Through a partnership with French movie theatre giant Gaumont-Pathé, four performances of Russia’s Bolshoi Ballet will be beamed to 300 cinemas in 12 countries, including the United States, Canada, Italy, Poland, Spain, the Czech Republic, Germany, and France, as reported by CBC News.
Similar technology has made it possible for the Metropolitan Opera and the Berlin Philharmonic to reach audiences around the world. The Bolshoi performances will kick off December 19 with The Nutcracker, followed by Gisele on January 23, Don Quixote on March 6, and Coppélia on May 29.
In Canada, the performances will be beamed into Cineplex theatres in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Quebec. Tickets are on sale through www.Cineplex.com.
