October 30 at 7:30pm

England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Bradbury and Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy). As obstacles amass, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?

National Theatre Live: King Lear

Starring Ian McKellen

October 25, at 7:00pm

The Chitester Festival Theatre's production of King Lear, starring Ian McKellen, received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.  The Independent called McKellen's performance in the title role an "extraordinarily moving portrayal." Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two aging fathers - one a King, one his courtier - reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. 

 

 

 

 

Live at the Met: La Fanciulla del West

October 27, at 1:00pm

Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings Giacomo Puccini's gun-slinging heroine in this romantic epic of the Wild West, alongside star tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the role of the outlaw Dick Johnson.  Baritone Zeljko Lucic is the vigilante sheriff Jack Rance.  Puccini's "American" opera is set during the California Gold Rush, and the girl of the title is one of Puccini’s most appealing heroines - a strong, independent woman determined to win the man she loves.
