      Hi Wendy,

      We're afraid we're not able to send out printed guides but all the information is available on our cinema pages:

    Disappointing that 3 out of 4 of the ballets have been screened before. Why no Onegin or some of the mixed programmes?

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 10 April 2014 at 10:02am

      Dear Philip

      Unfortunately we are unable to film Onegin due to rights restrictions - this is also the reason why the ballet has not been recorded for DVD. We have found that mixed programmes are a less attractive option for cinema audiences, although this does not mean that we won't try them again in future Seasons.

      Best wishes

      Ellen

  4. Good afternoon, Please could you tell me if you will be screening the Maryinsky Ballet summer season as I am desperate to see them? Kind regards LSH.

    • Chris Shipman (Content Producer (Social Media and News)) responded on 11 April 2014 at 4:25pm

      Hi Louise,

      We're afraid we're not relaying the Mariinsky performances. Details of relays from the company's St Petersburg theatre can be found at http://www.mariinskycinema.com/

      Thanks,

    Could you please inform in which cinema in Lisbon will your productions be screened?
    Thanks.

    Since l discovered your magnificent cinema viewings l am trying to attend all your screanings. I am a Yorkshire pensioner on a limited income wanting to see as many quality productions as l am able to .Correlating the information on your web site can prove confusing. A calender listing all performances and repeats would enable me to achieve my goal more readily.

    Here I was all excited to see "A Winters Tale" here tonight but it appears that the local theater is not broadcasting this production to us as previously announced here in Cary, NC, USA - we did enjoy an exquisite "Giselle" and "The Sleeping Beauty" (also glorious) recently. Can you explain why this broadcast became unavailable? Thank you for sharing your great productions of Opera & Ballet with the world. Sally

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 29 April 2014 at 2:55pm

      Dear Sally

      I am afraid that our US cinema distributor made the decision not to take The Winter's Tale as a relay. Sorry about the disappointment this has caused.

      Best wishes

    I Am very sad that my observations were thought too bad to publish. BUT if you can view the film on a big screen you might possibly agree.
    SO, even without a public viewing , please can the wardrobe department at least be advised to use fabric that does not show up every drop of perspiration of a very talented leading lady, or at least suggest that she uses one of the long lasting antiperspirants available.
    I still don't see why the two kings could not have been provide with trousers. The rest of the costumes were a delight to see, but the shiny tights do not do well on the large screen

    • Chris Shipman (Content Producer (Social Media and News)) responded on 1 May 2014 at 3:21pm

      Hi Diana,

      I've checked and your original comment was published, though it may have been delayed, such was the volume of comments coming through moderation.

      We very much welcome all comments, including the constructively critical so please forgive the error, the delay wasn't at all to do with the content, rather the volume and the nature of a manual process.

      Thanks,

    I am travelling to Los Angeles in June/July and I was wondering which movie theatres are showing the operas/ballets.

    Could we please have the full cast listedprinted , we all know who the main people are,
    This is screened at the end but everyone is walking out and its not possible to read it

    Please give us Lauren on La Fille!!

    I see that Manon Lescaut will be transmitted in Paris, but the other operas do not appear. Are not you transmitting I due Foscari, André Chénier and the rest thru the Paris cinema?

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 29 May 2014 at 2:20pm

      Dear Michele

      We will receive notification of screenings in France closer to the time as the ones you list are in the new Season. Dates will be added to the website as soon as we have them confirmed.

      Best wishes

    Is La Boheme, 10 June, available in cinema in Los Angeles or Ventura County movie houses or any where else in Southern California? Thank you Please respond by email.

    • Chris Shipman (Content Producer (Social Media and News)) responded on 3 June 2014 at 4:00pm

      Hi Larry,

      Unfortunately with the volume of comments we receive we're not able to email directly, but this relay is in June 2015 and therefore the details of cinemas in the US screening it haven't been confirmed.

      Do keep an eye on http://www.roh.org.uk/cinema for details closer to the time.

      Thanks,

    Great program but it looks as if it will not reach us in the third world (South Africa)?

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 28 May 2014 at 10:26am

      Dear Caro

      We have only screen in one cinema in South Africa: The Fugard Theatre in Cape Town.

      They have their own recorded programming as they do not take part in our live relays so listings inquiries are better sent directly to the venue. Here are their details:
      The Fugard Theatre
      Address: Caledon Street, Cnr of Harrington Street, District Six, Cape Town 8001, South Africa
      Phone: +27 21 461 4554

    I have been trying to find screenings from ROH in Southern California, but cannot find any even in the USA. Are there any cinemas here that will show these broadcasts?

    • Lottie Butler (Assistant Content Producer) responded on 24 June 2014 at 12:07pm

      Dear Sue,

      I'm afraid that the remaining broadcast of our 13/14 Cinema Season, Manon Lescaut, will not be screened live in the USA, but we are hoping it will be shown at a later date. Our US distributor is currently in discussions, and we will notify via social media as soon as we have an update.

      All the best,

      Lottie

    It seems that 'La clemenza di Tito' is not on your list, very disappointed to miss such a beautiful Mozart's opera with a very good cast , any reason for that?thanks all the best

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 27 June 2014 at 1:24pm

      Hi Marisa

      We're not actually producing La clemenza di Tito in 2014/15.

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 3 July 2014 at 9:44am

      Yes, my answer referred to that production. I'm afraid that it will not be broadcast in cinemas.

    Will you be screening Winter's Tale this year in Cinemas since it was cancelled last season?

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 15 July 2014 at 9:46am

      Hi Michele

      Do you mean in US cinemas? It went ahead in most territories.

      There are currently only a couple of screenings coming up for The Winter's Tale (France and Australia), but I would expect that more will be added:

      Yes, in US cinemas. I live in Michigan and it was not shown here or nearby in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The websites said maybe next season. I wish I could see this.

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 15 July 2014 at 5:49pm

      Do keep an eye on the website - we'll add details of screenings for 2014/15 as and when they are confirmed.

    Is Kitchener really the only place near Toronto relaying performances?
    btw the Met system works really well: one date for booking for the entire season for supporters, a few days later for the general public.
