The naysayers who cheerfully predict the demise of classical music must have missed the memo (or tweet) about the Metropolitan Opera’s Live television broadcasts.
Since their inception in 2006, this tiny little hope for the best experiment has blossomed into a 65-country, 2000-theatre, $40-million-dollar-a year juggernaut. Classical music dead? Tell the tens of thousands of people from Australia, the Czech Republic, Argentina, Latvia, Puerto Rico, New Zealand or right here in Canada who line up to see operas in their local theatres. The Met’s HD Live program is one of the great (and unexpected) success stories in all of music history.
