On Tuesday, August 25, Cal Performances at UC Berkeley announced Cal Performances at Home, an ambitious performing arts streaming series that features 15 newly produced, full-length Main Stage performance video streams available beginning October 1, 2020 through January 14, 2021. With in-person events mostly halted by the global pandemic, Cal Performances is expanding its activities beyond the live events it has traditionally offered to present the arts in a new format, available to stream directly on demand to viewers’ home screens. Recorded on stages all over the world, from renowned venues and recording studios in the locations where the artists are sheltering in place, the series includes 10 programs that were previously scheduled for Cal Performances’ live-event fall season, four new performances, and a New Year’s Eve Musical Celebration.
