Aida on Sydney Harbour (TBC)
Verdi's Egyptian epic comes to Sydney Harbour in this new production screening live at Cineworld cinemas. A rebellion is brewing on Egypt's borders, and for both the oppressor and the oppressed, loves and loyalties are about to be tested. Egypt needs a hero to lead their army against Ethiopia, and the High Priest has chosen Radamès. Egypt's fortunes will turn on his sword, but Radamès has a higher purpose. Through victory in battle, he hopes to win the hand of the beautiful slave girl Aida - handmaiden to the princess Amneris, and, secretly, an Ethiopian princess. As Radamès returns to Egypt in triumph, Aida is forced to make an impossible choice between her love for the Egyptian hero and her loyalty to her father and her defeated homeland. Long after the fireworks have faded over the spectacular setting of Sydney Harbour and Amneris sings her quiet, concluding prayer, you'll see the true mastery of this opera, which is both an historic epic and an utterly relatable human tragedy.

Simon Godwin (Man and Superman) directs George Farquhar's wild comedy of love and cash.

The 'Beaux': Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their 'Stratagem': to marry for money.

Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.

But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

National Theatre Live: Everyman (12A)
BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama's oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre's new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Royal Opera House - Boris Godunov (12A LIVE)
Modest Musorgsky | Live Opera in four acts Sung in Russian | Running time: 3 hours (including 1 interval)

Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky’s historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The originality of the composer’s vision of Pushkin’s play about Tsar Boris Godunov - who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 - was too much for the management of the Imperial Theatres, who demanded changes that were incorporated in the second version of the opera, in which Boris finally had its premiere in 1874. Many commentators, nevertheless, prefer the integrity of the original, which makes few concessions to operatic conventions. Keenly awaited will be Bryn Terfel’s assumption of the title role - one of the most complex characters in opera - while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.

Carlos Acosta focuses on the dramatic essentials of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of Carmen. As well as choreographing the production, Acosta will dance the lead role.

Liam Scarlett has used Lowell Liebermann’s thrilling Piano Concerto No.1 as the inspiration for his similarly audacious choreography in Viscera.

Debussy’s evocative score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbins’s Afternoon of a Faun, which depicts two ballet dancers as absorbed by their own reflections as they are attracted to each other.

George Balanchine’s Tchaikovsky pas de deux uses a fragment of music composed for the 1877 production of Swan Lake for an eight-minute display of ballet bravura and technique.

Royal Opera House - Giselle (12A LIVE)
Live Ballet | Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes (including 1 interval)

Giselle is the quintessential Romantic classic, a love affair that begins in the real world and continues beyond the grave. The ballet’s title role also offers one of the great challenges of the ballet repertory, as Giselle transforms from an innocent peasant girl, duped into love, to a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death. For the ballerina this is a role of two contrasting halves: in Act I she must appear naïve and artless, her dancing alive with an earthy enthusiasm; in Act II she transforms into light and air, her dancing so ethereal as to seem weightless. In Peter Wright’s production, the dual aspect of the ballet is perfectly achieved: the first act dramatized in rich, naturalistic detail and the second with a spectral, moonlit beauty.

The most popular opera of all returns in one of The Royal Opera's best loved stagings, regularly revived since its opening night in 1974 - and now being seen for the very last time. John Copley's keen stagecraft and loving attention to period and dramatic detail make his production a masterpiece of realism, while Julia Trevelyan Oman's designs evoke the atmosphere of 19th-century Paris. Several of today's greatest opera stars return to bid farewell to this sublime staging, notably Anna Netrebko as Mimì, and Joseph Calleja as her lover, Rodolfo. Israeli conductor Dan Ettinger conducts one of Puccini's most emotional and melodious scores, in a revival that promises to go down in Royal Opera history.

Often considered a perfect opera, Le nozze di Figaro represents Mozart’s genius at its most lively and delightful. Based on a play that was originally banned for its political content, the fast-moving libretto creates realistic characters made even more human by Mozart’s outstanding music. David McVicar’s popular staging of this comedy returns in the hands of the leading British conductor Ivor Bolton.

Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th-century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers.. It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera’s most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti’s finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event.

Kenneth MacMillan’s famous version of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy set to Prokofiev’s magnificent score returns to open the 2015/16 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season.

This Romeo and Juliet is rich in the swaggering colour of Verona street life and in sword fights and celebrations, but MacMillan’s focus is always on the complex emotions of the young lovers - especially on Juliet as she journeys through the delirious happiness of first love to a shocked, adult perception of her fate.

Based on Goethe’s novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet’s opera tells the story of the poet Werther’s hopeless love for Charlotte, who is committed to another man.. The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour, - small wonder that Wertheris often considered to be the composer’s finest work. The Royal Opera’s Music Director Antonio Pappano returns to conduct film, theatre and opera director Benoît Jacquot’s classic production. Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo stars as Werther, alongside Joyce DiDonato, who sings her first Charlotte (one of the great French mezzo roles) in this staging.

Royal Opera House - William Tell (12A LIVE)
Opening with what is arguably the most exciting of all operatic overtures, Rossini's final opera helped to lay the foundations of the genre of French grand opéra that dominated European stages throughout the mid-19th century. The opera's theme is liberty, as exemplified in the struggle against Austrian occupation led by the Swiss archer and patriot Guillaume Tell: in the opera's most famous scene, Tell shoots an apple from his son's head, a feat that inspires his countrymen to revolt. Rossini's score is one of his most outstanding, and packed with glorious arias, choruses and ensembles, as those who have heard Antonio Pappano's admired recording - which also features Gerald Finley (Tell), John Osborn (Arnold) and Malin Byström (Mathilde) - will know. The exciting young Italian director Damiano Michieletto makes his debut with what promises to be a spectacular and thought-provoking production.

The Importance Of Being Earnest LIVE (12A LIVE)
Don’t miss celebrated actor and Poirot star David Suchet as the formidable Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s much loved masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest, which is being broadcast LIVE to cinemas from London’s Vaudeville Theatre on 8 October 2015. Directed by Adrian Noble ( Amadeus, The King’s Speech, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Wilde’s superb satire on Victorian manners is one of the funniest plays in the English language - the delightful repartee and hilarious piercing of hypocrisy and pomposity will make you laugh out loud!

Two bachelor friends, the adorable dandy Algernon Moncrieff (Philip Cumbus – regular player at Shakespeare’s Globe) and the utterly reliable John Worthing J.P., (Downton Abbey’s Michael Benz) lead double lives to court the attentions of the exquisitely desirable Gwendolyn Fairfax (Emily Barber) and Cecily Cardew (Imogen Doel). The gallants must then grapple with the riotous consequences of their deceptions – and with the formidable Lady Bracknell.
