THE ISLANDS AND THE WHALES In their remote home in the North Atlantic the Faroe Islanders have always eaten what nature could provide, hunting whales and seabirds through generations. But today they face a grave threat to that tradition. This is not the controversy surrounding whaling, but a danger coming from the whales themselves, as the effects of our ever more polluted oceans have made the whales toxic. What once secured the survival of the Faroese now endangers their children, leaving the Islanders with a choice between health and tradition. Mike Day / UK 2016 / 81 min

EVENT CINEMA ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE: THE

WINTER’S TALE

Christopher Wheeldon created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance for The Royal Ballet in 2014. Building on the success of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, this production received ecstatic praise at its premiere, acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for its intelligent, distinctive and emotionally powerful story, told through exquisite dance.

ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE: CARMEN This is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in the entire art form – numbers such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song have permeated the popular consciousness as little else has. The opera’s heady combination of passion, sensuality and violence initially proved too much for the stage, and it was a critical failure on its 1875 premiere. Bizet died shortly after, and never learned of the spectacular success his Carmen would achieve. Tue 6 Mar, 6.45pm Sun 11 Mar, 2pm Tickets: £15 / £12.50 Conc & Friends English Surtitles
