As Steve has noted, New York's Metropolitan Opera is doing its patriotic part to keep us entertained in lockdown by showing free live-streams of some recent productions.

Go to Nightly Met Opera Streams

The one currently showing, from 7:30pm tonight (Sunday) to 6:30pm tomorrow (Monday) is the 2017 production of Bellini's Norma, with Sondra Radvanovsky, Joyce DiDonato, Joseph Calleja, and Matthew Rose.

I thought I'd mention this because that is the very opera featured in the postscript to that definitive China-Tibet-Wall Street-Italian Opera novel Fire from the Sun.

The aria "Casta Diva" is at 34m30s on the live-stream; "Qual cor tradisti" is at 2h33m35s.
