Frequently Asked Questions

What does the domain name stand for?

We don’t have an answer for that one. It is easy to remember, so that’s why we used it. Some of the more appropriate sounding domains (like say, openopera.org) are held by domain brokers asking prohibitively expensive prices for them. We didn’t want to let the name get in the way of the goals of the project, since it is the project that matters and not the domain name.

What are the goals of the project?

The goal of the project is to allow opera fans and people interested in becoming opera fans an outlet to share music that has mostly been unavailable to anyone who doesn’t have a giant dusty old record collection. And to provide a way for people with giant dusty old record collections to share their passion and love of the forgotten music and stars of the past. You can read more on our about page

What do I have to do to join?

Just sign up. It’s all free and always will be.

Is it hard to put my vinyl collection on my computer?

We’d be lying if we said it didn’t have some work associated with it. However, there is no law that says you have to upload an entire collection in one sitting. You also can just listen to what other people share. It’s all up to you.

Do you comply with the DMCA and copyright laws?

We do. We respond to DMCA notices and comply with them 100%. Anyone with questions can email us at dmca@9gb.com.

Who started this project?

The project was created by Regina Fiorito as a way of sharing her passion for operatic art and a desire to create a platform that would pay more attention to classical music than terrestrial radio has.
