Swan Lake 3D: from Russia with love

Posted at 2:30 pm, June 4, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment
Live 3D Swan Lake

If you fancy seeing one of the world’s best ballet companies but can’t hop off to Russia for an evening, this is the closest you’ll get to the real thing. The first ever live 3D relay of a ballet – ‘Swan Lake’ – beamed from St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre to cinema screens across London and around the world. It’s filmed by Cameron Pace, James Cameron’s 3D production company, so imagine the production values of ‘Avatar’ or ‘Life of Pi’ applied to ballet’s classic man-loves-swan romance (it’s not bestiality, honest, she’s a princess who’s been bewitched).

See Swan Lake in 3D this Thursday June 6; for more info, see our feature.
