The Forbidden Room [12A]

The Forbidden Room [12A]

  • Thu 11th Feb, 2pm & 8pm | £5.50

In this non-linear, absurdist - though entirely accessible - collaboration from Winnipeg auteur Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson, a submarine crew, a feared pack of forest bandits, a famous surgeon, and a battalion of child soldiers all get more than they bargained for as they wend their way toward progressive ideas on life and love. The Forbidden Room is a fascinating and frolicsome experimental work. An unalloyed joy from start to finish, it’s one of the most daring and original works since Maddin’s last epic cinematic adventure.

When a lethal disease suddenly infects Kiddi’s sheep, the entire valley comes under threat. The authorities decide to cull all the animals in the area to contain the outbreak.

ROH Live: Boris Godunov [12A]

ROH Live: Boris Godunov [12A]

  • Mon 21st Mar 2016
  • 7:15pm
  • £17.50

Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Mussorgsky’s historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The originality of the composer’s vision of Pushkin’s play about Tsar Boris Godunov – who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 – was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated in the second version of the opera, in which Boris finally had its premiere in 1874. Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions. Keenly awaited will be Bryn Terfel’ assumption of the title role – one of the most complex characters in opera.

Fuelled by heat and desire, the inhabitants are driven into an unstoppable spiral of greed, lust, betrayal and revenge. Lez Brotherston’s epic design, Chris Davey’s evocative lighting and Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling take in a wealth of cinematic references, creating a powerful and uncompromising vision of small-town America.
