losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle
(Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s
England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor
with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the
young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant
Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical
island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses
old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.
The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice
(Dunkirk’s Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal
friends, including an anxious gorilla (Oscar® winner Rami Malek),
an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Oscar® winner Octavia
Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sick’s
Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a

A powerful and thought-provoking true story, JUST MERCY
follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making
battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick
of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly
condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the
support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first, and
most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in
1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old
girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the
fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a
motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a
labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed
racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the
odds—and the system—stacked against them.

the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as
the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her
fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March
sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her
own terms -- is both timeless and timely.

“I may well be
mature of age, but I’m still well preserved, and as far as
strength and sprightliness go, I’ve enough, and some to
spare.” – Don Pasquale, Don Pasquale, Act I, Scene III
“Foolish indeed is he who marries in old age.” Thus ends
Don Pasquale: with a wise dictum not lacking in irony that sums up the
disappointments of its hero, a rich bachelor keen to marry, who is
deceived by his nephew Ernesto and his young bride-to-be Norina. First
performed in Paris in 1843, at the turning point of several eras, Don
Pasquale, a composite and varied work, is the apotheosis of opera
buffa. Performed for the first time at the Paris Opera, the production
has been entrusted to Italian director, Damiano Michieletto, who
transports us directly to the sincerity and dramatic splendor at the
heart of a seemingly light‑hearted work.
Bass Michele Pertusi sings the title role, joined by tenor Lawrence
Brownlee, whose “instrument of great beauty and expression”
is “perfectly suited” to the great operas of Donizetti (NPR
Music). Nadine Sierra, winner of the 2017 Richard Tucker Award, sings
as the flirtatious and mischievous Norina.
