The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with an encore screening of The Royal Ballet's "The Nutcracker" on Wednesday, December 18 at 6:00 p.m. This production was filmed live in 2016 at The Royal Opera House in London.
The Royal Ballet's glorious production of "The Nutcracker," created by Peter Wright in 1984, is the production par excellence of an all-time ballet favorite. It is Christmas Eve and Herr Drosselmeyer the magician sweeps young Clara away on a fantasy adventure in which time is suspended, the family living-room becomes a great battlefield, and a magical journey takes them through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets. Tchaikovsky's glittering score, the gorgeous festive stage designs, and The Royal Ballet's captivating dancing including an exquisite pas de deux between the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince, make this a quintessential Christmas experience.
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. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 2 hours 15 minutes. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
