Broadcast live from London’s Royal Opera House on Tuesday 17th March at 8:15pm is Swan Lake, one of the greatest of all Romantic ballets. Showing for one night only at the Eden Cinemas, Swan Lake tells the captivating story of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan, and a heart-rending tribute to the power of love. The production is a perfect synthesis of choreography and music. Although Tchaikovsky, the original composer, did not live to see his work become a success, his first ballet score is now synonymous with the ballet itself – inspiring generations of dancers and crossing over into popular culture.
In creating this production, Anthony Dowell aimed to return to an authentic version of the choreography created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Also, designs by Yolanda Sonnabend draw on the Russian Imperial Court of that period with an inspired blend of historical accuracy and gothic fantasy.
Eden Cinemas continue to enhance the experience of this spectacular ballet through dimmed theatre lighting and amplified sound. Also, with behind the scenes footage shown just before the start of the performance, audiences are made to feel as though they are watching the ballet from London’s Royal Opera House. Sure to be a magical performance, individuals pay just a fraction of that charged overseas for theatre tickets.
Tickets for Swan Lake are priced at €23 per adult and a mere €10 for children aged 16 and under. A complimentary glass of wine will also be offered, together with complimentary parking and a 25% discount at Waterbiscuit upon presentation of a ticket.
