THE LEVELLING UK 2016 (15)

THE LEVELLING UK 2016

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School Market Lane,Wells NR23 1RB


Dir:  Hope Dickinson Leach   Cast: Ellie Kendrick, David Troughton and Joe Blakemore

An acclaimed directorial debut, this film has also won plaudits for the central performance of Ellie Kendrick, who is Clover, a student vet, who returns to the Somerset farm in the Levels on which she grew up, for the funeral of her brother. He was about to take over the farm from his father and there is doubt and uncertainty about the cause of his death.  Clover is estranged from her angry father (Troughton) and returning to the farm is doubly difficult for her. This is a powerful story of flooded farms and fractured families. The truth about the brother’s death is at the core of this intriguing drama. “It may sound bleak, but there is such life and compassion in every frame that the tune turns into a song of love” Mark Kermode, The Observer.

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel High School,Wells NR23 1RB


Conductor: Carlo Rizzi

The season opens with a new production of Bellini’s bel canto tragedy Norma, starring Sondra Radvanovsky in the title role, which she has sung to acclaim at the Met in 2013. Joyce DiDonato co-stars as Norma’s colleague and rival, Adalgisa, opposite Joseph Calleja as Pollione and Matthew Rose as Oroveso.                                               Bellini’s masterpiece boasts one of the most famous arias in all of opera, the beautiful “Casta diva.”

Directed by Sir David McVicar, this evocative new production sets the action deep in a Druid forest, where nature and ancient ritual rule. The priestess Norma is torn between loyalty to her oppressed people and love for a Roman soldier. On the eve of a Druid revolt, she must choose between two agonising betrayals—only to learn that she herself has already been betrayed

LADY MACBETH UK 2017 (15)

LADY MACBETH UK 2017

PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA

at Alderman Peel School, Market Lane,Wells NR23 1RB


Dir:  William Oldroyd. Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie and Christopher Fairbank.

Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth was the inspiration for the 1865 Russian novel Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, which itself has been adapted and transferred from Russia to the North East of England in the 19th Century. The story concerns Katherine (Pugh), a beautiful 17 year old woman who has been married off as part of a land deal to the much older Alexander (Hilton), the morose and inadequate son of the wealthy and controlling Boris, (Fairbank) a mine owner.  It is he who rules the roost and insists on Katherine being a demure and submissive wife.  With both men absent on business for long periods Katherine feels imprisoned in a stark and remote manor house.  She is, however, a young woman of spirit and the inevitable occurs when she starts a passionate affair with the estate’s groomsman (Jarvis), a handsome man of mixed race.  While there are some echoes of Lady Chatterley, the denouement is very different in this no holds barred Victorian melodrama – “a lusty, jawdroppingly bodice ripper” – Tim Robey, The Telegraph
