The Live Cinema series continues on May 9 at 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 20 at 2 p.m. with “Bernstein Centenary” by The Royal Ballet. A portion of the proceeds ($1/ticket) will benefit the Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival.
Three Royal Ballet choreographers honor the creative genius of Leonard Bernstein as part of the special worldwide centennial celebration of works created in response to his music. This program includes two world premieres by Wayne McGregor and Christopher Wheeldon, as well as the first revival of Liam Scarlett’s The Age of Anxiety set to Bernstein’s Symphony No 2.
Continuing his distinctive creative collaborations beyond the world of dance, Wayne McGregor’s new ballet incorporates designs by artist Edmund de Waal, and is set to Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms. Christopher Wheeldon collaborates with award-winning fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu to create the costumes for his piece.
This performance is filmed live in London and rebroadcast to select theaters.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students/Youth) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
