But it's not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down.

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.

When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic one night begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters' fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother. Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the new anti-Catholic Communist government, and facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their belief and traditions clash with harsh realities.

Antonio Pappano, Vittorio Grigolo - 3 hr. 0 mins.
photoBased on Goethe's novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet's opera tells the story of the poet Werther's hopeless love for Charlotte, who is committed to another man. The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour, - small wonder that Werther is often considered to be the composer's finest work. The Royal Opera's Music Director Antonio Pappano returns to conduct film, theatre and opera director Benoît Jacquot's classic production. Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo stars as Werther, alongside Joyce Di Donato, who sings her first Charlotte (one of the great French mezzo roles) in this staging.
