While theatres remain closed in and around the Spalding area, these are the shows and concerts you can continue to enjoy online
With many indoor theatre venues still unable to stage events, the team at the South Holland Centre in Spalding are continuing to suggest shows that you can enjoy online.
Until 7pm tonight (Thursday) the National Theatre Home is broadcasting Terence Rattigan’s ‘masterpiece’, The Deep Blue Sea. It is said to contain ‘one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama’, played by Helen McCrory.
Then, from today until July 23, you can see Lucian Msamati play Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s play, Amadeus. It has a live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.
The Royal Albert Home has been broadcasting a season of free events to stream at home, including Katherine Jenkins, the VE Day 75 concert, Richard Thompson, Scouting for Girls and The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess. All previously launched concerts can be viewed later. Just click on the titles that you want to watch to be directed to the content on YouTube.
Also suggested by the Centre is the Royal Opera House Ballet and Opera – a series of ballet and opera performances recorded live from the Royal Opera House
The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has free online concerts from its archives to watch via its website at: www.rsno.org.uk
Pentabus Theatre Company has recorded theatre productions to watch.
Curve Theatre: The Show Must Go Online is a selection of digital content including archive recordings, in-depth conversations with leading theatre-makers, activities and educational resources for children.
At Opera Vision you can view European operatic productions free and on-demand. On Vimeo, watch ‘Only The Brave’, a musical story of hope, bravery and togetherness. It is based on true events, telling the story of a group of brave soldiers embarking on a dangerous mission that holds the key to the success of the D-Day Landing.
