BALLET, OPERA AND MORE GRACE LOCAL CINEMAS
Ever dreamed of seeing a performance of The Metropolitan Opera but couldn’t get to New York City? Or maybe watching the famed Bolshoi Ballet was on your bucket list, but a trip to Moscow was out of the question? Thanks to Fathom Events, you can see both right here in Atlanta. At select area movie theaters, live performances of The Metropolitan Opera and taped recent performances of the Bolshoi Ballet are shown—in high definition, no less—on the big screen. For instance, as part of The Met: Live in HD series, the AMC Dine-In Theatres Buckhead 6 will feature a live streaming of Nabucco on Jan. 7 and 11, Roméo et Juliette on Jan. 21 and 25 and Rusalka on Feb. 25.
The brilliant dancers of the Bolshoi Ballet will light up the screen at the Regal Perimeter Pointe Stadium 10 in a showing of The Sleeping Beauty on Jan. 22 and Swan Lake on Feb. 5. Future showings include performances of The Met’s La Traviata and the Bolshoi’s A Hero of Our Time. Fathom Events also treats theatergoers to other special screenings, including Broadway shows, concerts, comedy tours and classic movies such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and From Here to Eternity. – Jill Becker
