7. How do I personalize my “lyricothèque” ? (Opera library)

Opera Online community

By registering with Opera Online, you have access to several options reserved for members, including the personalization of your “lyricothèque”.

This opera library allows you to compose your personal list of productions to see in the upcoming seasons (so that you can plan your opera season) by checking the box “I wish to see this production” on the page of each production.

The same type of options (for past productions in an opera house) allow you to reference productions you have attended and/or of which you have a recording so that you can keep a record of your musical travels or reference collections of opera recordings (DVD or CD).
