Opera and ballet at home - Accentus Music and the Opernhaus Zürich offer the audience an opportunity to stay in touch in times of the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing. Between March 27 and June 28, 2020, Accentus Music productions of opera and ballet performances are available to stream in Switzerland on the opera house's website free of charge.
