Coming to a PC near you, Opera Live

Opera Houses are slowly waking up to the possibilities of modern technology, in a piecemeal and varied sort of way. You only have to look at the way internet booking was taking up quickly by some and very slowly by others to understand how live hook-ups and video-streaming are being implemented quite patchily. Besides the high profile, high definition Cinema showings from the Metropolitan Opera and the Royal Opera, there are a number of sites offering live opera streaming.

Now the Royal Opera Liege has joined the throng and the big advantage is that its free. So from the 2nd February for 5 days you can watch Bellini's Capuletti e Montecchi with Patrizia Ciofi and Laura Polveri directed by Claudia Muti (conductor Riccardo Muti's wife). With Rigoletto following in March.

    Muti's wife is called Cristina, not Claudia.
