Shakespeare Day Live event - watch the replay of ROH broadcast focused on operas and ballets inspired by the playwright's work

To celebrate the life of the Bard, the Royal Opera House has life-streamed an event focused around opera and ballet adaptations of his work.

Part of the BBC and British Council's Shakespeare Lives online festival, 'Ballet, opera and the Bard' saw rehearsals and performance from both The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet. The hour-long stream featured Principals Lauren Cuthbertson and Edward Watson rehearse The Winter's Tale, as well as a performance of the potion scene from Kenneth MacMillan's classic adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. The event will also see Royal Opera artists Susanna Gaspar, Amy Lane, Yuriy Yurchuk and Jonathan Santagada performing and rehearsing music from Verdi's two great Shakespearean operas, Otello and Falstaff.
