This time they will be doing Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty (and they just finished Giselle). This initiative is pretty unique in that for the price of a movie ticket, anyone can see The Royal Ballet perform some of the most classic ballets of all time.
The Royal Ballet’s version of Swan Lake features Anthony Dowell’s romantic interpretation which harkens back to its 1895 origins and uses the choreography of both Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa. It will be danced by French principal ballet dancer, Zenaida Yanowsky and American principal Nehemiah Kish on Thursday, February 20th.
The Sleeping Beauty comes to movie theaters on March 20th.
