Cincinnati Opera to Move Forward with ‘Plan B’ For 2021 Season

By Francisco Salazar

The Cincinnati Opera has announced that it will move forward with its 2021 season but in a different way.

The company revealed that it will push forward a “Plan B” which excludes performances at its normal indoor location.

In a statement, the company’s representatives noted that, “we’ve made the difficult decision to set aside our original plans and move forward with ‘Plan B.’ For the past several months, we’ve been investigating performance venues throughout the region that can accommodate both socially-distanced seating outside and beautiful, high-quality opera performances onstage. We have two primary goals: to keep everyone safe and to present a must-see summer opera festival. We could not be more excited to share our plan with you as soon as it’s complete.”

The Cincinnati Opera plans on announcing its full slate at the end of March, a program that promises to be “one of a kind.”
