Operas in Short
OPERAS IN SHORT presents operas – re-imagined in under an hour – sung by a diverse group of stellar singers who have graced the stages of the world’s premiere opera houses, accompanied by piano and original narration.
Borne out of the necessities of the pandemic, this premiere episode was filmed with each participant entirely in isolation – performing in their homes for you to watch in the comfort of yours.
We’ve collaborated with New York City’s historic Town Hall on our first production – our re-imagination of Verdi’s Otello.
