Entertainment Suggestions

This guide is meant to provide entertainment suggestions during COVID-19.

Streaming Theater/Theatre and Opera, with a bit of Dance Mixed In (Live and On Demand)

Almost all productions are offered on a limited basis.  Offerings change and sites are updated frequently.  Be sure to check dates as well as times if you find something you would like to watch.  BroadwayHD is a seven-day free trial; none of the others list pay-per-view or subscription charges although a few will ask for donations. Some scrolling is required on a few sites.

All-Arts: This hub for arts news includes performances for viewing at home. You have to work for your entertainment—be forewarned that scrolling is involved!—but recent offerings have included James Earl Jones and Raúl Julia in King Lear; a full performance of Philip Glass’s opera about Walt Disney, The Perfect American; Peter Brook’s ancient-modern classic The Mahabharata; and Balanchine’s ballet Jewels at St. Petersburg’s famed Mariinsky Theatre.

Finally, here are Juilliard School students, faculty, alumni and some famous faces collaborating on a choreographed virtual performance of “Bolero.” It’s a sign of the times that we are willing to watch beautiful ballet performed with a broom from a tiny kitchen. And on the topic of Bolero, here’s something many may remember: Torvill and Dean reimagining ice dancing at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics. I rate both a solid “10.”
