The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with an encore screening of Kenneth Branagh’s award-winning production of The Winter’s Tale on Wednesday, December 4 at 6:00 p.m. This production was filmed live in 2015 at The Garrick Theatre in London.
“This production is magical. A gift to the eye and heart”
King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences.
Shakespeare’s timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption was reimagined in a production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh. The production featured a remarkable group of actors, including Dame Judi Dench as Paulina and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), and Miranda Raison (Hermione). Dench won her eighth Olivier award for her performance in this production.
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. 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. For group ticket sales, please call 509-876-1662.
