MACBETH – Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen

From its mesmerizing first moments to the last fulfilment of the witches’ prophecy, Shakespeare’s gripping account of the profoundest engagement with the forces of evil enthrals the imagination. When three witches tell Macbeth that he is destined to occupy the throne of Scotland, he and his wife become the instruments of their fate and kill the first man standing in their path, the virtuous King Duncan. But to maintain his position, Macbeth must keep on killing – first Banquo, his old comrade-in-arms; then, as the atmosphere of guilt and paranoia thickens, anyone who seems to threaten his tyrant’s crown.

THE LEGEND OF LOVE – Bolshoi Ballet

A splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy, and suffering, THE LEGEND OF LOVE returns to the Bolshoi stage after a ten-year absence. Featuring dance movements, sets, and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works. The storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines, Queen Mekhmene Banu and her young sister, Princess Shyrin.

Simmons (JUNO), the film explores the relationship between an eager young drummer at a cutthroat music conservatory and a brutally savage music instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student’s potential. Under his ruthless direction, the promising drummer begins to pursue perfection at any cost—even his humanity.
