Although The Royal Opera and Royal Ballet wind down over the summer months, you can still enjoy our productions throughout July and August at your local cinema.

Cinema screenings during the Summer Season include Frederick Ashton’s colourful La Fille mal gardée, danced by Steven McRae and Roberta Marquez. It's great fun, and is hugely popular with families. Read audience reactions to the live cinema screening of La Fille mal gardée.

Another forthcoming dance treat is The Royal Ballet Dances Frederick Ashton, a diverse programme that includes La Valse, Monotones I and II, Méditation from Thaïs, Voices of Spring and Marguerite and Armand, one of Ashton’s most passionate creations.

It is the first time that Marguerite and Armand, danced on this occasion by Former Royal Ballet Principals Tamara Rojo and Sergei Polunin, has been seen on the big screen.

The Royal Opera productions to be broadcast are both works by Verdi: David McVicar’s dark and brooding production of Rigoletto, featuring acclaimed performances by Dimitri Platanias, Vittorio Grigolo and Ekaterina Siurina; and Phyllida Lloyd’s production of Macbeth, starring Simon Keenlyside in the title role and Liudmyla Monastryrska as Lady Macbeth. Read audience reactions to the live cinema screening of Rigoletto.

    The ROH Magazine (October) shows a big screen event for Traviata on May 20 2014. Is this the same as cinema screenings? If so, why can't I find it in the Summer cinema screenings page on your website?

      Hi Richard,

      Big Screen events are distinct from our Cinema offering (they're shown for free in parks and squares around the UK). We'll have more details in due course.
