This doesn't really fit under either television or cinema, so I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for news of the increasing number of live-streamed performances etc. (although the Royal Ballet Insights/rehearsals have their own thread). From the "German" thread:
This just in: The Importance of Being Earnest Free live stream on Saturday 2 April at 7.25pm (BST) If you couldn’t get tickets or want to see it again – the chance is here as we bring you The Importance of Being Earnest live and for free on the Royal Opera House YouTube Channel. After a sell-out run at the Linbury Studio Theatre in 2013, The Royal Opera has taken Ramin Gray’s production of The Importance of Being Earnest to the Barbican and now online. Oscar Wilde’s great comedy is refashioned in a suitably bold and bonkers way by Gerald Barry in this acclaimed operatic version. The plot alone is packed with comic potential. Jack and his friend Algernon are in a pickle: they love Gwendolen and Cecily, but there is confusion over who is called Earnest – a name of which both girls are very fond. The comedy unfurls through a wonderfully idiosyncratic score of virtuoso orchestral colour, giddy with cucumber sandwiches, smashed plates and megaphones. Gray’s production is surprising and inventive as it delights in the opera’s kaleidoscope of music and manners. For the anarchic-at-heart, this is definitely a must-see. So join us online on Saturday 2 April at 7.25pm (BST). The live stream of The Importance of Being Earnest is delivered in association with BBC Arts. The performance will be available to watch shortly after the live stream on the BBC Arts online page and the ROH website for 30 days.
