    Default Streaming media

    I'm sure there's already a thread for this but I can't find it. I would welcome info on sites which offer videos and streaming.

    I found KING FM the other day & I'm currently listening to Callas' Lucia.

    And there's this Classical TV.

    Medici TV has a some free concerts, and there is a subscription service for Video on Demand.

    Met Player has opera video and audio broadcasts for US14.95 a month, with a seven day free trial subscription.

    http://www.classicaltv.com/ has a free section. You'll have to hunt around a bit as there's lots of items there and the search function is only mediocre, but it has some gems like the Laurent Pelly "La Belle Helene"


    e: how in the world did I miss the existing link to ClassicalTV in the OP? I'll preserve my stupidity for others to mock as they see fit.

    e2: For some additional content in this post, I'll add links to:

    That's great, thanks! I wish they weren't so hit-and-miss on subtitles though. Been wanting to watch Tristan und Isolde but without subs, well....

    Wow, Natalie, thanks a lot! I was considering whether I should purchase Curlew River or not, and you've just saved me some bucks!

    I have fallen in love Spotify. It has examples of most musical genres, including a great deal of classical music I would never have expected to find there (listening to Kalevi Aho's 13th Symphony there now). One can stream for free and download for a subscription. The only downside is that ads can intrude between tracks between in the free version.

    Parterre Box has a section called Unnatural Acts of Opera - lots of interesting and historical audio performances.

    I found this site and it looks like you can listen/download for free if you live in the US.

    Beware of these sites, Annie, sometimes they're too good to be true, virus infested, traps for identity theft, not to forget copyright violations.

    Sound advice. I'm always very careful & therefore miss out on all sorts of stuff. I'm not very tech-minded so would be in the 'proverbial' if my PC got infested.

    I love my Met Player subscription. It's well worth the $15 a month for unlimited access to the archives of the world's greatest opera house (yes, I'm very biased towards the Met). I live in SF and I usually attend at least a few operas during its fall season. This year, I was so pleased with Met Player that I decided to forgo going to SF Opera as I realized Met Player's quality was so good and the signing is probably better.

    My favorite archive would have to be Nozze with Terfel at Figaro, Fleming as La Contessa, and Bartoli as Susanna. That must been a hot ticket. Croft is a very fine Conte. It's interesting that De Niese had her Met debut as Marcelina and then a decade later to perform the role of one of the principals, Susanna.

    I love the Met as well, but the San Francisco Opera is a fine company too. I got a 6-month subscription to MetPlayer, it's been three months and so far I've only managed to watch two videos.

    It's 03:45 in UK & I'm sitting listening to a live stream of Don Quichotte. I must be mad.
