Quarantine Opera: Creating musical community in a pandemic

Now more than ever, we can see how fragile it is to not have this entrepreneurial mindset in your toolset, ready to spring out when times suddenly change as massively and abruptly as they have this year.

Besides the extraordinary situation we are in right now, we also have the issue of the regular opera audience getting older and smaller.
