RWVI Website:

Wagner Operas on the Internet:

The are a number of websites (particularly ) where one can watch complete operas on demand and free of charge on the internet.

Of particular interest is the website which is is currently (until 31/10/2017) showing the Dutch National Opera production of Die Walküre, with Thomas J Mayer, Christopher Ventris, Catherine Foster  and Catherine Naglestad.  Also available are the Wiener Staatsoper productions of Parsifal and (from May 6) Götterdämmerung.
