Penne 4 Your Thoughts

Penne Cole's thoughts on food, travel and more

Grateful: Music

As social distancing continues and mass gatherings have been banned for the forseeable future, today I’m grateful that the performing arts industry has chosen to take their craft online instead.

Cirque du Soleil

One of my favourite live acts, Cirque du Soleil, has temporarily suspended all of their shows. Instead, they have migrated online, with their CirqueConnect channel. So far, they have premiered a number of 60-minute specials, including content from their most popular shows, Zed, Kooza, and my personal favourite, O.

The Bolshoi theater shared six of their most popular productions, including Swan Lake and The Nutcracker on YouTube for a limited time.

Even Andrew Lloyd Webber joined the fray with his YouTube channel, The Shows Must Go On sharing the Phantom of the Opera last weekend.

If you’re a classical music fan, some of the world’s best classical music venues are sharing their shows for free too, including the Berlin Philharmonic, and New York’s Metropolitan Opera and Lincoln Centre Chamber Music Society.

So today, I’m grateful that there’s a wealth of free shows out there we can watch once we’re tired of binge watching Netflix shows!

What are you grateful for?

    Grateful for many things. Mostly, I think we have been gifted this window of time to reconnect with ourselves. Kind of analyze our priorities. Donna
