Why am I having trouble hearing the video? 

Check both the volume level on your computer or device as well as the volume setting in the lower-right corner of the video player. Also, check that your computer or device has not accidentally paired with an unused Bluetooth speaker or headset in your home. If you intend to play audio via Bluetooth, check that your speaker or headset has paired successfully with your computer or device, resetting the connection if needed.

Why is my video grainy? 

Video quality adjusts automatically to the speed of your internet connection. If you continue to experience grainy or low-quality video playback, your internet connection may be unstable or may have been interrupted. Try refreshing your browser, and keep other streaming content to a minimum in any open tabs and apps. If the issue persists, try a different device, restart your router, or check your ISP speed here.

Which browser should I use to have the best viewing experience?

If you’re streaming on a Windows computer, we recommend using the latest versions of Chrome or Edge. For Mac users, we recommend using the latest versions of Chrome or Safari.

Can I download a performance and watch it offline?

No, to watch our on demand content, you will need a continuous internet connection. Our content is streamed via the internet, not downloaded to your device.
