    Question Youtube operas with English subtitles...................

    Thought it might be nice to list them here for English speakers like me.

    I'll start with the Boulez/Chereau Ring
    and the Jurowski/Glyndebourne Meistersinger.

    What other youtube operas have English subtitles?
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    A delightful "vintage" Don Giovanni from the 1950s:

    A handy find for me as the DVD of this that I ordered for $8 off of E-bay is not coming. The seller decided not to sell it after I paid for it, and instead sent me a refund saying that it was already sold (He got reported to E-bay). The next cheapest one is about $20, so I will abide with this for now:

    This guy painstakingly adds double subtitles. It must take him ages.

    Can anyone find or post a copy of the Fidelio from 1977 staring Janowitz and Vickers? I can get the whole thing on You Tube but subs are in some other language. I see it listed for used sale as a VHS. Apparently no DVD was ever made of it.

    Thank goodness it is available on DVD. It's such a good production and very nicely sung too.
