Matthew Bourne’s The Car Man
June 30th @ 7:30 PM in 19th St. Theatre

A sensational new dance event for cinemas from the internationally acclaimed choreographer Matthew Bourne and his Dance Company New Adventures, The Car Man is loosely based on Bizet’s popular opera (CARMEN) and has one of the most thrilling and instantly recognisable scores in classical music, brilliantly arranged by Terry Davies. The familiar 19th Century Spanish cigarette factory becomes a greasy garage-diner in 1960’s America where the dreams and passions of a small-town are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger. Fuelled by heat and desire, the inhabitants are driven into an unstoppable spiral of greed, lust, betrayal and revenge. Lez Brotherston’s epic design, Chris Davey’s evocative lighting and Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling take in a wealth of cinematic references, creating a powerful and uncompromising vision of small-town America.

Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty
July 14th @ 7:30 PM in 19th St. Theatre

Matthew Bourne’s smash-hit production, Sleeping Beauty, was filmed at the Bristol Hippodrome in 2013 following a sell-out UK tour. The story begins in 1890, the year of the ballet’s first performance, at the christening of the heroine Princess Aurora. It was the Fin-de-Siecle period when fairies, vampires and decadent opulence fed the gothic imagination. As Aurora grows into a young woman, we move forward in time to the more rigid, uptight Edwardian era; a mythical golden age of long summer afternoons, croquet on the lawn and new dance crazes. Years later, awakening from her century long slumber, Aurora finds herself in the modern day, a world more mysterious and wonderful than any fairy story! Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty is a Gothic Romance that will delight dance fans of all ages.

July 28th @ 7:30 PM in 19th St. Theatre

With its passionate choreography, spine-tingling swordsmanship and celebrated score by Sergei Prokofiev, this colourful and emotional re-telling of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet has packed houses around the world. Helgi Tomasson’s bravura interpretation of the Bard’s greatest tragedy “lifts Shakespeare’s complex and familiar language off the gilded pages and translates it into lucid classical choreography that is visceral, fresh, and ultimately sublime.” (Huffington Post) San Francisco Ballet’s production of Romeo & Juliet for Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance is made possible by Production Sponsor First Republic Bank. Original production of Helgi Tomasson’s Romeo & Juliet was made possible by the E. L. Wiegand Foundation.

Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia is a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet’s classic opera about a passionate gypsy.
