International Film:
YOU WILL REMEMBER ME

May 21st,
3pm and 7pm

Edouard, a public figure and retired History teacher, is slowly starting to lose his memory. Accustomed to speaking on all the stands, he must make himself more discreet, even if he believes he still has a lot to say. Edouard's son-in law hires his daughter Bérénice to help watch over him, even though she is a little lost herself. Their relationship will lead Edouard to revisit a time from his personal history that he had chosen to forget, and Bérénice to find meaning in her own life.

Opera Film:
TURANDOT
Opera Australia
On Sydney Harbor

July 9th,
7:00pm

Puccini’s tale of love and death comes to Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour in this spectacular and thoughtful production.

Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng brings a fresh eye to the fable of the ice-hearted princess and the prince who seeks her love. Shi-Zheng’s work forms a bridge between Chinese and Western artistic approaches, drawing on the Hollywood film tradition, theatrical acrobatics and traditional Chinese opera to create works that thrill visually and cut to the heart.

Dragana Radakovic stars as Turandot alongside Riccardo Massi as Calaf and Hyeseoung Kwon as Liù. Puccini’s score soars out across the harbour under conductor Brian Castles-Onion, with the timeless ‘Nessun Dorma’ at the opera’s climax.

GALLANT INDIES

Based on Jean-Philippe Rameau’s opera-ballet that was directed by Clément Cogitore for the Opéra National de Paris.

LOST ILLUSIONS

August 27th,
4pm and 7pm

Lucien de Rubempré (Benjamin Voisin) is an ambitious and unknown aspiring poet in 19th century France. He leaves his provincial town, arriving in Paris.

Lucien makes a friend in another young writer, Etienne Lousteau (Vincent Lacoste), who introduces him to the business of journalism where a salon of wordsmiths and wunderkinds make or break the reputations of actors and artists with insouciant impunity.

Lucien agrees to write rave reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience and soon discovers that the written word can be an instrument of both beauty and deceit. Xavier Giannoli’s sumptuous adaptation of Honoré de Balzac’s epic novel, Lost Illusions is a ravishing vision of the birth of modern media.
