Here's a nice counterpart to the huge mass of pop music videos offered online -- streaming live and archived videos of the performing arts. At the site, visitors will find hours of video-on-demand of opera, theatre, concerts, plays, dance, and musicals, and new and live broadcasts are added each week. The video selections are organized by performance type (opera, other vocal, orchestral, plays, dance), and most are offered in multiple connection speeds, though only those with broadband connections are likely to get the most out of the site. Even with a fast connection playback was less than optimal on most of the selections we viewed. The site states that "at the moment" all content is free. If this remains the case and if the site can improve playback quality, it has the potential to become a major resource for teachers and students as well as fans of the performing arts.
