Sunday 19 May 2019 - 16:00 to Sunday 16 June 2019 - 19:00

With 11 titles broadcast to more than 500 UK cinemas and to another 1,000 in 40 countries across the globe, the Royal Opera House’s Live Cinema Season 2018/19 showcases a wide variety of ballet and opera, including three new works, all relayed live from Covent Garden.

The 2018/19 Season will feature great classics from The Royal Ballet’s repertory and world-renowned opera stars including Michael Fabiano, Jonas Kaufmann, Anna Netrebko and Eva-Maria Westbroek.

Within The Golden Hour / New Cherkaoui / Flight Pattern 

On Sunday, 19 May, from 16.00, see the contemporary face of The Royal Ballet in works from three of today’s leading choreographers.

Christopher Wheeldon’s 'Within the Golden Hour' is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset.

Crystal Pite’s 'Flight Pattern', revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.

Between them, a new work by Sidi Lardi Cherakoui, 'New Cherkaoui', serves to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

Approximate running time: 3 hours 15 minutes, including two intervals.
