From the Washington Post:

HD broadcasts, once the future of opera, are now seen by some as its demise

Enjoy!

Puritani and Damrau Rule!

Ciao, Opera Mavens. Yesterday, Diana Damrau triumphed at the Liceu in Madrid in Bellini’s I Puritani. And tenor Xavier Camareno and baritone Ludovic Tezier weren’t exactly chopped liver either. Great production overall.

An Operabobb sidebar: Hard streaming decision yesterday. I Puritani Iive from Madrid and Il Trovatore live from London were both scheduled at 11am. (Both productions are repeated online for several days.) I opted for Puritani. Good decision because the Trovatore turned out to be not-so-great.

The Barber of Seville will be available for streaming starting Jul 22 at 11am on The Opera Platform from Wide Open Opera (Ireland).

Check out the upcoming Munich streaming schedule at Bayerische Staatsoper. The next production will be Rameau’s Les Indes galantes on Jul 24 at 9am and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg on Jul 31 at 8am.

Enjoy!
