  • UPDATE: Another great response for our Autism friendly screening.  Thank you all again for supporting it.

    Our next show is TBC

     

    With this type of showing the lights are left on low, the volume is turned down, future film trailers are removed and people can move around the cinema or make a noise as they feel comfortable. The films are recommended to anyone that would benefit from the subtle alterations made to the cinema auditorium because of their sensory differences and it allows them to attend newly released films with friends and family in an inclusive environment.

    A spokesperson from Spectrum said ‘We are delighted to work in conjunction with the Plaza to host Autism friendly cinema screenings. After receiving request and enquiries from so many of the families that use our services, we are thrilled to be able to offer them a chance to enjoy such an occasion, tailored specifically to their needs. The Plaza have been sensitive to such facts and together we have modified this screening to be suitable for those on the autism spectrum. It’s set to be a great day and hopefully enjoyed by all!’
    Just purchase your tickets as normal and on the day bring your paperwork regarding diagnosis along & a carer will be refunded.

    Madama Butterfly – Royal Opera House Live

    Thursday 30th March 2017 7:15pm

    img66560606_mbuttPuccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists’ romanticized views of Japan. Puccini’s music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clingsvainly to her dreams.Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice

Is he a real hero? Or is he just a man like any other? This brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov is a tragic poetic journey that can only be seen at the Bolshoi.

    Jewels – Royal Ballet Live

    Tuesday 11th April 2017 7:15pm

    img75445852_jewelsGeorge Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauréprovides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinskyand the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsk y in ‘Diamonds’. Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company

    img34533706_thedreamThis gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variationswas Ashton’s first work after World War II, and one of the Company’s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi’s opera La traviata.
