We are now presenting a season of live broadcasts from The National Theatre, NT Live associated theatres, The Royal Opera House (opera and Ballet), Glynebourne and other venues. Please note that live events are received via satellite and may be susceptible to certain technical issues and atmospheric conditions beyond our control. These are quite rare and we do our best to minimise their impact on the performance.
NTLive present a live broadcast of
Cyrano De Bergerac
Thursday 20th February 2020
Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?
The ROH present a live broadcast of
The Cellist / Dances at A Gathering
Tuesday 25th February 2020
Choreographer Cathy Marston is previously an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and much in demand internationally. The inspiration for her first work for The Royal Ballet Main Stage is the momentous life and career of the cellist Jacqueline du Pré.
Jerome Robbins’ elegant and elegiac classic forms the second part of the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.
