    Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Ballet production of “Jewels” on Wednesday, May 24 at 6:00 p.m.

    George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendor of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in ‘Diamonds’.

    “Jewels” is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.

    This screening runs about 2 hours 30 minutes including two intermissions plus a 15-minute introduction. Beer, wine, and popcorn will be available for purchase.

    General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) will be available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

    Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Ballet production of “The Dream / Symphonic Variations /Margruerite and Armand” on Wednesday, June 28 at 6:00 p.m. This event is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.

    This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton’s first work after World War II, and one of the Company’s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi’s opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.

    General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

    Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Shakespeare Company production of “Titus Andronicus” on Wednesday, September 13 at 6:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in Stratford-Upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.

    The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play.

    Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.

    Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

    Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing “The Two Noble Kinsmen” (2016).

    General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Popcorn, beer, and wine will be available for purchase.
