Update - Watch the Insight event on demand:

An introductory Insights event exploring the much-anticipated new Royal Opera and Roundhouse production of Orfeo will be live-streamed on 8 January.

The event will feature production director Michael Boyd, Director of The Royal Opera Kasper Holten and members of the cast and creative team. It will explore the creation of a new production of the first great opera. The event will be live-streamed for free here on this page from 6.45pm GMT.

The ROH Insights team are working with young people aged 18-25 from the Roundhouse's Bloomberg Broadcast course to produce the event. The course offers volunteers not currently studying or working the chance to gain valuable experience and professional mentoring within the creative industries.

ROH Creative Producer Tom Nelson is one of the team working with the young people:

‘Back in September eight alumni from the scheme shadowed our Film and Broadcast team here in Covent Garden as they worked on a BP Big Screen live relay of Rigoletto.

‘The young people will be putting this experience to practical use, producing the live Insight from The Roundhouse's Studio Theatre. Directing, scripting, editing, camera operating - it will all be them, and in a pressurized live broadcast environment, anything could happen!’

Orfeo runs 13–24 January 2015 at the Roundhouse. Limited numbers of tickets are available from the Royal Opera House and Roundhouse websites.
The production is a new collaboration between the Roundhouse and The Royal Opera.

    Although I applaud the intention, it would have been helpful to know this we are travelling some distance to the Insight at the Roundhouse and would have preferred to watch this in the comfort of our home.

      Dear Vanessa

      Apologies for the late notice - we were just making final checks to ensure everyone was happy to go ahead with the live stream.

      Best wishes

    Can you please supply details on how to access the live feed for this event. What is the URL?

    I also endorse the earlier comment regarding the late notice that there would be a live feed. I was intending to come but am pleased I can now see this at home as I will be coming to a performance next week, but it would have been very helpful to have known earlier.

      Apologies for the short notice.

    Thanks for streaming this. I'm coming to see the production and was fascinated by a lot of what a number of the speakers had to say.
