Sky Arts to broadcast live opera from Glyndebourne
Sky Arts has also acquired television distribution rights to show the Glyndebourne opera series for the next four years.
That's high quality German and Italian opera, in the original language including subtitles. And Handel's Giulio Cesare is quite an obscure opera at that.
If Sky can do it without subsidy, we don't need the BBC to provide it by forcing single mothers to cough up for it.
I rather like that Sky and Glyndebourne have done this, seeing how neither of them depends on the state (Glyndebourne receives arts funding to do some touring, but if that was cut, they'd survive quite happily in their current location).
