Opera launches complete digital archive

Opera, one of the world’s leading opera magazines, has announced the launch of its complete 66 year archive in conjunction with Exact Editions.

Previously, ten years of back issues had been available, but as of today leading institutions including universities, government departments, colleges and libraries will be able to instantly access all issues, dating back to 1950, via the app and online. This enables users to browse issues on their preferred device, with IP authentication allowing institutional access both on and off site.

Exact Editions’ in-depth search technology means that users can get the most out of this resource, says the company. They can search the for a term across a specific issue, year, decade or the whole archive, and then also bookmark the relevant pages.

With the launch of this archive, readers can explore over half a century’s worth of first-class analysis, reviews and insightful features covering all aspects of the world of opera, say the publishers.

Exact Editions’ Managing Director, Daryl Rayner, said: “We are pleased to work with Opera to offer individuals and institutions access to such a fantastic archive which truly impresses upon the reader how Opera has been, and continues to be, unrivalled in its field.”

Opera’s Editor, John Allison, said: “After 66 years of continuous publishing Opera has an immensely rich archive, and we are delighted to work with Exact Editions to offer readers this valuable and fully searchable research tool: it really is now the best resource in the operatic world.”
