NT Live: The Threepenny Opera

In cinemas from 12 November 2016

Mack the Knife is back in town.

A darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill’s raucous musical broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre.

London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight. Mr and Mrs Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn’t come home last night and it’s all about to kick off…

With Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (Hamlet, Othello, James Bond), as Macheath alongside Rosalie Craig (As You Like It, My Family and other Animals) as Polly Peachum and Haydn Gwynne (The Windsors, Drop the Dead Donkey) as Mrs Peachum.

This bold, anarchic production is brought to you by a creative powerhouse; adapted by Simon Stephens, (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), and directed by Rufus Norris, (Everyman, London Road).

NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea

In cinemas from 8 October 2016

Helen McCrory (Medea and The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre, Penny Dreadful, Peaky Blinders) returns to the National Theatre in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece, playing one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tom Burke (War and Peace, The Musketeers) also features in Carrie Cracknell’s critically acclaimed new production.

A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952.

When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former Royal Air Force pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion.

Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.

Slack Bay

Directed by Bruno Dumont

Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Fabrice Luchini mix it up for laughs in the latest Cannes entry from Bruno Dumont, a filmmaker continuing to trade his former heavyweight formalism for the absurdity and slapstick he revelled in with the great Li’l Quinquin.

Breezily mining the class divide for bizarro comedy, Dumont sets his new film on the Channel Coast in the Summer of 1910, where Luchini’s barmy patriarch and his wife (Bruni Tedeschi) vacation with her flamboyant sister (Binoche) and the latter’s wild, cross-dressing daughter (mononymic newcomer Raph). With a cast of local farmers on the seaside below, Slack Bay delights with its Chaplinesque humour, witty dialogue, gender-bending identity crises and a dash of old-fashioned cannibalism thrown in for good measure.

The Beethoven Project

In cinemas 25 June 2016

One of the world greatest conductors of all time, (BBC Music Magazine), Sir Simon Rattle leads the Berlin Philharmonic presenting Beethoven’s masterful brilliance in two tremendously expressive works: the inspired Symphony No. 4 and the impassioned Symphony No. 7.

The journey of the symphonies is paralleled by the journey of the composer’s life not only creating works that are renowned and beloved the world over, but forming the framework for more than a century of musical expression and experience.

The unique musical program uses the juxtaposition between the more classical, sunny and cheerful Symphony No. 4 and the powerful, almost ecstatic, Symphony No. 7 to create a not-to-be-missed event exploring a musical rollercoaster led by one of today’s most outstanding conductors.

Bringing everything full circle, audience will be treated to the documentary, Living with Beethoven, which features interviews from Rattle and members of the Philharmonic as they take an intimate look at Beethoven’s musical masterpieces and their approach to the composer’s genius.
