We created Living Opera upon the advice of a mentor. "Do something for someone that you wish had been done for you when you were starting out."
2018 was one of the most difficult years of our nearly 10 year long relationship, and as we opened up to colleagues around the world about our experiences, we realized that many people felt alone and afraid to speak up about their journey to starting, and maintaining a career in classical music.
And it's not just the singers. We have spoken to managers, conductors, instrumentalists, casting directors, choristers, promoters - and the consensus is this: living (in) opera is a challenge!
We hope our small contribution creates a dynamic space for expression, mentorships and hope.
"A light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it."
May your light shine!
