ROH Live Ballet: Sleeping Beauty (2020)
Screening live by satellite to Kino Hawkhurst and Rye at 7.15pm on Thursday 16th January. Encore screening on Monday 27th January at 8pm
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.
Starring Lauren Cuthbertson as Princess Aurora and Federico Bonelli as Prince Florimund.
ROH Live Ballet: The Cellist And Dances At A Gathering
Screening at Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Tuesday 25th February at 7.15pm
Cathy Marston has previously been an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and is much in demand internationally. The inspiration for her first work for The Royal Ballet Main Stage is the momentous life and career of the cellist Jacqueline du Pré. Jerome Robbins’s elegant and elegiac classic forms the second part of the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.
Starring Lauren Cuthbertson, Matthew Ball and Calvin Richardson.
