Last Friday, March 23rd, The Royal Ballet launched a first for them – Royal Ballet Live; a live streaming day showing daily class, rehearsals, interviews and an Insight Evening, with their media partner The Guardian. Frederick Ashton's passionate ballet, set to Liszt’s tempestuous Piano Sonata, recalls the tragic love affair between the courtesan Marguerite, and her lover Armand. The masterful 19th-century choreography of Marius Petipa is combined with sections created for The Royal Ballet by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon. A unique opportunity to see or relive a number of highlights for the first time. THE ROYAL BALLET: THE NUTCRACKER STREAM Tuesday 22 December 7pm (BST), priced at £16 and available to view for 30 days on demand. < Keep on dancing Programme Over the past weeks we streamed some of the most beautiful performances that have been shown on our stage in recent years. This latest gala from the Royal Ballet had been planned to be performed in front of a live and appreciative audience, drinking in their first in-person, post lockdown performance. If you're new to ballet and opera or have loved them all your life, we have something for you. Feel something new at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Available to watch or share for £3. Over the years there have been many productions, but the Royal Ballet's possession of the Sergeyev notes, plus the company history with this ballet, makes every video release noteworthy. Royal Ballet Live | Highlights. Recorded live as part of the Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season 2019/20 with encore screenings broadcast online during the #OurHousetoYourHouse programme. London's Royal Opera House is streaming on its Facebook page and YouTube channel for its #OurHouseToYourHouse initiative, bringing ballet and opera to the masses every Friday for a month. The trailer for Royal Ballet Live asked the question, “have you ever wondered what it takes to become a top ballet dancer ?” The 2006 production was an attempt to return to the 1946 Oliver Messel production that had brought the company so much acclaim. The Royal Ballet’s mixed bill Within the Golden Hour is like a tonic for the soul. Within the Golden Hour is streaming on demand until 13 December; tickets £10. Visit roh.org.uk for more.
