Tutu You – The Bolshoi Ballet beam into town

They’ve got the whole world in their sights, and the beautiful thing about satellites is that, they’re willing to share. Even with little ol’ Greystones.

Having launched in November 2017 with a live link-up of the National Theatre’s debut production of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies, and continued with the likes of A Woman Of No Importance and The Nutcracker, The Whale has been hooking up to that particular satellite of love over the past few years to bring the town a series of exclusive nights out at the theatre.

Well, two theatres, in fact, if you consider that you’re in this fine Greystones theatre, which, through the space-time continuum of that satellite hidden way up on the rooftop, can bring The Whale inside the belly of some of the world’s finest cultural venues!

Man, if Mrs Scuffil could only see us now.

Upcoming from the Bolshoi Ballet front, you can catch Aram Khachaturian’s Spartacus on Sunday, November 7th at 3pm, Fauré, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky celebrated in Jewels on Sunday, January 23rd at 3pm, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake on Sunday, March 13th at 3pm and Pugni’s The Pharaoh’s Daughter on Sunday, May 1st at 3pm.

Tickets for these satellite love-in link-ups are €20, or €17.50 with concessions. Worth noting too that The Whale does a mean cheese board, as well as good old-fashioned snacks, such as freshly-popped popcorn and sweeties.
