European ballet and opera coming to Snellville

Carmike 12 Theatre in Snellville has teamed up with a specialty film distribution company called Emerging Cinema to broadcast live European opera and ballet performances. The series is called 'Opera in Cinema: The World's Greatest Opera Houses.'

The first performance will be Richard Wagner's “Die Walk├╝re” (The Ride of the Valkryies) at 11 a.m. on Dec. 7.  The live broadcast will be presented from the La Scala opera house in Milan, Italy. Each live broadcast will have an evening rebroadcast 8 days later. 

Live broadcasts of opera have a growing interest in the suburbs of metropolitan areas. The company has identified certain communities to be appreciative of live performances. These performances should draw more visitors to Snellville. For those who live in Snellville, it's an opportunity to enjoy a cultural event without having to drive to downtown Atlanta.

The Nutcracker will be presented in live broadcast on Dec. 19, with ballet from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.

The Carmike 12 is located at 1905 Scenic Highway, Snellville Ga. 30078.
