  • Programming Notes Lotte Reiniger and Matthew Bourne are masters of their art in their time. Reiniger in 1920s and 30 animation, Bourne in contemporary dance. Here's they present Bizet's classis opera in their own unique style. Reiniger's silhouette animation and detail is exquisite and remarkably provocative, for it's time. It's a visual delight. Bourne has taken apart the engine of the opera, and like a great mechanic, put it back to together to be something more. Set in small town America on a hot summer's evening. The tale of desire, jealousies and ambition is set to dance in a dazzling display.
