The Met: Live In HD 2017-18 Continues At Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau With The Exterminating Angel

STER-KINEKOR CINEMA NOUVEAU BRINGS OPERA TO LIFE THIS DECEMBER
The Exterminating Angel screening from 16 December 2017
Opera in three acts
The 7th Metropolitan Opera performance of Thomas Adès’s

Following the rapturous response to his last opera, The Tempest, the Met presents the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s: The Exterminating Angel; inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. This is another exclusive screening brought to you by Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau.

Hailed by the New York Times at its 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious… a major event,” The Exterminating Angel is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Luis Buñuel’s classic 1962 film El Ángel Exterminador (The Exterminating Angel), which inspired Thomas Adès and librettist Tom Cairns’s opera, has an unusual premise: A sophisticated group of people at a dinner party find that, for reasons that are never explained or even deeply questioned, they cannot leave the room they are in. Over an indeterminate period of time, their basest instincts emerge, and even when the survivors manage to escape, they find that they may be trapped again elsewhere. The film defies attempts at systematic analysis and even seems to denounce the need for answers as one of society’s many pathologies. The idea of using a film as a source for an opera is not shocking itself, but adapting one that has baffled and fascinated both audiences and critics is an extraordinary task. Admittedly, there are obvious ways in which El Ángel Exterminador commends itself to the opera house: There are operatic references in the story, and a formal dinner party is itself a form of theatre—one in which there is an acknowledged gulf between what people say and what they actually mean. Still, the strange conceit of this particular film presents great challenges—namely, the unanswered question of why this is all happening.

The Setting

The opera is set in and around a mansion in a large city suggestive of—but not definitively stated to be—Mexico City, during the 1960s.

The Music

Adès’s score examines through music, the ideas Buñuel explored with dialogue and visuals alone. (In fact, the film itself has almost no musical underscoring). As the story moves from the comfortably elegant to the disturbingly surreal, pleasant party music evolves into a more unusual ambience, but the familiar and the puzzling are always present in various configurations. Despite the ensemble nature of the work—more than a dozen singers appear onstage together throughout most of the evening—a unique musical personality differentiates each character. The layering of individual voices is one of the fascinations of the score, culminating in such ensemble pieces as a chorus that depicts a sudden retreat into group obsessive compulsive disorder.

Watch the trailer of The Exterminating Angel and access more information here: www.metopera.org/Season/2017-18-Season/exterminating-angel-ades-tickets/

The Exterminating Angel will be screened on 16, 17, 19, 26 and 27 December 2017.

The film will show at Cinema Nouveau and select Ster-Kinekor sites: Rosebank Nouveau, Brooklyn Nouveau and V&A Waterfront Nouveau. At Somerset and Blue Route Mall in Cape Town and Bedford Square in Johannesburg.

Nouveau To Screen David Hockney At The Royal Academy Of Arts

(Season 5: DAVID HOCKNEY AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS: A Bigger Picture 2012 & 82 Portraits and One Still Life 2016)

A Bigger Picture 2012 & 82 Portraits and One Still Life 2016

Season 5 of Exhibition on Screen gives audiences the chance to view some of the world’s greatest art exhibitions on the big screen

“In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.” Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Art lovers will appreciate this season’s Exhibition on Screen as Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau brings the best artistic and contemporary through a whole new artistic experience on the big screen – David Hockney at the Royal Academy of Arts from 25 November 2017.

Widely considered Britain’s most popular artist, David Hockney is a global sensation with exhibitions in London, New York, Paris and beyond, attracting millions of visitors worldwide. Now entering his 9th decade, Hockney shows absolutely no evidence of slowing down or losing his trademark boldness.

This intriguing documentary releases exclusively at Nouveau cinemas in Rosebank Nouveau in Johannesburg, Brooklyn Nouveau in Pretoria, Ster-Kinekor Gateway Nouveau in Durban and at V&A Waterfront Nouveau in Cape Town on Saturday, 25 November.

Featuring intimate and in-depth interviews with Hockney, this revealing film focuses on two blockbuster exhibitions held in 2012 and 2016 at the Royal Academy of Art in London.

Director Phil Grabsky secured privileged access to craft this cinematic celebration of a 21st century master of creativity. This is also a Tim Marlow presentation.

The film also provides a rare chance to explore two of Hockney’s landmark exhibitions from his late career, guided by the exhibitions’ curatorial team and the artist himself. A Royal Academician since 1991, Hockney has a close relationship with the institution, creating both exhibitions specifically for the gallery spaces and thus making them entirely unique shows.

For A Bigger Picture Hockney returned to his native Yorkshire. This return to home was cathartic for Hockney and saw him capture the changing landscape through the seasons, using new techniques, not least iPad drawings and video. Four years later for 82 Portraits and One Still Life, Hockney also adopted a new mode of working, inviting sitters to his studio with a strict deadline of three days for each portrait. The 82 finished paintings are themselves one complete work.

The film features expert insights from art critics Martin Gayford and Jonathan Jones, and Edith Devaney (Senior Contemporary Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts) who twice sat for Hockney to paint.

The total running time for the film is 85 minutes.

Ballet In Cinema: Grand Pas De Deux, And More

Ballet in cinema: Grand pas de deux and more – see it first at Ster-Kinekor Nouveau Theatres

Ballet season kick-started only at Ster-Kinekor Nouveau Theatres

Full season schedule that comprises of eight ballet productions, some performed live form Moscow

The magic of the Bolshoi Ballet comes to the big screen at Ster-Kinekor Nouveau. The 2017-2018 Bolshoi Ballet season presents the greatest classics restaged by today’s most celebrated choreographers, for a cinema exclusive experience featuring the Bolshoi principals and corps de ballet. Three historical ballets reimagined by Alexei Ratmansky (le Corsaire, Romeo and Juliet, and The Flames of Paris) will be presented along with John Neumeier’s Lady of the Camellias and Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Taming of the Shrew. Three timeless classics of the Moscow stage will complete the season: Giselle, the Nutcracker and Coppélia. As classical as it may be, the Bolshoi remains the unshakable reference of ballet today.

