Free Live Streams for Opera and Ballet
The STAATSOPER.TV 2019/20 season presents six more free live streams after Alban Berg's Wozzeck last Saturday. New this season is an extended video-on-demand offer: Four streams can not only be experienced live, but also as a 30-day video-on-demand on the website of the Bayerische Staatsoper.
Three of those new productions are available in a new cooperation with BR-KLASSIK: Hans Abrahamsen's The Snow Queen, the Bartók double evening Judith and the world premiere of Marina Abramović's 7 Deaths of Maria Callas. For the first time these three streams will be accompanied by a live program: BR-KLASSIK host Maximilian Maier will meet interesting personalities before the performance and during intermissions to talk about the production, the history of its reception or about bizarre, remote aspects of the piece. In order to give as many people as possible access to these performances, the stream will be available - parallel to the traditional radio broadcast - on the website of the Bayerische Staatsoper as well as on BR-KLASSIK Concert. Furthermore, the streaming season will present the Triple Bill with choreographies by Alexei Ratmansky, David Dawson and Sharon Eyal of the Bayerisches Staatsballett in May as well as the festival production Castor et Pollux and Kirill Petrenko's interpretation of Giuseppe Verdi's Falstaff at the Munich Opera Festival. The live streams and the video-on-demand can be found here at the time indicated. A registration is not necessary.
