Exhausted after a day of unsuccessful auditions for the female lead in his new play, writer/ director Thomas broods over his lack of success. No actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the female character, a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave. He is about to leave the theatre when Vanda bursts in, a whirlwind of erratic energy. Thomas is not impressed by this overly-assertive and questionably-talented actress but eventually agrees to let her try out for the part. Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, who adapted it together with Roman Polanski. ... read less

Giorgio is confident he’d never betray his comrades even if caught - but not everyone can be sostrong. A landmark of Italian neorealism, often cited as one of the greatest films ever made, Rossellini’s portrait of life under the Nazi Occupation remains remarkable for its sheer immediacy, tension and power. Made in extraordinarily straitened circumstances immediately after the liberation of Rome, its emotional punchremains undiminished. ... read less

At one of her brilliant supper parties, the beautiful but frail demi-mondaine, Violetta Valéry, meets the well-born Alfredo Germont, and for love of him abandons her feverish life of pleasure. Alfredo’s father intrudes on their idyllic existence in the country and, although realizing her sincerity, persists in his demand that Violetta renounce Alfredo. Violetta determines to make the sacrifice and departs, leaving only a note for Alfredo. She appears at a ball in Flora’s house on the arm of an old admirer, Baron Douphol, to the fury of Alfredo. The two men play at cards; Alfredo wins consistently. Unable to persuade Violetta to go with him, Alfredo insults her and is challenged by the Baron. Violetta becomes ill, and all her friends desert her, leaving her virtually penniless. Alfredo at last returns. His father has told him of Violetta’s noble renunciation, and urged him to seek her forgiveness. Overjoyed at the sight of him, Violetta attempts to rise. But it is too late. As Germont and the doctor enter, Violetta dies in Alfredo’s arms. ... read less

First performed in London in the depths of WW2 (the theatre was so cold, the players wore mittens) in the intervening 70 years A Child of Our Time has come to hold a very special place in the hearts of audiences all over the world and continues to moves us to tears. The work is programmed constantly, especially in Germany, where the aspiration at the heart of the score, I would know my shadow and my light, so shall I at last be whole, has a particularly powerful resonance. Tippett's integration of five Spirituals, like the Chorales in Bach's Passions, draws its performers and audience together in a simple yet overwhelming sense of shared experience. ... read less
