Opera on Screen: IL TROVATORE

Verdi’s dramatic masterpiece is back at the Royal Opera House for the winter season! Set amidst a cold and war-torn landscape, a tale of love, revenge, and mistaken identity unfolds. Exemplary singing abounds in this production from director David Bösch. From this surplus of stunning vocal talent mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili stands out as an audience and critic favourite in her powerful portrayal of Azucena. Conductor Richard Farnes also deserves recognition for the emotional energy he brings to the score.

EXIT: MUSIC

In the year 1933, Germany was the vibrant and diverse centre of the musical world. But like so many things with the rise of the Third Reich, music was hijacked for propaganda purposes. Thousands of musicians were forced to flee Europe, and Exit: Music focuses on five composers whose work had all but disappeared in the rush. Today, their stories are told by family members and biographers, with rare archival footage and commentary from experts.

STRIKE A POSE

As integral figures of the record-setting documentary Madonna: Truth or Dare, her groundbreaking Blond Ambition tour, and the classic music video for Vogue (directed by David Fincher!)—it is difficult to overstate the impact Madonna’s dancers had on LGBTQ culture. But while they helped empower and encourage a generation, they were grappling with their own struggles. Just as quickly as they rose to fame, the limelight faded. Now, they share their stories of finding their own self-acceptance and courage.
