Opera is no longer reserved to the privileged audiences having the possibility to attend performances in an opera house. By broadcasting productions live either to cinemas, TV programs or to the Internet, companies widen their audience in an unprecedented manner. The latest opera house to announce the broadcasting to cinemas is the English National Opera. After the Met, the Bolshoi, the Royal Opera House and some more, ENO is bringing productions to screens, starting with Peter Grimes on 23 February next year. The second opera in the current season to be broadcast is Terry Gilliam’s new production of Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini in June 2014. From autumn 2014, the plan is for five or six productions a year to be screened.
