfectly achieved: the first act dramatized in rich, naturalistic detail and the second with a spectral, moonlit beauty.

Lucia Di Lammermoor (Live) - Royal Opera House 2015/16 Season
Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers... It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera's most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti's finest works.
The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo.
