Live Streaming

Opera, theatre and ballet is streamed live to our big screen from the most prestigious arts venues at home and abroad. This makes it possible to watch productions from the English National Opera, Royal Opera House, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Bolshoi Ballet and The Royal Ballet here in Cumbria, at the same time they are being performed. As well as brilliant performance, we also show art as part of the Exhibition on Screen and Discover Arts programmes. Tickets range from £10 – £15 unless specified.

ENCORE! ENCORE! If you aren’t able to attend a live screening, we often screen specially recorded daytime encores a few days after the live event.

Occasionally, we also show RECORDED BROADCASTS which are slightly older, but much loved productions that we’ve been given another chance to screen.

ROYAL OPERA HOUSE – MADAMA BUTTERFLY (LIVE)

Muchloved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western…

The Royal Ballet – Jewels (Live)

George Balanchine’s timeless evocation of the brilliance and sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds. George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Faure provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in…
