Alongside Balanchine’s Palais de Cristal, set to music by Bizet, Benjamin Millepied adapts Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé. Philippe Jordan will be accompanying the Paris Opera Ballet for the first time.

This encounter between two great French composers and two choreographers from the New York City Ballet, its founder George Balanchine and former student Benjamin Millepied, highlights the similarities and dissonances between them. In 1947, George Balanchine paid tribute to the company and to the French tradition with his first production for the Paris Opera Ballet, Le Palais de Cristal, in which he choreographed an early work by Georges Bizet, the Symphony in C. Characterized by its architectural design and sense of dialogue with the music, this ballet is a model of academic virtuosity, to which Christian Lacroix, an artisan of light and color, has brought new shape. Benjamin Millepied’s third creation for the Paris Opera Ballet, in collaboration with the conceptual artist Daniel Buren, revisits the myth of Daphnis and Chloé. In the tradition of Balanchine, Millepied draws his inspiration from the rhythms and colors of Ravel’s “choreographic symphony” for chorus and orchestra. Accompanying the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet for the first time, Philippe Jordan conducts these masterpieces of French music.

The Royal Ballet The Dream - Symphonic Variations - Marguerite and Armand three ballets

The Royal Ballet Brings It’s Celebrations Of 70 Years At The Royal Opera House To A Close With A Mixed Programme Of Works By Its Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton.

This gorgeous mixed programmer demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton’s adaption of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton’s first work after world War II, and one of the Company’s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us all through Verdi’s opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev in 1963.

Karl Marx City

New York Times Critic’s Pick: A smart, highly personal addition to the growing syllabus of distressingly relevant cautionary political tales. Political Repression, Made Personal. A.O.Scott, The New York Times, 3/29/2017

Theatrical release in New York, Film Forum March 29 – April 25, 2017 WHERE ELSE TO WATCH IN NORTH AMERICA

The Leonard Lopate Show, 03/29/2017

“A hypnotic work of cinematic autobiography that leverages one woman’s fear to exhume the paranoia that once defined an entire country.”, David Ehrlich, Indiewire 3/28/2017

“[A] must-see… An essayistic, quietly moving look at another lost world… The movie

draws you in quickly with its intelligence, its restrained emotions and its jaw-dropping

period material, which includes some wildly creepy Stasi surveillance imagery.”, Manohla Dargis, The New York Times 10/10/2016

“Karl Marx City offers eerie parallels to the rise in surveillance today. (It) makes for a particularly resonant warning from the not-so-distant past… doesn’t have a whiff of the narcissism that plagues so many first-person documentaries. Epperlein offers Karl Marx City as her own act of painful transparency, an essential warning about what happens to societies when ordinary citizens are being watched.” Scott Tobias, Variety 9/20/2016

“A compelling family mystery wrapped in Cold War history. Dozens of documentaries have been made about the repressive Communist regimes of the former Eastern bloc, but few have been as visually striking or as deeply personal as Karl Marx City. Part espionage thriller¨ part family memoir, and part timely warning about the dangers of state surveillance. A key joy of Karl Marx City is its strong, arty aesthetic.” Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter 9/11/2016

Included in “Fifteen Films Not to Miss” at the NYFF “More than a movie about one family’s history, or even about one country’s history, this is a fascinating conversation about history itself, the very act of forgetting, and the persistence of memory.” Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice 9/29/2016

“Karl Marx City is a stunner — an impressively inventive take on the personal doc that, with the sinister banality of its archival footage, expands from the personal to the political before concluding with a breathtakingly perfect ending.” Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker Magazine 10/14/2016

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). Starring Ruby Joy, Mike Shara, Sarah Afful, Juan Chioran, Josue Laboucane, Tom Rooney and Sanjay Talwar, “it’s impossible to say who gives the most delicious performance in this comic feast” (Torontoist).

Fundraising Event for Uncommon Law'

On October 8th 2014, the 20th anniversary of his 1994 crime bill, President Clinton predicted that sentencing reform would become one of the hot-button issues in 2016. “We basically took a shotgun to a problem that needed a .22,” he admitted. Over twenty years later, we’re dealing with the consequences of “tough on crime”: heavily overpopulated prisons, a dearth of educational programming and reentry services, and a recidivism rate of over 70% in California.

Chief among these problems is our treatment of juvenile offenders. While juvenile crime has steadily decreased since 1994, we’ve continued to pass tougher and tougher juvenile crime laws. In California, juveniles between the ages of 14-17 can be tried as adults and receive sentences longer than their natural life expectancy.

The message rings loud and clear: these kids are lost, defined by and no better than their worst act. But due to recent advances in brain science and a handful of Supreme Court decisions, we have started to once again see juveniles as different from adults.

In the last three years, California has passed the first two bills in three decades (the second of which we followed for this film) to decrease juvenile sentences. This movement has re-sparked a national debate over the very nature of our most violent juvenile offenders. The only group silent from the debate are the minors themselves. This film gives them a voice.

A list of juvenile sentencing reform legislation passed in California since 2012:

SB-9 (2012): Eliminates the “life without parole” sentence for juvenile offenders (except for those with special circumstances).

SB-260 (2013): Provides parole board hearings at 15 or 25-years for juvenile offenders tried as adults.

SB-261 (2015): Expanding the age of those eligible for SB-260 to 22-years old, affecting an additional 16,000 inmates.

California is a leader in sentencing reform for juveniles. This film showcases that success and the need for second chance opportunities for juvenile offenders nationwide.
