The Royal Ballet | Watch two new releases via Digital Theatre
Digital Theatre is consolidating its place as a global arts platform through a major expansion of Digital Theatre Collections with the release of two ballet productions from the Royal Opera House.
Recognising the performing arts as a great British export, Digital Theatre Collections brings the variety of content produced by some of the UK’s leading companies and producers to Digital Theatre‘s growing online audience.
Today’s release of two ballets from The Royal Ballet marks the start of a significant new partnership with the Royal Opera House, making their world-class productions available at the touch of a button for the very first time. Audiences will be able to watch online via Digital Theatre’s expanding range of platforms including apps for Samsung Smart TV, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, with the on-demand Digital Theatre Channel on the YouView TalkTalk Player and the Digital Theatre Desktop Player.
The Royal Opera House Collection will continue to grow, creating an online catalogue of ballet productions.
Speaking about the launch of the Royal Opera House Collection, Digital Theatre Co-Founder and CEO Robert Delamere said: “It is a privilege to make work of the calibre and talent presented every night at the Royal Opera House available to audiences around the world at the touch of a button. Through curating work of this quality, Digital Theatre is excited to establish itself as a global arts platform in which geography is no longer a barrier to experiencing the performing arts.”
Alastair Roberts, Managing Director, ROH Enterprises said “This is an exciting new partnership for us, making our productions available across the widest possible variety of digital platforms. It adds to the variety of ways in which people can see our work, outside of the auditorium itself, such as our BP Big Screens and ROH Live Cinema Season, and our work on TV and DVD, enabling audiences to access our performances wherever they are in the world and whenever they want.”
Launched and available to watch from today (Wednesday 11 September) the new Royal Opera House Collection includes two ballet productions filmed at the Royal Opera House.
