  1. 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 audi
  2. Has everyone received this email from the Royal Opera House? They're streaming some of their back catalogue of productions via Facebook & YouTube. Looks terrific. #fromourhousetoyourhouse https://www.roh.org.uk/news/the-royal-opera-house-launches-a-programme-of-free-online-content-for-the-culturally-curious-at-home?utm_source=wordfly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2020_March_Free_Content_Announcement_Public_Ask&utm_content=version_A&emailsource=49912 NB: I hope this isn't replicating what others have already posted; I did check to see ...
  3. Good to see this: People on this forum have often expressed their disappointment at not being able to see NYCB and/or Balanchine, so it's good to have the opportunity.
  4. The Scottish Ballet has a new film out this December. Free online (donation requested) This Christmas, Scottish Ballet will bring the magic of the theatre right into your home. In a deserted city, a young boy stumbles into a theatre. He wanders through the auditorium, where rows of velvet chairs, draping curtains and chandeliers seem to lie in lonely wait for audiences to return. The theatre may be empty, but the show will go on... Starring characters from our most popular festive ballets, the worlds of the Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy collide when the theatre bu
  5. I had intended to get this up straightaway once the new anti-coronavirus measures were announced, but life has got in the way. Thank you to everyone else who has posted relevant material in the meantime. We knew it was inevitable that more stringent measures would have to be taken, so with no live theatre, concerts, plays, and dance for the foreseeable future, what can we do, arts-wise, to help us pass the next few months? We already have a thread going on online streaming in the opera and classical music world here:
  6. POB list of streaming performances, again apologies if this has already been posted I couldn't find it when I searched. https://www.operadeparis.fr/en/news/performances-of-the-paris-opera-to-rediscover-online?fbclid=IwAR2897HpAQ5h9NiZPnN7BoT-1TQ0gfcv2arLRxKbXfmrtdug2UjEeoKXlYY At the bottom of the page they say this: "Due to currently unreleased rights, some of these broadcasts are geo-blocked for some territories. The Paris Opera is working on enlarging its broadcasting area." I also can't find a link to donate to POB, has anyone found one yet? If so could
  7. Streaming news from my dear neighbors to the north: The National Ballet of Canada begins its ‘20/21 Virtual season today, with “Expansive Dances” - films of three specially-made ballets...including one featuring my special favorite, NBC prima Heather Ogden, choreographed by her husband (also NBC principal) Guillaume Cote. Could it be that I last saw Ogden as Aurora at the Kennedy Center, just seven months ago? It seems like years ago! https://national.ballet.ca/Productions/Expansive-Dances?fbclid=IwAR143JH1qG3z-yRZP3N-c20b26WXFGe8te2xu7tUOx6XZlD33rPwn7Y66Es
  8. The Vienna State Opera has changed its details: "Starting with the 2020/2021 season, live performances of Wiener Staatsoper will be accessible free of charge at the Wiener Staatsoper website (play.wiener-staatsoper.at) and on updated apps for Apple, Android, and Amazon Fire TV devices."
  9. This is next week's contribution from New Adventures: https://mailchi.mp/new-adventures/october-2725030?e=4c93d522b6
  10. Don Q from Astana is on now. It looks as if it might be working in the UK: https://tengrinews.kz/tv/?fbclid=IwAR117BpR02XQkBC5umKoSsblJhc8SJlJp7bWulzeKnvnCGFgEQcV5PWj1S0
  11. If you are in need of a Sylvia fix, there is a free streaming of this production today 7.00 pm Vienna time. Available for 24 hours. However you need to register and set up a login and password. Then purchase a free ticket. A little bit fiddly but worth it. https://www.culturall.com/ticket/ists/performance_schedule.mc?view=month&year=2020&type=month_menu&process_mode=normal A big day with Mayerling as well. Might be a bit of a juggling act.
