Verdi’s “Otello” will be live streamed via the Vienna State Opera’s live streaming service on June 20, 2019.

Verdi’s final tragedy will star Aleksandrs Antonenko in his signature role alongside soprano Olga Bezsmertna with Vladislav Sulimsky as Iago. Myung-Whun Chung will conduct a production that will be directed by Adrian Noble.

The stream kicks off at 4 p.m. local time and is slated to run until around 7 p.m. That’s around 11:30 a.m. EDT and 8:30 a.m. PST for the start time.

Per the official website, tickets start at 14 euros (approximately $16 USD) and can be purchased right off the Vienna State Opera’s streaming website. There are options for monthly subscriptions to future performances on the service depending on users’ preference to experience opera from the comfort of their homes.

Next up on the slate of live streams will be “Tosca,” and “Aida.”
