Tomorrow (Sunday 27 May) evening's performance of Giulio Cesare will be streamed from Salzburg by ARTE TV - and you can watch it right here.
Or on ARTE's own website if you prefer.
The new Leiser and Caurier production - photos here - features Andreas Scholl as Giulio Cesare, Cecilia Bartoli as Cleopatra, Anne Sofie von Otter as Cornelia, Philippe Jaroussky as Sesto and Christophe Dumaux as Tolomeo.
The live performance begins at 17:00 CET, and the streaming at 20:42 (7.42pm UK time). The video will remain available on demand for 2 months.
Warning - may not be available in all countries.
As this year's Salzburg Whitsun Festival kicks off, the first under Cecilia Bartoli's artistic leadership, the details of next year's programme have been revealed.
The theme is Sacrifice. Or should that be Controversy? The centrepiece is Norma, with Bartoli in the title role. Read the programme to find out why she thinks Norma is really a mezzo.
Leiser and Caurier direct and a new critical edition of the score has been produced, reinstating old cuts and implementing some of Bellini's annotations.
More controversy - La Ceci will also perform in Brahms' Deutsches Requiem alongside Rene Pape and Daniel Barenboim's West Eastern Divan Orchestra.
To round off the weekend, Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky perform an all-Stravinsky programme, and Andras Schiff gives a recital.
Most singers with a job on the side say they wear two hats. Cecilia Bartoli sees her joint role as star and artistic director of the Salzburg Whitsun Festival in more intimate terms.
Responding to Anna Netrebko's late withdrawal she said “For the first time in my career, I feel two hearts beat in my breast: the familiar singer’s heart, and the new heart of the artistic director. Who, if not I as a singer, can understand better how Anna feels? Due to an illness, one is forced to disappoint the audience and cancel an important concert. At such moments, one feels miserable and lonely…"
Mojca Erdmann will now take Netrebko's place in the world premiere of Rodion Shchedrin’s Cleopatra and the Snake – a piece she must learn in two days. La Ceci herself will add bonus star power to the evening with two Mozart works - on top of a solo recital and two five-hour Giulio Cesare performances - all in four days. Now that's dedication.
Anyone around Austria way can watch a recording of Giulio Cesare on 28 May on the ORF2 channel.

While Egypt gets its first taste of democracy, guests at Salzburg's Whitsun Festival will be treated to a taste of Egypt. After they've watched Cecilia Bartoli as Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare in Egitto on 27 May, the privileged section of the audience who stumped up the €€€ will decamp to the splendid Karl-Böhm-Saal for an Egyptian feast. Traditional Egyptian music will accompany the goat cheese-stuffed dates, pita bread and tahini, and belly dancer Nabila has been recruited for the purpose of "spreading oriental flair".
Forget the traditional spaghetti - this opens up a whole raft of opera-themed dinner possibilities. How about a nice platter of Schwartenmagen after your Salome for starters?
