By David Salazar

Michigan Opera Theatre has launched MOT at Home, a programming campaign aimed to provide daily opera and dance content to the community during this time of social distancing.

Among the programs on offer are “Opera Fix,” Studio Artist Performances, Met Opera Preview, and Podcast. “Opera Fix” includes blogs, recordings, fun facts, and other activities related to the world of opera, while the Met Opera preview hosts a Facebook live talk about an upcoming performance on the Met’s Nightly Opera Stream.

Additionally, Michigan Opera Theatre artists are expected to take over the company’s Instagram account to show an in-depth look at the life of opera opera singer.

“During this time of social distancing, Michigan Opera Theatre seeks to serve and remain connected with our loyal supporters who value our shared love of opera, dance and other performing arts,” said MOT President and CEO Wayne S. Brown in a press release. “Although we are unable at the moment to provide live performances for you in the Detroit Opera House, we hope the digital performances and informative content of ‘MOT at Home’ may be a source of inspiration, comfort and hope.”

Those interested in the diverse program can check out the company’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram social media accounts.
