Letter: Great opportunity to watch Bolshoi Ballet from Golden

Goldenites have a wonderful opportunity to watch some world class ballet from the Bolshoi in Moscow.

Dear Editor:

Last December 21 The Kicking Horse Cinema brought ballet enthusiasts the Nutcracker Ballet, a direct satellite steaming from a live performance by the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. Attendance numbers were a record 89 for a ballet, twice the number attending earlier live streaming ballets during the year.

This January 25 Kicking Horse Cinema is showing Swan Lake, with Romeo and Juliet following on March 8, both live streamed via satellite from the Bolshoi in Moscow. In many ways these performances are more enjoyable than a live performance, with off stage interviews, behind the scenes access, and close up capturing of the ballet, all of which could not be seen at a live performance And the cinema ticket cost is way less than an air ticket to Moscow.

Nutcracker was a Christmas favourite, hence the record attendance. Make a note on your calendars for these next two ballets and hopefully the attendance numbers will be such that the cinema will bring more ballets to those who enjoy this beautiful dance form.
