While we’re lazing around next Saturday afternoon, the Bavarian State Ballet will be hard at work, performing a triple bill of early 20th century ballets from the repertoire of the Ballets Russes. But you don’t have to miss out—the company is streaming their performance live on STAATSOPER.TV for free. The performance, which starts at 7:30 Munich time (that translates to 1:30 EST/10:30 PST) on June 21, includes three classics from the Diaghilev era: Bronislava Nijinska’s Les Biches, Vaslav Nijinsky’s L’Apres-midi d’un faune and Michael Fokine’s Shéhérazade. So go ahead and cancel those brunch plans. Click on to watch.
