Ahoy there shipmates! Tideswell Cinema’s live events cast off this month with the National Theatre’s acclaimed production of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story, Treasure Island.

This new adaptation by Wakefield-born Bryony Lavery features a female Jim (Jemima), an animatronic parrot and a spectacular stage-set including the giant ribcage of a ship. The live broadcast on Thursday Jan 22 is sold out but there is an encore on Monday Jan 26 at 7pm – price £10. Tideswell Cinema is also putting on a performance for local schools on the Monday afternoon.

A week later, on Thursday Jan 29, we feature a live broadcast of Andrea Chenier from the Royal Opera House.

David McVicar directs this new production of Umberto Giordano’s passionate drama of liberty and love in the French Revolution, starring Jonas Kaufmann and Eva-Maria Westbroek conducted by Antonio Pappano. Tickets £15 (£12.50 concessions).
