Kirtlington Film Club

Kirtlington Film Club would like to invite you to a screening of the ballet Giselle on Saturday 21st October 2017.  This is a recording of a performance by the Royal Ballet that was originally broadcast live to cinemas around the world from the Royal Opera House in April 2016. The music was written by Adolphe Adam, choreographed by Marius Petipa and premiered  in Paris in 1841.  Giselle is danced by Marianela Nuñez, Prince Albrecht by Vadim Muntagirov and the production is directed by Peter Wright. Giselle has been called  ‘One of the most enchanting ballets of all time’.

Programme notes will be available on the night and there will be an interval during which coffee, tea and ice creams will be available.

Films are shown in Kirtlington village hall (1 South Green, Kirtlington, Kidlington OX5 6HJ) and start at 7.30 pm.  We have a very large screen, which is clearly visible from all seats in the hall, with high quality projection and sound.  Tickets (buy at the door) are £5 for adults and £3 for those in full time education.    We anticipate that there will be a lot of interest in this production so please let us know, in advance, how many will be in your party.  Please phone  John Moore on 01869 351173 or email

We are able to  show this film in our village hall because the distributors, Cinegi Arts and Film, with funding from the Arts Council and support from the British Film Institute has negotiated the rights  to distribute  previously-filmed  live performances (Encore Performances) to non-conventional film venues such as ours.

We look forward to an exciting evening of dance so please give us your support.   Please arrive early to ensure a seat.
