Rialto Theatre resuming the NT Live Programme and hosts an encore screening of Frankenstein
Resuming the National Theatre Live (NT Live) programme, Rialto Theatre hosts an encore screening of Frankenstein. NT Live is an exciting initiative of the Royal National Theatre in London to broadcast live performances of the best of British theatre to cinemas and movie theatres around the world.
NT Live launched in Cyprus by Rialto Theatre in September 2012 with Mark Haddon’s multi-award-winning novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Simon Stephens. Since then, the Rialto Theatre has continued the screening of selected performances until the beginning of 2020, when covid 19 led to forced termination of the programme.
Based on Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein was adapted for stage by Nick Dear and the performance has been praised by critics and audience alike as one of the most amazing spectacles of the century.
Monstrous, yet carrying the innocence of a child, the bewildered creature, Frankenstein, is exiled in an inhospitable universe by his creator who is driven by horror. This antisocial being is treated ruthlessly and becomes desperate and revengeful. He decides to track down his creator and to strike a scary deal. An exciting and subversive Gothic tale. Directed by Oscar award-winner, Danny Boyle with an amazing cast, among others, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller.