  12. "Too busy for the ballet? Let it come to you." This, from to day's Times: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/too-busy-for-the-ballet-let-it-come-to-you-kwxdv07nw?shareToken=fadc62986105c42dc2e9e614c5486905
  13. I found the Opera programme highly enjoyable. It was rather strange to see the orchestra using the whole stalls area and to see members of the chorus scattered around the theatre. Clever choices of repertoire that didn't require close contact between the soloists, some that is obviously difficult to achieve in ballet. There was a handsome set - I think.it may have been specially designed for the occasion, but someone on this forum may correct me on this. I most enjoyed the finale with Gerald Finley, orchestra and chorus in the Te Deum from Tosca. Amazing how an artist like Finley, can, in just
  14. BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET’S CINDERELLA SIR DAVID BINTLEY’S ENCHANTING FAIRYTALE BALLET TO BE STREAMED TO MARK THE END OF BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET’S HOME FROM HOME SERIES Birmingham’s Royal Ballet’s celebrated production of Cinderella will be broadcast in full on Birmingham Royal Ballet’s website and Facebook page to mark the end of its online Home from Home series. Its digital premiere will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 25 August and be available to watch for seven days thereafter via brb.org.uk/watch-cinderella Sir David Bintley’s enchanting fairytale bal
  15. I try to fast forward through the Sky Arts channels from time to time to set Sky+ for any upcoming ballet, but I inevitably miss out from time to time! I've just missed all but the last 2 minutes of 'Bolero'. I was just wondering if it might be a good idea to warn eachother of anything we know that is coming up?
  16. 1. Ensure that the app is available on your smart TV. 2. You need a Vimeo account (free). 3. Get the video up on Vimeo on your laptop using the password or URL you have been given. 4. When it is on your laptop if you hover your mouse over the picture you should see on the top right hand side a heart and underneath it a symbol that looks like a clock. 5. Click on that clock symbol (watch later). 6. Make sure you are logged into your account on your smart tv. 7. On the top right hand side you should be able to click o
  17. Just finished watching Katie Mitchell's marvellous take on Bartok's Duke Bluebard's Castle with the Bavarian State Opera, available as VOD until 10 Mar 2020. https://operlive.de/. If I remember correctly, streams provided by the Bavarian State Opera are accessible from the UK; I don't know about other countries. In Mitchell's production, Nina Stemme plays Anna Barlow, a detective who sets out to investigate the disappearance of three women who had worked as escorts. John Lundgren is Bluebard. I loved the introductory video, setting the scene, and very much filmed in the style of a thril
  18. Shall we select our “top five” ballet streams of the past five+ months? With last night’s closing program from Vail, an intense dance-stream season is winding down. I made my selections based only on “brand new” content that had never before been streamed or cinemacast before the COVID situation. In other words, either new works or, if already seen, danced by a company not before seen in a certain ballet. First, my top-15 (or so) shortlist, by city/company...all very generous with streaming: Buenos Aires, Teatro Colon Ballet: Coppelia in the beloved version
  19. It’s been almost three months since the full-ballet streamings began. Is anyone else beginning to experience Stream Fatigue? How many hours in each day do we have? Not that I’m not grateful. Just sayin’. 😏
  20. The Vail Dance Festival, as spearheaded by the extraordinary Damian Woetzel, has announced a Digital Festival. Details of such are as follows - We are thrilled to bring you the Vail Dance Festival: Digital Edition July 31-August 7, 2020! This special online series of events will feature unique performances from the past 10 years including debuts and revivals that have only been seen in Vail, a world premiere choreographed by Bobbi Jene Smith made in, and for, the virtual space, plus
  21. Sarasota Ballet have announced a true 'Heritage' programme for their upcoming Autumn digital season and for which you can buy tickets to watch. I have a feeling that many hereabouts may want to do so as it features some true Ashton gems that we don't oft get to see hereabouts nowadays. PURITY IN MOTION (Program 1) 23 – 25 October 2020 FSU Center for the Performing Arts George Balanchine's Donizetti Variations Ricardo Graziano's Amorosa Paul Taylor's Company B BEYOND EXPRESSION (Program 2) 20 – 21 November 2020 Sarasota Opera House Sir Frederick As
  22. Does anyone know when the tickets for the streamed Sarasota programme will go on sale or about how much they will cost? Sounds a great programme with some really different items in there.
  23. Great news. I was sent the following email by a good friend who subscribes to a dance series at the University of Minnesota, where ABT is set to tour its Don Q in April. One of the performances will be a livestream option for $25 a household. No details yet about casting or platform to be used (locked Youtube, Vimeo or other). The notification from the university: https://tickets.umn.edu/northrop/online/default.asp?doWork%3A%3AWScontent%3A%3AloadArticle=Load&BOparam%3A%3AWScontent%3A%3AloadArticle%3A%3Aarticle_id=9F1C3F79-885E-4CBF-B1E1-2C605531684C So will other dan
  24. The Allegro Youtube link is here. What a way to start the day. A defining reason for a 72 hour smile .... (Well, for me at any rate )
