Catch the Nutcracker in Coquitlam

Royal Ballet Nutcracker Coquitlam Cineplex

There’s a new trend in the world of performing arts. More and more often, satellite technology is being used to bring performing arts to the big screen in communities of all sizes. For those of us in the Tri-Cities, this is a chance to see some of the world’s best dance and theatre in a unique setting, without having to jet off to London or New York. We don’t even have to drive to Vancouver, in fact, as many events are held at SilverCity Coquitlam.

This holiday season you can head to the local movie theatre to catch a screening of the Nutcracker Ballet, as performed by London’s Royal Ballet. Screenings are taking place on December 12, 2013 at 7:00pm and December 22, 2013 at 12:55pm.

Visions of sugar plum fairies and tin soldiers will soon be dancing in the heads of many dance lovers as the UK’s premier ballet, in collaboration with Arts Alliance Media, broadcasts its world-renowned production of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet from the Royal Opera House stage to cinemas across the country. Tickets are on sale now – you can get yours at the theatre’s box office, or online at

“The development of the technology to do this has been fantastic and means that people wherever they live can enjoy ballet from the Royal Opera House in London. It has been great to see the interest and demand for ballet on the big screen,” says Kevin O’Hare, Director, The Royal Ballet. Audiences will be transported from their cinema seats to the front row of the famed Royal Opera House where they will be immersed in a quintessential British holiday experience live from the Covent Garden Stage.

Perhaps the very best part? You can enjoy this ballet while eating popcorn.

If the Nutcracker isn’t your speed, there are a number of other upcoming ballets this season. See Giselle on January 27, 2014, Sleeping Beauty on March 19 and April 13, 2014, and The Winter’s Tale on April 28, 2014.
