    As a big fan of Royal Ballet, I am sooo much disappointed that Live Cinema is not available at all in Japan this year. Why? What is the problem? Tickets were often sold out in Tokyo last year and before. As the company will tour to Japan this summer, please please find a way to make it available here.

    • Sarah Walsh (Cinema Account Coordinator) responded on 12 May 2016 at 5:33pm

      Dear Naho,

      We intend to screen our Live Cinema season in Japan in 16/17 but have not confirmed which cinemas will be taking part yet. Please keep an eye on our website for the most up to date information.

      Best wishes,

      Sarah

    Me and my friends really waned to watch the Royal Ballet's performance but unfortunately we live in Hong Kong and might not be able to travel to London because its too far also if we can travel it will be in July or August (summer holiday) which there is no repertoire so please make it available in the Hong Kong cinemas

    For the past two years I have been attending opera performances at The Landmark cinema in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I had already marked in my calendar June 29th to see Werther however when I tried to book my ticket online I was told that the opera series had been discontinued at that particular cinema. Can you please advise if it will be shown at another venue as well as the date and time. Thank you. Michael

    • Sarah Walsh (Cinema Account Coordinator) responded on 10 June 2016 at 11:00am

      Dear Michael,

      I'm sorry to hear this and for the way this information was communicated to you. Unfortunately the nearest screening of Werther to you now is in Nelson so is some distance away . In good news though, we are currently working on our Canadian distribution for our upcoming season so please do keep an eye on our website for updates as hopefully there will be a local cinema for you to attend.

      Kind regards,

      Sarah

    Who can we ask for being a part of this big and lovely project?

    I'm very happy of this new season 2016-2017 and I hope that the Vincennes Cinéma near Paris in France will continue to offer us these beautiful performances, but I'm always deasappointed by the fact that you never diffuse the Royal Ballet School performance which permet to see the futur artists.

    Why is there not broadcast of "Meistersinger" planned? Really a pity! Or will there be a DVD?

    • Emma Nevell responded on 24 August 2016 at 4:21pm

      Hi Petra,

      It is a pity that we aren't able to broadcast all our productions, but unfortunately it just isn't possible! In addition, as we won't be filming Meistersinger, there will not be a DVD release. However there are plans in the works for a BBC Radio live relay for one of the performances, so do keep an eye out for that!

  26. William Waung responded on 4 September 2016 at 3:18am Reply

    A cinema in Hong Kong is urgently required. The new Norma is what we would like to see. It does not have to be a live Cinema screening. It does not have to be in a commercial cinema. British Council will be a good venue. Can you not follow the long established example of Met. All the major Met productions are shown in 3 or 4 Hong Kong venues on different days spreading over a period of some 3 months. From the correspondence, it is obvious that ROH needs to put its act together on world wide cinema screening.

  33. We are so lucky to have ROH Live - but I get quite annoyed by the camera choices and close up views. When at an actual opera, one can choose which part of the stage or which character to look at. In the film, quite often there is a duet (or other ensemble singing) where the camera focuses on one character only - when all the characters are reacting to each other - so it is important to be able to see them all. I object that I cannot choose where to look - there are too many close ups.

    • Petunia responded on 19 October 2016 at 4:18pm

      I do so agree with you! I have often thought that all they need to do is plonk one camera in the front row of the circle and just let it roll. However I suspect that ultimately the point of the filming is to make and sell DVDs for the small screen, and that is a whole different business.

  34. Sandra responded on 29 September 2016 at 4:50pm Reply

    I love the live streamings! My local cinema in Woking does have trouble with the student discount tickets on the day. They are listed as independent cinema, but it's always a struggle to convince them. Last year I even missed Viscera because I had to go home to print off proof. Is there something that can be done?
    Thank you!

    I'm sorry to see that the cinema that carried the ROH cinema productions previously in New Westminster BC has gone over to the Dark Side. I did enjoy Andrea Chenier, ballet and other offerings. In all of Canada, there are only a few cinemas carrying ROH. I wonder whether you've thought of offering a service similar to Met on Demand for Roku? At least, that way, we would be able to watch ROH productions at home for a monthly fee. Warmest regards, David.

