Welcome to the Student StudySpace for The Story of Opera. This site is designed to help you locate audio and video recordings of the operas treated in the text. Operas are listed in the order in which they are treated in the book. Each entry shows full productions that are available (as of summer 2012) from Amazon, Netflix, the Naxos Video Library, Met Opera on Demand, and Alexander Street (Opera in Video), along with the individual scenes and numbers from Metropolitan Opera productions that are available on the Norton Opera Sampler.
