Marquee TV Announces New Partnerships with The Washington Ballet & the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

By Logan Martell

Marquee TV has announced new content partnerships for its global streaming service.

Joining Marquee TV are The Washington Ballet and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Both companies will have new and exclusive content shown on the platform over the coming months.

Coming to the platform in early March are four world premieres commissioned by The Washington Ballet and filmed as a co-production with Marquee TV, featuring choreography by Andile Ndlovu, Silas Farley, and Dana Genshaft. The performance of “Fanfare for the Common Man” is currently available for subscribers online.

For the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, there will be a performance of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” narrated by Rory Kinnear and set to music by Purcell. There will also be an all-Mahler program conducted by Adam Fischer, and featuring soprano Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha. The orchestra has worked with students aged 12-17 from Acland Burghley School to train them in the art of film production; the students will gain invaluable experience as they play a key role in the orchestra’s upcoming film content.

“These partnerships help us to fully support and promote content to our fanbase as well as providing opportunities for our partners’ fans to enjoy the full range of arts content Marquee TV offers,” says Cecilia Beacon, Marquee TV’s Vice President of Content and Marketing. “Through deeper digital integration, fans of The Washington Ballet & the OAE can extend the performance experience long after the live event has ended. Marquee TV can also help to build fan anticipation of the live event experiences for our partners’ key seasons.”
