    The Live Cinema Series continues with a screening of the current Royal Ballet production of Swan Lake on Wednesday, July 18 at 6:00 p.m. A portion of the proceeds ($1/ticket) will be donated to the Walla Walla Symphony.

    Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

    Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.

    Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably one of the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.

    This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens. Runtime: approximately 3 hours 25 minutes including an on-screen introduction and two intermissions.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. For group ticket sales, please call 509-876-1662.

    The Live Cinema Series continues with the current production of The Merry Wives of Windsor by The Royal Shakespeare Company on Wednesday, October 10 at 6:00 p.m. This performance is filmed live in Stratford-upon-Avon and rebroadcast to select theaters. A portion of each ticket sale will benefit Shakespeare Walla Walla. 

    Down on his luck in the suburbs, John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos. For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor…

    David Troughton returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company as John Falstaff, following his recent title role in Titus Andronicus.

    Runtime: TBA. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater. Outside food and beverages are not allowed.
