THEATRE IN THE CINEMA PROGRAMME September to December 2019
17th September at 7.30pm – Rigoletto on the Lake
Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage. One of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame. Odeon Port Solent. Cost £16.75
24th October at 7.30pm - Don Pasquale
Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him –with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind –has long delighted and surprised audiences, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Odeon Port Solent. Cost £18.75
7th November at 7pm – Hansard
See two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London. It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Heskett has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport. Vue Portsmouth £17.24
10th December at 7.15pm – Coppelia
A classic return to The Royal Ballet repertory with Ninette de Valois’ charming and funny Coppélia–a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’ delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole Company. Osbert Lancaster’s designs bring a colourful storybook world to life in this Christmas treat for the whole family. Odeon Port Solent Cost £18.75
