Opera in Focus

Much better than an insanely expensive night at the Chicago Lyric Opera (especially seeing a dog like "Midsummer Marriage"). But these videos, why no close-ups? It's like standing room at the Met, where you see an animated postage stamp. (The Pearl Fishers clip, by the way, is truncated.) But with the backstory and all, quite moving.

Extremely cool. Whose voices/what recordings are being used?
