Blame Canada

So remember how, starting back in May and continuing into June, then again in September (see the archives), we were lamenting that dance is not as popular as opera–and trying to figure out why and what to do about it?
In late September, reader Griffin suggested that dance do like the Met Opera and provide the movie theaters with high-definition simulcasts of sumptuous live shows.
And now they’re doing it, they’re doing it!!
The Canadians, of course.
A simulcast of the National Ballet of Canada’s “Nutcracker” will run in 69 theaters from Vancouver to Montreal on December 22. Tickets: $10 for kids, $20 for adults. Lucky them.
