Trailer For Frederick Wiseman's 'La Danse: The Paris Opera Ballet'


We were going to talk about Frederick Wiseman's new documentary about the Paris Opera Ballet onFilm Club of the Airthis week but unfortunately it didn't work out. "La Danse: The Paris Opera Ballet" opens today at the Gaslamp's Reading Cinemas and I can't wait to see it. Wiseman goes behind the scenes, following the company through seven different performances, filming rehearsals, and even documenting the make-up, costume and administrative departments. In Wiseman's strict observational style, without talking-head interviews or voice-over, this is bound to be an intimate look into the workings of a premiere dance company.
