The Indie Opera Podcast Is…

The Indie Opera Podcast is stepping in to the video realm. We are members of the New York Opera Alliance and were part of their Kick-off event at Le Poisson Rouge on Nov. 3rd. So we showed a video, which is tempting us to try making a video podcast. So we recorded a show in video to be released soon!

Here is the Video that we showed at the NYOA event. I hope you enjoy.
