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.
