All about STAATSOPER.TV

In 2018/19 STAATSOPER.TV at the Bayerische Staatsoper, already in its seventh season, continues to make selected performances freely available online via live-streams. General Music Director Kirill Petrenko will open the season with a new production of Giuseppe Verdi’s Otello starring Jonas Kaufmann in the title role and Anja Harteros as Desdemona. The second new production conducted by the General Music Director is also on the programme: Richard Strauss’ Salome. This performance will be also broadcasted as part of Opera for all to the big screen at Max-Joseph-Platz.
Until the 2019 Opera Festival, you can watch all new productions at the Nationaltheater on PCs, tablets or Smart-TVs, free, in their full length and in high quality sound and image. This includes George Balanchine’s Jewels with the soloists from the Bayerischen Staatsballett ensemble.

Four to six cameras in the auditorium will broadcast the performances throughout the world at www.staatsoper.de/tv. Up to 40 microphones in the orchestra pit and on stage provide first-class sound quality. From this season onward, the video images will be produced in high definition (Full HD). Another innovation is the provision of streams in HD resolution with increased bandwidth, offering even better picture quality. All the streams (without subtitles, German or English subtitles) are offered in three different transmission qualities (Low, High, HD). Viewers can choose freely between these three qualities and adapt the transmission to their own individual internet connection. General Manager Nikolaus Bachler (or Ballet Director Igor Zelensky for the ballet performances) will provide an introduction to the work before every live stream, and in the intervals, the Bayerische Staatsoper will offer a glimpse into the theatre's backstage areas.
