If you think it's tough sticking to an exclusive diet of HD content, try being a fan of opera (the genre, not the browser
, silly). Not many towns can even consider supporting an opera company, and scheduling and pricing cuts out another swath of interested folks in markets that do have an opera company. The Metropolitan Opera
company has enjoyed success
showing HD productions of its performances in theaters
worldwide, and is now branching out to even more markets with PBS. The performances will appear underneath the "Great Performances" banner, so check your local listings if you're interested. We promise we won't tell your sports-fanatic crew you broke out the wine and cheese and peeped some opera!
