NCM Fathom Events, Arts Alliance Media and the Royal Opera House invite you to experience a series of classic tales told through the enchantment of ballet in a series of special one night cinema events.
The season begins with the endearing tale of Don Quixote on October 16 and continues with the wonderful adventures of Alice and the White Rabbit in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland on November 19. The series wraps up in December with the magical holiday classic Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker on December 17. This not-to-be-missed ballet series on the big screen also includes behind-the-scenes access and exclusive never-before-seen interviews.
