Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a ‘first-class person’, while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum’s first female graduate.

ENO - Carmen (12A AL)
English National Opera presents - Carmen, Justina Gringyte stars in the first revival of Calixto Bieito's acclaimed production of Bizet's fiery opera, broadcast live in stunning HD. Young solider Jose is so entranced by sultry gypsy temptress Carmen (Justina Gringyte) that he deserts the army. But Carmen subsequently falls for glamorous, dashing toreador Escamillo. Arguably the world's most popular opera, Bizet's red-blooded depiction of lust and tragedy scandalised early audiences. First staged at the London Coliseum in 2012, Catalan director Calixto Bieito's fresh, bold and hugely acclaimed production updates the setting to the dying days of Franco's Spain. In Bieito's 'Carmen', those gorgeous melodies and red hot Spanish rhythms soundtrack a steamy battle of the sexes fought out in the evocative arena of the Spanish bullring. Mezzo soprano Justina Gringyte makes her ENO role debut as Carmen in this revival of a staging that was hailed by The Guardian as "intelligent, persuasive and intense".

Impressionists (TBC)
They are the world’s most popular artists. The works of Cezanne, Monet, Degas and their compatriots fetch tens of millions of dollars. But just who were they really? Why and how did they paint? What lies behind their enduring appeal?

To help answer these questions, the film has secured unique access to a major new exhibition focussing on the 19th century Parisian art collector Paul Durand-Ruel, the outspoken champion of Impressionism. This eagerly anticipated exhibition is perhaps the most comprehensive ever held about the Impressionists. Durand-Ruel’s brave decision to exhibit the Impressionists in New York in 1886 introduced enlightened, wealthy Americans to modern French painting. In doing so, he not only filled great American galleries with Impressionist masterworks but also kept impressionism alive at a time when it faced complete failure. This energetic and revealing film will tell his remarkable story along with that of the Impressionists themselves.

Ivan The Terrible (12A AL)
As young Ivan IV is crowned, he has to choose one of the 13 Boyar daughters to be his wife and tsarina. He selects Anastasia, and the two eventually fall deeply in love. When the Boyars plot against him and poison his beloved wife, Tsar Ivan finds himself surrounded by enemies. Haunted by dark thoughts and phantoms, he slowly sinks into madness. Drawing on the music composed by Prokofiev for the 1944 Eisenstein film, Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. Yuri Grigorovich's powerful and fascinating epic dramatises Ivan the Terrible's controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th-century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigour, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colours of medieval Russia. Recently revived, Ivan the Terrible is an essential part of the company's repertoire, a 20th-century classic and a wonderful theatrical experience. Music by Sergei Prokofiev originally composed for the Sergei Eisenstein film (1944) Original choreography by Yuri Grigorovich (1975) Revived for his re-entry in the Bolshoi’s repertoire in November 2012 A historical ballet = a rarity in the classical repertoire A unique lyrical epic which recounts the life of Czar Ivan the Terrible in 16 th century Russia A “powerful choreographic fresco” full of vigor, strength and energy (Yuri Grigorovich’s trademark) A ballet rarely seen on stage enhanced by the unparallelled Bolshoi dancers’ ability to interpret character roles A 20th century classic and a unique theatrical experience

Maxine Peake as Hamlet (TBC)
From its sell-out run at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre comes this unique and critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare's tragic Hamlet. In this stripped-back, fresh and fast-paced version, BAFTA nominee Maxine Peake creates a Hamlet for now, giving a performance hailed as "delicately ferocious" by The Guardian and "a milestone Hamlet" by the Manchester Evening News.

Hamlet is Shakespeare’s most iconic work. The play explodes with big ideas and is the ultimate story of loyalty, love, betrayal, murder and madness. Hamlet's father is dead and Denmark has crowned a new king. Consumed by grief, he struggles to exact revenge, with devastating consequences.

This groundbreaking stage production, directed by Sarah Frankcom, was the Royal Exchange’s fastest-selling show in a decade. Alongside Maxine Peake as the eponymous prince, a number of other roles, including Polonious and Rosencrantz, are also played by women. Hamlet is brought to cinemas by director Margaret Williams, whose Written on Skin for the Royal Opera House/BBC won the Gramophone Contemporary Award and the Diapason d’or, and producers Anne Beresford and Debbie Gray, the team behind the highly successful cinema broadcast of Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh Beach.
