Met "opera on demand" to add Lepage Ring Cycle on Oct 30

If you have not managed to catch Lepage's "controversial" Ring Cycle yet - either live, at the cinema, on DVD or on TV - you can now do so via another source: The Met's online Opera on Demand service.

Relayed in HD it will be available from October 30th. Alas, this is not for free. To watch you have a number of options: you can either "rent" each production for 30 days for $3.99 per drama or take out a subscription to their entire available opera - in video and audio. Of course, if you have not previously subscribed either monthly or yearly to the MET's online streaming service you could watch the entire cycle for free  - as they offer a 7 day free trial.

Wagner's Dream, - the documentary of the making of Lepage's Ring is already available.
