Acclaimed opera set for cinema

DATES are still to be confirmed for the showing of the Marriage of Figaro at Hervey Bay’s BigScreen Cinemas.

Thanks to CinemaLive, the Hervey Bay cinema will be bringing plenty of opera productions, along with much, much more, to our screens in coming months.

At this time it is believed the opera will screen later this month.

The opera tells the tale of romantic conquests and is set in Seville in the late 18th century.

The live screening comes from one of the world’s most beautiful opera venues, the Sydney Opera House, and stars Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Figaro, Taryn Fiebig as Susanna, Peter Coleman-Wright as Count Almaviva and Rachelle Durkin as the Countess.

The cinema will also be screening Sprokets, also courtesy of CinemaLive, which is a program put together for pre-schoolers, made especially for cinemas.

The cinema will be screening an hour-long show each Wednesday from 10am, starting on October 27 and running until December 15.

The show is great for younger kids as they don’t have to sit quietly – they can get up and sing and dance.

All tickets are $6.

For all the business-minded people out there, Kochies Business Builders will be screening via a live satellite feed from Sydney, featuring morning television host David Koch.

Small and medium sized business owners will be especially interested in this one – and Hervey Bay’s Cinema is one of only 10 regional cinemas in the country receiving this special screening.

The cinema is also looking forward to the special midnight screening of Harry Potter on November 17.
