      Dear Christine

      I am afraid that live streaming via YouTube is blocked in Germany due to a dispute over responsibility for potential copyright infringement. Unfortunately this also applies to streams such as our where all the rights are fully cleared:

    In seeking to advise friends domiciled in Miami about the live streaming event tonight it would be helpful to know the steps they should take ( in laymans terms) to accomplish viewing., if indeed it will be possible for them to do so. I look forward to hearing from you . Many thanks.

      Dear Michael

      If they are watching through a computer they should just visit this page and press play to see it live at 7pm BST.

      As long as you have good broadband, set the quality to HD (button at bottom right of YouTube player) and also expand to full screen.

      Enjoy!

      Ellen

    Will this be archived on the Youtube channel the way some of the other live streams have been?
    Even though it's a holiday for some in the US, some of us have to work so can't watch live...

      Dear Rebecca

      Unfortunately we will be unable to provide a catch up on this occasion, so the stream will be online only. Sorry!

      Best wishes

    Can only join at 8 PM, would it be poss to start stream then pause then continue?? Think not but worth checking...

    • Ellen West (Head of Creative Studios and Digital Products) responded on 3 July 2015 at 11:42pm

      Sorry Sue, I don't think that will work.

      Best wishes

    greetings from Toronto....as a confirmed opera nut....Don Giovanni is one of the staples of the repertoire...I am not sure that it is a good starter opera for the uninitiated but certainly for someone wanting to study Mozart...it's a gem....this streaming is very sharp...thank you Royal opera engineers...

    Thank you so so much for this wonderful evening with this extraordinary production of "Don Giovanni"! It really was great! Unfortunately I couldn't come to Covent Garden this year, but today I 've been so lucky to join this performance live! I'm very sad, that our friends in Germany - due to legal circumstances - couldn't join us as well! Many greetings and best regards from Vienna, Austria

    Where was Mozart's epilogue? Surely he knew best how to end his opera!
    This leaves us feeling unsatisfied and a bit dizzy!

    Hi Chris, just got back from the live performance at the ROH. Wish I could have read your blog live as I thought I was thinking much the same, except I was obsessing how much the eyebrows guy looked like Mr Bean. And by the way, there wasn't a choc ice to be found at the ROH, only those posh little cartons you have to eat with a tooth pick. Thanks for an entertaining commentary.

  9. I just finished looking and listening to a DVD of the production of Don G. at the Met with Levine/Terfel I’m sure the music is still gorgeous but I can’t stomach the modern productions. Bryn Terfel’s don was the ultimate seducer - and his acting — especially with Leparello - cannot be surpassed. Why change a good thing???
