Die Entführung aus dem Serail was written at the order of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II. For source material, Mozart turned to a popular farce of his day about two pairs of European lovers, one noble and the other their servants, who are trying to escape from the harem of a Turkish pasha and his amusingly sleazy overseer. The work uses spoken dialogue and separate musical numbers in the form of a Singspiel, or “sung play.” Twenty years on since the death of the great director, who from 1951 staged legendary operas at La Scala, such as Macbeth, Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni, to name but a few, Teatro alla Scala is proposing new staging, yet calling to the podium the man who conducted it the first time round - the great Zubin Mehta. The dizzying role of Konstanze is sung by Lenneke Ruiten, much applauded in Lucio Silla in 2015, with the emerging Mozart tenor Mauro Peter in the role of Belmonte.

Zubin Mehta conducts a cast led by Fabio Sartori and Julianna Di Giacomo in the acclaimed Don Carlo, Verdi’s opera about love, ambition and intrigue in 16th-century Spain, based upon the life of Carlos, Prince of Asturias (1545-1568). Carlos was betrothed to Elizabeth of Valois (1545-1568), the daughter of France’s King Henry II but for political reasons, Elizabeth was ultimately married to Carlos’ father Philip II of Spain. Based on the 1787 dramatic poem by Friedrich Schiller, Don Carlo was first performed at the Paris Opéra in 1867 where politics and religion were dangerously entwined. Verdi made extensive revisions to the opera over the following 20 years, and this production follows the four-act 1886 version performed at one of the newest Opera Houses in the world, the Opera di Firenze. The Opera di Firenze has pioneered the perception of opera worldwide, demonstrating it can be both traditional and innovative. Their blend of the classic and contemporary puts Opera di Firenze at the centre of opera, guiding its future for years to come.

In Universal Pictures' Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend's family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the- parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).

At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele (Key and Peele) and produced by Blumhouse's Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, The Box), Peele and Edward H. Hamm Jr. (The Box, Bad Words). The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton "Lil Rel" Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete's Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).

Futaba lives in a small town with her daughter Azumi. Their house connects to the family-run bathhouse, which has been closed since husband and father Kazuhiro left the family for another woman. Everything changes when Futaba is diagnosed with terminal cancer, giving her only months to live. Newly determined, she decides she is going to make the most of her remaining time by reuniting her family and reopening the closed bathhouse. It’s a journey that will lead to new friends, some surprising additions to the family, and even a few long-secret revelations coming to light... Rie Miyazawa (Pale Moon, The Twilight Samurai) won the Japan Academy Prize for Best Actress for her incredible lead performance in the latest film from Ryota Nakano. Futaba is an endlessly compelling character: an utterly determined and charming woman who confronts her diagnosis with confidence and bravery. Equally impressive is Hana Sugisaki as Azumi - a performance that won the film its second major Japan Academy Prize. The film itself is as heartbreaking as it is funny, a crowd-pleaser in the best sense of the word. While there’ll be few dry eyes in the house, this is also a warm and witty film about one woman and the life-changing impact she has on even those who only briefly encounter her.

Acclaimed director Phil Grabsky brings to the cinema and TV screens around the world the life and music of Fryderyk Chopin – one of the greatest composers of all time.

His grave in Paris remains a place of pilgrimage and his music continues to sell out concert halls worldwide – but who exactly was this man who was terrified of public performance, who fled his Polish homeland for Paris never to return, took up with the most notorious transvestite in France, rarely gave public performances and, despite a life of ill-health, wrote some of the deepest and most powerful music ever written? How exactly did a young Polish boy rise to such heady heights?

For four years, Phil Grabsky has travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin.

By talking to acclaimed musical historians such as Jeremy Siepmann and bringing to the screen performances by such esteemed musicians as Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Vogt, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and Kevin Kenner he hopes to answer those questions.

Renowned stage and screen star Juliet Stevenson provides narration. David Dawson brings life to the letters of Chopin himself.

Haruko (played by Hana and Alice’s Yu Aoi) is stuck in a rut. Rapidly hurtling towards her 30s, she’s stuck in a dead-end job. She has fallen for her eccentric neighbour Soga, but he constantly rebuffs any affection she shows. One day, Haruko mysteriously disappears without a trace. A wanted poster featuring her face catches the attention of Manabu and Yukio, two wannabe graffiti artists. On a whim, they create a stencil of the poster and start spraying it onto walls around the town. They’re soon joined by the giddy 20-year-old Aina, and within days the trio have unexpectedly transformed Haruko’s image into a pop culture phenomenon. Meanwhile, a group of roving schoolgirls is being blamed for a series of random attacks on young men in the area... Japanese Girls Never Die is a strange and wonderful examination of modern Japanese youth. Its characters are full life and energy, but are also frustrated and directionless. Adapting a popular novel, director Daigo Matsui has created a lively and surprising piece of work that casually leaps back and forth between a number of different subplots while refusing to conform to genre norms. The visuals are vibrant, the music is great, and the film regularly subverts expectations. Matsui takes a risk in revealing some key story details from the off, but it pays off: trying to put all the pieces together is one of the great pleasures of this extremely inventive and confident film.

200 years after the success of Rossini’s La Gazza Ladra, where one spectator during the Premiere at La Scala in 1817 described that the opera “aroused such furore that at every moment the audiences stood up en masse to cover Rossini in acclaim,” Riccardo Chailly now brings this celebrated tragicomic opera back to the stage where it was first performed. A masterpiece of grace and brilliance, La Gazza Ladra is adept at describing the excesses of power without prevaricating. In this production, the director and co-founder of the Teatro dell’Elfo and Oscar winner for Mediterraneo makes his debut at La Scala to elegantly relate the story of the servant Ninetta who is wrongly accused of theft. The cast brings together the cream of the new generation of Rossinian bel canto with Rosa Feola debuting, tenor Edgardo Rocha,basses Alex Esposito and Paolo Bordogna, as well as Teresa Lervolino and the expert bel canto of Michele Pertusi.

George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while the fire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in 'Diamonds'. Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.

This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after World War II, and one of the Company's first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck's brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton's beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi's opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.

Puccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria 'Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

Sachio is a very successful but arrogant writer who is cheating on his wife Natsuko. During a trip away, Natsuko and her friend Yuki are killed in a bus accident. Sachio - whose celebrity status has led to media interest in the tragedy - initially finds himself unable to grieve. Ultimately, however, his life begins to fall apart as the reality of his wife’s absence hits him. During the public inquiries into the crash, he encounters Yuki’s husband Yoichi. Yoichi’s job as a truck driver has left him in a tight spot, unable to stay at home with his two young children. Sachio cautiously agrees to look after the kids while their father is out of town. The Long Excuse is a poignant and sensitively observed character study that never dips into mawkishness. Director Miwa Nishikawa handles the material with genuine compassion and thoughtfulness, always providing the talented cast with the space they need to develop their characters. Masashiro Motoki - star of the Oscar-winning Departures, who has only recently made his big-screen comeback - turns in a beautifully constrained performance as Sachio, while a warm and lively Pistol Takehara is delightful as Yoichi. The pair are, however, given a run for their money by young Kenshin Fujita and Tamaki Shiratori as the two children attempting to come to terms with their mother’s absence.
