Rave has joined with Emerging Pictures to present world-class cultural programming. This partnership will make available a wide range of cultural and alternative content previously unavailable. The best in European opera and ballet and special presentations will all be presented in crystal-clear high definition.
The “Opera in Cinema” fall series will bring landmark works such as director Zeffirelli’s production of Verdi’s “Aida” from La Scala di Milano; the renowned Salzburg Festival featuring Mozart’s “Così fan Tutte”; from l’Opera de Paris, director Dmitri Tcherniakov’s innovative production of Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” performed by the Bolshoi Opera; and as a special event, the movie “La Bohème” starring Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón.
In select theaters, two live events will be offered: Bizet’s “Carmen” at La Scala’s opening night on Dec. 7, and Verdi’s “Il Trovatore” from the Gran Teatre del Liceu on Dec. 22.
Also, performances from Russia’s legendary Mariinsky Ballet Company (formerly Kirov) will be part of the series featuring Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” and “The Nutcracker.”
