A YT video from this production of Le Nozze (in its 30 years old incarnations at Opéra Garnier in Paris):

and a video from the Tcherniakov's production of Wozzeck premiered in Moscow less than a year ago (it was the first time Berg was performed in Moscow):



  1. In the summer it seemed we had a fountain of web-streamed broadcasts to look forward to, but that well seems to have dried up now - :(

  2. There are quite good concerts on Arte-Live Web.

    Tonight Rozhdestvenskys will be performing Prokofiev.

    Tomorrow there will be again Dudamel [this time with Wiener Philharmoniker] with the same program as in Lucerne.

    As for operas Arte-Live Web does it only during the festivals. Le Nozze on France3 will be relatively easy to see on Internet. There is a whole bunch of live-stream web-channels so... ;)

    MezzoTV instead is more complicated. I was told there is a chance they will be included in on of the US cable networks, but that's too fresh an info right now.


  3. do wish it was easier to get information on internet broadcasts - a central source of some kind. Other than Arte and Medici, one really has to search. I was lucky to get wind of the Lucern "Aida" but i wonder how many others i've missed. Am hoping one day to discover a diligent and reliable blogger out there who will keep us stay-at-home types musically(and visually) stimulated. michael

  4. think i referred here a bit earlier about a Lucerne "Aida" but actually think it was from Basel. This was the "on-location" production - a different director but the same principals as the house production. michael

  5. Would be great if opera houses and societies would set up more Youtube channels, or Vimeo. Maybe we should petition them?!
