Capital Celluloid - Day 59: Monday Feb 28, 2011

Diva (Beineix, 1981): English National Opera, London Coliseum, 6.30pm

I can still remember the first time I saw the trailer for this superb French film. Here it is. Hailed as the birth of the new New Wave of French cinema, this was a sensation when released in the early 1980s. What makes tonight so special is that Future Cinema, the people behind Secret Cinema, are staging this at the English National Opera.

Sorpano Elizabeth Llewellyn will deliver a live performance before the movie is shown with the organisers promising to bring a touch of Paris to St Martin's Lane. I have a ticket and cannot wait. There are a few left and you can get them via the Future Cinema Facebook page here.

Here are the details of how to book.
