Cultural seasons in Luxembourg. Winter 2013-2014
Yes, you may say “What ? Cultural life in Luxembourg? Does it exist?”. Here I should reassure you, as since this year the cultural life in Luxembourg has expanded its borders. What does it mean? Simply the fact that if you are in love with classic ballet, opera or theater, than your life is not miserable anymore. Starting September 2013 there is a live broadcasting of the Russian ballet from the Bolshoi as well as the best operas of Metropolitan Opera in selected number of cinemas all around the country.
Yes, it is not “true” ballet or opera since you seat in a cinema chair and watch everything on a screen. Yes, you may miss the rich decoration of Bolshoi and a glass of champagne during an intermission. However, if you are eagerly looking for a sip of classic music and wonderful performance form the world’s best masters this is your chance.
I have already watched Spartacus ballet and Tosca opera so far. I have to say that even if you miss the ambiance you might be able to appreciate every single gesture of dancer and singer because of the excellent work of camera men.
Here is the list of upcoming ballet performances from Bolshoi:
17 November, Sunday, at 5 p.m. – Le Corsaire ballet
22 December, Sunday, at 5 p.m. – Sleeping Beauty
19 January, Sunday, at 4 p.m. – Jewels
