Why doesn't Netflix Instant have any operas?
The Mikado doesn't count?
re: Netflix not having operas? That's what YouTube is for. :)
How about we start with New Releases? The streaming part of Netflix is not good at all!!
RT I don't know whybut it should! Why doesn't Netflix Instant have any operas?
it's called Netflix, not Netopera :)
maybe you can take care of that for us opera lovers!?

RT Why doesn't Netflix Instant have any operas? ll And why aren't there more on Blu Ray?
...Works by Gibert and Sullivan have been available in the past.
Yeah! I wanna see La Traviata again.
Maybe they think that Soap Operas count...

You'll have to wait for their new service Librettster.
the Met has a great subscription service on their site to stream operas in HD. But it's pricey.
Chicago via St. Louis
Carrying operas would take away bandwidth from the 35th American Pie sequels. #priorities
Because they are money-grubbing bottom-line idiots that should not be in business anymore.
A good question. I'd love to see some. RT : Why doesn't Netflix Instant have any operas?
I said the same thing a few months ago! Practically no classical content at all.
it has the phantom of the opera :)
kinda sucks as far a streaming movies. Their selection isn't ad great as I'd hoped.
Really? .....Operas on Netflix? Watch Lexx instead! It will mesmerize u! Lol Fascinating ol' show
good question. Hoping the power of twitter will make this happen.

Unfortunately the tenor came down with a case of Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, and the alto met a Hobo with a Shotgun.
Why doesn't Netflix have all your Siskel and Ebert shows?
NYC, but not the fancy part.
Filmed ballets are even harder to come across than operas.
Appealing to Lowest Common Denominator, perhaps? has a wonderful online player to which you can subscribe
because operas havent been made for 50 years and 50% of the download traffic is for Harry Potter and Twilight.

HAA HA HAAA HAHAHA HAAAAA HAAAA HAHAHAHAAAAAH HAAAH HAAAH HAAAAH HAAAHAHAHAAAA *wheezing* HAAAA HAAAAH HAAAH HAHAHAAH
because a majority of their subscriber base couldn't care less about operas
Because they are a total bore! That's right, I said it!
There are some on DVD at Netflix. Add just 1-out-at-a-time and have more options.
Country Music's Valhalla
Bad business model. Everybody knows it's all over when the fat lady streams.
No Operas on Netflix? Sadly the 3 that would watch not enough as Netflix runs there Corp. Into ground. E
Netflix streaming is very short on musicals as well.
same reason that videogames can never be art. I've never seen an opera, but I know with 100% certainty that I'd hate it.
I think Netflix has "The Genetic Opera". I doubt that's what you meant though. #smh
'#Repo: The Genetic Opera' is on there. I know its not a classic, but it has to score some points for being made this century.
Netflix has some operas both on disc and streaming but selection could be better. Why are they missing some Criterion discs?
Because opera is the red headed stepchild of music that will never get any REAL respect and...not enough demand.
having worked there till a yr ago I can say they looked @ DVD usage and saw little/no interest.
That would be nice. Also, their selection of Kung Fu movies is not great. What? I have eclectic tastes. They'll listen to you.
It does have the operatic anthology "Aria," with segments from Godard, Altman, etc.
Netflix has Benjamin Britten's Peter Grimes (DVD).
that's simply unacceptable. how can they do that? opera is wonderful!
I hope you're being sarcastic? Because if not, your "opera hasn't been made for 50 years" comment is appalling and uneducated. Than again, it is no more so than half the other comments on this thread...
This isn't Netflix, but Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music puts on some absolutely wonderful productions. I just went to see The Merry Widow last night, and it was incredible! For every opera and ballet, they stream two shows live. Tonight is the second for The Merry Widow. After the live streaming, a short while after (I think a week or two after the last show) it's up to view at your leisure for a while. Free, no membership required
