Pulizter Prize-winner Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale. India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he’s as tall as Kalu the thief. 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".

Having been mistakenly apprenticed to a band of soft-hearted Cornish pirates, Frederic is released at the age of 21. He soon meets and falls for the lovely Mabel, daughter of Major-General Stanley. But the Pirate King subsequently realises that Frederic technically has another 63 years to serve! 'The Pirates of Penzance' is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular comic operas. Among its wonderful musical numbers are 'A Policeman's Lot is Not a Happy One' and 'I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General'. Seven times Oscar-nominated director Mike Leigh has always been a huge Gilbert and Sullivan fan - in fact, his 1999 film 'Topsy-Turvy' explored their working relationship.

Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake. White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse.
