CANCELLED!

Yes, all public performances are currently cancelled or postponed.

Meanwhile…

The New York Metropolitan Opera is streaming FREE encore presentations from March 16 until the crisis ends.

During this extraordinary and difficult time, the Met hopes to brighten the lives of our audience members even while our stage is dark. Every day for the duration of the Met’s closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, a different encore presentation from the company’s Live in HD series will be made available for free streaming on the Met website, with each performance available for a period of 20 hours, from 7:30 p.m. EDT until 3:30 p.m. the following day. The schedule will include outstanding complete performances from the past 14 years of cinema transmissions, starring all of opera’s greatest singers.

The performances are being made available through the Met Opera on Demand streaming service, and are also accessible through Met Opera on Demand apps on all of your favorite devices.

The Berlin Philharmonic is offering access to their “Digital Concert Hall” for 30 days – and cancellation will not be required at the end of that time! On offer are over 600 orchestral concerts from the Berliner Philharmoniker in the Digital Concert Hall from more than ten years, including 15 concerts with the new chief conductor Kirill Petrenko.

Log on to the Digital Concert Hall ticket page with the code BERLINPHIL and use the Digital Concert Hall free of charge for 30 days. Cancellation is not required. The latest date for redeeming the code is Tuesday, 31 March 2020. If you are not yet a user of the Digital Concert Hall, registration – without obligation – is required. If you already have a ticket or subscription to the Digital Concert Hall, the duration will be extended accordingly.

“We hope that through this initiative we can give pleasure to as many people as possible with our music. We already miss our public very much and hope that in this way we can remain in contact with our audience at least virtually,” says Olaf Maninger, principal cellist and chair of the orchestra’s media board.

Every day, more and more musicians are stepping up to livestream concerts from their homes during this time of social distancing and self-quarantine. Some are happening on Instagram, some on Facebook, in addition to other sites and platforms. We’ll try to post some of that concert information here and on the main blog page.
