Ciao, Opera Mavens. Some good streaming coming up plus great news about our local Maestro Paiement, who is about to conduct Opera Parallele’s new production of Jonathon Dove’s comic opera Flight.

BBC offers the “North Opera” acclaimed production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle starting Feb 12: Watch “The End of the World” on the BBC.

Opera Parallele’s (and Dallas Opera’s) Nicole Paiement on national news: Paiement on PBS News Hour.

Mark your calendar! for Feb 26 at 8am! It’s Joyce DiDonato (Merola 1997) and Lawrence Brownlee in Rossini’s Semiramide from Munich.

Yea Team! The English subtitles are now up on the wonderful Monnaie production of Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Golden Cockerel (Le Coq D’or) on The Opera Platform. Mavens, you’ll never see a more exciting chicken in any opera. Trust me.
