The Secret Life of Pets 2D (U)

The Secret Life of Pets 2D
For one bustling Manhattan apartment building, the real day starts after the folks on two legs leave for work and school. That's when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine: hanging out with each other, trading humiliating stories about their owners, or auditioning adorable looks to get better snacks. The building's top dog, Max (voiced by Louis C.K.), a quick-witted terrier rescue who's convinced he sits at the centre of his owner's universe, finds his pampered life rocked when she brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a sloppy, massive mess of a mongrel with zero interpersonal skills. When this reluctant canine duo finds themselves out on the mean streets of New York, they have to set aside their differences and unite against a fluffy-yet-cunning bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), who's building an army of Ex-Pets abandoned by their owners and out to turn the tables on humanity…all before dinnertime.

Glyndebourne - Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict (12A LIVE)

Glyndebourne - Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict
Glyndebourne - Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict (Beatrice and Benedict) Love conquers all in Berlioz's sparkling take on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. From Elizabeth and Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, to Hermione and Ron in the Harry Potter series, the age-old premise of verbal sparring to mask true feelings of love or passion is employed to magnificent effect in Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict. Berlioz selected the sunniest and funniest elements of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and set them to ravishing music to create this witty love-hate duel. The opera's overture explodes with a buoyant sense of fun and elegant wit and there are several splendid numbers for the female characters, especially the sublime Act I duet-nocturne, described by one critic as a 'marvel of indescribable lyrical beauty'. Conducted by Robin Ticciati and seen through the unique vision of director Laurent Pelly, Berlioz's comic gem makes its long-awaited Glyndebourne premiere in Festival 2016. With the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Chorus. Sung in French with English subtitles. Part of the Shakespeare400 celebrations, live from Glyndebourne's 2016 Festival.

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years (12A LIVE)

The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years
February 9th, 1964, 8:12pm EST - after a brief commercial break, four young men from Liverpool step onto the Ed Sullivan stage, changing culture forever.

Seventy-three million people watched The Beatles perform that night, the largest audience in television history. But it is what the band did next that would introduce them to the entire world, permanently transforming the music industry and forever engraining them into the fabric of popular culture... They went on tour.

By the time the band quit touring in August of 1966, they had performed 166 concerts in 15 countries and 90 cities around the world. The cultural phenomenon their touring helped create, known as "Beatlemania," was something the world had never seen before and, arguably, hasn't since.

This is the not-to-missed story of the band's exceptional touring years - an intimate portrait of the band, and a behind-the-scenes look at The Beatles on tour. Exploring the effect it had on their relationships, as well as their musical evolution, and looking at how they transformed the world of music, the film features interviews, unheard music and exclusive concert footage from the biggest band of all time.

Turandot on Sydney Harbour (12A LIVE)

Turandot on Sydney Harbour

In 2016, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour presents Turandot: a story of a death-marked love told with salt in the air, light on the sails and the city skyline reflected in your glass. It's the best of Sydney in a single evening: singing, sunsets and sparkling wine, in perfect harmony. Join us at the water's edge in a pop-up opera house with purpose-built bars, restaurants and a grandstand under the stars. Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng's take on this Chinese fable will be one for the history books.

Turandot is a beautiful and powerful princess, who challenges her many suitors to answer three riddles on pain of death. No one has ever succeeded. Caláf is a brave prince from a foreign land, who falls instantly in love with the princess. Despite the wishes of his exiled father and the pleas of a slave-girl who loves him, he rings the gong and declares his love for the princess. She presents her riddles, and in triumph, the unknown prince answers. Turandot despairs and the prince takes pity - offering the ice-cold princess a riddle of his own. But Caláf's riddle risks more than his own life - everyone else's hangs in the balance.

Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes including a 15 minute interval. Performed in Italian with English translations

ROH - Royal Ballet 2016 - 17 Season - Anastasia (12A LIVE)

ROH - Royal Ballet 2016 - 17 Season - Anastasia

An identity in crisis; a country in revolution. Anastasia is a ballet about one of the great historical mysteries of the 20th century, only recently solved. At the height of the Russian Revolution the royal family were executed, but afterwards a young woman appeared - apparently a surviving royal princess, the Grand

Duchess Anastasia. Known as 'Anna Anderson', she couldn't remember her past and she was presumed to be an imposter. Many wanted to forget the massacre and the Revolution; many believed, or hoped, that a princess could have survived, a remnant of the old world.

One of Kenneth MacMillan's first creations on becoming Director of The Royal Ballet in 1970, Anastasia is a dramatic and haunting exploration of Anna's nightmare of memory and identity. To music by Tchaikovsky and Martin?, we follow the events leading to the murder of a family, and Anna's confused dreams - or memories. A powerful, psychological challenge for the principal ballerina, this is a rare opportunity to see a landmark ballet by a major choreographer.

Charismatic young tenor Vittorio Grigolo is Hoffmann - compelled to tell the story of his lovers who, he believes, have all been stolen by a succession of arch villains. Superb baritone Thomas Hampson performs all four villains. The music includes the famous 'Barcarolle' and the stunning showpiece numbers are perfect vehicles for the vocal virtuosity of Sofia Fomina as the clockwork doll Olympia, Christine Rice as the courtesan Giulietta, and Sonya Yoncheva as Hoffmann's last love Antonia.

ROH - Royal Ballet 2016 - 17 Season - Jewels

George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauréprovides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while the fire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinskyand the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in 'Diamonds'.

Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company

ROH Royal Ballet 2016 - 17 Season - The Dream/symphonic Variatio
The Dream / Symphonic Variations / Marguerite and Armand

This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after World War II, and one of the Company's first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946.

With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck's brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton's beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi's opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.
