April sees the start of a Macbeth season at Tideswell Cinema Live, with an opera and two stage productions of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, upstairs at the George Inn.
We begin with Verdi’s version of Macbeth, live from the Royal Opera House on Wed April 4 at7.15pm. Conducted by Antonio Pappano, it stars Serbian baritone Željko Lučić as Macbeth and Russian soprano Anna Netrebko as Lady Macbeth, with the witches spectacularly portrayed as strange, scarlet-turbaned creatures.

A week later, on Wed April 11 at 7pm, we have the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Macbeth live from Stratford. Former Dr Who Christopher Eccleston and Irish actress Niamh Cusack fulfil long-held desires to play the witch-cursed general and his ambitious wife who plot to murder the Scottish king.

Finally a third Macbeth comes to us live from the National Theatre on Thur May 10 at 7pm, starring Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff.

Coming back to this month, on Tue April 17 at 7.15pm we offer another chance to see the Royal Ballet’s magical production of The Winter’s Tale after blizzards affected the first showing in February. Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon built on the success of his Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to createthis adaptation of Shakespeare’s romance.
Looking forward to early May, we have another treat from the RoyalBallet on Thur May 3 at 7.15pm – Kenneth Macmillan’s classic Manon, the storyof a young woman who elopes with her lover only to be seduced by a rich man andcondemned as a prostitute.
Verdi’s Macbeth, Winter’s Tale and Manon are £15 (£12.50 concessions),the RSC Macbeth and National Theatre Macbeth are £10 (£7.50 under-19s).
