For 2 weeks, a concert performance of Lucia di Lammermoor, first streamed live last week from Munich, is available online.

It is conducted by Jesus Lopez-Cobos, and the soprano and tenor are luxury casting for this opera: Diana Damrau and Joseph Calleja. I saw some of it during the initial stream, and enjoyed them both very much indeed -- to me he is a most welcome throwback to the phrase-caressing, melody-molding tenors of times past (including their lightly flickering, but to my ears attractive and healthy, vibrato).

Two participants of special interest: Veteran soprano Marie McLaughlin as Lucia's confidante Alisa, and the use of glass harmonica (Donizetti's original intention) rather than flute for the mad scene.
