While LA Opera awaits its cue to return to live performances onstage, the company has turned to creating an array of online content through the LA Opera On Now initiative. Since the launch of the initiative in March, these popular online offerings have accumulated more than 770,000 views to date.

A major highlight of the week to come is the company's first operatic production since the coronavirus shutdown in the spring: an online stream of The Anonymous Lover by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a Black composer who was a Paris-based contemporary of Mozart and Haydn.

LA Opera proudly presents the online company premiere of a rediscovered operatic treasure: a 1780 comic romance by pioneering Black composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges.
