Bringing theatre to the silver screen

SHAKESPEARE’S Globe On Screen returns for its fifth fantastic year of sell-out performances and captivat- ing theatre from the London home of Shakespeare. A thrilling combination

of brilliant coup-de-théâtre and vivid characters, The Globe’s production of The Duchess of Malfi is the first ever theatrical production to be filmed entirely by candle- light. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole, with designs by Jonathan Fensom and mu- sic by Claire van Kampen, this truly unique produc- tion was created especially for the intimate atmosphere of the Globe’s new indoor space, with 250 candles used for each performance. De- spite technical challenges presented by the lighting, the film beautifully captures the flickering candlelight and is a testament to both the excep- tional quality of Dromgoole’s production and to the won- derful performances. Mark Foster, CEO of Arts Alliance, said “We’re thrilled to be bringing Globe On Screen back to cinemas with such an exceptional line-up for 2015.

The Duchess of Malfi on film is an incredible achievement and a stunning opening to the new season. These remark- able films will be a delight for cinema audiences around the world.” The widowed Duchess of Malfi longs to marry her lover, the steward Antonio. But her rancorous brothers, Ferdinand and the Cardinal, are implacably opposed to the match. When their spy, Bos- ola, discovers that the Duch- ess has secretly married and carries Antonio’s child, they exact a terrible and horrific revenge. The Duchess of Malfi

proved a truly sensational curtain-raiser for the very first season in the Sam Wa- namaker Playhouse and stars Gemma Arterton as the Duchess, with Sean Gilder as Bosola, David Dawson as Fer- dinand, James Garnon as the Cardinal, Denise Gough as Julia and Alex Waldmann as Antonio. The Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen season also includes four shows from the Globe’s Summer 2014 ‘Arms and the
