Opera OnDemand

This event has passed. Please check our performance calendar regularly for new offerings.

Featuring scenes from Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amoreDon Pasquale, and Anna Bolena; Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro; Verdi’s La traviata and Rigoletto; Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi; and Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri.

The Curtis Opera Theatre is proud to present Opera OnDemand. Opera OnDemand will feature ten duet scenes from beloved Italian operas reimagined for the virtual stage. Students have prepared and recorded their performances using green screens in their own living spaces, which have been individually optimized for each scene. Highly-skilled production staff have edited video together so it appears two singers are interacting on the same stage, even from as far apart as Switzerland or Malta. Unlike video projects that resemble a concert over Zoom, the scenes are conceived, directed, and performed as if both singers were in the same room.

Add yourself to our virtual stage as well and enjoy Opera OnDemand for free!
