The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of a mixed program by The Royal Ballet on Wednesday, June 12 at 6:00 p.m. This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.
The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bossi and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses Górecki’s familiar music and a large dance ensemble for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, Medusa, a new work created by the acclaimed choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers.
This program has an approximate runtime of 3 hours 15 minutes, including two intermissions. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) will go on sale to the public on Monday, April 29, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. For group ticket sales, please call 509-876-1662.
