Tips for viewing the premiere livestream

  • Volume can be adjusted directly on your device or by the volume control button located in the lower right corner of the video frame player.
  • We recommend watching in full screen mode, which can be done by clicking on the four arrows on the bottom right of the video player. Please note that chat is not available when you are viewing in full screen mode.
  • We recommend not pausing during the livestream as you will not be able to rewind or fast forward. You can pause, but you will jump to live and miss the part of the performance during the pause. Refresh the page if the video doesn’t play after pausing. You may be asked to log into your account again after refreshing the page.
  • If you need assistance, our Ticket Office phone line (510.642.9988) will be open during the premiere performance. Please note that we are unable to provide support for personal devices, only for tickets and account login help. For tips on how to watch on your television and other FAQs, visit the Cal Performances at Home Everything to Know/FAQ page.
