Opera Wire came about as a desire to explore opera and allow its passionate fan base access to everything this wondrous art form has to offer. On a daily basis we will offer the latest news from around the world while also providing readers with greater insight through interviews with prominent artists, reviews and other detailed features.

Our Opera Notes section will provide readers with daily news, previews for upcoming performances and other major announcements from the world’s greatest operas and companies. We will feature interviews with top artists, rising stars and the magicians that work behind the scenes to bring opera lovers the great experiences they cherish in our Stage Spotlight and Behind the Scenes sections while Indie Opera will provide news, interviews and other highlights from the grassroots opera scene around the world. High Notes will be dedicated to special features and analysis on great works and artists of the operatic canon. Finally, we will feature our own Reviews for major performances and CD and DVD/Blu-Ray releases.

Prior to starting this company, we both had the opportunity of covering opera at Latin Post, where we interviewed such prominent stars as Placido Domingo, Anna Netrebko, Diana Damrau, Vittorio Grigolo and Kristine Opolais among many others.

We want to thank all of our readers and look forward to your feedback in hopes of making Opera Wire a destination for those that love this art form as much as we do. And for those that do not, we hope that we can help cultivate the same passion that we have seen grow over the years.
