After a long and unsuccessful search to find a new sponsor to finance the monthly copyright fees for swissradio Opera, I am unfortunately forced to suspend the broadcasting on 31 March 2016 after fifteen years. Public Domain Opera will be returned with 100% free content in a few months. I am very sad because I do not have the necessary funds to continues the broadcasting with copyright protected music.
