OPERA NEO PRODUCES A VIRTUAL PRODUCTION OF THE MAGIC FLUTE
While the cancelation of Opera NEO's public events (including Dane's debut as Faust) is deeply disappointing, they are creating an online production of The Magic Flute. This pioneering production directed by David Radamés Toro and conducted by Peter Kozma, will feature Opera NEO's talented young artists, all performing from their own homes. The virtual project will not only bring the joy of Mozart’s music into the homes of the San Diego community, but also will offer much-needed artistic fulfillment and a chance for collaboration to its young artists, orchestra members, visual designers, and production staff. Dane will perform the role of First Man in Armour.
