Ballet and Opera Shows to Stream for Free

Share this article

The UK Royal Opera House is offering a programme of free online shows as part of their #OurHousetoYourHouse initiative. These will include full-length productions, musical master classes, and behind the scenes content which will be broadcast for free on the company’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

The programme began last month with the streaming of The Royal Ballet’s 2013 production of The Metamorphosis. This was followed by The Royal Opera’s 2009 production of La traviata and, most recently, The Royal Ballet’s 2016 production of Anastasia.

The upcoming schedule will be:

  • Cendrillon, The Royal Opera, 2011 – 22 May, 7pm (London time)
  • The Cellist, The Royal Ballet, 2020 – 29 May, 7pm (London time)
  • Il trittico, The Royal Opera, 2012 – 5 June, 7pm (London time)
  • La Fille mal gardée, The Royal Ballet, 2005 – 12 June, 7pm (London time)
  • The Magic Flute, The Royal Opera, 2017 – 19 June, 7pm (London time)

One of the oldest and most important works in modern ballet history, La Fille mal gardée stars Carlos Acosta and Marianela Nuñez. The Cellist is inspired by the life of Jacqueline du Pré, who struggled with multiple sclerosis, and is choreographed by Cathy Marston.

The company is also collaborating with BBC Radio 3 and Marquee TV, broadcasting productions on the radio and through the streaming service.
