Watch "The MasterSingers of Nuremburg" live online from Bayreuth, Germany

Germany's annual opera festival devoted to the works of Richard Wagner has set a price and it's a high one — $77.

The festival will show opera live online for the first time during the performance of Die Meistersinger (The MasterSingers of Nuremberg) that opens the event July 27.

Only 10,000 will be able to sign up for the online video. There will also be a free viewing in the Bayreuth public square.

The concept is a new twist for the opera world, where companies are looking for ways to develop young audiences.
