Streaming Opera Is So Easy

Watch streaming opera on your big flat TV screen easily by broadcasting from your computer to the screen by either:

  1. Connecting wirelessly with a Chromecast device ($35,available online, Target, Best Buy, etc.) or something similar.
  2. Using an HDMI cable from your computer’s HDMI (out) to your TV screen’s HDMI (in).
  3. Below are streaming sites to check out:The Opera Platform (Europe) FREE

    Vienna Staatsoper (Austria)

    Arte.tv (France) FREE

    i.Opera (Spain) FREE

    Culturebox (France) FREE

    Medici.tv  FREE, except catalog

    Indiana University (USA) FREE

    Metropolitan Opera (USA)

    YouTube full length operas  FREE

    Operacat (lists numerous opera links)

    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.
