I don’t know if this has been discussed elsewhere, so I am starting a new thread. I hope that is ok. I’m sure we have all been thinking about how theatres might open when they can. Timing of course is unknown at this stage. I realise it’s totally disheartening for performers to dance to an empty auditorium. So I am assuming that is not an option being considered. The point of my post is to ask if anyone knows whether theatres are considering opening with a partial ‘socially distanced’ audience ... say 1/2 or even less capacity? (I am assuming masks for audience members will be compulsory, and people coughing etc will have to leave.) And then I also wonder .... if theatres can top this up by live-streaming performances at a cost? I know I’d pay say £20 to watch often. E.g. I would have wanted to watch each of the RB and ENB Swan Lake casts at least once. That would go some way to compensating for missing out on tickets for in-house seats. I would still hope to attend as many live performances as ‘before’. Thoughts?
