Guyz and Guyzerellas, do I have a special treat for you:
Today, 18:00 h (6:00 p.m.) CET the worldfamous Bolshoi Theatre will stream Verdi’s Il Corsaro on YouTube. No, it’s not really a livestream but only available for a very short time. Reason for doing it is to give the audiences the feeling of actually being in the opera house. It’s, like, blink and you missed it. 😉
I guess in these times of lockdown, and opera and ballet stupidly not considered an essential service, it’s nice of the Russians to take care of our cultural nourishment.
Ok, it’s already quarter to 16:00, so in kinda 2 hours Bolshoi will lift the curtains for The Corsair. Time to slip on
my finest gown and wear a decent make-up a clean tank top and sanitize my hands. 😉
A total of six pre-recorded shows will be streamed through 10 April. The surprise ‘online spring season’ will open with the timeless ballet Swan Lake, followed by the operas The Tsar’s Bride and Boris Godunov, and the ballets Sleeping Beauty, Marco Spada and The Nutcracker.
The shows will be available to users from around the world live on Bolshoi’s official YouTube channel and for 24 hours afterwards.
Each stream will start at 19:00 Moscow time (GMT+3). Subscribe to Bolshoi’s channel to get notifications.
