Marquee.TV Streaming Platform Launches


Marquee.TV, a new on-demand streaming platform dedicated to live arts and culture, has launched in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.

The service features a catalog of international contemporary and classic dance, opera, music and theatre content, as well as documentaries. Marquee.TV has partnered with Opus Arte, which supplies productions from the Royal Opera House and Glyndebourne, and others to build out its content library. The platform also selects various new productions and independent performances that are typically performed live. New titles are added each Wednesday.

Marquee.TV is currently spotlighting productions from choreographer Sidi Lardi Cherkaoui, Adam’s Passion and a Royal Shakespeare Company production of Cymbeline. Recently added titles to the platform include the documentary John Cage: Journeys in Sound; Messa da Requiem, a co-production of Verdi’s funeral mass by Zürich Opera House and Ballet; Richard II starring David Tennant; Gregory Doran’s Henry V; and Antony and Cleopatra from the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Currently available on Apple TV, Amazon Fire, iOS, Android and smart TVs in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada, Marquee.TV is slated to roll out globally during the rest of 2019.

Simon Walker, Marquee.TV co-founder and CEO, said: “Marquee.TV will be a home for the freshest, most innovative, most adventurous performances around. Marquee.TV makes it possible for the ‘culturally curious’ to sample and experience the performances they’re reading about from around the world, whenever and wherever they want, giving audiences the chance to take risks and explore something they might not otherwise see when time, finances and opportunity are scarce. 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.”
