Forthcoming special events at The Kino

Royal Opera House Live:
Carmen, Tuesday March 6, 6:45pm approx 200 mins including two intervals
Bizet’s ever-popular opera is given a fresh point of view in Barrie Kosky’s highly physical production, originally created for Frankfurt Opera. The Australian director is one of the world’s most sought-after opera directors and for Carmen he has devised a far-from-traditional version, incorporating music written by Bizet for the score but not usually heard, and giving a new voice to the opera’s endlessly fascinating central character. Conducted by Jakub Hrusa and starring Anna Goryachova, Francesco Meli, Anett Fritsch and Kostas Smoriginas.
Royal Ballet Live:
The Winter’s Tale, Wednesday February 28, 7:15pm, 180 mins approx with two intervals
Christopher Wheeldons The Winter’s Tale is widely judged to be a modern ballet classic. The story follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. With powerful designs by Bob Crowley and atmospheric music by Joby Talbot, this is a masterful modern narrative ballet. Starring Lauren Cuthbertson, Edward Watson, Sarah Lamb, Steven McRae, Laura Morera and Matthew Ball.
National Theatre Live:
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Thursday February 22 at 7pm, running time approx 185 mins including an interval.
Tennessee Williams’ 20th-century masterpiece played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash-hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ revival stars Sienna Miller alongside Jack O’Connell and Colm Meaney. On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gathers at its cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?
