In great news for anyone looking to watch opera online -- bad news for your productivity in areas other than watching opera online -- La Monnaie is going to stream all of this season's productions online. You have already missed the first production, Cherubini's Médée, but we will try to do a better job of letting you know in the future. The online video can be viewed, after the final performance of each production, for a period of three weeks. [De Munt]

  • Pianist Wilhem Latchoumia plays a program in tribute to John Cage, in the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord. [France Musique]

  • In addition to lots of Liszt in our ears this fall, it is turning out to be an Ives autumn. With the Post-Classical Ensemble's Ives Project coming to Strathmore next month, Hilary Hahn's CD of four Ives sonatas is out. Alex Ross has a clip. [The Rest Is Noise]

  • From the Louvre, pianist Jean-Frédéric Neuburger plays a recital, including music by Liszt. [France Musique]

  • With hat tip to Alex Ross, here is a comprehensive list of opera broadcasts on the Internet. [Operacast]
