Aelita Project Photo Shoot7pm doors, 8pm show

Aelita (1924) is one of the greatest sci-fi films of world cinema. This imaginative, visually-striking 1924 Soviet space epic will be performed with an innovative new score & reinterpretation by the renowned Volatinsky Quartet. The stunning design & tragi-comic tale tell of a journey to Mars to escape from a crime of passion set against the backdrop of the fledgling Soviet Russian State.

This is the story of Aelita, Queen of Mars. She is bored with her dull – and chaste – life among Martian aristocrats, and wishes to learn earthly passions. The Red Planet is ripe for revolution.

The Volatinsky Quartet is Lucy Voronov,- Cimbalom, Anatoli Torjinski – Cello, Stephen Lalor – Guitar & Domra & Jess Ciampa – Percussion.
