Today’s an exciting day in the unfolding popular progress of video livestreaming. Whilst the Occupy movement, internet gaming, and comedians and entertainers (eg. Limmy and Tomska) have been making good use of this technology recently, today is a new watershed – high culture has joined the livestreaming party.
The Royal Opera is livestreaming all day today, behind the scenes of the Royal Ballet, with rehearsals, interviews and special features on every aspect of ballet school life.
It’s hard not to admire such a quality event – #RBLive is currently trending on twitter, the camerawork is excellent, and the whole thing is well organised. Surely this will open up ballet to a whole new internet audience, which can only reflect well on all involved.
