February 6, 2020
WALLA WALLA-The Gesa Power House 2020 Live Cinema Series will continue with a screening of The Royal Ballet's current production of The Sleeping Beauty on Wednesday, February 26 at 6 p.m. This production was filmed live at The Royal Opera House in London and is rebroadcast to select theatres.
The Sleeping Beauty is a classic of Russian ballet, and is set in an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magical spells, it established The Royal Ballet both in its new home after World War II and as a world-class company. Sixty years later, in 2006, the original staging was revived, returning Oliver Messel's designs and glittering costumes to the stage. Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of three hours, including two intermissions. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
