Bristol Old Vic - Messiah

Encore Screening

Inspired by Handel’s profound religious masterpiece, this acclaimed Bristol Old Vic production provides a rare chance to experience a powerfully dramatic account of Messiah and to rediscover the intense spirituality of its many well-known arias and choruses.

Staged by the Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse), this extraordinary production features Europe’s most celebrated Baroque orchestra The English Concert, the magnificent Erebus Ensemble and a cast of internationally-renowned soloists.

The story explores the drama and struggle of faith, showing a group of people whose grief at the loss of their leader is transformed into hope through a narrative of resurrection. Through their despair, the Apostles gradually realise their mission is to redeem the world by sharing the story of Jesus’s life and death with all humanity.

Described by the critics as an ‘astonishingly beautiful’ (The Stage),‘direct and impactful interpretation’ (The Times), this dramatised concert is a rare treat for connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.

Happy End (15)

RIALTO FILM SCREENING

In French with English subtitles

Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Mathieu Kassovitz and Toby Jones
Director: Michael Haneke

Master auteur Michael Haneke (Amour, The White Ribbon, Hidden) returns with a biting satire on bourgeois family values set in the shadow of the European refugee crisis.

It’s piercing dark comedy on the blind preoccupations of middle-class angst. When her mother falls ill under mysterious circumstances, young Eve (Fantine Harduin) is sent to live with her estranged father’s relatives in Calais.

The Laurent family – wealthy, neurotic and self-obsessed – own a lucrative construction company and live in a sprawling mansion house, waited on by servants. But trouble is brewing, as a series of intergenerational back-stabbings threaten to tear the family apart.

Meanwhile, distracted by infidelities and betrayals, they fail to notice that their new arrival has a sinister secret of her own.

Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Happy End bears all the hallmarks of Haneke’s uniquely stark and unsympathetic style. Pairing pitch-black humour with chillingly precise direction, it’s proof – if we ever needed it – that he remains one of modern cinema’s true visionaries.

‘Happy End is a satirical nightmare of haute-bourgeois European prosperity: as stark, brilliant and unforgiving as a halogen light…It is also as gripping as a satanically inspired soap opera, a dynasty of lost souls.’ THE GUARDIAN
