OPERA America’s 50th annual conference has moved online

The conference will take place from May 13 to June 03, and each week will have a different focus of conversation and debate: Future vision, New technologies, real membership and making a change. Registration is free and open to the public.

 

 

OPERA America’s 50th annual conference brings together the field’s administrators, artists, and trustees to focus on four key themes that are essential to the future of the art form.

 

Each week will focus on a key theme with a keynote address and interactive panel discussion via live stream. These general sessions will be followed later in the week by roundtable discussions for each network.

 

Registration is free and open to all. Sign up to receive access information for each live stream.

 

Once registered, you will receive an email reminder on the morning of each session. All sessions will stream live at the scheduled time at youtube.com/operaamerica. Sessions can be viewed on a computer, tablet or phone browser.
