Romeo and Juliet

ROMEO AND JULIET –  live film from La Scala Milan – Sunday 21st May 14:30 – £10
Featuring Roberto Bolle and Misty Copeland. Music by Prokofiev

See YouTube video below:

Romeo and Juliet first saw the light of day in January 1938 in Soviet Russia, where it took three years for Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev to get his adaptation of William Shakespeare’s ill-fated lovers to the stage. The ‘drambalet’ (dramatised ballet) is a masterful adaptation of Shakespeare’s enduring romantic tragedy, and has since performed all over the world.
The most notable adaptation in the ballet’s 78-year history is the 1965 production, which saw leading ballet choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillian bring Prokofiev’s classic piece to British audiences.

For anyone that really doesn’t know the story of romeo and Juliet, it’s the story of 2 young people who fall in love. A feud breaks out again between the 2 families, the Capulets and the Montagues. Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, fall in love and Friar Laurence agrees to marry them. After fights, secrets and intrigue a plot is contrived for the couple to flee to safety. Juliet will drink something to make her appear dead rather than marry Paris. then Romeo and the Friar will secretly remove her. Unfortunately, Romeo does not get the message and, after killing Paris, he finds Juliet, presumed dead and kills himself with poison rather than live without her. Juliet awakes, sees Romeo dead and tries to kill herself with poison from his lips. When that fails, she stabs herself with his dagger.

Story played out in so many films and plays – West Side Story being one of the more famous.

Viceroy’s House – 12A

Friday 19th May 20:00. Doors open 19:30

Viceroy’s House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people. The film’s story unfolds within that great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite – Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi – converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.

The Boss Baby – U

Friday 19th May 18:00. Doors open 17:30

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby. He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby. The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

Tickets will be on sale from Tarvin Newsagents or on the door. £4 adult £3 under 12 years
