High Wycombe & District

Opera & Dance

The Opera & Dance Group is organised by the South Bucks (Beaconsfield) U3A who have kindly extended an open invitation to neighbouring U3As to attend their monthly meetings. The 2 hour monthly screenings overcomes the limitations of attending live performances and is a bargain at £2 per head.
Close to home, we enjoy films and performances from around the globe and over the decades, as our discs do not fade as the performers may have done.
Those who have never contemplated Opera are particularly welcome. (They may become addicted, wholly to their benefit).

You might like to know that the Empire Cinemas at Handy Cross{the old Wycombe6), Everyman Cinema, Gerrards Cross and Cineworld, Eden Centre, High Wycombe are advertising their autumn/winter season of opera and dance by direct screenings.

The Empire staff tell me that you can book direct on-line with the New York Met, Royal Opera House or the Bolshoi UK box offices. On the Royal Opera House web site you can select your performance then search for your nearest or favourite cinema. The programmes are shown below:

Live from Moscow - The Bolshoi Ballet - www.bolshoiballetcinema.co.uk

29th March - Romeo & Juliet
19th April - Jewels

Live from New York - Metropolitan Opera, New York - www.metliveinhd.co.uk
