Musicals, Opera & Dance

Performing arts subscription streamer Cennarium is debuting seven titles encompassing opera, dance and musicals from around the world.

We’ll start with Dracula, The Musical, since it’s about one of our favorite monsters.

Dracula, The Musical has been one of Argentina’s largest theatrical successes since premiering in 1992. Cennarium is showing a subtitled 159-minute version from 2011. It stars Juan Rodo, who has played the infamous vampire since the show’s debut.

Here’s a non-subtitled trailer:

Opera is covered by Das Liebesverbot. This early comical Wagner piece, based on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, was filmed in 2016 in Spain. Performed in German by Teatro Real Madrid, with English subtitles, it runs 165 minutes.

Dance dominates Cennarium’s five other new  titles:

Footwork & Fugues (Germany, 2011, 52 minutes) is a documentary about The Flying Steps, four-time world champions in breakdance:

Are You Ready for Dance? (international, 2007, 136 minutes) contains a series of dancer and choreographer portraits.

Keep the Flame: The Choreographer Martin Schläpfer (Germany, 2016, 86 minutes) is a documentary about the Swiss dancer and choreographer.

Casse-Noisette (Italy, 2002, 93 minutes) is not to be confused with Cennarium’s other versions of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker.” This one’s from the Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Italy.

Enter Achilles (Austria, 1995, 47 minutes ) is an English-language dance theater work by Lloyd Newson that explores masculinity. Cennarium calls it “unsettling and powerful,” covering “dangerous emotional ground in movement that is both innovative and revealing.” Oh, let’s just watch the whole thing!


You can subscribe to Cennarium for $9.97 per month or $95.64 annually, both with a 10-day free trial. Visit for more info.
