OLLI Jupiter Presents National Theatre Live and the Bolshoi Ballet

You may not know, but OLLI Jupiter is a venue for National Theatre Live programs and Bolshoi Ballet performances. OLLI at Jupiter began showing limited presentations in 2016, and over the past few years OLLI Jupiter has consistently added new programs and performances. Don’t miss out!

National Theatre Live (NTL) is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast world-class theatre to cinemas in the UK and internationally. Though each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time. The Bolshoi Theatre is a symbol of Russia for all time. It was awarded this honor due to the major contribution it made to the history of the Russian performing arts. This history is on-going and today Bolshoi Theatre artists continue to contribute to its many bright pages.

At this time, OLLI Jupiter is presenting recorded versions of performances from NTL and the Bolshoi Ballet that have already been shown live. If you missed the live version, join us for a recorded version.

Tickets are $20 for members and non-members.


Upcoming NTL Programs and Bolshoi Ballet Performances at OLLI Jupiter

“Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow: The Golden Age”
In the 1920s, “The Golden Age” cabaret is a favorite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realizes that she is the beautiful dancer “Mademoiselle Margot,” but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka. With its jazzy score by Dmitri Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, “The Golden Age” is a refreshing and colorful dive into the roaring ‘20s. A historic ballet that can be seen only at the Bolshoi!

“Water Lilies of Monet: The Magic of Water and Light: Great Art on Screen”
Voyage through the masterpieces and obsessions of the genius and founder of Impressionism, Claude Monet. An art-world disruptor at the turn of the 20th century whose obsession with capturing light and water broke all convention, Monet revolutionized Modern Art with his timeless masterpieces. An in-depth, exclusive tour led by Monet scholars of the museums that house the largest collections of the prolific artist’s lily paintings, including the Musée Marmottan Monet, the Orsay Museum, the world-famous panels at L’Orangerie and concluding with Monet’s own house and gardens at Giverny, the site where his fascination for water lilies was born.

This is a documentary film, not a live lecture.
