Royal Opera House Encore screening

The Magic Flute

Sunday 24 September
Pamoja Hall   2.00pm
Tickets £18.50, £17 concessions & £10 child/full-time student   Book tickets

Mozart's glorious opera The Magic Flute is brought enchantingly to life in David McVicar's production with beautiful sets by John Macfarlane. This classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart's work.

The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies.

As well as being a comedy, The Magic Flute is an expression of Mozart's profound spiritual beliefs; Enlightenment concerns with the search for wisdom and virtue are at the heart of this enchanting tale. The Magic Flute was an instant success with audiences and Mozart's supposed rival Salieri described it as an 'operone' - a great opera.

Julia Jones conducts this spellbinding production with a wonderful cast including Roderick Williams as Papageno.

Opera in two acts, approximate running time 3 hours 10 minutes (including one interval) Sung in German with English surtitles


The Royal Opera Encore Screening

La Bohème

Sunday 8 October
Pamoja Hall   2.00pm
Tickets £18.50, £17 concessions & £10 child/full-time student   Book tickets

First performed in Covent Garden in 1897, La Bohème has been performed there more than 500 times since. Puccini's romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world. Director Richard Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to one of the best-loved of all operas, visualised in Stewart Laing's spectacular, stylised 1850s setting.

Opera in four acts. Approximate running time: 2 hours 35 minutes including one interval. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.


Royal Ballet Encore (screening)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Sunday 29 October  
Pamoja Hall    2.00pm
Tickets £18.50, (£17 concessions & £10 child/full-time student)  Book tickets

Christopher Wheeldon's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography. Joby Talbot's score combines contemporary sound-worlds with sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob Crowley's wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs draw on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real.

Approximate running time 2 hours 50 minutes including 2 intervals.


Royal Ballet Encore (screening)

The Nutcracker

Sunday 10 December
Pamoja Hall   2.00pm
Tickets £18.50 (£17 concessions & £10 child/full-time student)   Book tickets

Peter Wright's nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov's 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky's sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognisable of all ballet scores.

Approximate running time: 2 hours 15 minutes, including one interval
