If you’re looking for something a little more highbrow than your average Netflix fare, Marquee.TV could be for you. It’s a new streaming service that promises to offer plenty for arts and culture lovers to get their teeth into.
Such as? Barbarian Nights (which is currently touring) from French-Algerian choreographer Herve Koubi, or the Royal Swedish Ballet’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Opus Arte, The Royal Opera House’s arts production and distribution company, will also use Marquee.TV to broadcast its performances around the world.
The service hopes to provide an alternative to a night out at a production.
“The Marquee.TV philosophy is all about giving audiences the chance to take risks with what they watch and explore something they might not otherwise see, when time, finances and opportunity are scarce,” said Simon Walker, the firm’s CEO and co-founder.
“Yes, our content includes the classics and some of the world’s most critically acclaimed performances, but we’re also driving our audiences to the new.”
At £8.99 a month, it’s more expensive than Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Though it’s a lot cheaper than a night out at the theatre.
