The remarkable return of Samuel Barber’s Vanessa is being shown on a handful of cinema screens around the UK, but not on any television channel.

You can watch it here for free tonight, from a Vienna-based streaming site. Or 2pm NY time.

Ignore the ugly costume. Emma Bell is Vanessa.

    It’s streaming on the Glyndebourne website right now, and will available until 11.59pm on August 21.

    I attended the performance last week. Somewhat overshadowed by a wacky production of Handel’s Saul a few days earlier but much to savour. The final quintet is very nice.

    also available FREE to view via the Telegraph website

    I saw this in cinema. Very worthwhile experience for a modest price. Compelling visceral performance from the female leads and a gripping ambivalent production with giant mirrors. Lovely understated world weary performance from Donnie Ray Albert as the family doctor
