    Parsifal live at 7.30pm? That's going to be a very late curtain.
    Good to hear that at least some of the operas are live relays as this adds greatly to the sense of occasion.

      Hi John,

      Apologies for the error, this has been corrected - Parsifal starts at 4.45pm.

      Thanks,

    Hi there, how can I track when this will be released on BBC iplayer? Can we subscribe some newsletter to know just several days in advance on the progress? Julie

      Hi Julie

      We'll be tweeting about the live broadcasts ahead of time if you'd like a reminder, but you can put the dates in your diary now - the performances will be on BBC iPlayer by the next morning.

      Best

      Ellen
