Benjamin Britten: Peace and Conflict

Benjamin Britten: Peace and Conflict

Tony Britten & John Hurt


James Gilchrist, Iain Burnside, Raphael Wallfisch, Ronan Collett, Benyounes String Quartet

This drama documentary explores the pacifism nurtured at Gresham’s School that was such a powerful influence on composer Benjamin Britten’s life and work. Episodes from his schooling and early career, illustrated by performances of his music and unique observations from experts and friends, help us understand his growing pacifism.

The film features performances of Britten’s music by tenor James Gilchrist with pianist Iain Burnside, the Benyounes Quartet, cellist Raphael Wallfisch, baritone Gerard Collett and the Gresham School choir and brass group. The narration is spoken by legendary actor John Hurt and interviewees include Anita Lasker Wallfisch, composer Joseph Horovitz and Sue Phipps, Britten’s and Peter Pears’s agent for many years.

“Peace and Conflict is a beautiful and touching evocation of Britten's schooling at Gresham's and the values there inculcated, which remained with him for life. This is a moving and engrossing film, with terrific performances and tender appreciation of Britten's music.” Paul Kildea (Britten’s biographer).

Rating: Exempt

Sound Format: English, Stereo, 5.1 surround

Runtime: 105 mins

“Tony Britten's film amounts to far more than the sum of its parts, managing to avoid the potential pitfalls of such a mix throughout scrupulous research and faithfulness to its material. Truly revelatory.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013 *****

“Alex Lowther's young Britten seems a first-rate choice, both visually and atmospherically...The director's difficult work of making living fiction ouit of 'real' people is convincingly done. It always feels 'real' rather than just a parade of lookalike marionettes quoting texts...This is a fresh, unusual and genuine contribution to the Britten centenary.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2014

Hammarton:

Incidental music for Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew


Samantha Spiro (Kate), Simon Paisley Day (Petruchio), Sarah MacRae (Bianca), Pip Donaghy (Baptista Minola), Michael Bertenshaw, Pearce Quigley (Grumio), Joseph Timms (Lucentio), Helen Weir (Widow), Tom Anderson (Curtis), Jamie Beamish (Tranio), David Beames (Vincentio/Tailor), Patrick Driver (Pedant), Tom Godwin (Biondello), Rick Warden (Hortensio), Chris Keegan (Nathaniel/Servant)

Toby Frow (director)

The Taming of the Shrew tells the tale of the sharp-tongued Kate, who must marry before her younger sister, Bianca, is allowed to find a suitor. Undaunted by her waspish reputation, Petruccio attempts to woo the not-so-fair maiden, but is faced with a tirade of poisonous insults. Samantha Spiro stars as cantankerous Kate, capable of knocking a grown man down with her fist. With a stellar supporting cast, the production is a triumph, thanks to its ‘riotous mixture of verbal dexterity and slapstick’ (The Daily Telegraph).

Christpher Marlowe: Dr Faustus

Christpher Marlowe: Dr Faustus

Recorded live at Shakespeare’s Globe, August 2011


Charlotte Broom, Michael Camp, Richard Clews, Nigel Cooke, Jonathan Cullen, Arthur Darvill, Robert Goodale, Paul Hilton, William Mannering, Sarita Piotrowski, Pearce Quigley, Iris Roberts, Beatriz Romilly, Felix Scott, Jade Williams & Chinna Wodu

Director: Matthew Dunster

Music: Jules Maxwell

Doctor Faustus is Christopher Marlowe’s most renowned and controversial work. Famous for being the first dramatized version of the Faustus tale, the play depicts the sinister aftermath of Faustus’s decision to sell his soul to the Devil’s henchman in exchange for power and knowledge. In the first-ever staging of this menacing drama at the Globe Theatre, Matthew Dunster’s production features Paul Hilton as the arrogant, power-hungry Faustus and Arthur Darvill as the sardonic Mephistopheles, and includes several impressive magical stunts along the way.

Doctor Faustus is considered the greatest tragedy in English before Shakespeare. Marlowe places some of the greatest poetry ever written for the stage and a good deal of anarchic comedy at the service of this mythic tale illustrating mankind’s insatiable desire for knowledge and power.

This was the first production of Doctor Faustus at the Globe.

This production employs Renaissance costumes and staging.

Screened in cinemas worldwide through November 2012.

Mephistopheles is played by Arthur Darvill, best known for the role of Rory in Doctor Who.

William Shakespeare: All’s Well That Ends Well

William Shakespeare: All’s Well That Ends Well

Recorded live at Shakespeare’s Globe, August 2011


Michael Bertenshaw, Sam Cox, Sam Crane, Naomi Cranston, John Cummins, Janie Dee, Ben Deery, Mary Doherty, Sophie Duval, Will Featherstone, James Garnon, Peter Hamilton Dyer, Colin Hurley, Ellie Piercy, Laura Darrell, Nicholas Delvalle & Luke McConnell

Director: John Dove

Music: William Lyons

Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well centres on the tale of Helena’s quest to marry the man she loves, the rather unimpressed Bertram, who initially refuses her due to her lack of social standing. Aided by fellow conspirator Diana, Helena devises a fail-safe scheme to ensnare her man. The production, directed by John Dove, stars Sam Crane and Ellie Piercey as Bertram and Helena, and includes performances by James Garnon as troublemaker Parolles and Janie Dee as Bertram’s interfering mother, the Countess of Roussillon. With lavish staging and costume, the production is a triumph that, according to The Independent, ‘leaves the audience reeling with happiness by the end.’
