Media accessibility is beginning to have some presence in the world of leisure. Through legislation some countries such as the UK and the USA have made accessibility compulsory on TV and in cultural and artistic life. Other countries are following suit with the slow implementation of accessibility which has an eclectic presence. This is the case of one of the supposedly least popular music performances: opera. This article looks at the different schemes and tests which have taken place at the Catalan Opera House, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, to make opera accessible for all.
