Festival Opera: Behind the Mask
Festival Opera is thrilled to bring you our new video interview and podcast series, Behind the Mask, demystifying what makes truly engaging opera productions. Artists and collaborators share their stories of blood, sweat, tears, and triumphs in navigating performance careers and their unexpected paths to full-on love affairs with classical music. We embrace creating a platform for discussing current social issues in the context of opera as an industry - exploring the impact of COVID-19, and humanizing the arts. Join us for these approachable, inclusive, humorous, candid conversations - it’s OPERA, UNMASKED.
