Swanhilda notices her fianceé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson… The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th -century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fianceé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.

In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris in support the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way… Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi’s overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Alexei Ratmansky’s captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen’s The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage.

Journey through the life, works, and struggles of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. His existence, no less than his art, was characterized by light and shadow, contrasts and contradictions, genius and sobriety. A revolutionary artist, he was often not so beloved by his contemporaries. In search of luck – or perhaps in search of himself – he travelled Milan, Venice, Rome, and Sicily, escaping the enemies and demons he found at every turn, giving shape to masterpieces such as Bacchus, Boy with a Basket of Fruit, Saint Catherine, Judith Beheading Holofernes, and David with the Head of Goliath. Featuring a previously unseen reconstruction of the original location of the Madonna dei Palafrenieri, thanks to Vatican approval.

In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize “degenerate art,” and one, personally curated by Hitler, to glorify “classic art.” Narrated by Toni Servillo (star of Oscar® winner The Great Beauty), Hitler vs Picasso is an incredible journey through five exhibitions, displaying masterpieces by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and Gauguin. Linked to each exhibition are moving stories of those who witnessed the systematic destruction and looting of the day – from the Bernheimer family, who were forced to barter their freedom, to “Hitler’s dealer,” Cornelius Gurlitt, known to have hidden away some of the most priceless art treasures of the century. Revealing the Nazi obsession with art, Hitler vs Picasso offers viewers a rare look at condemned works that have finally come to light.

Just One Drop

Just One Drop

UN

Just One Drop tells the little known story of homeopathy: the most controversial system of medicine ever invented. Could this be nature's most potent medicine?

Homeopathy is a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to heal itself. To many, homeopathy seems implausible. They fear it is purely a placebo effect or worse, a form of deception or quackery. Yet, homeopathy has been around for over 200 years and is used by millions worldwide. The film explores the controversy, dispels myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair shake.

The film's ultimately message is about freedom of choice in healthcare.

Messiah

Messiah

Messiah returns to Bristol Old Vic following its sell-out debut at Bristol Proms in 2013.

Handel's profound religious masterpiece was wildly controversial at its Dublin premier in 1742. He insisted on the anchor alto role being sung by the disgraced divorcee actress Susannah Cibber and to have it performed in theatres and concert halls rather than churches reserved for sacred works, including its first performance at Bristol Old Vic in 1782.

Inspired by Handel's early performances of the work, this staging explores the dramatic heart of the piece, taking as its starting point the bereaved community of a messianic leader and the struggle towards faith that must have confronted them.

Staged by Tom Morris and featuring internationally-renowned soloists Catherine Wyn Rogers and Julia Doyle, The Erebus Ensemble (Songs of Hope) and Europe's most celebrated Baroque orchestra The English Concert under the revered baton of Harry Bicket, this powerfully accessible dramatised concert is a rare treat for connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.

Rfor violence, language throughout, and some sexual references

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.
