National Theatre Live: A Midsummer Night's Dream
October 19 & 23
National Theatre Live: A Midsummer Night's Dream(2019)
‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.

Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

Moonlight Sonata: Deafness in Three Movements w/ Q&A(2019)
Filmmaker Event Presentation with Q&A.
Director Irene Taylor Brodsky once again turns the camera on her deaf parents and, now, her 11-year-old deaf son Jonas, who has cochlear implants and is discovering a profound world of hearing and music. As Jonas learns the first movement of Beethoven's iconic sonata on the piano, his grandparents, deaf for nearly 80 years, watch with deepening awe what time and technology have bestowed their grandson. But when Jonas struggles with the sound of his mistakes, Beethoven's own musical journey comes to life in an animated world of watercolor and haunting soundscapes. As the great composer loses the sense that brought him so much music and fame, Jonas's grandfather Paul loses his grasp on his mind. Their lives weave a sonata over three centuries, about all we can discover once we push beyond what has been lost.
Presented with open captions. The Q&A's will be ASL Interpreted.
Sally Taylor and Paul Taylor, subject of the film, will be available on Friday 10/25 to introduce and offer Q&A following the film.

Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite artist.

Wizard of Oz (1939), The 80th Anniversary(2019)
Routinely referenced on countless lists as one of the greatest things ever put to celluloid, THE WIZARD OF OZ isn't great because it was an achievement for its time--it's great because it is a wholly inescapable whirlwind of excellence. It's the movie kids beg to see over and over again and the film adults routinely need to revisit just to remind them just how magical a movie can be.

Dorothy is a young farm girl in rural Kansas living with her aunt and uncle. After a dust-up between Dorothy's trusty dog Toto and the evil Miss Gulch, the sheriff orders the canine be destroyed. Dorothy flees and, in her escape, finds herself caught up in a tornado that whisks her away to the mystical land of Oz, where music, munchkins, lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) await her.

Dorothy's absolute purity of heart is countered by the wretchedly awful Wicked Witch of the West in one of the greatest good versus evil battles of all time. After an inadvertent house-crushing of the Wicked Witch's sister, Dorothy must flee to the Emerald City to speak to the Wizard of Oz and get herself gone before the Wicked Witch gets a hold of her precious and all-powerful ruby red slippers.

Gone with the Wind 80th Anniversary(2019)
THE 80TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CONTROVERSIAL CLASSIC
Based on Margaret Mitchell's bestseller, GONE WITH THE WIND was the most talked-about movie of its era. A sweeping epic on the grandest of scales, it quickly became both a blockbuster (it held the title of highest grossing film ever for 27 years) and an Oscar magnet, winning eight Academy Awards and two honorary awards, a record in its day. The combustible passion between Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) was hotter than the flames of Atlanta and defined cinematic romance for generations to come. Its impact on American culture was enormous and enduring.

But even when it premiered, GONE WITH THE WIND attracted controversy, with some critics condemning its celebration of the Old South and its depictions of African-American characters. Walter Francis White, executive secretary for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, tried to shame actress Hattie McDaniel when she collected the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Mammy. McDaniel, noting that her own grandmother had worked on a Tara-style plantation, famously responded, "I would rather make $700 a week playing a maid than being one." The NAACP also conferred with producer David O. Selznick to modify certain scenes and remove racially charged language. Even so, the film drew protesters in many cities.

How should we view GONE WITH THE WIND on its 80th anniversary? Can we appreciate it as a legendary and beloved movie while acknowledging its sometimes problematic themes and attitudes? What does its enduring popularity say about us? How has its rosy view of plantation life, slavery, and the pre-Civil War South affected the public perception of that culture? These are topics worth thinking about.

Spectacular in scope and brimming with enormous emotions, GONE WITH THE WIND is very much a product of its time, and yet the same questions and concerns it raised decades ago are as relevant as ever today.

Royal Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty
March 1
Royal Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty(2020)
The Sleeping Beauty holds a special place in The Royal Ballet’s repertory. It was the ballet with which the Company reopened the Royal Opera House in 1946 after World War II, its first production at its new home in Covent Garden. Margot Fonteyn danced the role of the beautiful Princess Aurora in the first performance, with Robert Helpmann as Prince Florimund. Sixty years later, in 2006, the original 1946 staging was revived by then Director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason and Christopher Newton, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage.

The masterful 19th-century choreography of Marius Petipa is combined with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. Together they create an enchanting sequence of gems in the ballet repertory – from the iconic Rose Adage, when Aurora meets her four royal suitors, and the lilting Garland Waltz to the Vision Pas de deux, as Florimund sees Aurora for the first time, and the celebratory divertissements and final pas de deux that bring the ballet to its glorious close. Throughout, Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s masterful score takes ballet music to a height of passion, sophistication and intensity that arguably has never been surpassed.

Exhibition On Screen: Lucian Freud(2020)
For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.

The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.

Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show.

Richard Jones perfectly captures the blend of tragedy and comedy in La bohème, and provides an acute analysis of Puccini’s young would-be artists and their lovers, the soulful Mimì and spirited Musetta. Spectacular designs by Stewart Laing evoke both the poverty of the bohemians’ attic home and the splendour of Paris’s shopping arcades on Christmas Eve.

Puccini’s score is one of his most beautiful, with highlights including Rodolfo and Mimì’s introductory arias and love duet in Act I, ebullient music for the chorus and soloists in Act II, and Mimì’s poignant death scene, over which the composer himself wept. La bohème received its world premiere at the Teatro Regio, Turin, on 1 February 1896, and its Covent Garden premiere the following year. It is currently one of the best-loved operas worldwide, and the opera most performed at the Royal Opera House.

Exhibition On Screen: Frida Kahlo(2020)
This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.

Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.

Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.

We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman?
