I just saw https://www.digitalconcerthall.com/en/concert/204 and it sounds and even looks amazing. Truly a treasure trove.

Truly amazing especially the 2nd part(Molto vivace).

With the virus circulating around now everyone is affected, but the overwhelming majority of people never has physical access to this sort of content. Some countries have well financed public broadcasters, but it would probably be worth expanding this stuff across national borders.

Asking to play it works across all major devices and platforms.
It's pretty old-school but I've found the schedule pretty up-to-date. I've also noticed that some of the programs aren't opera per se but "opera adjacent", like choral music or instrumental music by opera composers. My impression is that there are some programs that regularly stream operas but at any given week might offer something else.
My sense is that there's a lot of opportunity for a well-done classical streaming service. A lot of the traditional channels don't quite work because their catalogue isn't deep enough or their metadata structures are weird and unhelpful (for example, it's impossible to sort by composer alone).
I'm now watching Das Rheingold without having had to provide payment details or the like, though I did have to create a user account (just username/password). Mind you, some mightn't find that as... err.... exciting as some other options... but for me it will do just fine for now.
I've never understood why people selectively allow broad context for most things, except for some pet subjects. The label programmers vs developers vs engineers is a good example, when the majority of people know what you're referring to. Making the distinction insignificant far more often than not.
Edit: Do you think Google really has 1700 "engineers" working on the coronavirus testing website? (probably not, that likely includes UX, designers, management, etc). Does it matter to the expected audience? (no).
I read the project got 1,700 volunteer applications, not actual commitments.
1: My apologies if that song got stuck in your head now. Give the Laibach cover a listen if you want it out of there.
Slightly less off-topic, I have been listening to lots of classical music over the years - in no small part because of a music teacher in secondary school who didn't just put on a record to let us know what, say, Beethoven, Händel or Shostakovich sounded like, but rather brimmed with (genuine) enthusiasm and a heartfelt joy of being able to share this great music with us.
The enthusiasm was contagious.
