OPERA IS BIGGER THAN JUST OUR STAGE
That's why we wanted to bring it directly into your home. We're working on a series of opportunities to help you enjoy all kinds of opera from the comfort of your couch--regardless of your previous experience or knowledge of opera.
Whether it's live Living Room Recitals, broadcasts of old performances, sing-a-longs for kiddos, or how-to's (for adults) with some of your favorite artists, there are a ton of ways you can #LAOAtHome.ecital
One of the major artists of our time, tenor Russell Thomas has thrilled LA audiences as Cavaradossi in Tosca, Pollione in Norma and Titus in The Clemency of Titus. He now collaborates with pianist Kyung-mi Kim for a program of art songs by Vaughan Williams, Schubert, Verdi and Mascagni, as well as the iconic Billie Holiday hit, Strange Fruit.

The incomparable Renée Fleming brings her online series Music and the Mind to LA Opera. She'll be speaking live with President and CEO Christopher Koelsch about what an opera company and a hospital have in common. They'll be joined by Stacy Brightman (Vice President of LA Opera Connects), J. Todd Frazier (System Director of Houston Methodist Hospital’s Center for Performing Arts Medicine) and Gail Soffer (Founder and Executive Director of the Mindful Warrior Project), and sharing an original composition by Brooke De Rosa set to poetry written by veterans.
