In case you missed the news, after becoming the first major American opera company to respond to stay-at-home orders by launching an acclaimed series of LA Opera At Home online offerings, the company is now making streaming a permanent part of its programming.
Under the On Now banner, the company will shine the spotlight on new and innovative interpretations of opera that viewers in Los Angeles and beyond can enjoy on screens, even when stay-at-home recommendations are lifted. To date, the company reports more than 750,000 views of its online programming since its launch on March 17, 2020, demonstrating a clear demand for such content.
The newly renamed LA Opera On Now platform will soon expand to include a series of exciting new Digital Shorts commissions as well as a November 14 stream of The Anonymous Lover by Joseph Bologne, the first known Black classical composer.
Additionally, later this month begins a new LA Opera Connects series, a deep dive into the intersections of music, history, literature and science. The series launches on October 22 with an exploration of Wagner's Tannhäuser, and continues on November 7 to focus on Joseph Bologne and The Anonymous Lover.
Saturday, November 14, at 5pm PT— The Anonymous Lover
LA Opera proudly presents the online company premiere of a rediscovered operatic treasure: a 1780 comic romance by pioneering Black composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Conducted by Music Director James Conlon and directed by Bruce A. Lemon, Jr., in a socially distanced stage setting that blends both modern film and traditional opera staging, the performance features singers from the company's young artist program, led by tenor Robert Stahley and soprano Tiffany Townsend. After the initial livestream, the performance will remain available for viewing through November 29.
Tuesday, November 17, at 2pm PT — Opera Family Time
Gather the kids for a fun-filled musical adventure with soprano Jamie Chamberlin and tenor Nathan Granner (and Esther the opera dog!). This week's episode of Sing Out Loud will get everyone ready for Thanksgiving with an uplifting seasonal message about gratitude.

Tenor Joshua Guerrero, bass-baritone Nicholas Brownlee and pianist Christopher Allen (three distinguished alumni of the company's young artist program) team up for a program of arias and scenes from Carmen, La Boheme and Das Rheingold. Presented in partnership with the Colburn School.
