The Threepenny Opera

Open Run

Homegrown stage and film star Rory Kinnear is set to lead Kurt Weill and poet-playwright Bert Brecht's satirical opera, in itself a nod to the Beggar's Opera as part of the 2016 National Theatre season led by Rufus Norris. The double Olivier Award winner will star as anti-hero Macheath (or Mack The Knife) in this play with songs, set in the Victorian era of London.


Open Run

As part of Rufus Norris' inaugural season at the National, he has announced a programme of diversely cast plays, including this brand-new revival of Amadeus with colour-blind casting. Last seen on the NT stage in 1979 when it premiered, Amadeus explores the stormy relationship between aging court composer Antonio Salieri and genius young upstart Mozart. Salieri will be played by British-Tanzanian veteran actor Lucian Msamati.

Peter Pan

Opens November 3, 2016

As part of Rufus Norris' new programme as the incoming artistic director of the National Theatre, he has scheduled a daring take in casting some classic plays, as part of a drive to encourage diversity in theatre. In this new production first seen at the Bristol Old Vic, the duel role of Captain Hook (and Mrs Darling) will be played by Sophie Thompson in this holiday season transfer.

Antony and Cleopatra

Opens February 8, 2018

Film and stage royalty Ralph Fiennes returns to the play that made his name playing Claudio in 1988, this time in the lead role of Antony! Shakespeare's historical play depicting Ancient Egypt's first celebrity couple returns to the National Theatre 31 years later, as part of Rufus Norris' inaugural season of shows. Directed by Simon Godwin.
