The world’s leading platform for digital performing arts, Digital Theatre+ features videos, study guides, teaching tools, and reference and research materials including backstage insights, practitioner interviews, written analysis, and more than 450 productions.

A few examples of what you can find in Digital Theatre+ include:

  • 330+ HD recordings of hundreds of live captured performances across theatre, ballet, opera and classical music
  • 80+ Study Guides accompanying curricula mapped plays, written by leading academics to help students get to grip with dramatic texts
  • 220+ Interviews with actors, directors, and backstage crew providing an often unseen insight into the workings of a theatre and what it takes to stage a play
  • Relationship maps, plot summaries, theme and context analysis, glossaries and more

Digital Theatre+ complements the library’s existing streaming media collections for the performing arts from Alexander Street and Kanopy, adding access to content that focuses on performance, production, and teaching these topics in the university classroom.
