While we’re approaching the end of this period of confinement, taking a trip to the theatre is still not as simple as it once was. While we’re waiting to properly get back into the swing of our favourite pastime, we continue to rely on the wonderful web to provide us with all we need to satisfy our theatrical cravings. Have a read of what we’ve been loving this week.
Last weekend marked the 35th edition of the Fête de la Musique, an annual music celebration that takes place in June. Paris came alive and it was truly a sight to behold, though if you were unable to be in Paris and partake in the action for yourself, check out this lyric concert that the Opéra de Paris published to celebrate the event!
Also streamed this week was the Paris Fringe Festival on YouTube. While the festival is unfortunately unable to take place in the flesh this year, we’re certainly keeping up with the action online. Check out shows from all across the globe here! For more information on Paris Fringe, have a read of our blog post filling you in on all you need to know.
London’s Royal Opera House has made their production of Mozart’s the Magic flute available for streaming until 3rd July. Have a watch of this scintillating production on their YouTube channel.
We’re a huge fan of virtual tours, and this week, Google Arts and Culture brought us a virtual tour of the magnificent Chateau de Fontainebleu, a castle located just south of Paris. Immerse yourself in the breath-taking sights from the comfort of your own home.
Another virtual experience that we enjoyed this week was the tour of the Catacombes. Catching a glimpse of this haunting crowd favourite never felt so simple. Click here for more information.
As usual, we’ve been updating our blog, and this week we detailed our favourite things to do in Paris outdoors. Have a look at it for yourself and prepare to hit the streets of Paris this summer!
We also made a blog post detailing how the Parisian theatre scene has constantly adapted, and how it continues to do so. Check it out here!
