International Desire

Please God, let this be available on this side of the pond!  And let me please accurately figure out what time that actually starts in Denver...

Update:  SUCCESS!!!!!


  1. According to the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden's website:

    Auch im Internet können Opernliebhaber in einigen Ländern live dabei sein. UNITEL CLASSICA sendet zeitgleich in HD Qualität in Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz, Frankreich, Italien, Spanien, Tschechische Republik, Slowakei, Bulgarien, Luxemburg, Malta, Japan, Korea, Taiwan und Südafrika. Außerdem wird diese Vorstellung Internet gestreamt und ist dort unter folgender Adresse für 90 Tage abrufbar:!/ariadne-auf-naxos-festspielhaus-baden-baden-philippe-arlaud

    So I'm hoping we qualify under "weltweit".

    The Festspielhaus website has the start time at 20:15. Since Medici's website is telling me 2:15, it should be telling you 12:15, yes?

  2. My German consist of the Brahms Requiem...So I am not sure what "weltweit" means though I hope you are right! When I tinkered with a world clock I thought it started at 11am here...according to the above link it is 7pm Germany time. We'll see what happens!

  3. Oh, sorry, my German consists mostly of Operacast listings, so the relevant bold bit says they'll be streaming it worldwide (weltweit), and then it will be available for viewing at that URL for 90 days after. :-)

  4. Ha! This morning on my walk (listening to Renee singing Capriccio) I was mumbling "weltweit" out loud and then thought, "Well duh, Towanda, that's about as easy as it gets!" Silly me! I will be up checking on it by 10am my time...Here's hoping!

  5. So that's the first time in a long while that I've heard Es gibt ein Reich and didn't think "meh". Thanks for the heads-up!

  6. I managed to watch most of the archived programme yesterday, without subscription, by manipulating the time bar and refreshing the page when I was interrupted by a "why not subscribe?" message.
