SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM ON SITE OPERA
The global impact of COVID-19 has hit every sector of the economy and every facet of our lives. The impact on the performing arts industry has been staggering and we will feel the effects in the weeks, months, and likely the years ahead. We are heart-warmed to see the tremendous show of support from within and without the opera community as artists and arts organizations seek innovative ways to share, teach, create, perform, and survive during this unprecedented and indefinite period of isolation. We encourage artists to keep creating and we will continue to share resources to help you find your footing. We encourage our audiences and patrons to continue supporting the arts as a bedrock of our cultural identity and societal strength. At On Site Opera, we have daily conversations internally to consider how best to fulfill our mission, serve our artists and audiences, and innovate within the opera art form in the immediate and long-term future. To begin, we welcome you to join us through virtual opera-based activities until we can gather together again for live performances. Please see below to learn what we are doing these days…

 

LIVE “WATCH PARTIES” & VIDEO STREAMING OF OUR PAST PRODUCTIONS!

Starting in mid-March, On Site Opera invites you to join us for live-streamed “watch parties” on our Facebook page (click here to visit). Each Monday at noon, we will show the video of one of our past site-specific opera productions, followed by a live Q&A with On Site Opera’s General & Artistic Director, Eric Einhorn. These archival videos will remain on our company’s YouTube page for public viewing through the end of April.
