Like many other arts organisations, the Royal Opera House is launching free on-line content from its archive of performances. This will be made available on demand and for free via the Royal Opera House’s Facebook and YouTube channels, with the following opera and ballet performances planned: 
  • Peter and the Wolf, The Royal Ballet, 2010 – 27 March 2020, 7pm GMT
  • Handel: Acis and Galatea, The Royal Opera, 2009 (Danielle de Niese, Charles Workman, Matthew Rose, Lauren Cuthbertson, Edward Watson, Steven MacRae, Eric Underwood, directed: Wayne McGregor, conductor: Christopher Hogwood) – 3 April 2020, 7pm BST
  • Mozart: Così fan tutte, The Royal Opera, 2010 (Charles Castronovo, Troy Cook, William Shimmell, Sally Matthews, Nino Surguladze, Helene Schneiderman, directed: Jonathan Miller & this performance revived by him, conductor: Julia Jones)– 10 April 2020, 7pm BST
  • The Metamorphosis, The Royal Ballet, 2013 – 17 April 2020, 7pm BST
The Royal Opera House is also rolling out a curated programme on Marquee TV, the arts streaming service, and it is possible to sign up for this with a 30-day free trial, and this will give you access not only to Royal Opera and Royal Ballet performances, but the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Bolshoi and many more.

More on-line content is planned by the Royal Opera House in the coming weeks, so watch this space.
