King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.

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.

Comedie Francaise: Cyrano De Bergerac

Comedie Francaise: Cyrano De Bergerac

“When, as actors of the Troupe, we stage plays, we unconsciously wish to show off our theatre and everything that makes us love it and stay in it.”

It was in this spirit that the sociétaire of the Troupe Denis Podalydès took over the boards of the Salle Richelieu for the first time in 2006. “It is to the soul of Cyrano that I wanted to dedicate this poem. But since it has passed into you, Coquelin, it is to you that I dedicate it”, announced Edmond Rostand. The author’s most famous work came about from a collaboration with the actor Benoît Constant Coquelin, first to perform the role in 1897. The same complicity is at work more than a century later in the energy of the group led by Denis Podalydès, whose staging of Lucrèce Borgia is also on the programme this season.Comic opera, tragedy, romantic drama, farce... all genres combine to make the partition of this emblematic text of the French repertoire hum. Cyrano is not scaled down, none of its excesses are culled. To let the audience revel in its set pieces, the action is heated to boiling point in a large crucible drawing on the full potential of the Comédie-Française: “we wanted the production to come out of the belly of our theatre, out of the cellars, the attics, the flies and the spaces underneath: the whole machine.” This production won six Molière awards in 2007.

Comedie Francaise: Le Misanthrope

“When it was decided that I would stage The Misanthrope, I asked myself: why stage the classics? Why is it so important to me? I think that the person who best, and very succinctly, answered this question is Antoine Vitez: “because it is essential to work on social memory”

For Molière, 1665 – the year when The Misanthrope was written – is a year of betrayal: that of Racine, who gave his tragedy Alexander the Great to the troupe of the Hôtel de Bourgogne, after the failure of its first production by Molière’s troupe at the Théâtre du Palais-Royal. Can one detect autobiographical resonances in Alceste’s black humour, who, to hate one person, decides to hate the whole world? Clément Hervieu-Léger, a pensionnaire at the Comédie-Française who this season is staging Marivaux’s Le Petit-Maître Corrigé, explores the temperament of the “cantankerous lover”, his struggle against the weariness of self and loneliness.

The eight characters that make up this social microcosm are placed in an open space, outside a mansion that is being renovated, instead of in the cosy setting of a salon. The set is a moving space, a metaphor for what, according to the director, the repertoire should be: “evolving, completely of its century but nourished by previous centuries and already turning to the coming century. I belong to a repertory theatre, and I think that if we do not approach the works from a fresh perspective, then this repertory theatre has no reason to exist.”

Comedie Francaise: Romeo Et Juliette

Comedie Francaise: Romeo Et Juliette

A legendary play in the repertoire, over time and through the multiple adaptations it has undergone, Romeo and Juliet has come to embody the story of absolute love.

Yet beneath the accumulated layers hides a black sun of political decadence and family hatreds, rich in complex and insular characters, far removed from the romantic reading to which it has been reduced. “The collective imagination concerning the repertoire fascinates me”, comments Éric Ruf. In attempting to understand the reasons for the play’s romantic image, he discovered “a sort of ghost play, a myth so present in people’s minds that it has become self-perpetuating and centred on itself”. Indeed, this tragedy that contains some delectable moments of comedy is a play of contrasts, depicting the naivety of lovelorn teenagers, whose fervent love stems from a premonition of their fate, and the programmed violence of the Montagues and Capulets that is bloodying Verona, both families driven by an ancestral grudge whose very meaning escapes them.

Situating the action under the blazing sun of southern Italy, a part of the world where tempers easily flare, a poor Italy where dilapidated walls bear witness to a lost grandeur and where irrational fears and popular beliefs remain strong, the director unleashes the extraordinary profusion of Shakespeare’s language in all its roughness, luxuriance and humour. It is very much the author of both A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth that we find here.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN open its fifth season with Canaletto & the Art of Venice, an immersive journey into the life and art of Venice’s famous view-painter. No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto.

The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences - Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle – to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain.

Cinema-goers will embark on their very own 21st century Grand Tour, visiting the sites enjoyed by their 18th century counterparts and immortalised in Canaletto’s views - from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him.

Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his letters reveal his humour, insight and love of life.

Co-produced by Mexico’s Machete Producciones and Poland’s No Sugar Films, “La habitacion” (“Tales of Mexico”) is the sixth feature from Machete. Headed by Edher Campos and Luis Salinas, it burst onto the scene producing Michael Rowe’s “Leap Year” and then made Diego Quemada-Díez’s multi-laurelled “La jaula de oro.” A young outfit, its movies are deeply rooted in Mexico – its social issues, culture and talent – but – or hence – international in appeal and frequently made in co-production. Premiering at the Warsaw Festival and screening more recently at Mexico’s Los Cabos Festival, “Tales of Mexico” is an omnibus feature directed by eight directors: Carlos Carrera, Daniel Gimenez Cacho, Carlos Bolado, Ernesto Contreras, Alfonso Pineda Ulloa, Alejandro Valle, Iván Ávila Dueñas, and Natalia Beristain. It builds to a portrait of the patterns in Mexican history down the decades via its depiction of events in the same room from before the Mexican Revolution to the current day. Some of the most crucial periods and events of Mexico’s recent history –such as Porfirio Díaz’s epoch, the Mexican Revolution or the persecution of Asian immigrants — thread events or form their background.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Benedict Andrews

Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ ‘thrilling revival’ (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller alongside, Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney.

On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?

Serenade For Haiti

MIND REELS

Filmed over a seven-year period in Haiti, this documentary feature film captures a rare look at a country scored with poverty and a history of political violence and finds a story of transcendence and great humanity as the children and faculty of the Sainte Trinité Music School turn to music to unlock the power of their own lives. When a catastrophic earthquake completely destroys the school in 2010, a stunned and devastated faculty and student body must pick up the pieces and find a way to adapt. Devotion to each other and to the possibilities that the future still holds for them are expressed in the footage of children rehearsing in the rubble and in the rich musical heritage they have inherited. Journeying into Haiti’s beautiful and diverse rural regions and venturing deep into the streets of Port-au-Prince before and after the 2010 earthquake, Serenade for Haiti brings to the screen an unforgettable and vivid tableau of this widely misunderstood country. The soundtrack features the stunning music of Haiti's great composers who until this time have been largely unknown to international audiences

Stage Russia HD (Vakhtangov Theatre): Rimas Tuminas' reimagining of Anton Chekhov's tale about broken illusions and dashed hopes is freed from its traditional trappings, leaving behind a battlefield for passions and colliding ambitions, We are given an empty space from which life has departed, a theatre space with grey slips, a plaster of Paris lion – a symbol of Petersburg, perhaps the ancestor who built the house came from there, a workbench made out of rough boards, an old sofa, several chairs of different colors. This "Uncle Vanya" is about what Chekhov’s characters think and what they admit to only at moments of emotional turmoil. They are at times tongue-tied or overly brutal, but their revelations break out of them fervently, desperately  just as a man breaks out of a stuffy room into the open air. A Golden Mask Winner for Best Drama, featuring the inimitable Sergey Makovetskiy as Voynitsky.

The Opera House

The Opera House

The Opera House, a new film by multiple Emmy Award–winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke, surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera’s rich history and a time of great change for New York. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, stills, and recent interviews, the film chronicles the creation of the Met’s storied home of the last 50 years, against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. Amongst the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber’s Anthony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious General Manager, who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized.
