Described (in The Daily Telegraph) as ‘the bible of the industry’, OPERA has been the world’s leading commentator on the lyric stage for more than 70 years.

The iPad/iPhone edition brings you selected pages from the latest issue as soon as it is available. You can subscribe within the application for full access, which brings you every page of the issue and a complete searchable archive back to the first issue from February 1950. Issues are not sold individually - for the duration of your subscription you have access to every issue in this archive.

During your subscription you can sync back issues to your device. These will remain in place if your subscription expires, unless your device removes them (for example when running low on disk space). Re-downloading issues requires a current subscription.

• Swipe or tap the page edges to flip to next/previous page.
• Use the animated thumbnail view to flick through the pages.
• Pinch or double-tap pages to zoom.
• Switch between single or double-page view.
• Search the current issue or the archive.
• Tap any page links to web sites, email addresses, phone numbers or maps.
• Tap contents-page links to jump to a particular article.
• Sync back issues to your device for offline reading (requires wi-fi).
• Network connection required otherwise.
• Social media sharing feature allowing you to share pages with friends.
• If your institution has a magazine subscription, you can access it directly from within your registered IP range.

We recommend first running the app within a wi-fi area so it can sync the latest issue to your device - after that you can use it anywhere. Subscribers will receive new issues automatically.

Subscriptions are available within the app at the following prices:

£5.99 per month
£64.99 per year

In addition, please note the following standard features of auto-renewable subscriptions:

• Your payment will be charged to your Apple Account at confirmation of purchase.
• Subscriptions will renew automatically unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period.
• Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period.
• You can manage your subscriptions and turn off auto-renewal by going to your Apple Account Settings after purchase.
• No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.

Excellent alternative to the paper version

If you regularly read this magazine and use this app on the iPad I'd say this is a great alternative. A quid cheaper than the paper version, (when you pay per issue), the pages the same size and all content and pictures in very high definition. Ok the pages take a couple of seconds to download the first time each issue, but then they're crystal clear and fast to turn over. You also get access to several years with of back issues! I'd recommend, personally.

This lousy app shows a just few slow-loading pages before requiring payment for the issue
A useless and inadequate preview
Publisher should either allow viewing of a full issue before requiring a subscription or dump this app in the trash where it belongs

Cannot even download

I have been sent a subscription as a birthday present but the app won't open when downloaded and no reply from the support team - so hard to recommend
