Special events at Rye Kino to look forward to include:

Boris Godunov  LIVE: Monday March 21 at 7:15pm  Richard Jones and Antonio Pappano renew their creative collaboration with this new production of Musorgsky’s historical masterpiece, here seen in its compact 1869 first version in seven scenes. The composer’s vision of Pushkin’s play about Tsar Boris Godunov – who reigned over Russia between 1598 and 1605 – sees Bryn Terfel’s assumption of the title role – one of the most complex characters in opera – while John Graham-Hall appears as the crafty Prince Shuisky and John Tomlinson as the vagabond monk Varlaam.

The Railway Children: Easter Bank Holiday Monday March 28 at 4pm  Filmed at the National Railway Museum in Yorkshire, this is York Theatre Royal’s Olivier award-winning production of E. Nesbit’s classic family drama featuring the original locomotive from the much-loved 1970 film. Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis are three children whose lives change dramatically when their father is mysteriously taken away. They move from London to a cottage in rural Yorkshire with their mother, where they befriend the local railway porter, Perks, and embark on a magical journey of discovery, friendship and adventure. But the mystery remains – where is Father, and is he ever coming back? – Booking at Rye Kino from 11am Friday February 26  Running time approximately 125 minutes including a 15 minute interval.

Giselle  LIVE BALLET: Wednesday April 6 at 7:15pm  Giselle is the quintessential Romantic classic, a love affair that begins in the real world and continues beyond the grave. The ballet’s title role also offers one of the great challenges of the ballet repertoire, as Giselle transforms from an innocent peasant girl, duped into love, to a forgiving spirit who saves her lover from death. For the ballerina this is a role of two contrasting halves: in Act I she must appear naïve and artless, her dancing alive with an earthy enthusiasm; in Act II she transforms into light and air, her dancing so ethereal as to seem weightless. In Peter Wright’s production, the dual aspect of the ballet is perfectly achieved: the first act dramatized in rich, naturalistic detail and the second with a spectral, moonlit beauty. Starring Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov. Composed by Adolphe Adam, revised by Joseph Horovitz and choreographed by Marius Petipa after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot

Classic world food and film nights in the Silver Room at Kino Rye;  Starts on Thursday 7 April with paella at 7pm followed by Spanish classic thriller The Orphanage at 7:30pm.  Tickets £10 which includes a light supper prepared by our kitchen and a regular drink from the bar. Tickets on sale online, by phone and in person on Monday 21st March at 2.

Lucia di Lammermoor  LIVE OPERA: Monday April 25 at 7:15pm  Lucia di Lammermoor tells the story of an ongoing feud between two families in 17th-century Scotland that has terrible consequences for two young lovers. It contains what is undoubtedly one of opera’s most poignant and gripping mad scenes, and is regarded as one of Donizetti’s finest works. The opera has not been seen at the Royal Opera House in more than a decade, so this new production by Katie Mitchell will be a particularly important and exciting event. Conducted by Daniel Oren and starring Diana Damrau and Charles Castronovo.

Please note that Kino member free tickets cannot be used for Live, NT, RSC, opera, ballet or special events
