  • Royal Opera House: Don Quixote 
    Teeming with wit and an abundance of bravura choreography, this energetic 19th-century ballet is enlivened by Ludwig Minkus’ spirited score and is a wonderful showcase for the virtuosity of The Royal Ballet's Principal dancers. Created for The Royal Ballet a decade ago, Carlos Acosta’s exuberant production brings the sunshine and charm of Spain to the stage with Tim Hatley’s characterful designs.

  • Macmillan MANON
    Kenneth MacMillan’s passionate ballet tells the story of Manon, who is torn between her desire for a life of splendour and riches and her devotion to her true love Des Grieux. This adaptation of Abbé Prévost’s novel embodies Kenneth MacMillan at his best, his acute insight into human psychology and his mastery of narrative choreography finding full expression in the impassioned duets of the central couple. 
    29 February – 10 March 2024
    Scope Cinemas Multiplex – CCC
    Sung in Italian with English subtitles. For all the beauty and romance of the music, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly remains a deeply moving – and troubling – story, fatally bound up with the destructive forces of imperialism. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s poignant, painterly production stars Asmik Grigorian as Cio- Cio-San with Joshua Guerrero as Pinkerton. 
    17th April – 5th May 2024 
    Scope Cinemas Multiplex – CCC
  • Royal Opera House: Black Swan 
    Tchaikovsky’s sensational score combines with the evocative imagination of choreographer Liam Scarlett and designer John Macfarlane to heighten the dramatic pathos of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’s quintessential ballet classic. Swan Lake remains to this day one of the best-loved works in the classical ballet canon.
