Life Cinema Series: The Sleeping Beauty Ballet
The Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of The Royal Ballet’s current production of “The Sleeping Beauty” on Wednesday, February 26 at 6:00 p.m.
This production of “The Sleeping Beauty” has been delighting audiences in Covent Garden since 1946. A classic of Russian ballet, it established The Royal Ballet both in its new home after World War II and as a world-class company. Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score and Marius Petipa’s original choreography beautifully combine with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. This ballet is sure to cast its spell over anyone who sees it.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours. Drinks, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase and may be taken into the theater.
