London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of King Lear, and you can catch a live screening of the show at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Symphony Space. Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) returns to the National Theatre to direct Simon Russell Beale (Timon of Athens) in the title role of Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Regarded as among Shakespeare's greatest plays, King Lear depicts an aging monarch's descent into madness as his family and country are torn apart by the ambition and jealousy of his children. This sweeping legend depicts the devastating consequences of pride, as King Lear's hubris and his daughters' ambitions destroy not just their own family, but an entire nation as well. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- “Fain’s tone is dark yet athletic; he plays a mean violin…” —<em>The New York Times</em>
It’s a rare treat to experience a Philip Glass premiere, especially as performed by rising star violinist Tim Fain. This multi-media evening features Glass’s new Partita for Solo Violin, pianist Nicholas Britell, a film choreographed and directed by Black Swan’s Benjamin Millepied, the music of Pulitzer Prize-winners Aaron Jay Kernis and William Bolcom, Nico Muhly, Kevin Puts, Lev Zhurbin, and the genre-bending Laura Karpman, all interwoven with films by Kate Hackett and the words of Leonard Cohen.
