Theatre HD Live in Cinema: Coriolanus
Donmar Warehouse 2014, 189 min. Directed by Josie Rourke. Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Mark Gatiss, Hadley Fraser. In English. When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people. Josie Rourke directs Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston making his return to the Donmar in the title role. Watch online here.

Theatre HD Live in Cinema: Orfeo ed Euridice
The Metropolitan Opera 2009, 99 min. Directed by Mark Morris. Starring: Stephanie Blythe, Danielle de Niese, Heidi Grant Murphy. In Italian. Director and choreographer Mark Morris’s production of Gluck’s masterpiece updates the immortal story from its ancient Greek roots to the timeless present, where, he says, “the union of chorus and dancers feels inevitable and inseparable.” With costumes by Isaac Mizrahi and a set designed by Allen Moyer, this production surrounds the action with the superb Met chorus dressed as a crowd of historic characters who bear witness to the transformative power of love. Orfeo (Stephanie Blythe) is so consumed with grief at the death of his beloved Euridice (Danielle de Niese) that the gods (Heidi Grant Murphy as Amor) allow him to lead her back from the underworld—if he will not look at her on the way. Of course he can’t resist looking, but the gods are truly merciful. Watch online here.

Theatre HD Live in Cinema: The Winter's Tale
Shakespeare's Globe 2018, 177 min (with one intermission). Directed by Blanche McIntyre. Starring: Will Keen, Oliver Ryan, Luke MacGregor. In English. In a fit of groundless jealousy, Leontes wrecks his marriage, defies the gods, destroys his family and ruins himself. As the years roll around, a new generation flee their own country and take refuge in Sicilia. Unknowingly they bring with them the key to the past, present and future… A ‘winter’s tale’ is a fantasy, and The Winter’s Tale is Shakespeare’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable. The play’s uncontrollable emotions – rage, love, grief and forgiveness – range across gender, country, class and age. Its universe is full of monsters, gods and natural disasters, and its colossal sweep takes us from stifling courts to unbuttoned festivals. Blanche McIntyre has recently worked at the Donmar Warehouse, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Chichester Festival Theatre. She directed The Comedy of Errors and As You Like It at the Globe in 2014 and 2015. Watch online here.

Theatre HD Live in Cinema: Tosca
The Metropolitan Opera 1978, 124 min. Directed by Tito Gobbi. Starring: Luciano Pavarotti, Shirley Verrett, Cornell MacNeil. In Italian. A stellar cast brings Puccini’s spellbinding opera to life, seizing every opportunity to thrill the audience. Luciano Pavarotti is Cavaradossi, the painter and political revolutionary in love with the beautiful and famous singer Tosca (the riveting Shirley Verrett). Rome’s diabolical chief of police, Baron Scarpia (Cornell MacNeil), wants Tosca for himself—but he underestimates the fury of a woman in love. With torture, murder, and a suicide in its final moments, Tosca packs more dramatic punches than most other operas—and this classic telecast captures them all. James Conlon conducts in a production by the incomparable Tito Gobbi, one of the great Scarpias of the 20th century. Watch online here.
