Following on its success screening live opera on digital screens around the country, Emerging Pictures will present its ongoing “Ballet in Cinema” program in 50 Cinemark Theatres starting in June. Six just-recorded live  ballets will play across the country from June though August. The ballets are just a lead-up to Cinemark offering a full slate of “Ballet in Cinema” and “Opera in Cinema” alternative arts programming in the fall. Theater listings are here.  

The advantage of these presentations is that roving cameras bring you inside the action, where you can see the performers closer than a theatrical experience would ever permit. Yet the energy of a live performance is still there, even if the folks left the original theater a few weeks ago and can't hear your applause.

Emerging Pictures and Cinemark will present three ballets each from two eminent ballet companies. From Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet are “The Bright Stream,” “Raymonda” and “Le Corsaire” and from London’s Royal Ballet are “La Fille Mal Gardée,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” and “Romeo and Juliet.” Each ballet will be screened twice. (See below for performance dates.)

Ira Deutchman, Emerging Pictures’ co-managing director, noted: “Ever since Emerging started the ‘Ballet in Cinema’ series, we have received requests from all over the country for access to these performances.  Partnering with Cinemark, one of the largest theatre chains in the U.S., provides us an exciting opportunity to bring these outstanding performances to thousands of ballet fans who haven’t been able to see them before.”
