Here's Where You Can Stream Opera Performances for Free

You have all the time in the world.

( Opera, a form of theater—not the web browser—is probably not everyone's cup of tea. There's a lot of high notes, enunciated words we can't really make out, and a setting that can be hard to get into. But with the month-long "enhanced community quarantine," there's no other time than to take up other interests than now. To get you started, you can log on to OperaVision for a wide selection of recorded opera performances from all over the world. Everything's for free so you don't have to worry about trial periods, restricted access, and limited availability of each clip.

You can watch Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Don Giovanni as performed by Finnish National Opera and Ballet, Royal Swedish Opera's rendition of Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly, Gioachino Rossini's The Barber of Seville by Teatro Municipal de Santiago, and more. All videos can be played on your mobile phone (whether Android or iOs), tablets, and desktop. There’s also the option of watching each with English subtitles so you don’t have to worry about missing anything. For a truly immersive experience, you can even play it on your television with surround sound.

For more information, visit OperaVision’s website.
