Emerging Pictures’ Ballet in Cinema Series

Here’s an addendum to my earlier post on Emerging Pictures’ exciting new Ballet in Cinema series.

All of the showings on the schedule I posted are at the BIG Manhattan Cinema except for the December 19th Nutcracker, performed by the Bolshoi. That one is at the Kew Gardens Cinema in Queens.

There is one additional performance:

The Nutcracker, performed by the Royal Ballet, December 26th, 3:00 p.m., at Symphony Space (this one is recorded).

For other performances in the series, and for people outside of New York, you can consult the Ballet in Cinema website for further showings. You can search for showings by typing in your zip code. I am told you should check the website frequently as it is updated often.

I’m very excited about this, as you can probably tell 🙂 The Metropolitan Opera has been very successful with their in-cinema showings, really brought opera to younger audiences by making it more affordable and engaging in this way, and has increased opera’s popularity. I hope this series will do the same for ballet.

  1. Good move by the ballet world. Art isn’t actually worth much if only the wealthy can afford to see it.
