Don Pasquale from Glyndebourne
Mariame Clément, Enrique Mazzola | 2014 | 128m

Don Pasquale from GlyndebourneDonizetti’s ‘Don Pasquale’ is regarded as a cornerstone of the Italian comic opera tradition because its characters are no mere commedia dell’arte stereotypes, but complex, vulnerable human beings. This is brought to the fore in Clément’s sensitive and perceptive production. Acclaimed buffo baritone Alessandro Corbelli sings the title role while Danielle de Niese is Norina.

In Partnership with the Dumfries Branch of Friends of Scottish Opera.

Sing Street
John Carney I GB/Ire | 2015 | 106m | 12A

Sing StreetSet in 1980’s Dublin ‘Sing Street’ tells the tale of lovestruck teenager Conor who after moving schools decides to impress a girl by asking her to be in his band’s video. There’s only one drawback - he doesn’t have a band. From his oddball circle of friends he is quickly able to form one and with inspiration from watching ‘80’s music videos the teens are transformed into expert musicians.

From director John Carney (Once, Begin Again) this is a hugely funny coming of age tale.

Contains infrequent strong language, drug use, moderate sex references, smoking.
