TICKETS: £5 (Regal Film Society members £3) 

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Bohemian Rhapsody (Cert 12A)   Dir Bryan Singer      UK/USA 2019        134 mins

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury who shattered stereotyping and convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers in the world.

The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, when Mercury, facing life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the great rock music performances of all time.

Gounod FAUST

Tuesday, 30th April 2019 - 6:45pm

TICKETS: Adults £15.00, Film Society Members & Friends of the Regal £12.50, Students £10.00. 

The Royal Opera
Gounod FAUST
Michael Fabiano | Erwin Schrott | Diana Damrau
Conductor: Dan Ettinger | Director: David McVicar
LIVE: Tuesday 30 April 2019 [6.45pm] Note start time.
Approximate running time: 225 minutes including one interval
Sung in French with English subtitles

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. 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.
