THIS OCT-DEC, THE WORLD’S LEADING SINGERS AND DANCERS ARE PERFORMING AT A CINEMA NEAR YOU!
"Living in the digital age is a blast, isn't it? Nowadays great operatic and ballet performances that would previously cost you $200 (not to mention a $2,000 plane ticket) have become regular fixtures at your local cinema. Palace Opera & Ballet are at the forefront of this truly democratic revolution."
Clive Paget, Limelight Magazine (Sep 2017)

Since 2009, Palace Opera & Ballet has proudly given Australian arts-lovers exclusive access to performances from Europe’s finest stages.

Our Oct-Dec 2020 season opens with the Australian Premiere screenings of the groundbreaking new ballet feature ROMEO & JULIET: BEYOND WORDS (PG), featuring Royal Ballet choreography and dancers.

Following this is an unmissable performance of Verdi’s REQUIEM MASS – given by La Scala to honour victims of COVID-19 - captured live from the Duomo di Milano in the presence of the Italian President Sergio Mattarella, Milan’s Mayor and Archbishop and representatives of the city’s essential services communities.

The season will also showcase a stunning MANON from Paris, and four Royal Opera House favourites which are returning to cinemas worldwide, including THE NUTCRACKER which screens in the lead up to Christmas. Captured live from multiple vantage points (including close-ups of the performers) and presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital sound, Palace Opera & Ballet is your chance to see the world’s finest from the best seat in the house.

We'll see you at the screenings.
