On 22 October, we launch OAE Player, a brand new digital platform with over 30 new and visually-stunning performance videos and masterclasses.

The ultra high definition films on OAE Player have been shot in unique locations across the UK, chosen by our musicians to create a cinematic experience, rather than a simple live stream.

It is possible for you to purchase your annual pass now, which will allow you to watch all the videos on demand from Thursday 22 October 2020 – 21 October 2021.


Frequently Asked Questions

Will there only by thirty films?
We’re having so much fun making these performance videos and masterclasses that we will keep adding new films to our website throughout the year.

How are these films different from concert recordings I’ve seen on YouTube?
The films on OAE Player are longer in length, ranging from 20 minutes to 90 minutes, and are created for a more immersive experience than the educational videos that we produce for our YouTube channel.
OAE Player films have been recorded specifically for the OAE Player, in visually stunning locations across the UK. Each location has been chosen to enhance the ideas that we’re exploring in the repertoire and we will provide information about these connections alongside the films.
We have invested in multiple ultra-high definition cameras so that you can see the close-up details of the performances in a way that feels more like a cinematic experience than a static concert. In some of the films, our musicians will talk to the camera and share their ideas about the music, in other films we will offer behind the scenes films, interviews and intimate masterclasses with guest artists.

Will I need to download anything?
No, once the platform launches, all the videos will be available to stream straight to your device.

What about the pay-per-view tickets?
With our pay-per-view option, the film will be available for one year on your personalised account. The pay-per-view ticket option will range in price depending on the length of the film and will be between £4 – £7. We are still doing a lot of financial modelling to make sure we balance this so the content remains accessible to as many people as possible, whilst remaining a valid income stream to aid our survival and we always welcome feedback: boxoffice@oae.co.uk
