Ballet at Kino


We are pleased to present another season of delightfully popular ballets from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.


ROH Live Ballet: La Bayadere

Screening live by satellite from the Royal Opera House to Kino Hawkhurst and Kino Rye on Tuesday 13th November at 7.15pm.

Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’ – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.

Choreographed by Natalia Makarova and starring Marianela Nuñez, Vadim Muntagirov and Natalia Osipova.


ROH Live Ballet: The Nutcracker

Screening live at Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Tuesday 3rd December at 7.15pm.

The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet – and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Their journey to the Land of Sweets brings with it some of the most familiar of all ballet moments, such as the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers. Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet keeps true to the spirit of this Russian ballet classic, with period details and dancing snowflakes. The many solo roles and ensembles put the world-class skills of the Company to the fore in this Christmas classic.

Conducted by Barry Wordsworth and starring Marianela Nunez, Vadim Muntagirov, Anna Rose O’Sullivan, Marcelino Sambe and Gary Avis.
