Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke, falls in love with Orlando at a wrestling match. Her usurping uncle, jealous of her popularity banishes her from court. Disguised as a boy she leaves with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone, to seek out her father in the Forest of Arden. Here she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love and wooing. A firm favourite among Shakespeare's comedies, and including some of his best loved characters, As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and love-notes; poetry and brilliant conversation; gentle satire, slapstick and passion. Award-winning director Thea Sharrock (Equus, The Emperor Jones) directed at the Globe for the first time and on her first ever Shakespeare production. This production evoked traditional staging and costume.

Downfall starts and closes with the reflections of Hitler's secretary, Traudl Junge, who was in the bunker during the last days of Hitler's life. The film charts the events of these last ten days from 20 April, "Fuehrer's birthday", to 30 April when he committed suicide. Bruno Ganz portrays Hitler as a half-crazed man who keeps trying to delude himself that the final victory is nigh until a series of defeats breaks his spirit and he resigns himself to his end. But it is not only Hitler's downfall that is portrayed. The film tells the tale of Goering's and Himmler's desertion, and of the Goebbels' murder of their children and suicide.

This epic film retells an episode of Taiwanese history not known to many. Between 1895 and 1945, Taiwan was a Japanese colony, but small groups of the original indigenous tribes remained scattered around the island. In 1930 Mouna Rudo, the leader of the Seediq tribe, settled around Mount Chilai, forged a coalition with other Seediq tribal leaders and plotted a rebellion against their Japanese colonial masters. Their battle would be initially successful, but how could they match the Japanese military aircraft and poison gas? Original title: Sai De Ke Ba Lai: Tai Yang Gi. In Japanese.

German star tenor Jonas Kaufmann makes his long-awaited role debut in Verdi's thrilling Shakespeare-based opera Otello, in a -thoughtprovoking and stylishly abstract production' (The Evening Standard) directed by Keith Warner and conducted by Verdi expert Antonio Pappano the first new staging of the Italian composer's final tragedy at the Royal Opera House in 30 years. The dramatic part of Otello, who is led into the trap of jealousy by his scheming rival Iago and kills his innocent wife Desdemona out of suspicion and fury, is sung 'most arrestingly' (The Guardian) by Jonas Kaufmann. He offers 'a supremely burnished baritonal tenor with a ringing, heroic top but capable of extraordinary lyrical beauty in more intimate scenes'.
