Pet Shop Boys - global poverty - anti-war folk songs - Michael Moore latest - Russian art
Barbican, 11 January
Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 epic film of Russia's failed 1905 revolution is set to a new score by the Pet Shop Boys, performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra. It was first performed in 2004, when the film was shown in Trafalgar Square to an audience of thousands.
Many scenes from the film will already be familiar, even to those who have never seen it before, as it was a true watershed in cinema. The new score has divided critics, but the power of the imagery has lost little over the past 83 years.
