The Friends of The Australian Ballet will be hosting the Australian Premiere screening of the Royal Ballet’s new production of FRANKENSTEIN next week.

The Royal Ballet, based in London’s Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, have turned Mary Shelley’s gothic classic into a full-length story ballet. Described as heart-wrenchingly beautiful, the period adaption returns to the original themes of Shelley’s novel- away from the horror stereotypes and into the heart and soul of a tale that is ultimately a love story.

The screening stars principal dancers Laura Morera, Federico Bonelli and Australia’s own Steven McRae.
