Music Library patrons will now be able to stream opera performances online from “Opera in Video” presented by Alexander Street Press:
“Opera in Video will contain 250 of the most important opera performances, captured on video through staged productions, interviews, and documentaries. Selections represent the world’s best performers, conductors, and opera houses and are based on a work’s importance to the operatic canon. The collection presents an overview of the most commonly studied operas in music history, opera literature, and performance classes. Multiple performances and stagings worldwide of the major operas allow for analysis of stage design, vocal techniques, roles, and musical interpretation across time periods, opera houses, and conductors.”
Patrons can access the streaming video database through the link on the Music Library’s homepage or click here.
