Will the streaming be at that link? (I didn't have time to watch the video to see if it says there... :angelnot: )

This sounds really interesting. The preview does not say where the link will be for the streaming. If anyone has more information please share!

They've said it will be on the Royal Opera House YouTube channel. Here's the link:

http://www.youtube.com/royaloperahouse

If the broadcast doesn't appear there, I imagine there will be a further link on that page.

It's apparently a collaboration between the Royal Ballet and The Guardian and here is a link for the Guardian for Friday, 23rd March:

Wait a minute. If the streaming starts at 10:30, is that British time? Does that mean that it really starts at 5:30 in the morning EST?

If you click the link to Royal Opera House, it has a count down clock. Right now (10:15pm EST), it says 8 hours 15 minutes to the Live Stream.

Actually it starts at 6.30am EST [3.30am PST] - because the clocks have not yet gone 1 hour forward in Europe - they wait until March 25th.
Here is the calendar/schedule link:

It should be interesting!

Thank you so much, SewRibbons and moddydave! I'm not getting up at 6:30, but there's a rehearsal at 8:00 that interests me that I would have otherwise missed.

There are so many advantages to being homeschooled....:D

And for those who missed the live stream, here are the highlights, courtesy of the Guardian (we are very very lucky in the UK to have newspapers that are still very high quality).

Thank you, Redbookish.
I was able to catch parts of this, including the Alice in Wonderland rehearsal. I have been wondering if there was any press regarding Beatrice's Alice debut? I just wondered how it turned out for her.
