The Bright Stream starring Svetlana Lunkina

This very very funny ballet is just chock-full of brilliant dancing from the Bolshoi's best. I am looking at organizing a special screening of it on Sunday February 12th at 930 am at the Yonge and Dundas Cineplex in Toronto. However, I would need 100 people to sign up to see it (at $25 per ticket) to cover the costs. Please let me know if you would come!
Yes, I want to see The Bright Stream
Music of Ballet Course
This course offered in January by Rick Phillips (NOT by me) at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto looks at the ballet music of Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky. Only the music, not any other aspects of the ballets.
