On Site Opera has announced that it will be hosting a series of livestreams over the coming weeks, featuring past performances of the company.
The organization will also be streaming town hall-style discussion for audiences to discuss the challenges in the performing arts during the current epidemic.
Works to be streamed include
John Musto and Eric Einhorn’s “Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt” on March 23.
Then audiences can check out Jean Phillippe Rameau and Ballot De Sauvot’s “Pygmalion” on March 30 followed by Mozart’s “The Secret Gardener” on April 6.
Michi Wiancko and Deborah Brevoort’s “Murasaki’s Moon” concludes the series on April 13.
Each weekly stream will begin at 12:00 p.m. EST on the company’s website and Facebook page, and will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session with company General and Artistic Director Eric Einhorn.
“As we face tremendous uncertainty, what we need more than anything right now is a sense of community, a sense of inspiration, and a sense of hope,” Einhorn said in a press release. “It is important to us as an organization to keep opera audiences connected to the art form that they love and offer resources to our community that not only entertain, but educate and support. Let’s keep talking, let’s keep creating, and let’s keep singing.”
