Digital Theatre (DT) is the world's leading digital platform for the arts and it has launched an online subscription platform where you can watch the best of theatre, ballet, opera and classical concerts streamed live to your own screen. Performances can be streamed anytime, anywhere, to any device.
Subscribers can have access to over 65 productions, the most of which are exclusive
to Digital Theatre. Now is the perfect time to watch The Nutcracker which is available now. Fancy watching Simon Russell Beale in The Tempest? Paapa Essiedu in Hamlet and Antony Sher in King Lear, all from the Royal Shakespeare Company? How about seeing Zoë Wanamaker and David Suchet in All My Sons; Richard Armitage in The Crucible; David Tennant and Catherine Tate in Much Ado About Nothing? There are also operas and ballets from the Royal Opera House and the English National Ballet; and concerts conducted by Sir Simon Rattle and starring the London Symphony Orchestra. Maybe the kids will fancy Hansel and Gretel over the festive season.
Founder and acclaimed Director and Producer of Digital Theatre, Robert Delamere, commented,
“Britain’s performing arts are world-renowned for their outstanding breadth, qualityand diversity. This was the inspiration behind the launch of the world’s first, online, performing arts platform. Digital Theatre collaborates with world-class producing houses to capture and curate their shows and stream them to the consumer in broadcast
quality. Up close and personal, for a best-seat-in-the-house viewing experience.”
Justin Cooke, Chairman of Digital Theatre, said, “Our mission is to make the
performing arts accessible to all, irrespective of social, economic or geographic
circumstances. The power of digital is providing people, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, with access to fantastic performances, at a fraction of the cost of a typical ticket. We’re broadening access to these phenomenal productions, and
preserving their impact for years to come. We aim to bring the drama and emotion of
each live performance to the comfort of your home, and for me, this isn’t a replacement
for live theatre – it’s a new art form altogether.”
Digital Theatre will continue to add high-profile shows to its platform, including six new DT captures (two of which are in post-production), and a further 50+ curated productions from some of the world’s leading producers, all scheduled for release over the next six months.
Digital Theatre also has an educational arm called Digital Theatre+ which provides
more than 1,150 schools, colleges and universities, and three million students, in 65
countries, with access to 795 hours of curriculum-linked, audio-visual content, and
8,150 pages of bespoke written resources. Digital Theatre+ was the recent winner of the Best Online/Live Streaming Platform Award at the Theatre and Technology Awards 2017.
Subscribers can get unlimited access to all Digital Theatre’s current and future productions for £9.99 per month. For non-subscribers, each production is available to rent online £7.99 for 48 hours.
