Throughout the pandemic and in compliance with health and safety restrictions, Maryland Opera has been committed to keeping opera alive for our devoted and passionate opera lovers. With our outdoor Arias Alfresco concerts in gorgeous, sylvan settings in 2020 and 2021, our live streamed concerts from beautiful private homes, and our presentations from the barn at Boordy Vineyards, Maryland Opera continues to present innovative operatic classics. These creative programs were presented with extraordinary artists of international status--“leading voices” in their field. Engagement of these artists was through the generosity and support of the Loretta Lee Ver Valen Endowment Fund for Leading Operatic Artists, for which we are so appreciative.
We are also greatly indebted to the Maryland State Arts Council for their continued support of our mission and presentations. Thank you, MSAC! To discover more about the Maryland State Arts Council and how they impact Maryland, visit msac.org.
