Landmark Cinemas in Canada to show Royal Ballet cinemacasts


For Royal Ballet broadcasts only, some cinemas in the Landmark chain will be joining Cineplex in showing the live broadcasts. Bolshoi Ballet cinemacasts continue to be only at the Cineplex. For more information on how to find a ballet cinemacast near you: http://toursenlair.blogspot.ca/2015/09/landmark-cinemas-in-canada-to-show.html



Zakharova, Polunin to star in Bolshoi Giselle cinemacast


The Bolshoi will be broadcasting Giselle on Sunday 11 October. Controversial ballet wunderkind Sergei Polunin will star as Albrecht, if he has recovered from a recent neck strain. Svetlana Zakharova will dance Giselle (not one of my fave Giselles, I must say).


In Canada these will be shown at some Cineplex theatres. Check locations near you on www.cineplex.ca



Livestream Paloma Herrera farewell in R&J


Former ABT star Paloma Herrera's farewell performance will be in Maximiliano Guerra's Romeo and Juliet at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. It will be streamed live on Saturday, October 17, at 8:00 pm ART, (7pm Eastern and 4pm Pacific). http://www.teatrocolon.org.ar/en-vivo
The last livestream from Buenos Aires failed to transmit the video, so let's hope this one works!

Royal Ballet Romeo and Juliet at Bloor Cinema in Toronto
If you missed the cinemacast with Steven McRae and Sarah Lamb at the Cineplex recently, you can catch it on Saturday October 31st at 3 pm at the Bloor Cinema, Bloor St just east of Bathurst.
