The LA Opera is looking to add to its current slate of online streaming by including performances of past productions.

The company recently kicked off a series of Living Room Recitals with a number of young artists, but it will now start giving audiences opera showcases, starting with Bizet’s “Carmen” starring Ana María Martinez and Brandon Jovanovich under the music direction of James Conlon. This transmission will take place on Monday, March 30, kicking off the “From the Vault” series that will present other recordings and performances from the LA Opera’s mainstage.

“Our stage might be temporarily quiet, but the beauty, solace and joy of opera can’t be silenced,” said Christopher Koelsch, LA Opera’s President and CEO, in a press release. “This is a moment when it is more important than ever for us to stay connected to each other and the arts.”

Additionally, LA Opera will offer up “Opera to Learn By” and “Opera Family Time” activities for families to engage with. Viewers will also get the behind the scenes treatment with “Backstage at LAO.”
