Watch Theatre Online or at Home – Musicals, Plays, Drama, Opera, Ballet

Six Cast RecordingIn view of the Coronavirus now hitting the arts in the UK, with theatres and venues closing for the foreseeable future, we thought it might be an opportunity to share some digital resources.

Theatre isn’t only about performances on a stage, it is about embracing the body and soul – a means to escape from the world we live in, to a land of make-believe. Being in an audience watching a production and feeling the hairs go up on the back of your neck is a magical moment and many people will miss their regular dose.

While the theatres and venues are dark, maybe the following links will enable some of you to escape for a moment or two, either online with your mobile, tablet, laptop or pc – or download to watch on your tv.

To all involved in the world of make-believe – theatre and the performing arts – the land will be a darker place without you, but this time will pass and a new magical world will blossom at some future date.

Very best wishes,

The story of theatre
The V&A’s Theatre and Performance collections chart the fascinating history of theatre in Britain from the middle ages to today. From early dramatic forms, such as mystery plays and court masques, to the alternative and ‘in yer face’ drama of the late 20th century, via the patriotic wartime entertainment of the 1940s, and the foundation of institutions such as the Arts Council and the National Theatre.

  1. My pals & are avid theatre-goers. We have tickets booked months ahead. Obvs, no one know how long this virus will ravage the country (the world). The threat to theatre is very great: actors, everyone involved in creating the magic. Thank you for offering this as an ‘amuse bouche’. We would subscribe to a broader scheme to get Our‘fix’ but more broadly, help to ensure the future of theatre.
