Britain's Royal Ballet reaches out online

A rehearsal at the Royal Ballet in Covent Garden

Culture vulture alert:

Starting tomorrow morning (March 23) the Royal Ballet is live streaming its work day on youtube. The whole day. Cameras will be showing rehearsals and backstage preparations for the evening's performances. (I don't know whether they will show diva behavior and minor hissy fits.)

In any case, if you love ballet or are fascinated by the reality behind the make-believe, it might be worth a few minutes of your on-line day.
