If You Can't Get to the Royal Ballet, the Royal Ballet Will Come to You



It is no secret that I am a fan of ballet. I love it and would happily attend every week. I am lucky I live in New York and for most of the year have the opportunity to see live ballet weekly. But that's not the case everywhere. Even with the availability the cost of tickets makes ballet-going more of a treat than a weekly event. I was delighted to discover the cinema evenings produced by Fathom Events, taking place at local theaters. Yes, the ballet is coming to you.

"The Winter's Tale," based on the Shakespeare play, will be screened on February 17 and "Swan Lake," will be screened on March 19. While Winter's Tale is a new adaptation, Swan Lake is a beloved classic of dance. I'm always excited to see a new work and find a new favorite and I love seeing my favorite ballets again and again. And yes, Swan Lake is one of my great favorites. I cry every time I see it.

Thanks to our friends at Fathom Events I am happy to provide a link for New York and New Jersey blog buddies to win tickets to local theaters, for these performances.  The events are one day only for each ballet.


"Swan Lake" may be my favorite ballet. Are there other ballet fans in Buttercupland? What are your favorite ballets?

It's grown very chilly -- downright cold -- in New York City. It's hat, scarf and boots weather again. Family and friends in New England, keep cozy and safe!

As always thanks for visiting and take good care.

Please note: I have received tickets to these events to enable me to write about them, but there is no other compensation. The opinions are all mine.

You are lucky to live where you live because you get to experience all this terrific entertainment. Getting to see ballet there is wonderful, for sure. Here in our town we are very limited. Was excited we were going to the get the Broadway touring company of Love Letters here, but it was canceled at last minute because of Hal Linden.

Love that we have Fathom Events nearby! Recently we saw Of Mice and Men, the recent Broadway production, and also saw Bily Elliott, the London production. Great theatre!

I enjoy most dance, but ballet is in a class all its own. How lucky you are to live in such a rich environment! What an opportunity!

How wonderful it would be to attend live ballet performances often! Stay warm out there. I hear that you're getting worse weather than we here in NW Wisconsin are this winter, although ours is almost always colder, just without as much snow this year. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

That's wonderful that you are able to see your love of ballet on the screen, probably a better view that if you were there in person.
