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 Tchaikvosky’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 select cinemas nationwide.
Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet. The twinned role of the pure White Swan and the scheming, duplicitous Black Swan, performed by Principal Dancer Zenaida Yanowsky, tests the full range of a ballerina’s powers. Other highlights include American Nehemiah Kish dancing the role of Prince Siegfried as well as the charming Dance of the Little Swans performed by a moonlit lake and sweeping ballroom waltzes in the splendor of the royal palace.
