We are so excited to introduce our newest blog series, Off Book: Candid Conversations with Opera Professionals. Read and watch professionals from around the country and around the world provide pragmatism, context, and encouragement to emerging Orange County artists about the sometimes-tough-sometimes-awesome realities of an operatic career today. With artists from the stages of LA Opera, Washington National Opera, Welsh National Opera, The Glimmerglass Festival, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Chautauqua Opera, Opera Tennessee, Fort Worth Opera, and Carnegie Hall, we are beyond elated to share these intimate conversations and demonstrations with the world.
