The Royal Ballet’s critically-acclaimed production of Manon comes to Tideswell Cinema live from the Royal Opera House on Thur May 3 at 7.15pm, upstairs at the George Inn.
American principal dancer Sarah Lamb gives a passionate performance as tragic Manon, a beautiful but impoverished young woman torn between a life of luxury with a repulsive rich man or poverty with the man she loves. The Royal Ballet warns that Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful interpretation includes scenes of an adult nature, including sexual violence.

The following week we’re showing Shakespeare’s dark tragedy Macbeth, live from the National Theatre, on Thur May 10 at 7pm. Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff star as the ambitious but doomed Macbeths, directed by the National’s artistic director Rufus Norris. The actors play out their intense power struggles in grimy modern dress on a stark and brutal stage-set that looks like the aftermath of a catastrophic civil war.

In complete contrast, on Tue May 15 at 7pm, we have an award-winning modern ballet – Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella, with music by Prokofiev. Set in the Second World War, a chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot before being parted by the Blitz. This is a recorded broadcast followed by a live Q&A with choreographer Matthew Bourne himself, exclusive to cinemas.

And coming up early in June we have an Oscar Wilde treat – An Ideal Husband – examining the blackmail of an ambitious government minister with Wilde’s typical wit. Starring Edward Fox and his real-life son Freddie Fox with Frances Barber and Susan Hampshire, An Ideal Husband comes live from the Vaudeville Theatre, on Tue June5 at 7.15pm.

Manon and AnIdeal Husband are £15 (£12.50 concessions), Macbeth is £10 (£7.50 forunder-19s) and Cinderella is £12.50.