    • Emma Nevell responded on 20 October 2016 at 9:51am

      Hi David,

      Thank you for taking the time to get in touch with us - I'm sorry that there aren’t any convenient screenings near you at the moment. Our new international partners are in conversations with a number of cinemas in Canada and the US, so if we’re adding any new screenings we’ll update them to this page: http://www.roh.org.uk/cinemas.
      We currently offer a number of our productions live (and for free!) on YouTube – the latest of which will be announced very soon. While there are no plans to launch an ‘on demand’ service right away, we are currently exploring options around what this could look like. Any new product launches will be announced on social media and on the website, so do watch this space.

      Very best wishes,
      Emma

    Saw Cosi Fan Tutte at Cineworld, Basildon last Monday. Performance excellent. Not sure about the production – might have been better simply in modern dress without the distractions.

    However, every wide angle shot showing the whole stage was out of focus, although close ups were fine. Not the visual standard to which I have become used.

    For the third year running, the ROH link to "where to see us live" is incomplete. No Anastasia in Provence except in three cinemas in Marseille. Not so. The Rivoli in Carpentras will be showing the whole ROH Live package. Same place, same directions as in the past two years. "Même topo" as they say in French. Avignon and Apt appear to have stuck with the Bolshoi. I also saw on http://www.exittolive.com/events/FR/Montpellier/2016-10-16/FR/ that cinemas in Montpellier are showing the Met, the Bolshoi and have just shown the ROH's Cosi. So that city may worth checking out.

    Saw Norma yesterday, it was a delayed broadcast. When I did a town search for Parthenay, France it came up as no results, this is a shame as most of the season is being shown. Yesterday a smallish but enthusiastic audience attended but there was room for lots more. I feel that more needs be done to advertise the broadcasts, it is a pity to waste such a splendid opportunity. Local advertising took place but I think people would travel a long way if they knew it was on.

      Hi Kate,

      Thank you for letting us know about the cinema in Parthenay not appearing on our website. We are keen to make sure all information is clearly visible and that cinemas are easy to find, so this is particularly helpful. Could you please email the details of the cinema you attended, including name and address, to cinema@roh.org.uk so we can look into why that cinema isn't showing?

      Many thanks,

    Recently moved to Chicago from the UK. Very disappointed that I cannot find any screenings in the area. Landmark/Renaissance showed last season, but that seems to have stopped. Any chance of them being shown somewhere? In a city like Chicago, surely there would be a great deal of interest.
    Thank you.

      Hi Gillian,

      Thank you for taking the time to get in touch. Our international partner has been in talks with several US cinemas, and we are hoping to announce shortly the new screening dates for our content in the US - including in Chicago. I believe the Landmark Renaissance cinema in Chicago will again be taking ROH productions, but please keep an eye on our website, as all updates will appear there: http://www.roh.org.uk/cinemas

    On the live cinema season leaflet I picked up when seeing Anastasia (outstanding, by the way) it says encore of the Nutcracker on Sunday 11 Dec at 2pm. However I can see no booking times at any of the three cinemas in my area that show live performances. Is it happening?

    • Emma Nevell responded on 11 November 2016 at 11:35am

      Dear Francis,

      Thank you for getting in touch - I can confirm that the encore screening of The Nutcracker is going ahead, but not every cinema is screening it on that date. Unfortunately it may be the case that your nearest cinemas are only screening on 8th December, but please check our website: http://www.roh.org.uk/cinemas nearer to the time, as if anything changes we will update the information there.

    Hi Emma
    Thank you for your response. Yes the landmark cinema in Highland Park is showing them on Monday nights at 7pm, rather than Sunday mornings . So for anybody working in the city, you would never get there in time with the rush hour traffic. It's a pity there isn't another venue in the downtown area that will show them.

    • Emma Nevell responded on 14 November 2016 at 12:18pm

    I think that ROH Live is a great idea. But when I get tickets for none of the Fleming Rosenkavaliers and discover that it simply isn't being relayed by ROH Live, I wonder whether you've missed the point. I want to give you some of my money but you won't let me! Of course, it's a joint production with the Met and the 2017 Met Opera Live Schedule includes Renee Fleming in Rosenkavalier.

    I attended a re-showing of Il Trovatore at my local cinema tonight (Feb. 21, 2017) and there were no subtitles. I asked a cinema employee if they needed to be turned on and he told me, "There are no subtitles for this one." I asked if there were subtitles for the original broadcast and he said, "No." And of course, no refund was offered. I'd appreciate it if you would look into it. If I can't reliably count on knowing that subtitles will be present, I just won't go to any more broadcasts. The theater is:
