Classical Ballets on the Big Screen
With instantly recognizable music and a timeless story of good versus evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of Romantic ballets.
NCM Fathom Events, Mr. Wolf, Arts Alliance Media and the Royal Opera House invite you to experience the timeless tale of good and evil with Tchaikvoskyâ??s Swan Lake when it comes to the big screen in a special one-night event on Thursday, February 20 at 7:00pm (local time) to cinemas nationwide. With instantly recognizable music and a timeless story of good versus evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of Romantic ballets. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman he is instantly captivatedâ?¦but will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under? Anthony Dowell's romantic interpretation returns the ballet to its 1895 origins by using the choreography of Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa. Dramatic costumes emphasize the contrast between human and spirit worlds, while glowing lanterns, shimmering fabrics and designs inspired by the work of Carl FabergÃ© create a magical setting.
