LA BAYADERE – Bolshoi Ballet

NR  |  4 hours 45 minutes 

A key work in the classical ballet repertoire, LA BAYADERE is the story of impossible love set against the backdrop of a lush, mysterious India. When a beautiful dancer and a warrior meet in secret, they swear eternal fidelity. However when the High Brahmin, who is also in love with the dancer, overhears them, he rushes to reveal their secret to the Rajah. Marius Petipa’s choreography, here in a new scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, is exquisite. Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova and Maria Alexandrova bring the characters of this romantic ballet to life.

I DUE FOSCARI – Royal Opera House

NR  |  2 hours 35 minutes

A despairing father is torn between love for his family and duty to a corrupt city in Verdi’s searing early tragedy I DUE FOSCARI, starring Placido Domingo and conducted by Antonio Pappano. The two Foscari of the title are the city’s Doge, Francesco Foscari and his son Jacopo, who has been brought back from exile to face charges of treason. This taut, sombre drama provides the basis for one of Verdi’s most arresting early scores, not heard at the Royal Opera House since 1995 and newly presented in an acclaimed staging by the American director Thaddeus Strassberger.

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2

118 min | R
The follow up to the hit comedy HORRIBLE BOSSES reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis alongside Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Chris Pine (STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS), and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS). Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale, and Kurt decide to become their own bosses, until a slick investor pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.
