The Vienna State Opera (which is closed until at least 15 April 2020) has responded to the crisis, like many other organisations, by extending its on-line content. The company's regular on-line offering at Staatsoperlive.com has been extended to include a nightly free broadcast from the archives, with the operatic selection based on what was due to be performed live that evening, so we don't have to miss out.

The operas are detailed on the company's website, so this week include L'elisir d'amore, La cenerentola, Tosca, Le nozze di Figaro and Götterdämmerung.

 Perhaps the most interesting so-far scheduled is the performance for 1 April 2020, Richard Strauss' Die Frau ohne Schatten (performance of 10 June 2019), conductor: Christian Thielemann | director: Vincent Huguet, with Stephen Gould (Der Kaiser), Camilla Nylund (Die Kaiserin), Evelyn Herlitzius (Die Amme), Wolfgang Bankl (Geisterbote), Wolfgang Koch (Barak, der Färber), Nina Stemme (Färberin)
