Good News Friday from OPERA America

Good News Friday is a monthly space to talk about positive change, share good news from the field, and enjoy a chat with friends and colleagues.

In August, special guests Héctor Armienta, Shadi Ghaheri, and Nicole Paiment joined us for conversation, opera games, and a performance of “Awoke as a Butterfly” from M. Butterfly by Huang Ruo and David Henry Hwang, courtesy of The Santa Fe Opera.

The next Good News Friday is September 25, 2020 at 3:30 PM. Subscribe to OPERA America’s YouTube Channel here.

Light Shall Lift Us

From OPERA America

More than 100 opera singers unite in a song of hope and solidarity for a virtual performance of LIGHT SHALL LIFT US, a large ensemble work created by the Pulitzer Prize-winning team of composer Paul Moravec and librettist/lyricist Mark Campbell. The opera community needs your support now more than ever. Please consider supporting your local opera company or artist relief fund. Visit operaamerica.org/LSLU to learn more about this project. OPERA America would like to thank the artists who lent their voices to this project. They come from all across America and represent a broad variety of backgrounds and experience. Their participation is an example of the vitality and resiliency of our field and a demonstration that even while we are apart, music brings us together.
