Programming Changes to Season 2 of the Opera Philadelphia Channel
August 26, 2021
Opera Philadelphia has announced several programming changes for Season 2 of the Opera Philadelphia Channel.
On May 18, Opera Philadelphia announced plans to stream a concert film and documentary bringing audiences a fresh perspective on Glass Handel, created by American countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo in collaboration with producer Cath Brittan and avant-garde fashion/art company Visionaire, and a new film of El Cimarrón starring bass-baritone Sir Willard White, directed by Raelle Myrick-Hodges and Jorge Cousineau with music director Stephanie Rhodes Russell.
For various reasons related to the production and distribution of these works, we are unable to follow through with our plans to add Glass Handel and El Cimarrón to the Channel.
Replacement digital programming for the 2021-2022 season will be announced in the coming weeks.
