Refugee Night - Afghanistan

We were scratching our heads wondering what we could do, as cinema owners, to try and help the plight of so many refugees seeking safety here in the UK. We don't see many in rural Derbyshire but we wanted to make that those who are here know they're welcome at The Northern Light Cinema. So, once a month, we'll be giving over the cinema to refugee groups to get together, enjoy a film together in their own language, to share their culture, food and friendship. Join us for a wonderful night of Afghani cinema.

The Dream / Symphonic Variations/ Marguerite and Armand

LIVE BALLET: Recorded Live at the Royal Opera House. This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet.

The Dream is Ashton’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton’s first work after World War II, and one of the Company’s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of Verdi’s opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.
