Bolshoi Ballet, The Bright Stream, Live in Cinemas tomorrow

Looking forward to this Bolshoi Ballet performance  of  The Bright Stream on Sunday, live HD via satellite, direct to the local cinema. Synopsis here.

It's high time Corfu's Cinema Orfeas applied for transmission rights and obtained this system. An essential facility for any town that has an audience for opera, ballet and theatre. Also essential for the students at Corfu's Ionian University Music Department. Some other parts of Greece have it already, including Preveza:

Athens - Athens Concert Hall
Kavala- Oscar Municipal Theatre of Kavala
Komotini - Komotini Concert Hall
Loutraki - Alexandreio Conference Center of Loutraki
Mytilene - Municipal of Mytilene (for info: theatro@mytilene.gr)
Preveza- Cultural Center of Preveza (for info: odioprev@otenet.gr)
Thessaloniki - Thessaloniki Concert Hall
Veroia - Star Cinema

These live HD satellite broadcasts have really democratised culture and brought enjoyment of ballet, opera and theatre to millions who had limited access in the past. Who needs the big city now?
