Günes Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu
- 1 hr. 40 mins.
photoEarly summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls' family. The family overreacts, removing all “instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives.

-
photoFollowing a sell-out run at London's Royal Court Theatre, Olivier and Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Cripple of Inishmaan, In Bruges) returns to the West End with Matthew Dunster's award-winning production of his deeply funny new play Hangmen, broadcast live to cinemas by National Theatre Live.

In his small pub in the northern English town of Oldham, Harry (David Morrissey - The Walking Dead, State of Play) is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging?

Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, his old assistant Syd (Andy Nyman - Peaky Blinders, Death at a Funeral) and the peculiar Mooney (Johnny Flynn - Clouds of Sils Maria) lurk with very different motives for their visit.

Ethan Hawke, Carmen Ejogo - 1 hr. 38 mins.

Royal Opera House: Lucia di Lammermoor (NR) 5/22/2016
Diana Damrau, Charles Castronovo -
photoLucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers. It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera's most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti's finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo.

Royal Opera House: La Traviata (NR) 6/5/2016
Venera Gimadieva, Saimir Pirgu - 3 hr. 0 mins.
photoLa Traviata is regarded as one of Verdi's finest operas, and Richard Eyre's traditional staging, is one of The Royal Opera's most popular productions. The opera tells the story of the Parisian courtesan Violetta Valéry, one of opera's greatest heroines, based on the reallife courtesan Marie Duplessis, who died in 1847 aged just 23. In this revival, Violetta is sung by Russian soprano enera Gimadieva in her debut with The Royal Opera, following her successful appearance as Violetta at the Glyndebourne Festival.

Royal Opera House: Boris Godunov (NR) 6/26/2016
Bryn Terfel, Vlada Borovko - 3 hr. 0 mins.
photoRichard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky'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's assumption of the title role - one of the most complex characters in opera - while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.
