    February - The Club

    In a secluded house in a seaside town live four unrelated men and the woman who tends to their needs. All former priests, they have been sent to this exile, devoid of all temptation, to purge the sins of their pasts. Their fragile stability is disrupted by the arrival of an emissary from the Vatican who seeks to understand the effects of their isolation. The Club is acclaimed director Pablo Larraín’s taut, blackly comic commentary on individual responsibility, organized religion and the combustible combination of the two. “The tart, smart and consistently surprising blend of ultra-serious material and darkly comic execution looks set to catapult director and co-writer Larraín – whose three previous films addressed the impact on Chile of dictator Augusto Pinochet - into the front rank of international arthouse filmmakers. Larraín's follow-up to the Oscar-nominated NO is a fascinating black comedy.” - Neil Young, Indiewire

    February - Giuseppe Verdi's I Due Foscari

    Jacopo, the son of the Doge Francesco Foscari, has been accused of murder and banished from Venice. Homesick, he writes to the Duke of Milan and asks him to intercede with the City Council. The letter is intercepted, and Jacopo is brought back to Venice for further investigation. I due Foscari was Verdi’s sixth opera and is based on Lord Byron’s play The Two Foscari. Rich in intrigue, the plot tells of the final days of the famous Venetian doge, Francesco Foscari, and his illegal overthrow in 1457. The opera was first performed at the Teatro Argentina in Rome in November 1844. Leo Nucci is a renowned Italian operatic baritone, who has enjoyed a very successful career, particularly in the repertoire of Giuseppe Verdi. He has performed the role of Rigoletto more than 400 times.
