Anybody out there an opera fan?
And in this particular case, I'm not talking about the browser. I'm talking about real live opera.
If so, you MUST run to your nearest opera (or otherwise) browser and download the new Metropolitan Opera HD video client.
Earlier today, the Met launched its new online HD video offering to help bring opera to those who can't bring themselves to the Met in NYC.
For the first act, the Met is offering a library of 13 HD videos of past opera performances, 37 past TV performances, and 120 radio broadcasts.
I checked out a clip from the April 5 performance of "La Boheme," and both the sound and the video was absolutely brilliant.
Crystal clear, and through my Klipsch THX PC speakers, it was like I was immediately sitting in the middle orchestra of the Met on a Friday night.
The Met Player is currently offering a 7-day free trial, and if you decide you want to subscribe, they have annual, monthly, and per-viewing rentals. All of which I imagine cost less than a single seat at the real thing!
If you've never been to an opera, the new HD player is a fantastic way to introduce yourself. If you are a fan, you're in for a real treat on checking out some of those famous replays.
