Picture House to screen even more opera, ballet and theatre in Uckfield

More opera, ballet and theatre performances from new locations around the world will be screened at The Picture House in Uckfield this autumn and winter.

Wide ranging Arts on Screen content won the cinema the award of Best Independent Cinema in Europe last year and the offering is being expanded yet again.

To begin, Stage Russia HD is bringing award-winning productions of Eugene Onegin and The Cherry Orchard from Moscow to audiences in Uckfield.

Eugene Onegin will be screened on Wednesday, October 19 and The Cherry Orchard on Wednesday, November 22.

Company founder Eddie Aronoff said: “We’re committed to showcasing theatrical works from Russia’s most renowned theatre companies, overseen and performed by their greatest artists.

“The staging of the productions we selected lend themselves beautifully to being captured on film. We’re very excited that world audiences can now experience classic and contemporary Russian culture for the price of a movie ticket.”

There will also be new live opera from Opera De Paris with classics including Macbeth (October 20), and the Snow Maiden (April 25).

And from Opera Italia, live from Milan and Turin, there will be Madame Butterfly (December 7), and Manon Lescaut (March 14).

Another new offering this season is The Salzburg Festival, a must for any Placido Domingo and Jonas Kaufmann fans.


Ballet is on the programme at The Picture House, Uckfield, this autumn/winter too. This is the Australian Ballet.
