Live screening of Mary Shelley’s classic in ballet

The Event Cinema at the Regal in Redruth is continuing its season of live screenings with a production beamed from The Royal Opera House this month.

Royal Ballet Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett has chosen Mary Shelley’s gothic classic Frankenstein as the basis for his first full-length narrative ballet for the Covent Garden Main Stage.

A story of betrayal, curiosity, life, death and, above all, love, it inspires Scarlett to explore the very depths of human nature and our need to find acceptance and a place in the world.

For this new work Scarlett has assembled a number of regular collaborators. American composer Lowell Liebermann, whose First Piano Concerto provides the music for Scarlett’s Viscera, composes a new score. John Macfarlane (Asphodel Meadows, Sweet Violets, The Age of Anxiety) creates the designs, while David Finn provides lighting design.

The event will be beamed live to The Regal Cinema on Wednesday May 18 at 7.15pm. Visit www.merlincinemas.co.uk for more information.
