If you missed A Dancer’s Dream, our sold-out 2012–13 season finale, here’s some good news. As promised, it’s coming to movie theaters starting September 12.
The film — consisting of the complete concert broadcast, behind-the-scenes footage, and more goodies — opens in New York City on Thursday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m. at City Cinemas 123 (tickets). Another local screening will be on Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas (tickets). Then the film travels to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and other U.S. cities, and to Canada, the U.K., Russia, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and more.
Blending music with dance, live animation, pre-recorded video, puppetry, and circus arts, A Dancer’s Dream blurs the lines between reality and imagination, audience and performer. The production turned Avery Fisher hall into a dream world through costumes, sets, staging, and live filmmaking, Giants Are Small’s signature technique in which a real-time feed of musicians, puppets, and miniatures is projected above the Orchestra.
An audio recording of A Dancer’s Dream, produced by the Philharmonic, is also currently available for purchase in major online music stores, including iTunes, and available for streaming on Spotify.
