This opera with music by Wagner is broadcast live from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London. Wagner’s Ring cycle is one of the greatest works of all opera. Keith Warner’s production is conducted by Antonio Pappano, music director of The Royal Opera, and this final revival is cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers. The full cycle’s four operas journey from the beginning of a world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. This epic myth portrays every type of human emotion in music and ideas of extraordinary power. The Ring is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten. Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is the second opera in the cycle, and features several of the Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Ride of the Valkyries. But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at the centre of this opera, are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyrie daughter, Brünnhilde. Cast members include Stuart Skelton and Emily Magee.

The Old Market, 11a Upper Market Street, Hove

Monday October 29, 7.30pm

Tickets £6/TOM’s Friends 15% off

To celebrate the 90th birthday of the great maestro Ennio Morricone, this is a 50th anniversary screening of one of the most majestic westerns ever made, featuring some of his most iconic Spaghetti Western compositions. Sergio Leone’s follow-up to The Man with No Name trilogy sees villainous would-be tycoon and gunfighter Frank (Henry Fonda, pictured) try to drive the recently widowed Jill (Claudia Cardinale) off her land to make way for a corrupt railway company. However, quiet loner Harmonica (Charles Bronson) and sympathetic outlaw Cheyenne (Jason Robards) offer her protection from Frank and his men. Featuring one of the most breathtaking introductory scenes in cinema history, the film script was largely improvised around the mood of Morricone’s masterful score, resulting in a masterpiece, which many consider one of the greatest films ever made.
