March 4-28, 2015

French actress Juliette Binoche leads a well-versed cast in this revival of the Greek tragedy. A headstrong noblewoman defies the orders of King Creon in order to bury her recently killed brother, who was deemed a traitor. Creon is enraged, and condemns her to be buried alive in a cave for her actions - and sets off a tragic chain of consequences by invoking the wrath of the Olympian gods. Ivo van Hove's brand-new production follows his popular West End transfer of Arthur Miller's A View From The Bridge.

Between Worlds

April 11-25, 2015

Join the English National Orchestra for the world premiere of the highly anticipated Between Worlds, showing at the Barbican from 11 - 25 April 2015. Between Worlds is the first ever opera of composer Tansy Davies, a rising star in the contemporary classical music world. Combining modern soundscapes with an avant-garde flair, Davies' music is always straddling the old world and the new.

To Kill A Mockingbird

June 24-July 25, 2015

Robert Sean Leonard once again reprises his role as heroic lawyer Atticus Finch, as the phenomenally successful Open Air Theatre production transfers to the Barbican following two sell-out seasons in Regents Park. This play is adapted from Harper Lee's seminal 20th century novel about the corruption of innocence and courage in the face of diversity.
