Announcing Madison Opera’s digital fall!
Although the Overture Center for the Arts is closed for public performances until the end of November, we will not be going silent.
We are creating a fall season that lasts from September through December, and includes both digital content and live performances at the Margaret C. Winston Madison Opera Center, our home in downtown Madison.
Some of our signature engagement activities, such as Opera Novice and Opera Up Close, will have monthly editions that include artists from around the country. The Opera Center itself will be the site of “Live from the Opera Center,” a variety of streamed performances with a small live audience. Other performances will be created digitally and made available exclusively to subscribers.
Artists involved include members of the original Il Trovatore cast: soprano Karen Slack, baritone Weston Hurt, bass Kenneth Kellogg, and stage director Fenlon Lamb. Other soloists include Wisconsin-based artists Jeni Houser, David Blalock, Emily Fons, Emily Secor, and Kirsten Larson.
We are working with our artists to create programming that is chosen from their passions: music they want to share, ideas they want to explore, and conversations they want to start. The challenges facing us will create new art, and new ways to make sure it is accessible to everyone. We can’t wait to share it with you!
