Hitting the Apex (12A)
Narrated by Brad Pitt, HITTING THE APEX is the inside story of six fighters - six of the fastest motorcycle racers of all time - and of the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport. It's the story of what is at stake for all of them: all that can be won, and all that can be lost, when you go chasing glory at over two hundred miles an hour - on a motorcycle.

The film portrays the intense rivalry between riders, but also captures evidence of the strong bonds and camaraderie that can exist in top level professional sport: the extreme competition between Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa; the friendship between Rossi and rising star Marco Simoncelli. And the phenomenal rise of the young rookie Marc Marquez and his attempt to become the fastest and most brilliant rider of them all.

From director Mark Neale of FASTER and FASTEST, HITTING THE APEX takes us to the heart of this exhilarating sport at a time when the speeds have never been higher or the talent on the track more brilliant.

Bad Boy Bubby (18)
He's been in his room for 35 years. It's time to let him out!

Bubby's entire knowledge of the universe stops at the walls of the two room slum he has been confined to for the thirty-five years since his birth. He knows of the existence of only himself and his mother. He plays with his feral cat and the cockroaches. Mom vaguely looks after him. Until Pop comes home. Suddenly, the universe is a more complicated place than Bubby had thought. Theories of existence and behaviour are overthrown in a wild revolution that lead Bubby to seeing "Outside" for the first time. "Outside" is a very, very strange, wonderful and terrible place, with People in it, and Music, and Pizzas, and Trees. It is a place where survival depends not on who you are, but on who you seem to be, and if there's one thing Bubby's thirty-five years of deprivation have prepared him for, it's how to seem like someone else.

This screening is part of the Scalarama film festival which runs locally and nationally throughout September.

Juliet is one of the most coveted of all ballerina roles, and as McMillan’s ballet enters its 50th year it resonates as deeply with audiences today as when it was first seen half a century ago.

Encore of Ballet in two acts | Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes (including 1 interval)

Christmas simply wouldn’t be Christmas without The Royal Ballet’s classic production of The Nutcracker. Loosely based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, it opens with the Christmas festivities of little Clara and her family and prog resses through a sequence of dreams and enchantments that take Clara on her magical journey to the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sweets. Peter Wright’s enchanting production with its wondrously growing Christmas tree and a rousing battle between the villainous Mouse King and an army of toy soldiers, mines the colour of Tchaikovsky’s score, retaining exquisite surviving fragments of the original Ivanov choreography, incl uding the beautiful pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.

Royal Opera House - Rhapsody / The Two Pigeons (12A LIVE)
Frederick Ashton | Two Live Ballets | Running time:tbc (including 1 interval)

This delightful Frederick Ashton double bill opens with his setting of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, using the music’s dark turbulence and brilliance to inspire some of his most thrilling choreography. Witty, impassioned and sublime this ballet was the pinnacle of Ashton’s romantic style. The second half of the programme features Ashton’s delicate, deceptively comic The Two Pigeons - a work rarely performed and a real treat for ballet fans everywhere.

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.

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.

Gaetano Donizetti | Live Opera in three acts Sung in Italian | Running time: 2 hours 50 minutes (including 1 interval)

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. The title role will be sung by Diana Damrau,, an expert in the coloratura repertory, while American tenor Charles Castronovo takes on that of her secret lover, the reckless and passionate Edgardo.
