I know some members are opera fans - and wanted to make you aware of a website I think you'll appreciate. It's called OperaBase.
I found it via the BBC's 'Click' site, which says:
Operabase.com is a database of all the operatic information you could hope for. On the opening page select your language - a nice touch for those not wanting to surf in English - and it is currently being translated into 20 languages!
As a database tool this website boasts the ability to search the details of over 35,000 opera performances since August 2005.
Search by either performance, artiste or company using the links in the left hand panel, then fill in the search criteria accordingly.
A nice touch when searching for names is the "sounds like" option, since you may have just heard the name mentioned on the radio and not caught it properly.
