Let’s start with the National Theatre, who are screening their 2011 production of Frankenstein from 30 April.

Moving on to dance, English National Ballet artistic director Tamara Rojo is leading a masterclass on 29 April at 11am UK time. Then later in the day the company is streaming its production of Akram Khan’s Dust via Facebook and YouTube.

And, if that gets you in the mood to move, it is also International Dance Day on the 29th. Online classes are taking place all day with instructors including Rachel Sheil, Veronika Sardiko, Mihaela Griveva and Maria O’Malley.

In opera, Opéra National de Paris is streaming Bizet’s Carmen, in a production by Calixto Bieito, until 3 May.
