This month's planned programme allows for the cancelled events
Subject to further Load Shedding, our first film in April will be BREATHE a special promotion by the Breede River Winelands Rotary Club, in support of Rotary’s world-wide “Polio Plus “campaign and will be introduced by Rotarian Dr Sue Hall, who is an epidemiologist and whose particular interest is the changing patterns of infections that can be prevented by immunisation and a two-month sabbatical in India in 1983 prompted her ongoing interest in the elimination of polio.
The other film will be A NIGHT TO REMEMBER - the first Titanic Disaster Movie! The Titanic hit an iceberg on the 14th of April 107 years ago.
And the opera: Bellini’s NORMA in a new production from The Met and starring Sondra Radvanovsky, Joyce DiDonato and Joseph Calleja.
For the Easter weekend we have on Good Friday, Beethoven’s MISSA SOLEMNIS with the Staatskapella Dreden conducted by Christian Thielemann and on Easter Sunday, Mahler’s second Symphony THE RESSURECTION with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig conducted by Riccardo Chailly.
The films in May will be musicals: THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW with Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon; CABARET starring Liza Minelli and Michael York and FUNNY GIRL with Barbara Streisand and Omar Sharif.
And to celebrate Margot Fonteyn’s 100th birthday, Tony Palmer’s very interesting documentary film MARGOT, a must for all ballet lovers.
We shall also have two operas, both by Verdi and both featuring Anna Netrebko, IL TROVATORE and GIOVANNA D’ARCO.
