What's Next for Opera?

Everyone who is interested in opera has an opinion on the question 'What's Next for Opera?'. The American not-for-profit the National Institute of Social Sciences (NISS) is hosting a webinar on the subject on 23 September 2021 which draws together luminaries from the opera world including soprano Angel Blue (who is a trustee of NISS), mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves (who needs no introduction), counter-tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo (who appeared in English National Opera's recent production of Philip Glass' Akhnaten), James Robinson (former General Director of Opera Theatre St. Louis), David Lomeli (artistic administrator of the Santa Fe Opera and casting director of Bayerische Staatsoper) and moderator Marc Scorca (CEO of Opera America). 

The webinar will cover the future of opera, innovation in opera, safety as we move forward with live performances, and "to stream or not to stream” in addition to other items and listener questions and discussion.

Angel Blue stars in Terence Blanchard's Fire Shut Up in My Bones at the Metropolitan Opera in New York on 27 September 2021, directed by James Robinson and Camille A Brown. This will be the the first opera by a Black composer ever performed by the Met. 

The webinar takes place at 12pm, EST which is 5pm UK time. Full details from the webinar registration page.
