Verdi, Marco Armiliato: Il Trovatore
Libretto By Salvadore Cammarano
And Leone Emanuele Вardare
,Based On The Play El Trovator By Antonio Garcia Gutierrez.
Acclaim for this Trovatore: "Alvarez made a stalwart, passionate, masculine figure... Radvanovsky has all the technical devices necessary for Leonora, and she is, moreover, a passionate actress ... Hvorostovsky sang with superb, flawless line, total control and long, flowing, high notes... Zajick held down Azucena powerfully, lacking nothing obvious of the mad gypsy's force of character... The opera's end I have never seen stayed or acted more convincingly" (Opera Today).

Manrico - Marcelo Alvarez
Ferrando - Stefan Kocan

The Doors: From The Outside
This brand new documentary film tells the story of The Doors, not from the perspective of the surviving members - as has been told so many time before - but from the recollections, memories, stories and anecdotes of those who knew the group and its members best.
Our panel is headed by a woman who was as close to Jim Morrison as anyone ever was; his widow Patricia Kennealy-Morrison. Patricia has rarely spoken on film about her relationship with Jim, or about her own memories of The Doors. This is a once in a lifetime contribution from someone who knew just about everything that went on.
Next up is Billy James, the man who "discovered" Jim Morrison and an early incarnation of The Doors. Billy signed them to their first deal with Columbia Records, and gained the trust and respect of the entire group. Here he tells all about those very early days when The Doors were known only to a select few.
Richard Goldstein – ex-editor of Village Voice and close friend of the band is on hand too with his anecdote-heavy version of events, as is Mark Benno, the legendary blues musician whose searing guitar graced the L.A. Woman album.
The very finest Rock journalists and writers, and those who lived through and were affected by The Doors' music as it was being released also contribute to this most original documentary film. In this regard, we are joined by Robert Christgau, Johnny Rogan, Dave DiMartino, Ritchie Unterberger, Doug Sundling, and Jim Morrison’s biographer James Riordan.
The programme is further enhanced by the rarest footage of the band in existence, classic live and studio musical performances, seldom seen photographs, news clips, location shots and much more....

U2: Achtung Baby. A Classic Album Under Review
Achtung Baby was the album that fired U2 into the 90s. Displaying a broader musical palette than before and with a newfound smattering of irony, the four-piece dramatically overhauled their traditional approach to songwriting. The so-called 'band of the 80s' were moving on. They now reflected their moods in their music, had loosened up and were taking sonic risks - and every single one paid off.
U2 Achtung Baby: A Classic Album Under Review offers a previously unobtainable level of insight into the band during the recording of their most dynamic and well respected album. Via the use of live footage, long forgotten videos and the review, criticism and insight of a panel of highly opinionated experts, this package delivers the finest documentary film yet to emerge on Dublin's favourite sons....
