Comedy-drama Made in Italy is a heart-warming father son story set in glorious Tuscany about bohemian London artist Robert (Neeson), who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair…
Renovations go badly, with father and son soon finding themselves at odds. Robert’s comical lack of DIY experience leads him to seek help from some colourful locals including the no nonsense Kate (Duncan), an ex-pat making her living selling villas who quickly captures his attention. For Jack, the state of the house seems to mirror his search for memories of happier times with his mother. He soon falls for Natalia (Bilello), a vivacious young Italian chef, who restores both body and soul with delights from her local trattoria – until the pair find their developing relationship in jeopardy from Natalia’s jealous and threatening ex-husband. As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, they also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.

Carlos Saura’s film Carmen was an international box office hit in 1983.
Choreographed by the legendary Antonio Gades to the music of Bizet, the film interweaves dance rehearsals with romantic encounters, characters’ fights with choreographed rumbles, and a comical patchwork of ‘March of the Toreadors’. Gades plays a burgeoning choreographer searching for a dancer to take on the role of Carmen and then falls in love with his choice. As the film develops, the flamenco dancers become indistinct from their roles. The result is mayhem and magic.

Handel’s tale of intrigue and impropriety in ancient Rome arrives in cinemas with star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the controlling, power-hungry Agrippina and Harry Bicket conducting. Sir David McVicar’s production ingeniously reframes the action of this black comedy about the abuse of power to “the present,” where it should loudly resonate. The all-star cast features mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey as Agrippina’s son and future emperor Nerone, soprano Brenda Rae as the seductive Poppea, countertenor Iestyn Davies as the ambitious officer Ottone, and bass Matthew Rose as the weary emperor Claudius.
- Composer: George Frideric Handel
- Librettist: Vincenzo Grimani
- Agripinna: Joyce DiDonato
- Conductor: Harry Bicket
- Estimated run time: 3 HRS 35 MINS
