Video DJ Opera Concert
Sunday, January 10, 2021 @ 2p
In this time of “social distancing,” we have the unique opportunity to explore new ways of engaging with music. Instead of passively listening to a preset concert, this program gives the audience the chance to engage with Cleveland Opera Theater’s Dr. Stephanie Ruozzo, to learn about and influence the selections that are included in the event! Content will include Cleveland Opera Theater’s talented performers with supplemental material being pulled from other sources.

What defines opera? This virtual, interactive event with Cleveland Opera Theater Assistant Conductor and Chorus Master Dean Buck is an overview of this art form with listening samples spanning opera’s 400-year history. Attendees are introduced to some of opera’s most beloved stories and melodies as well as to some of history’s greatest singers. By the time you leave, you will feel confident in attending your first operatic experience.

Programs to Go
Founded on the principle "Opera Per Tutti" (Opera for All), Cleveland Opera Theater brings educational programs TO YOU. We believe that appreciation of this complex art form comes not only from seeing it, but also from exploring it fully and engaging with it in a hands-on capacity.
With this in mind, we have crafted original programming for all ages aimed at demystifying opera. From Opera Speed-Dating to our Video DJ Opera Concerts, we have a wide range of programs designed to help audiences EXPERIENCE, EXPLORE, and ENGAGE with opera.
