By then it will have been available on DVD for several days, but on Saturday, November 1, at 1:00 p.m. local time the Royal Ballet's Giselle with Alina Cojocaru, Johan Kobborg, Marianela Nuņez and Martin Harvey will be screened at Canadian cinemas.

Personally I'll vouch for the value of watching ballet on the big screen. The sense of kinetic energy lost when dance is filmed is largely restored when dancers are magnified many times over. I don't like Peter Wright's production, but I'll go see it for Cojocaru.

Here's a trailer: http://centralsystem...resentation=230

Most screenings will take place at Empire Theatres.


Participating cities: St. John's, Halifax, Sydney, Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton, Charlottetown, St. Catharines, North York, Mississauga, Ottawa, London, Kitchener, Kingston, Richmond Hill, Burlington, Bolton, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, North Vancouver and Victoria.

The ballet will also be screened at the Ex-Centris Theatre in Montreal: www.ex-centris.com
and Ridge Theatre in Vancouver: www.festivalcinemas.ca (10:00 a.m. PT)
