The Royal Albert Hall is streaming a Sarah Brightman concert for free this Bank Holiday weekend.
Since the theatre world’s curtains were brought down due to the coronavirus outbreak, a host of shows have been made available for people to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes – you can read our digital theatre streaming guide here. The Royal Albert Hall has joined the virtual crowd, with a host of former events streaming almost daily throughout the pandemic, with previous events including KT Tunstall, Alfie Boe and Rufus Wainwright.
This weekend, as well as Katherine Jenkins performing a special VE Day concert live from the empty hall, Sarah Brightman’s concert from 1997 will be made available for free on YouTube.
The show, not commercially available, saw Sarah perform an unforgettable concert of well-known Classical and Broadway pieces by composers such as Puccini, Gershwin, Delibes, Bernstein and Andrew Lloyd Webber. She is joined by special guests including Andrea Bocelli for the iconic Time to Say Goodbye, and Andrew Lloyd Webber on piano while Sarah sings the title song from his musical Whistle Down the Wind, as well as a special duet of Pie Jesu with Adam Clarke.
The concert will premiere at 8pm on Saturday 9th May and will be available to stream for free globally for 72 hours.
