or The Stone Guest
A programme celebrating the 200th anniversary of Gluck's death. An authentic re-creation of an 18th-century ballet masterpiece danced on the stage of the beautiful Court Theatre of Drottningholm in Sweden. Choreography by REGINA BECK-FRIIS
Music by Christoph Willibald Gluck
with artists of the Royal Swedish Ballet Orchestra of the Royal Swedish Opera House conducted by Thomas Schuback
This is a balletic version of the dramatic story of the seducer who is carried off to hell by the furies.
First performed in Vienna in 1761, it was a turning point in the history of dance: the first 'ballet d'action' - a ballet with a strong story line.
In its close fusion with the dramatic action, Gluck's music was as revolutionary as the dance: 'an astonishing piece', writes MARTIN COOPER , 'comparable only with Mozart, as great as Mozart in its greatest moments and never unworthy of comparison with him.'

Fifty years ago Professor
John Morrison dreamed of rediscovering the secrets of the Greek Trireme. The design of this legendary warship - powered by 170 oarsmen and with a deadly battering ram - had long been forgotten. But the triremes had once given the Greeks supremacy in the eastern Mediterranean and allowed their culture to flourish.
This year, after a lifetime of detective work among the art and literature of the ancient world, this gentle Cambridge scholar saw his dream come true. A replica, based on his findings, was built - and a trireme put to sea in the Aegean again for the first time in 2,000 years.

Derek Malcolm presents two films about male obsession
That Obscure Object of Desire
(Cet obscur objet du desir) starring
Carole Bouquet Angela Molina
A middle-aged Frenchman leans out of a train to empty a bucket of water over a girl on the platform. Then finding himself the object of curiosity, he explains to his fellow travellers the story of his unrequited passion for Conchita.
In Luis Bunuel 's last film the desirable Conchita - played by two actresses alternately firing and quenching the ardour of the hapless
Mathieu - exercises a form of sexual terrorism. Her victim is so mesmerised that he is unaware of the actual acts of terrorism that follow him.
Screenplay by LUIS BUÑUEL and JEAN-CLAUDE CARRIERE
Based on the novel by PIERRE LOUYS
Produced by SERGE SILBERMAN
Directed by LUIS BUNUEL

Man of Flowers starring Norman Kaye Alyson Best
Charles, a wealthy, reclusive collector of art and lover of rare flowers, remains lost in his childhood when he was adored by his mother.
Attempting to come to terms with the real world, he undergoes analysis and pays an artist's model to strip for him. But the complexity of the human condition and the ugliness of modern art continue to baffle him.
Paul Cox 's film, by turns profound, comic and erotic, was hailed as one of the finest Australian films of the 80s.
