New York City Ballet will help launch this new series with a nationwide cinema encore presentation of The Nutcracker which was originally broadcast in 2011 on PBS. Cinema tickets officially go on sale tomorrow nationwide on the Fathom Events website for screenings on Saturday, Dec. 5th at 12:55 pm and again on Thursday, Dec. 10th at 7pm. Go to the above link, observe the lovely Rebecca Krohn leaning in attitude under the bright spotlight, click on More Info and follow the link to Theater Locations throughout the U.S.
We don't recall that Rebecca was actually in this performance, but we do remember Ashley Bouder, Tiler Peck, Megan Fairchild, Joaquin De Luz and Daniel Ulbricht – totally worth a trip to the cinema if you're not able to get to Manhattan to see them perform live during The Nutcracker season.
We've got to thank Fathom Events for their continued support of presentations of ballet in their cinemas. We sure have seen some fabulous events in the past couple of years.
Meanwhile, we await word on who the other three dance company participants will be in this series.
Scratch that last sentence.
