Tonight at Opernhaus Dortmund, we’re premiering our Tosca at 19:30. Although there were a smattering of productions last season for reduced cast, orchestra, and audience size, this is the first premiere the opera chorus will be participating in since our March 13, 2020 Geisterpremiere of La Muette de Portici, which marked the last time we performed on our own stage.
Since then, we’ve been part of a handful of projects that were mostly streamed online, but we’re ready to be in front of an audience and singing live in a big house again. And this production is the right way to start moving back towards normality. I believe that our audience will be thrilled with what they see and hear tonight, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
