08: And We're Just Getting Started: What's next for Opera for All Voices?
By The Santa Fe Opera, Opera for All Voices
Where you begin and where you end up are often two very different things. While this final episode of the season is definitely NOT the end, we thought it was a good time to pause, check in with our consortium members and commissioned artists, and speculate on what lies ahead for Opera For All Voices. And for that matter, we hear some interesting thoughts from our community about what lies ahead for opera -- the art form and the industry. If you're new to Key Change, we recommend going back and listening to the beginning of the season (at the very least, episodes 1 and 2) before you jump into this one. *** Key Change is a production of The Santa Fe Opera in collaboration with Opera for All Voices. Produced and edited by Andrea Klunder at The Creative Impostor Studios Hosts: Andrea Fellows Walters and Brandon Neal Audio Engineer: Kabby at Kabby Sound Studios in Santa Fe Theme music by Rene Orth with Corrie Stallings, mezzo-soprano, and Joe Becktell, cello. Cover art by David Tousley Special thanks to: The Relic Room in New York, Bad Animals in Seattle, and Halfway to Hell Studios in Albuquerque. OFAV Consortium Members: Lyric Opera for Kansas City, Minnesota Opera, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, San Francisco Opera, Sarasota Opera and Seattle Opera.
