ROH Encore Ballet: Don Quixote [2019] (165 minutes)

Monday March 4 at 7:15pm
Another chance to see Carlos Acosta’s vibrant production of this dazzling ballet. Love and friendship triumph in Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight who has inspired countless artistic interpretations as Don Quixote tries to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Maiden, plus satellite q&a with Tracy Edwards (150 mins)

Thursday March 7 at 6pm
Premiere screening of the incredible, against-all-odds story of sailor Tracy Edwards followed by a satellite Q&A with Tracy Edwards and the crew. Maiden is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989. Tracy’s dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing she and her crew would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that in sailing, women are the equal of men.
