Marquee TV was built to serve passionate, arts-hungry audiences who are underserved by other media outlets. The network features thousands of hours of content, including exclusive titles, behind-the-scenes content, early releases, director’s cuts, and shorts. With this latest launch, Marquee TV now provides customers in Australia and New Zealand direct access to a variety of carefully curated, world-class contemporary and classic theatrical, dance, opera, and music performances from globally renowned artistic powerhouses.
“Watching performances on-demand is a distinct experience from heading to the theatre and streaming is opening up cultural content to a new arts-curious generation,” said Simon Walker, Co-Founder, and CEO of Marquee TV. “After successful launches in the UK and US, we’re thrilled to bring Marquee TV to Australia and New Zealand, giving customers access to premier multi-genre performing arts content that is not available anywhere else.”
Complementing the offerings currently available in the live arts ecosystem, Marquee TV’s programming includes acclaimed productions such as the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Richard II starring David Tennant (“Doctor Who,” “Jessica Jones“); Bolshoi Ballet’s Swan Lake starring Svetlana Zakharova and Denis Rodkin; The Royal Ballet’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; the Royal Opera House’s Madama Butterfly starring Ermonela Jaho; Glyndebourne’s The Barber of Seville starring Danielle de Niese and Alessandro Corbelli; New York City Ballet in Paris; Kidd Pivot/Electric Company Theatre’s Betroffenheit; and contemporary productions by Akram Khan, Robert Wilson, and Mark Morris. While some works, such as Betroffenheit and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, have made their way to the region to great reviews, many will be new to local audiences.
Marquee TV puts customers first by giving them the opportunity to stream their programming a multitude of ways. Whether viewers want to watch performances on a big screen or simply on their phones, there are plenty of platforms to use. Marquee TV is available to stream on its website, where subscribers can manage their subscriptions and also purchase gift cards.
