Coming Soon To A Theater Near You: Carlos Acosta

Finally, Covent Garden is expanding its popular big screen broadcasts to the U.S., and Royal Ballet fans will be able to get their fill of their favorite stars.

The series launches with a bang on October 16, when Carlos Acosta’s much-anticipated new Don Quixote is beamed onto movie screens around the country. It’s the first production staged for the Royal by the Cuban superstar, and he will dance Basil, long a signature role, opposite Royal principal Marianela Nuñez as Kitri. (Don’t miss Pointe’s exclusive interview with Acosta about the production in the upcoming October/November issue.) Future Royal broadcasts include Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (November 19) and The Nutcracker (December 17). For details, visit www.fathomevents.com.
