Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Live Cinema screening of The Royal Ballet’s current production of Romeo and Juliet, on Wednesday, March 9 at 6:00 p.m.
★★★★★ “…feels fresh and full of new detail…”
★★★★★ “…a sexy, stirring, nail-biter of an evening…”
Romeo and Juliet has become a great modern ballet classic since its creation by Royal Ballet Director Kenneth MacMillan and its premiere at The Royal Opera House in 1965. Shakespeare’s doomed lovers attempt to find their way through the color and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and the Capulets.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 2 hours, 45 minutes, including an on-screen introduction and one intermission. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. If you want to purchase 4 or more titles in the Live Cinema series together and save 10%, please call the box office at 509-529-6500 (offer not available online).
Please review our current health and safety precautions, including required mask use. Ticket holders will receive an email during the week before the show with any updates.
The Live Cinema Series is supported by Shakespeare Walla Walla, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that aims to make Shakespeare and theater approachable and entertaining to students in eastern Washington and Oregon.
