Opera in video

As this blog occasionally talks about opera, it has to be said that it talks about opera in video, which of course is not the same as live in the theater, but it is just a different way of delivering the opera genre to the masses.

Several large opera houses offer also high quality video of their performances on line, usually by paid subscription.

(Follow me in Twitter @DomingoMC to get occasional notices of free available opera video productions.)

Opera Vision

A very good and free outlet for opera in the Internet is Opera Vision.  Please note that their excellent offerings  are made available for a limited number of months after their live performances.

Medici.TV

A very comprehensive collection of high-quality video music concerts, opera, and ballet; it also has documentaries and a very valuable section of master classes by well-known musicians. It requires that you register with a valid e-mail address. At no charge, you can watch master classes, and a few concerts and operas that are transmitted live and then stay in replay for a few months.  (Access to the full catalog requires a monthly or an annual paid subscription.)
