2 Premieres and Live Opera Events from KITAG CINEMAS

With ‘Steve Jobs’ Danny Boyle, director of ‘Trainspotting’ and ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, has not just created the latest film biography. It is much more of a character study, strong in dialogue, which shows the supposedly inspired Apple boss Steve Jobs in a completely different light throughout three episodes. The result: a fantastic drama starring Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet.
 
Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone play the main characters in Woody Allen’s latest film ‘Irrational Man’ about a savvy philosophy professor at loggerheads between two women.
Enough to turn anyone quickly into an ‘Irrational Man’.
 
A completely different type of cinema experience is available with KITAG CINEMAS OPERA LIVE with the ballet ‘Viscera / Afternoon of a Faun...’: Enjoy four short ballets on one evening with this four part piece from the Royal Ballet. Carlos Acosta focuses on the main dramatic ingredients of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of ‘Carmen’. He not only created the choreography, but is also dancing one of the lead roles. Liam Scarlett used Lowell Liebermann’s poignant ‘Piano Concerto No. 1’ as the basis for his similarly bold choreography in ‘Viscera’. Debussy’s stirring score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbins’ choreography of ‘Afternoon of a Faun’, in which two dancers are absorbed by their own reflection while the attraction between them grows.
 
A wonderful cinema week for all.
