  "William Tell " NT LIVE ! [15 Classification] Sunday 5th July 2.45 pm
The famous story of a Father who is forced to shoot an apple from his son’s head during Austria’s occupation of Switzerland stars Gerald Finley in the towering title role of Tell, a man whose courage is put to the test when captured by the tyrannical Governor Gesler. The opera will be conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.
Rossini’s inspiring score is packed with magnificent arias and patriotic choruses, showcasing the power of the Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, transporting audiences from their local cinema to the mountains of Switzerland. The triumphant opening music is recognized across the world - used as the theme tune for the 1950’s classic cowboy movie, ‘The Lone Ranger’

  "Everyman" NT LIVE ! Thursday 16th July 7.00pm
Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.
One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.
Chiwetel Ejiofor takes the title role.

In the melting pot of Venice, trade is God. With its ships plying the globe, the city opens its arms to all, as long as they come prepared to do business and there is profit to be made.
With the gold flowing all is well, but when a contract between Bassanio and Shylock is broken, simmering racial tensions boil over. A wronged father, and despised outsider, Shylock looks to exact the ultimate price for a deal sealed in blood.
