Medici.TV is ready to give opera fans a healthy offering of their preferred art form this summer.

The streaming service, which lists performances for free replays for the first 90 days after a live broadcast will showcase major opera performances from some of the biggest venues this summer.

It all kicks off Thursday, July 6, 2017, with a showing of “Hamlet” from the Glyndebourne Festival. The opera is garnering rave reviews for its portrayal of the Bard’s famed play and is already getting remarked as the best operatic adaptation to date.

That event will be followed with a stream straight from the Festival d’Aix-En-Provence of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” on July 10, 2017. That stream, which kicks off at 9:30 p.m. local time, features Philippe Sly in the title role and Opera star Isabel Leonard in her first run as Donna Elvira.

While there will also be showcases from the Verbier Festival and some performances from some Youth orchestras in the US, opera fans will get a chance to see the grand finale of the Operalia Competition on Saturday, July 29, 2017.

There will also be broadcasts from the Salzburg Festival, which are sure to include some major operatic productions.
