Live Cinema: The Nutcracker — The Royal Ballet

The young Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favorite present — a Nutcracker doll. But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure. After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming — but doesn’t she recognize Drosselmeyer’s nephew?

Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.

This production of The Nutcracker has enthralled audiences for over 30 years since its opening in 1984. It showcases the full energy of the Company, alongside the emerging talent of young dancers from The Royal Ballet School. The stunning costumes, numbering around 600 and dating back to the world-premiere, are revitalized for the show.

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.

This screening includes an onscreen introduction and one intermission. This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.

Live Cinema: La Bayadère — Royal Ballet

This ballet will transport audiences to a world of temple dancers, vengeful gods, jealous princesses and noble warriors.

La Bayadère tells a story of love, passion and vengeance. Nikiya, a temple dancer, is in love with the warrior Solor but the High Brahmin desires her for himself. When Nikiya spurns him, the furious High Brahmin tells Princess Gamzatti, Solor’s fiancée, that Solor and Nikiya are in love. In revenge, Gamzatti orders Nikiya to be killed. Solor is haunted by Nikiya’s spirit and dreams of being reunited with her. At his wedding to Gamzatti he finally achieves his desire: the angry gods take vengeance for the death of Nikiya by destroying the temple, killing the whole wedding party. Solor and Nikiya’s spirits are reunited.

Choreographer Natalia Makarova brings the nineteenth-century Russian classic La Bayadère to life in her adaptation of Marius Petipa’s original choreography. La Bayadère was practically unknown to audiences outside Russia until Makarova brought her production to The Royal Ballet in 1989. It has since become a core work in the Company’s repertory. Particular highlights include the Kingdom of Shades scene in Act III, a showcase for the corps de ballet as they perform arabesques across the moonlit stage. The cast will feature Royal Ballet Principals Marianela Nuñez as Nikiya, Vadim Muntagirov as Solor and Natalia Osipova as Gamzatti.

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.

This screening runs approximately 2 hours 50 minutes including an onscreen introduction and two intermissions.

Live Music: We Three (America's Got Talent Semi-Finalists)

We Three (siblings Joshua, Bethany and Manny) warmed hearts with their unforgettable 2018 "America’s Got Talent" audition in which they poured all their emotions into an original song, which they dedicated to their late mother, who passed away two years ago after a battle with cancer. They finished the season as semi-finalists and release their self-titled debut album in December.

Joshua uniquely plays the piano and drums (sometimes simultaneously), Manny the guitar, and Bethany the bass. But there are no rules, as each can adeptly swap instruments and often sound like a much larger ensemble. A strong lead vocal is complemented by lush harmonies that glide with superlative ease over complex arrangements that appear deliciously simple. We Three's original songwriting style is positive and purposeful, with smart lyrics and infectious melodies.

Ímar: Celtic Irish Traditional Concert

Ímar: Celtic Irish Traditional Concert

The five members of Ímar have been awarded many top prizes in Celtic music, including nine All-Ireland and eight All-Britain titles. Their sound is mainly traditional Irish music with some contemporary and original compositions. The band were BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners in 2018 and were nominated for “Band of the Year” at the 2018 Scots Trad Music Awards.

Adam Brown (bodhrán), Adam Rhodes (bouzouki), Mohsen Amini (concertina), Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes) and Tomás Callister (fiddle) share a strong background in Irish music, although only Murphy actually hails from Ireland. Rhodes and Callister are from the Isle of Man, whilst Amini is a Glasgow native, and Brown is originally from Suffolk. These foundations underpin many of Ímar’s distinctive qualities, in both instrumentation and material. Ímar’s unmistakable synergy, however, centers on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. All three places once shared the same Gaelic language, and a similar, clearly potent, kinship endures between their musical traditions.

Museum After Hours: Presenter Gary Lentz

Museum After Hours: Presenter Gary Lentz

If you have lived in Walla Walla for any length of time, you have heard the distant horn of diesel locomotives as they go about their switching chores. The sound usually echoes off the buildings and greets the early risers. But did you know that engines have been making that sound with whistles, horns, and bells for the past 143 years? The stretch of railroad from Walla Walla to Wallula is the oldest point-to-point rail operation in the State of Washington.

In this Museum After Hours presentation Gary Lentz portrays William Tye, a conductor on the Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad, who offers a visual presentation on the history of the railroad from a railroad employee’s point of view. The talk will discuss the people who built their dreams, cleared the right-of-way, laid the track, and operated the engines and trains that helped build Walla Walla into the town it is today.

Imagine riding on the railroad in 1878 from Walla Walla to Wallula. You have to make a connection with one of the riverboats that will transport you to Portland, down the Columbia River, and around the rapids. From there you can make connections by sea to places around the world. The Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad provides you with that opportunity. It may be slow and somewhat dangerous but such is life in the last part of the Nineteenth Century. Lentz’s presentation as William Tye will provide insights into those dangers and the rewards of taking such a trip.

Fort Walla Walla Museum is in the process of restoring one of the original engines on the Walla Walla & Columbia River. The fourth of six engines owned by the railroad, the Blue Mountain, is currently on display. Background on the engine, how it came to work for the Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad, and what happened after it left, as well as how it found its way back, will all be discussed and illustrated in the program.

The program will also explain why Doctor Dorsey Baker’s Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad was nicknamed “The Rawhide Railroad,” why “snakeheads” were a threat to passengers, and why the fledgling railroad was boycotted in its early years by the same people it promised to serve.

Please join the museum for this interesting and fascinating look into a subject often taken for granted but so important to us and those who settled the area a century and a half ago. All Abooooard!

The cost of this holiday tradition is $5 plus one non-perishable food item per child to share with the YWCA domestic violence shelter. Space is limited, so registration is required.

Live Cinema: The King and I

The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s "The King And I" comes to cinemas – recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium.

Making their West End debuts are the original Broadway stars: Kelli O’Hara (Anna) reprising her Tony Award-winning performance, and Tony and Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe (The King). Also returning to her Tony Award-winning role Ruthie Ann Miles (Lady Thiang).

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With a score filled with well-known songs like “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Shall We Dance,” and featuring a company of more than 50 performers, The King and I is a testament to the lavish golden age of gloriously romantic musical theatre.

Museum After Hours: James Payne, Executive Director of Fort Walla Walla Museum

You may have seen James Payne, Executive Director of Fort Walla Walla Museum, giving flintknapping demonstrations during events. This is an early form of tool production that takes a practiced hand to replicate.

For this Museum After Hours presentation, he will be going deeper into the production of this lithic (Stone Age) toolmaking, specifically technology during the Ice Age. During his graduate research he investigated methods of lithic tool production techniques, refitting some of the 11,000 pieces of stone debris from a workshop in northern Maine. This revealed both a technology with parallels to the Upper Paleolithic of Europe and a caution on interpretations derived from experimental archaeology.

Museum After Hours is a free monthly lecture series that is open to the public. Please note that due to the Museum's winter hours, the presentation will begin at 4 pm.
