Opera is bigger than just our stage

That's why we wanted to bring it directly into your home. We're working on a series of opportunities to help you enjoy all kinds of opera from the comfort of your couch--regardless of your previous experience or knowledge of opera. 

Whether it's live Living Room Recitals, broadcasts of old performances, sing-a-longs for kiddos, or how-to's (for adults) with some of your favorite artists, there are a ton of ways you can #LAOAtHome. Check out what we have for you below, and stay posted for all the new content coming your way.

Learn at home (Grown-Up edition)

What do hospitals and opera have in common? A lot more than you’d think. Today at 2:00 PM PT, our very own Christopher Koelsch and Stacy Brightman will join the luminous Renée Fleming in this week’s episode of “Music and Mind Live.” You can RSVP to the event here and watch their discussion live on our Facebook.

Music & Mind LIVE #12 “What do an opera company and a hospital have in common?"

“What do an opera company and a hospital have in common?" You might be surprised! This week on Music and Mind LIVE with Renée Fleming, we welcome leaders from LA Opera, Houston Methodist Hospital, and Mindful Veteran Project, organizations whose work answers that question. Tune in LIVE on Tues. 8/4 at 5PM ET / 2PM PT! From Los Angeles Opera, President and CEO Christopher Koelsch, and Vice President of LA Opera Connects, Dr. Stacy Brightman, will discuss their innovative uses of opera in the greater community. Gail Soffer, founder of the Mindful Veteran Project, will discuss her organization's work with LA Opera and veterans, including a collaboration where women veterans wrote poetry (later set to music!) about the myth of Eurydice, coinciding with the world premiere of Matt Aucoin’s opera on that subject. And Todd Frazier will join us from Houston Methodist's Center for Performing Arts Medicine - with some additional surprise guests (!) to talk about the direct impact of music in healthcare.
