‘In this uncertain time, and as productions and events are postponed at the
Royal Opera House and around the world, we have created a schedule of free
broadcasts and live content that audiences can access for free anywhere,
anytime across the globe, bringing both ballet and opera to every home and
every device. This will include the following productions offered on demand
and for free via the ROH’s Facebook and YouTube channels:
Peter and the Wolf
, The Royal Ballet, 2010 – 27 March 2020, 7pm GMT
Acis and Galatea
, The Royal Opera, 2009 – 3 April 2020, 7pm BST
CosÏ fan tutte
, The Royal Opera, 2010 – 10 April 2020, 7pm BST
, The Royal Ballet, 2013 – 17 April 2020, 7pm BST
Today we begin the rollout of this free programme of curated content, and
invite our audiences to sign up for a free 30-day trial on Marquee TV, the
international multi-genre performing arts streaming service. In
collaboration with the Royal Opera House, Marquee TV will bring you the
very best of world-class performances on demand.
A range of recent opera and ballet productions are available including La
traviata and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with new titles being added
all the time.
Royal Opera House content is also available on radio, TV and online through
our ongoing partnership with the BBC. Mayerling, Pappano’s Greatest Arias
and Darcey Bussell: Looking for Margot are all available on BBC iPlayer and
can be watched at any time. Beethoven favourite Fidelio is also scheduled
to be broadcast on Radio 3 at 6.30pm on Saturday 28 March.
In the coming days and weeks, we will roll out more of our free programme
of broadcasts, so look out for updates and announcements via The Royal
Opera House’s social media channels and experience the best of the ROH from
your living room.