Taming of the Shrew

A story of the strongest love, the Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare, kick-started the ballet season at Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau Theatres. With numerous hilarious renditions, this was not your expected theatrical take, but rather a rare musical performance by the Bolshoi Ballet dancers, captured live in Moscow. This tale follows suit of Shakespeare’s novels of star-crossed lovers who beyond reasonable doubt, defy all odds to be with each other.

Le Corsaire: From 02 December 2017

Up next on the big screen is Le Corsaire (The Pirate). This is a ballet in three acts, with a libretto based on the poem The Corsair by Lord Byron. Amidst a bustling market, the pirate Conrad falls in love at first sight with the beautiful Medora, the ward of the slave merchant Lankedem’s bazaar. Conrad kidnaps Medora when Lanquedem decides to sell her to the Pasha. Catch this graceful production on 02 December 2017 at your nearest Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau Theatre.

Duration: 3 hours 35 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes.

The Nutcracker: From 23 December 2017

As the clock strikes midnight on Christmas Eve, Marie’s wooden nutcracker doll comes to life and transforms into a prince! Soon joined by her other toys that have also come to life, Marie and her prince embark on a dreamy unforgettable adventure. A holiday tradition for the whole family, The Nutcracker sweeps the Bolshoi stage for two hours of enchantment and magic. Along with Tchaikovsky’s cherished score and some of the Bolshoi’s greatest artists, The Nutcracker remains a treasure not to be missed!

Duration:2 hours and 15 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

The Lady of the Camellias: From 03 February 2018

Alexandre Dumas fils’s novel comes to life on the Bolshoi stage, with prima Svetlana Zakharova as the ailing Marguerite seeking love and redemption from her life as a courtesan. The Bolshoi brings choreographer John Neumeier’s work of rare beauty and tragic depth to new emotional heights, accompanied by Chopin’s romantic piano score. As he arrives in Paris for the first time, the young and naive Armand is utterly captivated after meeting the ravishing and most desirable courtesan, Marguerite Gautier. Their encounter gives birth to a passionate, yet doomed love…

Duration: 3 hours and 05 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

Romeo and Juliet (New production): From 03 March 2018

Alexei Ratmansky, former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet, stages the company’s premiere of his production with dramatic urgency and a fresh re-telling of Shakespeare’s beloved classic. His brilliant and detailed adaptation set to Prokofiev’s romantic and cinematic score, reignites the story of literature’s most celebrated lovers like no other classical ballet choreographer today.

In Verona, Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love while their respective families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are caught in a bitter rivalry ending in heart-wrenching tragedy…

Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare’s most popular plays during his lifetime, and now you can enjoy this beautiful story being told through ballet.

Duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

Giselle: From 14 April 2018

Giselle is a romantic ballet in two acts. Prima ballerina, Svetlana Zakharova, personifies this ultimate ballerina role in the classical repertoire, alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht, in this chilling, yet luminous ballet that continues to captivate audiences for over 150 years at the Bolshoi. When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman, she dies of a broken heart in his arms. While Albrecht grieves, she returns from the dead as a Wili, a vengeful spirit meant to make unfaithful men dance until death…

Duration: 2 hours and 20 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

The Flames of Paris: From 05 May 2018

The Flames of Paris is a full-length ballet in four acts based on songs of the French Revolution. Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi’s overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Alexei Ratmansky’s captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen’s The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage. In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris in support of the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way…

Duration: 2 hours and 15 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

Coppélia: From 04 August 2018

Closing off the season is the comic ballet: Coppélia. The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fiancée with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humour in this effervescent production. Swanhilda notices her fiancée Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppelia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson…

Duration: 2 hours and 45 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes

If you’re a hopeless romantic and appreciate beautiful ballet renditions of timeless classics that are brought to you by prolific ballet composers, then this season is a must see!

The 2017-2018 Bolshoi Ballet season will screen at the following Ster-Kinekor Nouveau theatres ONLY:

  • Cinema Nouveau Rosebank
  • Cinema Nouveau Brooklyn
  • Cinema Nouveau Gateway Commercial
  • Cinema Nouveau V & A Waterfront

Ster-Kinekor Nouveau enthusiasts will get a taste of Italy at the Johannesburg Italian Film Festival (JIFF), which will run from 10 – 12 November 2017. Acclaimed Italian actor, Raoul Bova, will visit South Africa for this much-anticipated festival.

The third annual Johannesburg Italian Film Festival (JIFF), which is held under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy in Johannesburg, returns to Rosebank Cinema Nouveau from 10-12 November. “The main purpose of the annual JIFF, is to create a platform through which to celebrate the joy and magic of Italy’s big screen,” says Claudio Coci, President of the CCIS and curator of the festival. “Italy has a very long, rich and influential cinematic history and JIFF, which is a free festival, aims to share this with an enthusiastic South African film-loving public,” he adds.

This year, the festival features the films of acclaimed actor Raoul Bova, who is known to a broader

audience thanks to mainstream Hollywood films such as Under the Tuscan Sun, All Roads Lead to

Rome and The Tourist. Bova will be travelling to Johannesburg to open the festival at an invitation only, gala evening on 9 November 2017.

JIFF takes place at Cinema Nouveau Rosebank and entry is free. The schedule includes the following Italian films, all of which feature Raoul Bova:
