You may have noticed we've set up a calendar feature where members can add any relevant showings (scroll down on smartphones, I think - haven't tried it on a tablet yet).  If a streaming has specific dates, do try entering it.  More details here:

The Polish National Ballet are showing Sleeping Beauty with ex RB dancer now principal Dawid Trzensimiech on 13/18/25 April

La Scala Milan have ballets and operas being released daily until 21/4/20 on demand for 30 days each via Raiplay.it  not least SB with Semionova and DonQ with Osipova/Sarafanov

The releases are mostly of operas as well calendar here (in italian) http://www.teatroallascala.org/it/calendario-trasmissioni-rai.html

It helps to follow @raicultura and @teatroallascala on Twitter to get notifications of releases - They are using Raiplay.it as the platform which I can see on computer but I am getting a casting device so I can watch on TV.

 

Sleeping Beauty - released 27/3

Le Corsaire release date 21/4 but it is already on unless it's a different cast/show

As regards PARIS OPERA BALLET I can't see anything it say geo-blocked and they said on Twitter we should be able to view but I can't.  I really wanted to see the Robbins bill next week 😞  If anyone know how to view POB offerings please let me know!

You don't - it's also on YouTube (went up about 15 minutes ago) but presumably it will disappear quite quickly:

Unfortunately the Royal New Zealand Ballet offerings only seem to be available live at the times they stream - all of which are in the middle of the night if you live in Europe. It's a shame, I was really looking forward to Midsummer Night's Dream, but couldn't stay awake till 2am. I am very thankful though for all the other incredible things I've been able to watch from around the world 🙂

Another source with a long list of links to streaming of both ballet and opera performances

https://www.fedora-platform.com/news/experience-opera-and-ballet-online/123

 

Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo in La Belle, Maillot's version of The Sleeping Beauty, available until 11 am UK time on 13 Apr. I've been able to access the video from here so fingers crossed it'll work from other countries, too.

Ballet am Rhein in Martin Schlaepfer's Swan Lake, available until 28th April. I don't know whether this comes with a geo block though.

https://www.operamrhein.de/en_EN/home?p=1 (scroll down)

I got through Nureyev's version with POB by doing a few things on the side the other day. Schlaepfer's version, on the other hand, had me crying buckets at the end.

On the website, there is also a Paris Opera Ballet Giselle.  It's geoblocked for the UK, but I mention it in case people elsewhere can access it.

I'm pretty sure it is geoblocked everywhere outside France.

POB confirmed Giselle was geoblocked for copyright reasons.  

 

I must say that the Polish National Ballet Sleeping Beauty I watched yesterday was beautifil I really enjoyed it and especially seeing Dawid Trzesensimiech (ex Royal ballet) as Prince Desire.  It was really lovely beautiful set and costumes (if a little orangey in aura at times!) It was esepcailly good that the Price and carabosse were dressed in silvery grey so it was easy to see them when the lights went down.  It will air again on 18 and 25 April at 5pm UK time.  Chinara Alizade was Aurora but I missed that she did not put her hands above her head when doing the Rose Adagio 😞

just watched the POB Jerome Robbins programme, with slight difficulty - I think my set up, Internet on st tv dislikes French Tv as the picture kept breaking up, stopping, and similar problems. have had no trouble with anything else. However, it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the programme. The only ballet I had seen was Faune so it was great to see works that were new to me. Fancy Free was totally enjoyable and I found myself mentally casting it for the Royal. I think when The Age of Anxiety was last performed at the ROH someone on the forum suggested that Fancy Free would have been a better bet - I agree.  Wasn't so keen on the Glass - probably because I don't enjoy his music, but the dancing certainly made up for it. Does anyone know if this is a fairly recent performance?
