"How exciting to be 'back' programming works by our great masters that reflect the tremendous legacy of grand opera!" said Artistic Director James Harp. "As we have seen during this time of isolation and privation, opera and art have not died but only re-defined themselves as truly immortal! We still crave the pathos of Mimì, the heroism of Brünhilde, the intrigue of Tosca, the bravado of Escamillo, the glamor of Turandot, and the list goes on and on. Join us as we present marvelous and innovative programming sure to touch your hearts and souls!"
