Ballet at Kino


We are pleased to present a season of delightfully popular ballets from the Royal Opera House, screening live by satellite from Covent Garden.



ROH Live Ballet: The Nutcracker (2017)

Encore screening at Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Saturday 23rd December at 2.15pm, Wednesday 27th December at 5.30pm and Saturday 30th December at 3.15pm.

Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognisable of all ballet scores. Loosely based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the ballet opens with a lively Christmas party, its Victorian setting captured in opulent detail by Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs. Wright’s choreography ingeniously incorporates surviving fragments of the ballet’s original material, including the sublime pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince. But in emphasising the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, the production also gains a touching subtext of first love.

Conductor and cast to be confirmed.
