The site's jam-packed with opera at the moment, but there's more going on as well. Take a look at a few of our picks from the last month.
We've trawled through opera company programmes to find you the most exciting events. Dick and Joe aren't the only composers, although they will be celebrated...
It's not just the big opera houses that are branching out either. Smaller-scale opera is booming, especially in London, and we've spoken to a number of the key players in this area. Something for everyone, from Wagnerites to Britney fans.
Bachtrack had something of a scoop a few weeks back, with what still appears to be the only review available online of the BBC's Young Musician 2012 final. Take a look at Jane Shuttleworth's review from Sage Gateshead here.
In other reviews news: a 50-year anniversary performance of Britten's War Requiem in Coventry Cathedral; an intriguing but problematic John Adams première in Los Angeles; and a spectacular Ravel performance from man of the moment Yannick Nézet-Séguin in Rotterdam.
It's been yet another fascinating month for opera, but it's been 20th- and 21st-century works which have shone the most. We caught Philip Glass and Robert Wilson's landmark work Einstein on the Beach (still touring) in London, a spectacular Wozzeck production from Andreas Kriegenburg in Munich, and a powerful performance of Nico Muhly's Dark Sisters in Philadelphia.
Heavenly: Dutch dance company Introdans made a sensational New York debut, while in London the talk is all about Pina Bausch.
It may be a vile, wet summer but we're British and not to be put off. Great music in fabulous settings. Why not give it a go at Grange Park, Holland Park, Garsington or Glyndebourne?
