The Brooklyn Museum has just taken lockdown art to another level, combining our binge – watching habits with a fascinating virtual exhibition: In conjunction with the premiere of Netflix’s original limited series The Queen’s Gambit and the upcoming fourth season of The Crown, the Brooklyn Museum in New York presents a virtual exhibition of digitally rendered and interactive 360-degree views of costumes from the two series, along with related objects from the museum’s collection, all set within a rendering of the Museum’s soaring Beaux-Arts Court.

Fashion at Versailles

You know it well, the Versailles, during the 1780s was the birthplace of fashion. Men and women of Louis XVI’s court, drew the outlines of sartorial perfection _and importance. On its website, the Château de Versailles offers two virtual exhibitions dedicated on the one hand to the male cloakroom and its codes, and on the other to a study of the style of Marie-Antoinette, one of the first major fashion icons.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi

Both modern and refined, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, opened in November 2017, was designed by Jean Nouvel, winner of the Pritzker Prize, who imagined the building as a museum-city covered by a gigantic silvery dome criss-crossed with metal stars, overlooking turquoise waters. A majestic place, composed of 23 permanent galleries, which houses its own collection of works as well as loans from French museums. As the first museum in the Arab world designed as a universal museum, the Louvre Abu Dhabi aims to be multidisciplinary and open to the world, exploring all facets of humanity through the prism of its different cultures and civilizations, from prehistory to the present day. Explore it online today!

Frida Kahlo Museum

Yes, her again…You wish to imagine what it was like to live in Frida’s Blue House, conjoined with her beloved Diego’s? This was actually the Mexico City home owned by her parents since 1904,the house in which she was born. It is here where her art evolved, it is here where she stayed in bed when she fell ill with polio and where she was immobilized for several months, after a street accident, developing her talent in a darker, far more interesting stage. Log onto the link and enjoy the literal feeling of being inside the house that protected her and helped her develop her art.

Online Theater

Poreia Theater

For Greek speaking audiences, this link offers a valuable library to the local theater scene’s most talked about plays of the (not so far gone) past. Didn’t catch the show of the season last year? Now you can, through impeccable filming and at your own pace!

Poreia Theater

The Metropolitan Opera

Organized in weeks, the program of the Met Opera is divided into themes, such as dysfunctional families…our favorite weeks are about opera’s most exceptional artists, past and present, in roles that are particularly associated with them—including memorable performances by Renée Fleming and Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Leontyne Price, Luciano Pavarotti, and many more. Nightly Opera Streams are teamed with a pay-per-view concert series, presenting opera’s greatest stars performing live via satellite from striking locations across Europe and the U.S.

The Metropolitan Opera

The Royal Opera House

From ballet to opera and from Tosca to Orpheus, choose your play, sit back and enjoy some of the world’s most incredible performances brought to you by The Royal Opera in Covent Garden. No queues, no advance booking, nothing. Just you and the screen _better make it a big one, for this address.

The Royal Opera House

Radio Plays

Radio drama, crime fiction and jazz music. This December, the Athens & Epidaurus Festival introduces Radio Plays, a new initiative featuring over 60 excellent Greek artists, working together in creative teams consisting of directors, actors, musicians and writers. Five gifted, acclaimed directors will adapt for the stage an equal number of detective stories. Generation after generation post-WWII were raised with radio drama, a truly magical genre. Thanks to radio, audiences came to know the greatest dramatists of the 20th century, guided by the iconic voices of actors performing under the baton of major Greek theatre directors. Weaving together stage action with the solitary act of listening to the radio, combining theatre language and voice, radio drama has the unique privilege of transcending limitations of space and time.

Under the circumstances, as theatre faces ongoing restraints and insurmountable obstacles, the Athens & Epidaurus Festival breathes new life into radio drama.

Radio Plays will be streamed at greekfestival.gr, free of charge for everybody.
