Live Cinema Isle of Man – theatrical screening from the Royal Ballet.

Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th-Century classic ballet brings an exotic world of temple dancers and noble warriors to life.

Marius Petipa’s 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 prince’s 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 Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.

Approximate Running Time: 3 hours 5 minutes, including two intervals
