Singing and Dancing Live on Your Cinema Screen from the ROH
Not to be outdone by cinema screenings of live theatre performances, Royal Opera House will be organising its own programme of a selection of live opera and ballet productions the 2013/14 season.

Starting this September Puccini's Turandot, featuring Lise Lindstrom and Marco Berti, will go out live to cinemas across the UK, followed by a balletic Don Quixote. If you're in a festive mood for Christmas, a traditional offering for the whole family will be Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker: Clara's magical encounters with the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Mouse King and her adventures in the Kingdom of Sweets.

Ballet lovers will be in for another treat with Sir Peter Wright's production of the Royal Ballet's Giselle in January, but opera buffs will get their turn again the following month with Kasper Holten's Don Giovanni. Mariusz Kwiecien will be cast in the role of the womanizing protagonist with Alex Esposito as Leporello.

The season culminates as it began, with another Puccini opera, this time Manon Lescaut, produced by Jonathan Kent, with musical direction by Antonio Pappano. The other productions featured during the season are the ballets Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty and an adaptation of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale as well as operatic performances of Les VÍpres Siciliennes and Parsifal.

If you adore opera and ballet, but your purse doesn't stretch wide enough to afford the tickets, watching live productions on screen at your local cinema could be your next best option.
