Maybe I'm a snob, but I always saw 3D movies as a gimmicky fad that should never have left the '80s. Dance films in 3D seemed especially specious. Do you really want Giselle jumping out of the screen at you?
If Step Up can do it, why not Giselle? On July 12, you'll be able to watch ballet dancers sauté off the screen in 3D for the first time in history! Movie theaters nationwide will present the Kirov Ballet's Giselle at 12 pm and 7:30 pm (local time). Bolshoi Ballet star Natalie Osipova and Kirov phenom Leonid Sarafanov perform the leads in St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre.
