5 Minutes That Will Make You Love Opera
We shared a wonderful article from The New York Times, entitled ‘5 Minutes That Will Make You Love Opera’. NYT asked artists from all disciplines, from superstar soprano Renée Fleming to actor John Turturro to punk rock legend Patti Smith, for the 5 minutes that they would show someone in order to make them fall in love with opera.

Virtual Prelude Talk: Aida
On Friday evening, San Diego Opera’s Dr. Nic Reveles presented an engaging and informative prelude talk on Verdi’s Aida, in advance of The Metropolitan Opera’s free stream of the opera. This particular performance of Aida was the night that soprano Leontyne Price retired from opera. Watch the Virtual Prelude Talk on the Opera San Diego Facebook page.
