Performing art streaming service Marquee TV launches in the UAE

Theatre-goers of the UAE haven’t been able to see live art performances in light of Covid-19, but this new on-demand streaming service has come to satisfy that artistic appetite.

Performing art streaming service Marquee TV has launched in the UAE, and it offers up a wealth of acclaimed shows from Royal Opera House, Bolshoi Ballet, Royal Shakespeare Company and more.

Now available through www.marquee.tv and Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV, there’s a catalogue of contemporary and classic masterpieces, including dance, opera, music, theatre, and documentaries.

There are new performances added every Saturday, with June 13's being Mayerling from The Royal Ballet’s most recent version of the production.
