April 17 would have been the opening night of Orpheus in the Underworld. We are sorry we could not share such a fun production, but we plan to program it in the 21/22 season.

Although we could not be together in person this weekend, we are delighted to share this video recorded by two of our leading Orpheus artists, Jeni Houser and David Blalock. We hope it will give you some musical diversion and a smile.

Jeni and David sang at last summer’s Opera in the Park, and have long histories with Madison Opera. The Wisconsin residents both made their Metropolitan Opera debuts this season, and we are proud to have them in the family.

Please enjoy their singing, and we look forward to the time when we can gather together again.
