On April 11 The RSC’s contemporary production of ‘Macbeth’ marks both Christopher Eccleston’s RSC debut and the return of Niamh Cusack to the Company.

Other highlights include Oscar Wilde’s ‘An Ideal Husband’, a live ballet screening of the Bolshoi’s unique version of ‘Coppélia’ from Moscow, and Puccini’s ‘Madama Butterfly’ will be screened direct from the famous festival Glyndebourne.
