Discussing The State of American Opera with Alaysha Fox and Jeremy Frank

In this new podcast series, we explore elements of American opera—production and reception histories, social contexts, historical valences, and more—through our artist and scholar community.

In this episode, LA Opera's Alaysha Fox hosts Chorus Director Jeremy Frank for a discussion about the unique roots and qualities of American Opera as well as their shared excitement about Omar, an opera by Rhiannon Giddens and Michael Abels opening at LA Opera this October.

Tickets to Omar and the rest of LA Opera's 22-23 season are available now at
