sundry items of livestreaming

Via La Cieca, Whitebox Art Center will be video streaming its Alcina performance/installation tonight and tomorrow (9/20 & 21) at 7pm Eastern.

Indiana University Jacobs School of Music has started its video streaming of student performances this weekend with L'Italiana in Algeri. Tonight's performance starts at 8pm Eastern.

And of course the Met season begins on Monday with Richard Eyre's new production of Le Nozze di Figaro, audio streaming on SiriusXM and from the Met's website, festivities beginning at 5:45pm Eastern, followed by SiriusXM-only webcasts of Boheme on Tuesday and Macbeth on Wednesday.

Off to the races...


  1. Thanks for the link to Alcina: I would have missed it otherwise (going to try to catch the performance tomorrow on the 21st)

    1. So do you think the crashing stream was part of the installation? Like a Benjaminian critique of technology's insidious influence on our expectations vis a vis the consumption of art in a media culture?

      We were at sandlot Giulio Cesare, so we missed it altogether.
