Mamma Mia: Here we go again (12A)

10 years after Mamma Mia! and Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is back on the sun-drenched Greek island of Kalokairi, however, her circumstances are a little different this time. Now pregnant, Sophie is struggling to find the knowledge and strength to move on to the most important chapter in her life.


Searching for inspiration, she retraces her mother Donna’s (Meryl Streep) steps from the past in the hope of finding the courage to be the best mum she can be. We then flashback in time to a young Donna (Lily James) back in 1979, who is enjoying the prime time of her life, singing in a band and dating a familiar trio of gentleman, named Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner) and Bill (Josh Dylan).


Back in the present day, Sophie is wondering if she is about to discover which of her three possible fathers is the real deal, when an uninvited guest arrives in the shape of Grandma Ruby (Cher).


Ol Parker directs the all-star cast, which includes Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables), Christine Baranski (Chicago), Pierce Brosnan (The Foreigner), Julie Walters (Mary Poppins Returns) and Colin Firth (Bridget Jones’s Baby). Lily James (Baby Driver) is new to the scene alongside pop icon Cher (Burlesque).


Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is anticipated to be one of the biggest films this summer and is backed by some of ABBA’s best loved hits.

Glyndebourne: Saul (12A)

George Frideric Handel

Saul ​(Recorded live at Glyndebourne in 2015)


David has vanquished the giant Goliath, but not everyone rejoices in his victory. Jealous of the young warrior, King Saul turns against him, descending into violent, destructive madness

that forces his children to choose between loyalty and love, tearing both a family and a nation apart.


Handel’s vision of a Lear-like king is astonishing in its psychological complexity, offering a musical portrait of mental collapse few have since matched. Combined with thrilling

choruses that exploit the virtuosic potential of their singers, exquisite arias and bold orchestration filled with unusual instruments, it creates a Biblical drama of truly

Shakespearean scope.


Barrie Kosky’s blazingly original and visually spectacular staging of Handel’s oratorio pairs baroque music with contemporary choreography and lavish designs to create an enthralling theatrical fusion of old and new.


This magical, mesmerising new production of [Handel’s] Old Testament-inspired oratorio has the wow factor in spades – music-theatre at its knockout best.’ ★★★★★ Daily Mail


Sung in English with English subtitles. Recorded live at Glyndebourne in 2015.


Also on screen this summer: the world-renowned tale of Puccini’s heartbreaking Madama Butterfly (live) and the rare opportunity to see Samuel Barber’s Pulitzer prize-winning opera from the age of Hitchcock, Vanessa.

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (15)

Double Bill


Part of the season: Uprising! Spirit of ’68

Uprising is a UK-wide programme of screenings and events taking place from June-October 2018 exploring the cinema and the legacy of 1968, joining the dots between that period and our own turbulent times.


BLACK PANTHERS -1968, 31mins.

Agnès Varda turns her camera on an Oakland demonstration against the imprisonment of activist and Black Panthers cofounder Huey P. Newton. In addition to evincing Varda’s fascination with her adopted surroundings and her empathy, this perceptive short is also a powerful political statement.



THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 -2011, 80mins.

A treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews. Thirty years later, this lush collection was found languishing in the basement of Swedish Television.

In The Intense Now

Part of the season: Uprising! Spirit of ’68

Uprising is a UK-wide programme of screenings and events taking place from June-October 2018 exploring the cinema and the legacy of 1968, joining the dots between that period and our own turbulent times.



Made following the discovery of amateur footage shot in China in 1966 during the first and most radical stage of the Cultural Revolution, IN THE INTENSE NOW speaks to the fleeting nature of moments of great intensity. Scenes of China are set alongside archival images of the events of 1968 in France, Czechoslovakia, and, to a lesser extent, Brazil. In keeping with the tradition of the film-essay, they serve to investigate how the people who took part in those events continued onward after passions had cooled. The footage, all of it archival, not only reveals the state of mind of those filmed—joy, enchantment, fear, disappointment, dismay—but also sheds light on the relationship between a document and its political context. What can one say of Paris, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, or Beijing by looking at the images of the period? Why did each of these cities produce a specific sort of record?


Narrated in first person, the film reflects on that which is revealed by four sets of images: footage of the French students' uprising in May of 1968; the images captured by amateurs during the invasion of Czechoslovakia in August of the same year, when forces led by the Soviet Union put an end to the Prague Spring; shots of the funerals of students, workers, and police officers killed during the events of 1968 in the cities of Paris, Lyon, Prague, and Rio de Janeiro; and the scenes that a tourist—the director's mother—filmed in China in 1966, the year of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.


"Find solace, enlightenment and surprise in João Moreira Salles’s 'In the Intense Now,' a bittersweet, ruminative documentary essay."

A. O. Scott, The New York Times


"Melancholy, inspiring and evocative."

J. Hoberman, The New York Review of Books


"One of the 10 best films of Berlin Film Festival! Remarkably resonant and personal."

Owen Gleiberman, Variety


"A rich, immersive contemplation of the emotional battery life of revolutions, Brazilian filmmaker João Moreira Salles' remarkable, deeply felt essay film 'In the Intense Now' examines 1968's turbulence in four countries through the prism of what its amateur documentarians filmed."

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

ROH LIVE: Swan lake (2018) (12A)

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.


Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.


Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.


Choreography by Liam Scarlett after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov

Music by Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky

Glyndebourne: Vanessa (12A)

Samuel Barber

Vanessa ​(live from Glyndebourne)


A rare opportunity to see Barber’s Pulitzer Prize-winning work – opera from the age of Hitchcock, with an atmospheric score and tense, psychological twists. Abandoned by her lover Anatol, Vanessa retreats from the world, waiting and hoping with only her mother and her niece Erika for company. But when, 20 years later, Anatol’s handsome young son arrives unexpectedly, he shatters the calm of this shuttered household

of women. Past and present love collides, and the aftershocks threaten to destroy them all.


An operatic thriller from the age of Hitchcock, Samuel Barber’s Pulitzer Prize-winning first opera boasts one of the 20th century’s most beautiful scores. Poised constantly on the edge of song, Vanessa unfolds in generous swathes of melody, rich in filmic strings and soaring brass, with echoes of Puccini, Berg and Strauss. It climaxes in a final quintet of Mozartean

poignancy – one of the great ensembles of the contemporary repertoire.


Seldom performed in the UK, this is a rare opportunity to see Barber’s heart-breaking domestic drama. Olivier Award-winning director Keith Warner makes his much-anticipated

Glyndebourne debut with this production, which promises to bring out the psychological tensions that sit just below the surface of this charged work.
