The King and I: From The London Palladium 12A

We are excited to bring the critically-acclaimed The King and I: From The London Palladium to cinemas worldwide in November, with 'Broadway's undisputed Queen' (The Sunday Times) Kelli O'Hara (The Bridges of Madison County, Nice Work if You Can Get It, The Light in the Piazza) stealing the show in the role of a lifetime as Ann Leonowens and Ken Watanabe (Inception, The Last Samurai, Memoirs of a Geisha) playing the part of the King of Siam.

The much-loved musical tells the story of an unconventional and tempestuous relationship which develops between the King of Siam and Anna. After the huge success of the Lincoln Center Theater's production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I, the production extended its engagement for a final three weeks to Saturday 29th September at London's iconic Palladium, where this cinema broadcast was filmed.

The Princess Aurora falls  under the curse of the Evil Fairy Carabosse on her sixtenth birthday, falling  into a deep slumber of one hundred years. Only the kiss of a prince could break the spell. A resplendent fairytale ballet perfomed by the Bolshoi, The Sleeping Beauty features  scores of magical characters including fairies, the Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and a beautiful young Princess Aurora performed by Olga Smirnova, a “truly extraordinary talent” (The Telegraph). This is classical ballet at its finest.
