    A friend and I shall be attending your cinema screening of Swan Lake on 17th March. I have clicked on the trailer and, with respect, it is rubbish! Not the dancing, of course, but the lack of any clips of significant scenes from the ballet. However, this will not prevent our attending the performance as we know the ballet so well. Poor trailers may well discourage people from attending ballets they are not familiar with.
