The searing heat of summer is here and performance has taken to the street! On this podcast we focus on opera in alternative spaces and summer festivals.
We have interviews with:
- Kevin Newbury who is directing Die Liebe der Danae at Bard’s Summerscape
- Christoph Hagel who directed and conducted The Magic Flute in the Ubahn in Berlin
- Judith Barnes, artistic director of Vertical Player Repertory, which stages opera in warehouse courtyards, on oil tankers and other non-traditional venues.
