Key Change - Creating Opera for All Voices

How do we reimagine opera to reflect the current moment? How does the complexity of the art form help us to hold complicated truths? How can present and future leaders in the industry strengthen our understanding of voice, story, and community? Co-hosts Andrea Fellows Fineberg and Anna Garcia from the Santa Fe Opera invite artists, creators, educators, collaborators, and audience together to discuss both what and how opera can be for generations to come.
