Ballet at Kino



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

ROH Live Ballet: Within the Golden Hour / New Cherkaoui / Flight Pattern

Screening live by satellite from the Royal Opera House to Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Thursday 16th May at 7.15pm.

The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

The cast includes Beatriz Stix-Brunell, Lauren Cuthbertson, Sarah Lamb, Vadim Muntagirov, Ryoichi Hirano and Steven McRae.


ROH Live Ballet: Romeo And Juliet (2019)

Screening live by satellite from the Royal Opera House to Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Tuesday 11th June at 7.15pm. Encore screening on Monday 1st July at 7.15pm.

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

Starring Yasmine Naghdi as Juliet and Matthew Bourne as Romeo.



Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake

Screening at Kino Hawkhurst and Rye on Tuesday 21st May and Thursday 20th June at 8.15pm

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake comes to cinemas with a fresh look for the 21st century. This thrilling, audacious and witty production is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Retaining the iconic elements of the original staging loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) have created a ‘spellbinding’ re-imagining of this classic New Adventures production. Filmed live at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake stars Will Bozier as The Swan/The Stranger, Liam Mower as The Prince and Nicole Kabera as The Queen.
