Looking for some light relief…

This just in…

Pacific Opera Project (POP) announces an interactive watch party of a rebroadcast of POP’s hit production of Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio from The Ford Amphitheatre, recorded in September of 2016, on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 5pm PT. The watch party features interviews with the cast, an update from POP’s Artistic Director about the rest of the season, and interactive elements including costume contests, drink recipes, and more. The stream will be available on POP’s YouTube Channel and Facebook Page. In his time when “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few,” POP invites homebound audiences to boldly go where no “quarantined” opera audience has gone before.
