Your interaction with a given opera production need not begin when the curtain goes up and end when it goes down again. Thanks to the internet, it's possible to follow along with the process of bringing an opera to the stage, from the first rehearsal to the closing night party.
This spring, the opportunities are particularly rich, with many members of the casts and creative teams of Cinderella, Ariadne auf Naxos, and Orfeo ed Euridice blogging and tweeting their way to opening night. Here's a roundup:
