GIVEAWAY: WIN Royal Opera House Double Passes!




Hi guys! Today I have an exciting Giveaway, which you'll especially appreciate if you're into movies, opera, ballet and a bit of culture! Event & Village Cinemas and Trafalgar Releasing have announced a new cinema program that's screening exclusively in Australia: the Royal Opera House 2017/18 Live Cinema Season! It features filmed performances from London's famous Royal Opera House captured in beautiful detail. Six operas and four ballets will screen in Event and Village Cinemas across Australia, with the season ending in July 2018. I'm giving away two double passes that you can use to see any of the films in the program. Keep reading for how to enter!

The next few movies are Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and The Nutcracker, with Rigoletto (sounds like a type of pasta, is in fact a Verdi opera, lol) set to screen from February next year. Christopher Wheeldon's ballet, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland is inspired by the Lewis Carroll book, and features Alice getting swept off her feet by the Knave Of Hearts, on the run for stealing tarts, and lots of weird and wonderful creatures, including a tap-dancing Mad Hatter!

Wright's The Nutcracker, screening in December nationally, is a Royal Ballet in two acts. A young girl's enchanted present leads her on a wonderful Christmas adventure in this beautiful classical ballet, danced to Tchaikovsky's magnificent score. I can't wait to see this one as I've heard it's wonderful, yet have never actually witnessed it!

The two double passes on offer are generic and can be used for any of the screenings. Other upcoming movies include Tosca, Carmen, Macbeth, Manon and Swan Lake. For session details, please go to the Event Cinemas and Village Cinemas Royal Opera House web pages.

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland is set to screen on November 25, 26 and 29, with The Nutcracker screening on December 16, 17 and 20.

  4. Both Alice in Wonderland and Nutcracker look amazing! I might just have to go see them. I actually saw Nutcracker on ice in London and I’d love to see the ballet. It’s such an amazing score.

  12. I've never experienced an opera before but I'd love to see Rigoletto. I'd be happy seeing any of these! Alas there are none of these cinemas near me, but I'd love to win tickets for my rellies in Adelaide, particularly my niece and her partner who are having a baby in December(they are hard working teachers). They could do with a night out before then!

  17. Romeo and Juliet this is a ballet that is truly too beautiful to be talked about, but must be seen and heard to be fully understood and loved. The movement, the music, the colors, just beautiful.

    1. Don Giovanni the Opera tops my list - in addition to the romance and tragedy of most operas it includes a hefty dose of humour. Mozart moves beyond entertainment and asks some very profound questions - the opera is a debate in music - brilliant

  18. Swan Lake but I would like to see The Nutcracker some day.

  24. My wife and I had a season pass to the ballet a couple of years ago, and I really enjoyed all of them. Giselle was wonderful, and even the more modern 20:21 was great.

  27. Not the Nutcracker! I've not been to the ballet much but I've seen it a gazillion times. My niece was a dancer and went to a full time ballet school and she and her mum used to go and watch the Australian Ballet 3-4 times every time they came to Brisbane. My niece was also in a Youth Ballet in Brisbane.

    Sadly I can't enter as I live in regional Qld and we don't have an Event / Village cinema here in Hervey Bay... we have some local version I think but they often bring footage of operas and ballets to a theatre in nearby Maryborough which is great for people who can't get to larger centres to see them! #teamlovinlife

  28. Adored the "Alice" book in 'kiddyhood', loved the 'Alice' magical movies... so Yes please for the Alice Ballet tix. My favourite ballet to date is Coppélia - The Girl With The Enamel Eyes.... an amazing doll. It is a comic ballet I saw live and I love happy endings.
