Currently, our expenses only include hosting and domain costs. However, hundreds of hours have been spent on tracking down scores, cataloging, writing code, and creating PDFs. If you find yourself using the site frequently, please consider donating a few dollars to help support it. Every bit helps.
We can use help with nearly every aspect of the site. If you're interested in any of the following, send us an email.
Linking operas with Wikipedia pages, libretti, synopses, translations, etc. If quality time with spreadsheets and databases is your cup of tea, let us know.
Nearly every one of the 2,700 PDFs on this site has been made by hand. If you're intensely curious about that one aria from Rossini's Demetrio e Polibio, this might be for you.
The PHP I wrote to search the database is woefully inefficient. If optimizing MySQL queries sounds like something you enjoy, please let us know.
I'd like to start contacting living composers and requesting PDFs of their arias to feature on the site. If you are a persuasive people person, here's your chance to use those skills.
There are many full scores and manuscripts available that have no typeset public domain source. If you're handy with an engraving program, we can use your help!
