Dame Monica Mason Applauds Ballet on the Big Screen
Hear from The Royal Ballet’s Artistic Director
Beautiful physiques, glamorous décor, and a chance to see your favourite dancers in the flesh – these are but a few of live theatre’s many rewards. Securing a good seat, however, can prove both a challenging and expensive task. Thanks to the recent launch of Palace Theatrical’s World Opera & Ballet Cinema Season in HD, ballet-lovers will now have the opportunity to see world-class productions in High Definition and 5.1 Surround Sound at their local cinema.
According to the Royal Ballet’s Artistic Director Dame Monica Mason, “The beauty of the cinema screenings is that people curious about dance who would perhaps think twice about buying a theatre ticket can go to their local cinema for much less. Those who find it difficult to get to their nearest dance theatre will have these productions brought right to them.” Dame Monica has reason to be excited about the cinema screenings, for among the productions featured in Palace Theatrical’s line-up are the Royal Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty featuring Alina Cojocaru and Romeo and Juliet, choreographed by the late Kenneth MacMillan.
