The Royal Opera House has announced a new holiday streaming slate on Dec. 18, 19, and 20.

In addition to a production of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker,” the company will be showcasing four performances of a “Christmas Concert” featuring scenes from Rossini’s “La Cenerentola,” Humperdinck’s “Hansel and Gretel” as well as extracts from Puccini’s “La Bohème,” Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” and Vaughan William’s “Fantasia on Christmas Carols.”

Soloists include Jennifer Davis, Hanna Hipp, Jeremy White, and Roderick Williams, as well as Stephanie Wake-Edwards and Dominic Sedgwick. The Royal Opera Chorus, Jette Parker Young Artists and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House will also join in on the holiday fun.

“After such a challenging year, I am immensely proud to be unveiling this roster of uplifting Christmas highlights for the whole family,” said Alex Beard, the Chief Executive of the Royal Opera House in a press release. “As we continue to navigate uncertain times, we look forward once again to welcoming audiences back to our auditorium, and to showcase some of the world’s greatest artists on our stages. Whatever the challenges before us, we are thrilled to offer some much-needed relief and delight to our audiences.”

The performances can be watched on the company’s official website.
