LA Opera Announces Partnership with Marquee TV

By Francisco Salazar

Marquee TV has announced an exclusive partnership with LA Opera.

LA Opera will begin its partnership with the streaming platform adding a rare performance of Joseph Bologne’s “The Anonymous Lover” to Marquee TV’s catalog on March 27. The company will then add more offerings in the future.

In a press statement, Kathleya Afanador, co-founder of Marquee TV and Head of Content said, “We couldn’t have picked a timelier production with which to launch our partnership with LA Opera. ‘The Anonymous Lover’ is so representative of forgotten stories and erased voices that, when recovered, deserve a wide-reaching audience. We’re so pleased to welcome LA Opera onto the Marquee TV platform and to showcase this production.”

According to Christopher Koelsch, LA Opera’s Sebastian Paul and Marybelle Musco President and CEO, “This presentation of ‘The Anonymous Lover’ gives us many reasons for celebration. An unjustly neglected piece long overdue for a return to the opera stage, the opera reminds us that artists of color have created, performed and worked in the field of classical music for centuries, too often facing insurmountable odds. I’m thrilled to partner for the first time with Marquee TV to share this remarkable work to a wide audience and help bring it back to its rightful place in the repertoire.”
