Throughout the last year and a half, our song never left—and neither did you.
Opera has been around for a long time (and we really mean a long time). Opera has endured while fires, floods, earthquakes and even wars ravaged its theaters. But opera was still performed while those beloved houses were repaired and rebuilt, because nothing can stop our song.
Once those theaters reopened, they were better and stronger than before. Audiences returned with a renewed love and appreciation of the art form, knowing that opera was always, and will always, be there—regardless of where "there" is—to heal us and bring us together once more.
There was a year and a half gap when our song was not heard in our theater, but as history shows, that doesn't mean it ever stopped (or ever will) when we have supporters like you who keep it alive.
Hear our story, told by the incredible Angela Basset as Opera’s Everywoman. Experience the magical spark of our operatic community coming together again below.
