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.
