Svetlana Lunkina & Bolshoi Ballet Bright Stream screening February 12

Tours en l'air is hoping to arrange a special screening of Alexei Ratmansky's hugely entertaining and very funny ballet The Bright Stream on Sunday 12 February 9:30 am. at the Yonge and Dundas Cineplex theatre in Toronto.

This ballet, starring National Ballet of Canada principal dancer Svetlana Lunkina and the Bolshoi, follows the shenanigans on a collective farm and is chock-full of great dancing. True love wins out in the end.

For a private screening to happen, there need to be at least 100 people in attendance. Ticket price will be $25 including HST. I can arrange this only if I am certain sufficient numbers will sign up.

Please email me at toursenlair@gmail.com if you are likely to attend this. And please spread the word among your friends.
