An OperaBobb sidebar: The above sites which are particularly good about announcing streams of future productions are: The Opera Platform, Vienna Staatsoper, Medici.tv, and Indiana University. My favorite is the Vienna Staatsoper. They stream their entire season and “encore” it in numerous time zones for a few days after their live stream.
