The Robinson Music Library blog is starting a new occasional series featuring the various all-star databases available to you as a member of the CIM family.
We’ve already discussed how to access these resources from off-campus using VPN or Virtual Private Network.
Today we are featuring Opera in Video, one of Alexander Street Press’ Music Online offerings.
Watch entire operas from the comfort of your own home. Opera in Video offers 291 different works for a total of 500+ hours of streaming. For instance, 2 different versions of Haensel und Gretel (CIM’s spring opera) can be viewed. A synopsis can be found as well as interviews with the conductor and director of the Covent Garden version. Wow!
You can even stream the video to your mobile device by clicking on the mobile phone icon near each listing.
To get to the link to this and other streaming music databases, go to the Robinson Music Library homepage and click on the LISTEN tab on the right-hand side of the page. You’ll find a number of links to many of the databases we offer which will be featured in future Database Dandies! blog posts. Stay tuned!
