  4. New work - some filmed pre lockdown, some during - from Scottish Ballet, as part of the Edinburgh International Festival digital offerings. A series of short films, in total about half an hour.

  8. Dancers of the Royal Ballet in a new Wheeldon piece. Some nifty editing
  9. Dutch National Ballet have a David Dawson program this week from 13 to 20th June https://www.operaballet.nl/en/online/ballet/streaming#dawson
  10. It's interesting to see just how popular some of the free streams are. The National Theatre Live production of A Streetcar named Desire with Gillian Andersen is currently showing on YouTube as having 835 thousand views. That's a massive audience. It's not easy to tell just how many views there are of some of the productions that are only available for a couple of days. But it does make you think that if there is that appetite out there then maybe some creative minds can come up with new and better models for streaming live performance to an audience prepared to pay.
  11. From the UK: The ROH offerings are up for quite a while - The Winters Tale (Wheeldon) is up until 1 May with the original first cast from 2014 https://www.roh.org.uk/tickets-and-events/the-winters-tale-stream-details This week's ENB stream is Fantastic Beings by Aszure Barton https://www.ballet.org.uk/blog-detail/fantastic-beings-aszure-barton/ Coming soon from 15th May for a week from Sadlers Wells is Cloud Gate Dance Theatre https://www.sadlerswells.com/whats-on/2020/digital-stage-cloud-gate-dance-theatre-of-taiwan-moon-water/ National Theatre live has 4 n

  14. Not dance, I know, but I thought you might be interested in more free streamed performances coming up from the National Theatre in London. From today it's Twelfth Night, and in the next two weeks on their You Tube Channel (from 7pm on Thurs for a week) "Frankenstein - Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle directs Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, alternating the roles of Frankenstein and his creation. Antony & Cleopatra - the acclaimed, sold-out production with Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo." I saw both of these live in the theatre and enjoyed them very much.
  15. English National Ballet are streaming Broken Wings, by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa based on the life of Frida Kahlo, featuring Tamara Rojo and Irek Mukhamedov as Frida and her husband. Available for 48 hours from 7pm British Standard time on Wed 22 April. Filmed in 2016. You tube link will be here (as below) on the day. The corps are all dancing Fridas - versions of her self portraits. The following Weds will be the company in Akram Khan's Dust.
