Ballet in cinema: Grand pas de deux and more – see it first at Ster-Kinekor Nouveau Theatres
Giselle will screen from 14 April 2018 at Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau and followed by The Flames of Paris releasing 05 May 2018
Giselle is a romantic ballet in two acts. Prima ballerina, Svetlana Zakharova, personifies this ultimate ballerina role in the classical repertoire, alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht, in this chilling, yet luminous ballet that continues to captivate audiences for over 150 years at the Bolshoi.

Duration: 2 hours and 20 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes
The Flames of Paris: From 05 May 2018
The Flames of Paris is a full-length ballet in four acts based on songs of the French Revolution.

In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris in support of the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way…
Duration: 2 hours and 15 minutes, with an interval of 15 minutes
