When the pandemic hit, music creators and producers had to figure out new, visually compelling ways to present opera and other stage works in the digital space. As part of New York Music Month Extended Play, an initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, join us for a conversation about turning operas into full-fledged film productions with film sets, soundtrack recording sessions, and directors. Genre-bending composers David T. Little (Soldier Songs) and Angelica Negron (The Island We Made), and visionary opera producers Sarah Williams (Opera Philadelphia) and Beth Morrison (Beth Morrison Projects) will discuss re-envisioning the production process, as well as the creative possibilities that open up when you turn traditional performance into film.
Watch film operas by David T. Little and Angélica Negrón on the Opera Philadelphia Channel. Use promo code NYMM to save $10 on "Soldier Songs" or on a Digital Commissions Bundle.
