Ncm Fathom Events, Mr. Wolf, Arts Alliance Media and the Royal Opera House invite you to journey to an enchanted world of princesses, fairy godmothers and magic spells with the captivating Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty as it comes to the big screen in a special one-night event on Thursday, March 20 at 7:00pm (local time) to select cinemas nationwide.

Don’t miss Marius Petipa’s enchanting ballet as a wicked fairy places a fatal curse on the baby Princess Aurora, which the good Lilac Fairy softens to a sleep of 100 years and only a prince’s kiss can break the spell.

Like Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty is instantly recognizable to those unfamiliar with ballet. The princess will be played by American Sarah Lamb who danced in The Royal Ballet’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in November of 2013.

Marius Petipa’s classic 19th-century choreography is combined with newly created sections by Frederick Ashton, »

Fathom Events – Win A Pair of Tickets To See Swan Lake In St. Louis

13 February 2014 7:37 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

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.

Anthony Dowell’s romantic interpretation returns the ballet to its 1895 origins by using the choreography of Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa. »
