Just had this in from the Royal Opera House: "We have some exciting news we are delighted to share with you. Working with all our European opera partners we are thrilled to announce a brand new online platform entirely dedicated to streaming live opera for free. The Opera Platform will be available in three languages – English, French and German – and will offer free content, rich in information: full opera performances and extracts; synopses and background material; artist interviews and behind-the scenes documentaries. The Opera Platform is launched with the live transmission from Madrid’s Teatro Real of La traviata tonight, 8 May at 7pm (BST) followed by The Royal Opera’s five starKról Roger streamed live from Covent Garden on Saturday 16 May at 7pm (BST). About Król Roger Saturday 16 May, 7pm Kasper Holten and Antonio Pappano work together on a production for the first time – the Royal Opera premiere of Szymanowski’s complex and thrilling Król Roger, one of the greatest early 20th-century operas. The opera follows King Roger as he struggles to reconcile his intellect and his desires, and is provoked by the hedonistic teachings of a mysterious Shepherd to undergo a journey of self-discovery. Make sure you don’t miss Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecień in the title role as the conflicted King Roger of Sicily, performing in his native tongue. This is a role that could almost have been written to highlight his rich, dark, dramatic baritone, and one that he has sung to great acclaim worldwide. 'a major triumph' – The Daily Telegraph ***** To watch opera for free on The Opera Platform and find out what else is coming up visit www.theoperaplatform.eu Live Content from the Royal Opera House The Opera Platform is a fantastic new addition to the many ways Royal Opera House audiences can access opera and ballet without attending a performance at Covent Garden.
