SEED: The Untold Story

Film
Gesa Power House Theatre presents the Walla Walla premiere of the award-winning documentary “SEED: The Untold Story” on Wednesday, March 29, at 7:00 p.m. The film’s co-director and co-producer Jon Betz, a Walla Walla native, will participate in a talkback session following the screening. Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. “SEED: The Untold Story” follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. The film features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel. General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students, including ticket fees) are available online (www.phtww.com) or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500 or at the door.

Live Cinema: "The Sleeping Beauty" - Royal Ballet

Classical Dance, film
Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Ballet production of "The Sleeping Beauty" on Wednesday, April 12 at 6:00 p.m. Celebrate 70 years of The Royal Ballet’s landmark production and enter an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magical spells. A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet's The Sleeping Beauty combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers. First choreographed to Tchaikovsky's great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, The Sleeping Beauty has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The Royal Ballet's landmark staging was revived for the Company's 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006. The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colorful characters in this famous fairy tale make this Sleeping Beauty a spectacle like no other. This screening runs about 3 hours including two intermissions plus a 15-minute introduction. General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) will be available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Live Cinema: "Madama Butterfly" - Royal Opera

Opera, Film
Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Opera production of "Madama Butterfly" on Wednesday, April 26 at 6:00 p.m. Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice. This screening runs about 2 hours 45 minutes including one intermission, 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. Note: This opera is sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Live Cinema: "Jewels" - Royal Ballet

Classical Dance, Film
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) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Live Cinema: "The Dream" - Royal Ballet

Classical Dance, film
Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Ballet production of "The Dream / Symphonic Variations /Marguerite 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 program 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.

Live Cinema: "Titus Andronicus" - Royal Shakespeare Company

Shakespeare, Film
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.
