A new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, will be broadcast live to cinemas 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 (The Audience, West End; The Day of the Jackal, ITV) and Freddie Fox (The Judas Kiss, West End; Cucumber & Banana, Channel 4; E4), Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber (Silk, BBC; Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s Globe), Olivier Award-winner Nathaniel Parker (This House, West End; Wolf Hall, West End & Broadway), Sally Bretton (Not Going Out, BBC; King Lear, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen, BBC).

‘’It started with an idea Bring together a group of remarkable people to see if we could become something more.’’ If ever there was a time when the world needed superheroes, it’s now.

As Iron-Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the rest of the Avengers reunite for battle, it doesn’t take long to realise they alone cannot stop Thanos. With the Guardians of the Galaxy joining the fray there might just be some hope of survival at the end of this seemingly unwinnable war.

Vivian (Jane Fonda), Diane (Diane Keaton), Sharon (Candice Bergen), and Carol (Mary Steenburgen) are four women in their prime, living out their golden years properly and politely. They cook delicious food, drink good wine, and meet up to discuss literature at their monthly book club. But everything changes when they pass up the usual, critically-acclaimed titles in favour of the famously risqué “Fifty Shades of Grey”. Initially, not everyone is convinced that E. L. James’ erotic romance is the sort of thing that four ‘older’ women should be reading. But once they crack the spine, there’s no going back Beyond the typical cringing, giggling and blushing, the novel has an unexpected impact on the women. They begin to look at the romance in their lives or lack thereof and realise they want something more. With each other’s support, they set out on a mission to inject a bit of fire into their love lives. Diane and Sharon decide to brave the dating scene, Carol tries to spice up her marriage, and Vivian reunites with blast from the past (Don Johnson). What happens next is a steep learning curve full of awkward and hilarious events. Each of the women learns that, just because they’re in the later chapters of their lives, it doesn’t mean they can’t be the best ones. The directorial debut from Bill Holderman (producer of A Walk in the Woods), this fun and heart-warming comedy brings together a stronghold of talent, including Academy Award Winners Diane Keaton (Hampstead, Annie Hall), Jane Fonda (Our Souls at Night, Coming Home), and Mary Steenburgen (The Discovery, Melvin and Howard) and Academy Award Nominated Candice Bergen (Rules Don’t Apply, Starting Over).

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN journeys from the streets of Paris to the heart of a superb exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, whose extensive collection of Degas’ works is the most representative in Britain. With exclusive access to view rare and diverse works, this film tells a fascinating story of Degas’ pursuit for perfection through both experimentation with new techniques and lessons learnt from studying the past masters. Sometimes frustrated by his own failings, Degas was consumed by obsessive principles and failing eyesight but his determination to capture everyday life was evident in every mark he made. Never fully satisfied, many of Degas’ drawings and sculptures were kept in private during his lifetime but, now through close examination, they can be seen as some of the most beautifully detailed and expressive works in the modern era. Using written accounts by friends and commentators, and the narration of letters written by Degas himself, this film reveals a more complex truth behind one of the most influential French artists of the late 19th-century and serves as an exploration of the complex workings of Degas’ artistic mind. “Art is not a matter of what you see, but what you make other people see” Edgar Degas

Wagner’s Ring cycle is one of the greatest works of all opera. Keith Warner’s production is conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, and this final revival is cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers. The full cycle's four operas journey from the beginning of a world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. This epic myth portrays every type of human emotion in music and ideas of extraordinary power. The Ring is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten. Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is the second opera in the cycle, and features several of the Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Ride of the Valkyries. But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at the centre of this opera are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyrie daughter, Brünnhilde.

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight MARTIN YATES Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri. Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’ – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidityand precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.

From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

In Maquia’s home, nobody ages past adolescence. While people may grow and mature, the clan all remain as teenagers forever. Maquia is no different, living in an adolescent body, never having to worry about aging or death. Despite the peace and tranquillity that the clan enjoy, Maquia is lonely. She has no parents, and few close friends, leaving her wondering what alternative path may be waiting just outside of her home. An endless life lays before her, bringing into question the benefits of living forever. When an army hellbent on discovering the clan’s secret to immortality invades the land, all thoughts of peace evaporate. After Maquia’s friend, Leilia, is taken by the army, and her crush disappears, she only has one thought in her mind: to escape a similar fate. Maquia soon finds herself in a forest, homeless and alone, until she stumbles across a baby boy named Erial, who is also lost. The two only have one another, but as Erial grows and ages, can a girl stuck in a teenager’s body grow with him? And how will Maquia cope with Erial’s mortal life, when she herself cannot age? Maquia is the first full-feature anime by Mari Okada, following her prolific work across television and screenplays for films such as The Anthem of the Heart and My Teacher. Final Fantasy character designer Akihiko Yoshida provides the original character design, with a score by Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell).

Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf. From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide. The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballet's many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.

Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

Max the Rottweiler (voiced by Ludacris) is the not the sort of canine you’ll find at the grooming salon. A police dog who works for the NYPD, he’s rough, tough, and always willing to get his paws dirty. When he’s selected to help out with a high-profile undercover mission, Max can’t stop his tail from wagging – until he finds out he must enter the world’s most exclusive dog show as part of the assignment! A baby panda has been stolen, and it’s suspected that the Canini Invitational Dog Show is being used as a front for animal smuggling. Max and his new human handler Frank (Will Arnett) travel to Las Vegas and compete in the show, allowing them to investigate the case without arising suspicion. From mud baths to ballet lessons, Max begrudgingly throws himself into the celebrity lifestyle. With help from Philippe the chihuahua (voiced by Stanley Tucci) and Mattie the dog trainer (Natasha Lyonne), he begins to set aside his macho mentality and transform into a pretty convincing show dog. But it’s not just an external transformation that Max needs – if he and Frank are going to save the panda and catch the criminals, this tough dog cop must abandon his lone-wolf mentality and learn how to work as a team. Raja Gosnell, who brought us The Smurfs and Beverly Hills Chihuahua, directs this family comedy, which features Will Arnett (The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature) and Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) as the human talent, along with the vocal skills of Ludacris (Fast & Furious 5, 6, 7, and 8), Shaquille O’Neal (The Lego Movie), and Stanley Tucci (Transformers: The Last Night).

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production that has already garnered fivestar reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires. Aleksandrs Antonenko and Eva-Maria Westbroek head the cast and Royal Opera Chorus, conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera. This is an engrossing portrayal of a tortured creative artist and a gripping piece of gothic storytelling.

“I envy the Japanese” Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based – VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam – one can see why. Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh. Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan – through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists – Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction. After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find – the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.

The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place? Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years. The film thus explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key early periods – the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to great heights.
