Looking at the complete plan from Argentina’s time zone, everything will start at eleven o’clock today, with the National Ballet of Australia and it will end at 20 tomorrow with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal.

Some 37 invited companies they will only appear for five minutes, like the one in Alvin Ailey or the casts of Scotland and Finland. But others promise segments of up to two hours of transmission, such as the Mariinsky Theater Ballet and the American Ballet of New York (ABT).

The 2019 edition was the most successful to date, with peaks of 315 million users of social networks around the world; This time, more views are expected, since in a pandemic and with more time at home, everyone incorporated the routine of screens.

Morning classes, rehearsal snippets, interviews with stars, and lots of behind-the-scenes footage is a nice synthesis of what to watch. A backstage that will inevitably be crossed, in many cases, by the joy of returning to rehearsals and stages, and by the meticulous description of all the protocols applied in each company.

The 2020 edition will not have, for obvious reasons, the usual massive calls to see the programming on a giant screen with popcorn and blankets; The good thing is that in Argentina it will be possible to see it a few days before the return to classes in the dance studios, which according to the approved protocol will be able to reopen their doors on November 1.
