Libretto 2: Gaetano Donizetti
Don Pasquale: Bryn Terfel
Norina: Olga Peretyatko
Ernesto: Ioan Hotea

Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle-aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind – has long delighted and surprised audiences, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.

Co-production with the Opéra national de Paris and Teatro Massimo, Palermo

De la musique pour le cerveau (STF-STA)
The healing powers of music on the brain deserve to be recognized and above all heard. Tuning the Brain with Music allows us to discover cutting-edge research in musical neuroscience through the stories of people for whom music has succeeded where other therapies have not. The film alternates between neuroscientific research, music therapists in session and true stories retold by those who have been transformed by music.

Winner of the Golden Bear at Berlinale, the latest from Nadav Lapid (The Kindergarten Teacher) features a dynamic lead performance from newcomer Tom Mercier, whose feral intensity practically bursts out of the frame. Mercier plays Yoav, a disaffected young Israeli who flees Tel Aviv for Paris to start a new life. Desperate to erase his origins, Yoav sees becoming French as his only hope for salvation. Step one is to replace his language. From now on, he will not utter a single word of Hebrew and his dictionary becomes his constant companion. His work at the Israeli embassy is a burden, but studying for his naturalization test also has its pitfalls. And the young French couple he befriends has some rather strange ideas about how to help him. Based on writer-director Nadav Lapid's own experiences, Synonyms explores the challenges of putting down roots in a new place. Yoav's attempts to find himself awaken past demons and open up an existential abyss in this tragicomic puzzle that wisely knows how to keep its secrets.

La vie invisible d\'Euridice Gusmao (STF)
Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s. Eurídice and Guida have been raised in a conservative household. One night after a clandestine outing with her lover, Guida fails to return, leaving behind only a letter. With their destinies now at odds, the sisters do everything in their power to find each other. Adapting Martha Batalha’s eponymous novel with great sensitivity and impressive narrative force, Karim Aïnouz (Madame Satã) scooped the Un Certain Regard prize at this year’s Cannes. A wrenching epic about two women, elevated by stunning performances from its two leads, Carol Duarte and Julia Stockler, and borne by the power of an unbreakable bond.
