No mis-steps for Cork City Ballet

Wednesday, 5th September, 2018 4:31pm

As it pirouettes into another year, Cork City Ballet is returning to Cork Opera House for a special celebration of 25 years in existence.

Join Artistic Director Alan Foley at next week’s premiere of ‘Breaking Pointe’, a film showing hidden scenes and backstage content from one of Cork’s most celebrated organisations.

To be shown on Tuesday 11 September at 7pm in the Cork Opera House, the film shows spectacular footage of the dancers in the company and provides direct access to behind-the-scenes to see up close the rarely seen aspects of the daily life of a professional dancer.

Excerpts from favourite ballets such as ‘Swan Lake’, ‘Giselle’, ‘Le Corsaire’, ‘The Dying Swan’, ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ and ‘The Nutcracker’, which the company presents at the Cork Opera House in November, feature in this stunning documentary.

For fans of Cork City Ballet and any dance lovers, it will be a night not to be missed.

‘Breaking Pointe’ will be shown on Tuesday 11 September at 7pm in Cork Opera House. Tickets are €10 and are available from corkoperahouse.ie or by calling 021-4270022.
