NT: London Road Live Film Premiere - Including Q&A with Film Makers and Cast (15)

LONDON ROAD documents the events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. The film follows the community who found themselves at the epicentre of the tragic events, and is based on interviews conducted with the road's real residents. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, LONDON ROAD tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences. This unmissable premiere event will feature an exclusive Q&A following the screening with the key cast and crew, broadcast live from London.

Opera: Aida on Sydney Harbour (Not Yet Certified)

In Aida, Verdi masterfully puts the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe: where kingdoms rise and fall and the sands of time grind onwards. There could be no grander setting for such an opera than Sydney Harbour itself, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun. But amid all of the spectacle, the famous 'Triumphal March', battle scenes and ancient temples, there's an emotional heart. Long after the fireworks have faded from the sky and Amneris sings her quiet, concluding prayer, you'll see the true mastery of this opera: it is at once an historic epic and an utterly relatable human tragedy. Sung in Italian with English Subtitles.

ROH Live Ballet: Carmen, Viscera, Afternoon of a Faun, Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux (12A)

Enjoy four short ballets in one evening with this quadruple programme from The Royal Ballet. Carlos Acosta focuses on the dramantic essentials of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of Carmen. Liam Scarlett has used Lowell Liebermann's thrilling Piano Concerto No.1 as the inspiration for his similarly audacious choreography in Viscera. Debussy's evocative score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbin's Afternoon of a Faun which depicts two ballet dancers as absorbed by their own reflections as they are attracted to each other. George Balanchine's Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux uses a fragment of music composed for the 1877 production of Swan Lake for an eight-minute display of a ballet bravura and technique.

Peter Wright's enchanting production with its wondrously growing Christmas tree and a rousing battle between the villainous Mouse King and an army of toy soldiers, mines the colour of Tchaikovsky's score, retaining exquisite surviving fragments of the original Ivanov choreography.
