The Metropolitan Opera now has a free App for iPads available on their site allowing easy access their range of operas available on HD video. An extension of their earlier Video on Demand system, it also provides access to some 250 audio recordings of operas from their library. They will have available the operas broadcast live during the current season but a few months after their appearance at the cinema. Costs range from $3.99 for a single opera to $149.00 for an entire year. Operas on video include historic like La Bohème with Pavarotti and Renata Scotto and a Rigoletto with Domingo and Contrubas from 1977. The audio recordings start with a 1936 Götterdämmerung with Lauritz Melchoir and Marjorie Lawrence.
