Opera and Dance in Film/Swan Lake

For most of us mere mortals, front-row seats at a performance by one of the world's leading ballet companies are way too expensive. Today, though, you can see the St. Petersburg-based Mariinsky Ballet's production of Swan Lake up on the big screen for less money than a meal out. The Boston Globe called this production "breathtakingly gorgeous." See why at 7 p.m. Thursday, 3 p.m. Sunday. Silverado 19 IMAX Theatre, 24720 State Highway 249, Tomball. For information, call 281-290-0077 or visit www.santikos.com. $15.
