Opera Review

Short pieces from 20 Irish composers, a serial space opera and a trio of works inspired by famous diaries.

Opera companies’ online offerings, including White Snake Projects’ ambitious ‘Alice in the Pandemic,’ continue to explore the possibilities of virtual performance.

American opera companies, including Houston Grand Opera, have begun to create original content for virtual viewing.

Opera festivals have moved most of their programming online this year, but the offerings, such as Salzburg’s virtually viewable production of Strauss’s ‘Elektra,’ remain tempting.

With tenor Jonas Kaufmann’s performance on Saturday, the Metropolitan Opera launched Met Stars Live in Concert, a recital series featuring the company’s most popular singers livestreamed from around the world.

With the closure of the Met and other opera companies around the U.S., groups have taken to other means of entertaining, from livestreams to songs delivered one-on-one over the phone.

The Met’s new production of ‘Der Fliegende Holl?nder’ (The Flying Dutchman) is a gloomy, static voyage.
