The  Scottish Ballet has a new film out this December. Free online (donation requested)

 

This Christmas, Scottish Ballet will bring the magic of the theatre right into your home. 

In a deserted city, a young boy stumbles into a theatre. He wanders through the auditorium, where rows of velvet chairs, draping curtains and chandeliers seem to lie in lonely wait for audiences to return. The theatre may be empty, but the show will go on... 

Starring characters from our most popular festive ballets, the worlds of the Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy collide when the theatre bursts into life. In this spectacular, feature-length film, you’ll be treated to an extraordinary show filled with acrobats, snowflakes, clowns, princes and – of course – beautiful ballerinas.   

The Secret Theatre features the choreography of Scottish Ballet founder Peter Darrell and CEO/Artistic Director Christopher Hampson, co-directed for the screen by Jess & Morgs. With set and costumes designed by Lez Brotherston; music by Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky, recorded live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra; and performances from the full Scottish Ballet Company; this Christmas special will be an unforgettable adventure for all the family. 

The Secret Theatre will premiere on Monday 21 December at 6pm and be available online until Thursday 24 December. Tickets are FREE and must be booked in advance.

Sounds like an excellent - and original - idea.

 

In fact, such an excellent idea - and so far ahead of its scheduled date - that I'm going to move it into its own thread so it doesn't get lost in the lockdown suggestions thread.

I tried to book a free ticket and the system just didn't do anything.  I used the donate button to make a trivial donation and it worked!

I already had an account!  I am being understanding, given the current situation, but when I was prompted to check and update my details I just kept getting taken round in circles.  I didn't mind doing the donation though.

and I found Scottish Ballet membership to be really reasonable (I circled back and joined)
