Directed by British filmmaker Michael Radford, Nineteen Eighty-Four is the second film adaptation of the George Orwell novel. The film is set during April of 1984 in post-atomic war London, the capital city of the repressive totalitarian state of Oceania. Winston Smith (John Hurt) is a government bureaucrat whose job is rewriting history and erasing people from existence. While his co-worker Parsons (Gregor Fisher) seems content to follow the state's laws, Winston starts to write in a secret diary despite the fact the Big Brother is watching everyone at all times by way of monitors. He silently suffers and tries to comprehend his oppression, which forbids individual human behaviors such as free thinking and sex. He meets Julia (Suzanna Hamilton), who works for the Ministry of Truth, and they engage in a stoic love affair. They are soon found out, and Winston is interrogated and tortured by his former friend O'Brien (Richard Burton in his final film appearance).~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, the screenplay is by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Bill Condon and Stephen Chbosky and is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

This year, the Bolshoi Ballet closes its season with the première of A Hero of Our Time, a unique collaboration between choreographer Yuri Possokhov and theatre director Kirill Serebrennikov. The Bolshoi’s artistic director Sergei Filin suggested the two work together on a new ballet, and Serebennikov suggested Mikhail Lermontov’s novel as the subject. They adapted three out of the five short stories in the book for the Bolshoi’s new stage. The result of this collaboration is an interesting and innovative ballet, but also one that is beset by the complexity of the story.

Royal Opera Ballet: Jewels

Royal Opera Ballet: Jewels

George Balanchine’s glittering ballet Jewels was inspired by the beauty of the gem stones he saw in the New York store of jewellers Van Cleef & Arpels. He went on to make history with this, the first abstract three-act ballet, first performed in 1967 by New York City Ballet. Jewels was performed in full by The Royal Ballet for the first time in 2007, using costume designs from the original NYCB production and new set designs by Jean-Marc Puissant.

Each of the three movements draws on a different stone for its inspiration and a different composer for its sound. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the lyricism of ‘Emeralds’. The fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet in ‘Diamonds’, with the splendour of Imperial Russia and Tchaikovsky’s opulent Third Symphony. Each section salutes a different era in classical ballet’s history as well as a distinct period in Balanchine’s own life. Through it all, Balanchine displays his genius for combining music with visionary choreography.

Bear witness as Shakespeare’s most poetic love story comes to vivid life in cinemas nationwide. Vowing to devote themselves to study, the King of Navarre and his courtiers Dumaine, Longaville and Berowne swear off the company of women for three years. But no sooner is their oath taken than it is put to the test when four attractive young women – the Princess of France and her companions Katharine, Maria and Rosaline – arrive on a diplomatic mission. Meanwhile, an eccentric Spanish nobleman, Don Armado, has become infatuated with a country wench, Jaquenetta. In the ensuing flurry of mix-ups and masquerades, it becomes clear that not all of life’s lessons can be learned from books.

SpectiCast is proud to present this Stratford Festival production, helmed by Tony and Olivier award-winning director John Caird. A coming-of-age story unlike any other, Love’s Labour’s Lost dwells sweetly on the naiveté of youth while leading its protagonists to understand the true meaning – and cost – of love. This “sublime” (Toronto Star) “masterpiece” (National Post) was called “the most vibrant production of the play I’ve ever seen” (am New York).

These weird sisters greet Macbeth as Thane of Cawdor – a title belonging to one of the vanquished rebels – and predict he will subsequently become king. When Duncan quickly rewards Macbeth with the executed Cawdor’s title, Macbeth – with the encouragement of his ambitious wife – begins to contemplate fulfilling the second part of the sisters’ prophecy by taking his destiny into his own murderous hands.
