A question about sine of multiple angles

Today, when I'm following paper, I run into this equation
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{N+1}\sum_{n=1}^{N} \frac{\sin^2 \frac{n\pi}{N+1}}{\cos \theta- \cos\frac{n\pi}{N+1}} = \frac{\sin[N\theta]}{\sin[ (N+1)\theta]}$
where N is a positive integer. This equation seems to be always satisfied, but I can't find a way to prove it.

Could anybody help me?
