Ciao, Opera Mavens. The Zurich Opera House right now is streaming, from earlier this year, a really exciting Nabucco with Michael Volle. Fabio Luisi conducts with lightning tempi (IMHO). Stream availability ends at 3pm Sun May 3. Go to:

Starting May 9 San Francisco Opera will begin streaming its full length operas:
