We have now published over 8000 videos on Opera on Video

As you know we removed registration and login because of the many hacker attacks we had. With this you lost the Favorites feature which allowed you to save a list of your favorite operas and videos.
You can of course bookmark the videos with your web browser.

But we support an additional method to save favorites: Drag and Drop.
You can drag a video thumbnail to your desktop and this will save a shortcut to the video there or in a folder (if you wish).
Here is a video which shows you how to do this best.

  1. Thank you for sharing so many excellent performances. Your site is a real blessing for opera lovers. I wonder however why some recordings are made public in spite of their very poor technical or artistic quality. I know that “de gustibus non est disputandum” but singing out of tune can hardly appeal to anyone.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment. You are absolutely right about the varying quality of singing, staging, audio and video. But as you say taste is very varying too. Many people want to watch a performance again they attended even if it was relatively poor – and so on. Opera on video has self-imposed strict rules what is published and what not. Please see FAQ for these. But there are also borderline cases which are difficult to decide.
