Borrowing heavily from the comic works of Moliére, Richard Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier presents an operatic farce set against a backdrop of luxury. At the center is the Marschallin and her much younger lover, Octavian, whom viewers meet in the throes of passion as the opera opens. The couple is interrupted by the Marschallin's cousin, Ochs, a coarse and vulgar man recently engaged to a young ingénue, Sophie. Determined to prevent the marriage and ruination of an innocent young girl, the Marschallin puts in motion events that might end up ruining her own affair in the process. What follows is a bittersweet comedy complete with trickery, revenge, cross-dressing, and pure infatuation.
This production features Renée Fleming as the Marschallin, Elina Garanca as Octavian, and Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Director Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera's subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask. The sparkling score is conducted by Sebastian Weigle.
Before the screening of Richard Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier at Guild Hall, enjoy refreshments as renowned composer and conductor Victoria Bond provides insights into the opera.
Daniel Radcliffe (the Harry Potter movies), Joshua McGuire (The Hour), and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral) star in Tom Stoppard's brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from the Old Vic Theater in London. David Leveaux's new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Stoppard's name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centrer stage. Stumbling their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare's iconic tragedy, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.
A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore, but her twin brother, Sebastian, is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Simon Godwin directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig as a transformed Malvolia and an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby, Tamara Lawrence, Doon Mackichan, and Daniel Ezra.
