The Sedona International Film Festival presents Ballet in Cinema on Sunday, July 3 when it hosts the big screen premiere of “Swan Lake” – a new production from The Royal Ballet in London. There will be one show at 3:00 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
The Royal Ballet’s version of this classic love story mixes spectacle, mystery and passion.
This beloved fairytale represents the battle between good and evil, and the attempt of love to conquer all. The magic of the lakes, forests and palaces is brought to life with glittering designs by John Macfarlane and a sublime score by Tchaikovsky.
The Royal Ballet’s sumptuous production of “Swan Lake” returns to the Royal Opera House stage after its 2020 revival was interrupted by the pandemic’s closure of theatres. This classic of the repertory is testament to the late choreographer Liam Scarlett’s abiding love of classicism and innate musicality, which shine through this production.
The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences the best seat in the house, and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. Audiences are never far from a performance at the Royal Opera House.
“Swan Lake” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Sunday, July 3 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
