UK Libraries has purchased five packages through Drama Online thanks to requests from the CFA Department of Theatre & Dance and the Lucille Caudill Little endowment funds at the Little Fine Arts Library. We are thrilled to offer these to the UK community.
Our five packages include the National Theatre Collection, two Royal Shakespeare Company packages, and two Shakespeare's Globe packages:
Drawing on 10 years of NT Live broadcasts and high-quality archive recordings, the National Theatre Collection contains 30 filmed performances including Greek classics, Shakespeare, literary adaptations, and modern classics performed at the National Theatre in London.
25 films of live productions from the Royal Shakespeare Company from 2013 to 2019, including the 2016-17 production of The Tempest starring Simon Russell Beale and the recent Twelfth Night starring Adrian Edmondson.
30 films recorded live on the Globe stage with actors including Mark Rylance, Stephen Fry, and Roger Allam’s Olivier Award-winning Falstaff in Henry IV, and productions including the first production from the indoor Jacobean theatre, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, in 2014.
In addition to lots and lots of ephemeral YouTube videos you can search for by keywords, here are some more curated, freely-available-online resources for non-western theatre:
