GBH Music will introduce new listeners to opera in a video series produced in collaboration with Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) and New England Conservatory (NEC). Designed for newcomers and seasoned enthusiasts, “Getting into Opera” aims to ignite a passion for the genre by showcasing how powerful performances are shaped by vocal coaching and stage direction.

The innovative multi-platform video series will be filmed in front of a live audience in GBH’s acoustically acclaimed Fraser Performance Studio on January 18 and March 7, with more dates coming in the fall. The first episode will feature a masterclass with renowned American soprano Patricia Racette teaching rising young singers from BLO’s Emerging Artists program and students from NEC. The second will feature performances of some of the most emotionally resonant arias ever written.

“Getting into Opera” will be available free of charge on YouTube and other platforms. The production is made possible by a generous donation from David and Janet McCue.
