I hope it is more efficiently transmitted than it was last year.

I think this is being streamed on YouTube as well this year - which is great given the Facebook issues.

Not sure about that - it just mentions “highlights,” which is what it has done in previous years in relation to YouTube.

it seems to be in half term so those who work with children can watch, maybe a bit harder for parents though.

Not everywhere. Half term is the following week for many.

 

I hope that works for you

Exciting, we are at RBS Covent Garden that day for the audition insight session travelling down from Manchester. Would be amazing to catch something of world ballet day while we are there. We aren't in London for long but fingers crossed :)

Apologies if I'm being dim, but how will the RB and the RAD be on together from 1430-1500?

RAD section will probably be classed as part of the RB schedule, or something like that

I think the UK companies' sections will run concurrently with the 'main' WBD feed. I expect that (unfortunately) only RB will be in the main stream. So RAD and RB will overlap and viewers will need to choose.

Will this be available for people to view after the day itself? I have to work during the day so it would be nice to have the opportunity to watch at a later date.

They always leave it up in full for a few days after, then post selected highlights permanently.

There were parallel streams last year, in addition to subsections within the main host sections.  I can recommend running multiple devices simultaneously ... if your WiFi can cope... to see the dancers / rehearsals you prefer.  Personally I’ve found the RB school section too bland and usually switch over at that point.

I loved the coaching of some RB students by Belinda Hatley a couple of years back....and then very gratifying to see some of them in this years RBS show and the progress they have made since back then. Definitely some stars in the making 🌟🌟🌟

23.10.2019.  Bolshoi Ballet will gather all its friends and admirers in front of the screen at 9 pm Moscow local time and will host 4 hours talk show session. Australian Ballet, due to time zones difference – will start first (4 pm – 8 pm, Moscow time), whereas The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden, will end up the broadcast (1 pm – 5 pm, Moscow time).

Moscow is 2 hours ahead of London.
