Forget sinking ships and giant blue aliens. Director James Cameron has a new over-the-top movie project: Swan Lake.

No, but really. Cameron has teamed up with Russia’s Mariinsky Ballet to present the world’s first-ever live 3D performance broadcast—and what better production to choose than Swan Lake, the most epic of all epic ballets?

Even better: Starring as Odette/Odile will be the gorgeous Ekaterina Kondaurova. She feels larger than life when you’re watching her from the back row of the opera house—just imagine how fabulous she’ll be 20 feet high and seemingly leaping right out of the movie theater screen!

(Or, uh, maybe that’ll be terrifying. But it’ll definitely be impressive.)

The broadcast is scheduled for June 6 at 6:30 pm local time in the U.S. across all time zones (while it’ll be filmed live, the broadcast will be tape-delayed). Click here to find out where it’s playing near you—then take a look at the official trailer:
