CALLING ALL BALLET LOVERS
TWO OUTSTANDING FILM EVENTS NOT TO BE MISSED! 

 

While sipping a glass of champagne, allow yourself to be transported into the magical world of ballet at two spectacular international ballet film screenings.

 

Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM performed by the Paris Opéra Ballet

Sunday 7th May, 12.30pm

Shakespeare’s poetic world of elves and fairies is brought to life by exquisite dancing to George Balanchine’s enchanting choreography, Mendelssohn’s timeless musical score, and sets and costumes designed by fashion icon Christian Lacroix 

 

Ashton TRIPLE BILL performed by The Royal Ballet

Sunday 7th May, 12.30pm

 

Celebrating 70 years at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, this stunning mixed programme pays tribute to The Royal Ballet’s Founder Choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton and brings their commemorations to a close. 

‘The Dream’, Ashton’s one-act ballet adaptation of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite armed with a love potion plays havoc. Music by Mendelssohn, arranged by John Lanchbery. 

‘Symphonic Variations’, Ashton’s first work after WWII, is a seminal masterpiece celebrating the pure beauty of movement set to brooding music by Franck. 

‘Marguerite and Armand’, a passionate ballet created by Ashton for the celebrated partnership of Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev in 1963, is danced to Lizst’s tempestuous Piano Sonata.
