A Christmas Carol 2020 (PG)

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”


A Victorian family prepares a paper theatre for a performance of A Christmas Carol. The audience enters the imagination of one of the children and quickly, the cardboard stage transforms to reveal a magical world containing real dancers and stylised sets.  


The classic tale unfolds in a rich tapestry of highly absorbing, theatrical drama featuring sumptuous visual effects inspired by the techniques of early cinema. In a daring twist of format, characters are portrayed by dancers and voiced by an eclectic cast of the world’s most recognisable actors.


The mix of danced action and spoken narration brings fresh dimension to Dickens’ characters and poetic language, whilst remaining true to the beauty of the author’s original narrative.

Join us for a boppy evening you won't forget, with guaranteed hip gyration, possibly even full blown dad dancing...... and no Rick Astley!

La Traviata: Barcelona (12A)

Verdi’s La traviata is famous for its complex and sympathetic portrayal of tragic heroine Violetta, a Parisian courtesan who recounts her life through a series of memories on her deathbed. David McVicar's enduring production of La traviata invites a new reading of the plot, exploring the psychology and innermost feelings of the characters in intimate moments. These scenes are contrasted with decadent turn-of-the-century set pieces in Verdi’s tragedy of a noble love sacrificed on the altar of bourgeois morality.


Broadcast from Gran Teatre Del Liceu in Barcelona

Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno are sent by the Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter, Pamina, who is being held captive by Sarastro and his brotherhood of priests. Tamino has fallen in love with a picture of Pamina and hopes to win her. Arriving at  Sarastro’s  temple,  the  two  travelers  learn  that  it  is  the  queen,  not  Sarastro, who is evil. Sarastro, who realizes that Pamina and Tamino are meant for each other, promises the girl eventual freedom.


ACT II - Sarastro announces to the priests that Tamino will undergo initi-ation rites to join the brotherhood. Pamina, who has also fallen in love with Tamino, is horrifi ed when her mother asks her to murder Sarastro. Sarastro in turn tells Pamina that he does not seek vengeance. As part of  their  trials,  Tamino  and  Papageno  are  not  allowed  to  speak,  and  Pamina, thinking Tamino doesn’t care for her, is heartbroken. Meanwhile  Papageno meets a fl irtatious old lady. A? er many dangers, Tamino and Pamina are fi  nally reunited. Papageno, desperate that he can’t fi  nd a girl for himself, attempts to commit suicide, when suddenly Papagena appears—she is the old lady, transformed into a young girl. ?  e Queen of the Night and her servants attack the temple but are defeated and banished. All hail the triumph of courage, virtue, and wisdom.

NT LIVE: Fleabag (16+)

Fleabag is back! Following a sell out screening on Saturday 28 September, we're bringing it back for a second time due to popular demand.


The hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, recorded live on London’s West End.


Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.


Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.


Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker) on the big screen at The Flavel.

ROH: Giselle (12A)

The greatest of all Romantic ballets, Peter Wright’s 2016 production of Marius Petipa’s classic is a tale of betrayal, the supernatural and love that transcends death. Starring Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov.

Giselle transformed the dance world when it was first performed in Paris in 1841 and remains at the centre of the classical repertory. Giselle’s essence has remained the same through many different productions in well over a century of continuous performance. Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet filmed in 2016 is based on Marius Petipa’s classic version (after the original 1841 choreography by Jules Perrot and Jean Coralli), which was first staged in St Petersburg in 1884.


The role of Giselle provides the dancer with many technical and dramatic challenges, from the character’s early love to her poignant descent into madness and her final gesture of forgiveness from beyond the grave. The first act of the ballet is filled with historical detail and rustic colour. By contrast, the second, ‘white’ act plunges the audience into an eerie moonlit forest haunted by the ethereal Wilis. With its combination of memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet.

ROH: The Nutcracker (U)

The Royal Ballet celebrated Peter Wright’s 90th birthday with his much-loved production of this beautiful classical ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score. Starring Lauren Cuthbertson, Federico Bonelli, Francesca Hayward and Alexander Campbell.


Peter Wright's interpretation of The Nutcracker has been enchanting children and adults alike since its first performance by The Royal Ballet in 1984. Lev Ivanov's 1892 ballet combined with Tchaikovsky's sumptuous, iconic score are presented in a festive period setting with vivid designs to make this a charming and magical production.


140 minute performance - includes one interval
