Vienna State Opera goes live stream

October 24, 2013

For all those who can't come to the Vienna State Opera—it can now come to you.

Starting Sunday, the company is offering what it describes as state-of-the art live streaming, with able to switch between a view of the stage and close-ups with moving cameras. Innovations promised by the year's end will include apps providing subtitles in English, German and Korean and a synchronized score of the work being shown.

The project starts off with Richard Strauss' "Der Rosenkavalier" ("Knight of the Rose.")

The company is recognized as one of the world's best and the viewing has its price. A live stream performance costs 14 euros ($20) while an on-demand stream from the archives will sell for 5 euros, or almost $7.
