Disney+ is presumably paid for somehow?  Otherwise, I'd be interested to see it.

Yes, it's a streaming service and costs £5.99 per month.  If you can access it and there is not a contract period I suppose that is not too bad a price to pay for one month to watch it.

San Francisco Ballet’s complete Jan 2020 Opening Night “Spellbound Gala” premieres today at 1pm est (6pm London) and stays up for just a few hours...not even a whole day. It begins & ends with Balanchine and includes a lot of new choreography in between...with a Corsaire pdd and Grand Pas Classique thrown in for good measure!

Thanks so for letting us know about Spellbound, Jeannette.  If you hadn't I would have missed it ... and it really made my day.  So totally refreshing ... Such a glorious mix of styles and music ... It swept along ... with me in total thrall to those stunning dancers' enchantment ... much as they had me transfixed a year ago at the Wells.  So pleased to see they had a capacity audience at their home base.  So wished they could have had the same here  There is no question but that they totally deserved it.

Indeed, a magnificent gala from San Francisco! Love all dancers but...I just can’t get enough of that Yuan-Yuan Tan...in the special intermission piece by Possokhov, then The Bells on stage...dancing with Vitor Luiz ar his farewell (though not announced here).  Was it really Yuan-Yuan’s 25th anniversary with the company? She must have started at age 5!

  I hadn’t seen this posted anywhere else...

Composer Oliver Davis’ Facebook announces tonight’s stream of his & choreographer Kit Holder’s ballet Stems, recorded in 2019 at the Linbury Studio of the ROH with four BRB dancers. Q&A will follow.

This is all that I know:

Between this, the ENB Sylphide and the Berlin Staatsballett concert, it’ll be a busy Wednesday. Who said that “Hump Days” are boring?

 Correction- Staatsballett event is on Friday, not today. The other two are today (ENB Sylphide and BRB Stems).

Not a livestream as such but I noticed this version of Don Q on YouTube and wondered if I was allowed to share it. I've only skimmed it so I can't really comment on the quality of the dancing or choreography but it was the vibrant colours and well lit photography that initially attracted me. Also I've never heard of the Company,  Stara Zagora State Opera. Apparently it's Bulgarian.
