Great news! "A version of the exhibition originated at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in 2010, but the National Gallery’s adaptation will include more than 50 additional pieces on loan from museums around the world, including Dansmuseet in Sweden and the National Gallery of Australia."

In London it was a wonderful exhibit. The addition of the stuff from Australia makes it all the more worthwhile!!!

Indeed great news, AG!

The National Gallery/DC's usual practice is to run a series of free lectures and films in conjunction with the big exhibitions, so keep an eye on the NGA's website for the announcement of special programs. http://www.nga.gov/programs/index.shtm

For ballet-lovers hoping to combine a visit to DC for this exhibit along with live ballet, the Kennedy Center will be hosting Ballet Across America III on June 4-9, 2013; that may be the best week to attend, although it coincides with ABT's 'Corsaire Week' at the MET. http://www.kennedy-c...ts/?event=BNBSJ

Thanks for the heads-up. The press release has a little more detail about the related programming at the museum:

http://www.nga.gov/p...3413/index.shtm

Related Activities
In 2013, the Gallery will present an array of activities celebrating the dynamic Ballets Russes, including on-site ballet performances and instructional programs, an online brochure, lectures, concerts, and a symposium as well as film screenings, gallery talks, podcasts, an audio tour, and a variety of offerings in the Gallery Shops.

Kbarber, the tour is a great idea. Welcome to DC!

California, thanks for the presser. The specific titles of films/lectures/etc are usually announced about a month before a major exhibit opens. I'd expect that we'll know specifics in late March/early April. If anything, the quarterly schedule of films will be out by April 1.

The National Gallery just sent out an e-mail announcing films and other events related to the exhibit:

My copy of the catalog came in the mail this week, and it is very, very beautiful.  For those of us who cannot get to the exhibit, it's absolutely worth the money.

The National Gallery has posted the 30-minute documentary, which I understand is shown at the exhibit:

And for those of you in the DC area, do note that the exhibit itself has been extended to October 6.

Just came back from seeing the exhibit. If you have a chance don't miss it.  There are items from ballets I have never heard of like Sadko.  the documentary is worth watching but not necessarily revelatory if you know the subject matter.
