What would you do?

Have you seen the commercials for an ice cream product asking what would you do for one? Now one opera company in Germany is banking you'll spend close to what it would be to see the opera in theater on your computer.
You can see Wagner's Meistersinger von Nurnburg online for $77. Read more about the five hour affair here. And you can see the live premiere at July 27 at 4 p.m. for free at a public viewing in Bayreuth's town square.
Be sure to catch Beethoven's Fidelio this weekend (Saturday at noon) from Los Angeles on KPAC and KTXI. Also Tuesday night at the Opera, with host Ron Moore will have Puccini's Turandot with Nilsson, Scotto and Corelli starting at 8pm.
