Oscar Wilde Season Encore:
An Ideal Husband (12A) 165mins, Monday July 2, 7:30pm. Running time approximately 165 minutes including an interval
An Encore screening of the new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. Directed by Jonathan Church, this entertaining and still topical play brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. As an ambitious government minister, Sir Robert Chiltern’s smooth ascent to the top seems assured until Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning proof of his previous financial chicanery. The talented ensemble cast includes real-life father and son Edward and Freddie Fox; Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber; Olivier Award-winner Nathaniel Parker; Sally Bretton and Susan Hampshire.
Andre Rieu Live: Maastricht 2018
Amore – My Tribute to Love, live from Maastricht on Sunday July 8 at 3pm. Tickets: adults £20, members and concessions £18, children 14 and under £12.50
One of the most popular live acts in the world, the King of the Waltz André Rieu has announced that his 2018 Maastricht concerts will be screened in more than 2,000 cinemas worldwide across the weekend of July 28-29, as he performs his home-town shows this year with a celebration of love. Amore, My Tribute to Love, is the renowned violinist’s expression of his love for music and for both of his families – his wife and children and of course his Johann Strauss Orchestra, with which he has performed for more than 30 years. It follows on from the release of his album Amore last year, which features his own versions of classic love songs from the worlds of popular and classical music.
Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins hosts the presentation, interviewing fans and soaking up the joyous atmosphere that bursts right through the cinema screen – as well as catching an exclusive chat with André the moment he steps off stage.
