Mary Shelley's 1818 horror classic, Frankenstein, gets a 21st-century update in this innovative British production, directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) and adapted by Nick Dear. The high-definition recording was made on the London Stage of the acclaimed National Theatre, and now this 2011 broadcast returns to the big screen as part of the National Theatre's 50th anniversary celebrations. The classic tale of a mad scientist and his ghoulish creation, the production features actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting), who both won Olivier Awards for alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature.

A rare New York appearance by Italian guitarist Emanuele Segre in an evening-length work about life, love, and loss, narrated by Symphony Space's very own Isaiah Sheffer with text by Nobel prize-winning Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez and music by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
With hands of dazzling skill and solid technique, Emanuele Segre offers a clean sound and is known for his passionate performance style. Joined by narrator Isaiah Sheffer, the two bring to life Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's evening length work for guitar and narrator, Platero Y Yo, (1914; Platero and I) with poetry by one of Spain's most popular poets, Juan Ramón Jiménez, who won the Nobel prize in 1956. Jiménez' work is a entertaining memoir about his travels through Spain with his beloved little donkey, a profound musing on what makes us all human.
