Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Via Satellite from The Royal Opera HouseMarius Petipas fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit white act - The Kingdom of the Shades - is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the princes lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkuss music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling. 185 mins- 2 intervals
