Later offerings this week include an all-star
Eugene Onegin with Anna Netrebko, Piotr Beczała, and Mariusz Kwiecień, as well as two compraatively vintage streams: a 1988 Il Trovatore with Eva Marton and Luciano Pavarotti and—as requested by viewers' vote—a 1999 Tristan und Isolde with Ben Heppner and Jane Eaglen in the title roles.

The free streams are available starting at 7:30 PM ET each night at MetOpera.org for 23 hours each.
