NT Live: Life of Pi

Tue 7 March at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Puppetry, magic and storytelling combine in a unique, Olivier Award-winning stage adaptation of the best-selling novel.

After a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean, a 16-year-old boy named Pi is stranded on a lifeboat with four other survivors – a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan and a Royal Bengal tiger. Time is against them, nature is harsh, who will survive?

Live performance on screen brings the best of live performances around the world to our screen at BMEC. Captured live with a live audience in high definition and multiple camera angles, live performances on screen are quality productions not to be missed. No airfares, no hotels, no jetlag – just an incredible line up of performers, creators, playwrights, composers and musicians. From London we present the National Theatre and from New York, the Metropolitan Orchestra (affectionately known as The Met). And very affordable ticket prices – even cheaper for Members. Or organise a group of 10 or more and get an even bigger discount!

This program of events will be announced as our distributor, Sharmill Films, confirms the titles. Read on for more information about The Hours, The Crucible, Life of Pi, Othello, Best of Enemies, Good and Die Zaubeflote (The Magic Flute).
