Enjoy Live Opera From Anywhere


During the 2023-24 Season, the third performance of every opera will be available as a livestream.

The Details

The third performance of every main-stage opera during the 2023 season will be available to view as a livestream.  In addition, the opera will be available on-demand for 48 hours after the performance.


Tickets for each livestream performance are $27.50.  
See below for the livestream schedule.


Samsung SmartTVs:
Running the FrontRow app on a Samsung SmartTV is more complicated as they are each certified separately.  The current list of available TVs, as of their last update, is as follows:

Basic, Standard, and Premium models for 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023

The application will not load (nor is it findable on models older than the ones listed here).  If you also have a newer model and it is not one of the ones listed here you may also be affected.  

Samsung's last update was July 5, 2023.
