Video Alert: “Rosenkavalier” Livestream today (Dec. 18th, 2020)

Starting at 6 p.m. Vienna time (noon New York time), Vienna State Opera will air a “Rosenkavalier”, played – theatre closures be damned – live to an empty hall.

Live opera (and paid singers, imagine *that*) in this 2020 pandemic hellmouth concert darth!

You’ll need a (free) account, and should able to access the stream internationally, also free of charge.

(huge thanks to Staatsoper for making this happen, and making it accessible, too).
