Król Roger to be live-streamed on 16 May 2015

Kasper Holten's new Royal Opera production of Szymanowski's epic will be streamed on YouTube and a new Digital Platform from Opera Europa.

Król Roger has never before been staged at Covent Garden and is a sumptuously scored meditation on identity and desire, telling the story of a mysterious stranger who arrives at the court of the titular king, preaching what the king's advisers deem as heresy. Roger is torn between remaining loyal to the Church, and following the stranger. Read more about the opera in our Opera Essentials quick guide.

The production is generously supported by The Monument Trust, The Danish Research Foundation, The Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music Programme, Susan and John Singer, The Taylor Family Foundation, Hamish and Sophie Forsyth, David Hancock, Michael Hartnall and the Connoisseurs’ Series.

    "Further details about the live stream will be announced in due course".
    Very tardy - now only a month to go.
    Is it only going to be available on the night or will it stay on stream for a period as e.g recent Guardian and Telegraph sponsored streams from Glyndebourne?
    People have plans to make!

      There will be a catch-up period - we will be able to confirm the length of this later in the month.

      Best wishes

      Ellen

    Have you confirmed the length of the catch-up period for viewing Krol Roger online after its live presentation today? I did not see a specific answer to the 16 April 2015 inquiry above.

      It will be on demand for six months.
