BALLET AT KINO
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.
ROH Live Ballet: Swan Lake
Screening live by satellite to Kino Rye and Hawkhurst at 7.15pm on Wednesday 1st April
Liam Scarlett’s glorious production returns for its first revival. While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet. The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece filled with iconic moments. Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside. An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.
Starring Lauren Cuthbertson as Odette/Odile and William Bracewell as Prince Siegfried.
