Bahrain's La Fontaine throwing movie night in January

If you missed out on the Russian performance of Swan Lake at Bahrain’s National Theatre, don’t worry – you’ll soon have the chance to soak up some culture at La Fontaine Centre for Contemporary Arts.

The art gallery-cum-spa-cum-restaurant, which has an open-air amphitheatre, will be showing a screening of The Dream on January 7.

The one-act ballet, which is an interpretation of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was choreographed by Frederick Ashton back in 1964 and dazzled audiences.

Tickets will cost BHD10+, but the value of the ticket can be used in the restaurant on the same evening.

The screening will start at 8pm, and dinner is available from 7pm.
