Opera Goes Online

Would it be a stretch to say that die-hard opera fans are sort of like the music world’s equivalent of "old media." (We wonder how much opera is being purchased on iTunes.) Perhaps not—beginning on Oct. 22 they can get online subscriptions to 120 audio recordings and 50 full-length videos of Metropolitan Opera performances. As the Associated Press notes, it will be the first time "Legendary performances at the Metropolitan Opera of La Boheme with Luciano Pavarotti and Otello with Placido Domingo" will be available on the Internets. All for a recession friendly $14.99 a month! More info on the service here.
