Best of 2020: OperaWire’s Top 11 Industry-Defining Moments of the Year

“If we look back at this year, we can all agree that some of the greatest innovation from around the opera world came not from the “big name” companies, but those with more flexibility.

Some projects that really stood out in this vein include the Decameron Coalition, which saw such companies as Bare Opera, Lyric Opera of the North, Fargo-Moorhead Opera, UrbanArias, Opera in the Heights, Milwaukee Opera Theatre, An Opera Theatre, Resonance Works, and Chicago Fringe Opera come together to create a unique, multi-faceted online opera experience.”

“This is likely where most of the operatic innovation is coming not only over the next year, but for years to come and it is a major reason for hope in the opera world in 2021.”
