Winner of four Russian National Film Academy Awards (Nika), Van Goghs sensitively explores the complicated relationship between an artist, Mark, and his oppressive father, a famous conductor.

An exceptionally moving film about families, and how they shape our expectations from – and perceptions of – life.

Dec-11-19 03:00 PM Teatro Real, Madrid: Der Fliegende Holländer Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre

Opera on Screen

Richard Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman) is a masterpiece of the Romantic era, a gripping exploration love, death, purity, and damnation. In this production by Alex Ollé (La Fura dels Baus), the conflict between good and evil is a reflection of a tormented and imprisoned soul. The Dutchman, condemned to sail across an infinite ocean until the end of time, desires only to be released from his doomed vessel and return to a life on land. The sea, infinite and transcendent, becomes a powerful metaphor for the ultimate limits imposed on man. Based on an ancient legend and reinterpreted by poet Heinrich Heine, this libretto expresses the tragic nature of the romantic spirit. Conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado. Starring Samuel Youn, Kwangchul Youn, Ingela Brimberg, and Nikolai Schukoff. Sung in German. Three Acts with no intermission.

Dec-12-19 07:30 PM Revelry: The Gothic Archies Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre


This event is also part of From 69 to 50: A Stephin Merritt/Magnetic Fields Residency

A bubblegum goth night of music filled with upbeat sounds drenched in despair. Featuring Stephin Merritt with novelist/musician Daniel Handler (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket).

With opening artist Brian Dewan.

The Gothic Archies was formed in 1997, releasing their EP The New Despair. What makes this band, headed by Stephin Merritt, different from The Magnetic Fields, is that any glimmer of hope is absolutely extinguished. The Gothic Archies have released two records, The New Despair in 1997 on Merge Records, and The Tragic Treasury: Music for A Series of Unfortunate Events, in 2006, on Nonesuch Records. The Tragic Treasury is a compilation of songs originally written for the audiobooks of each of the 13 volumes of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events books. On The Tragic Treasury, these 13 songs are compiled, plus a 14th theme song, “We are the Gothic Archies.” In 2002, the band composed original music for the audio book version of Neil Gaiman's Coraline.
