“Opera Must Flourish For Future Generations.” Lindy Hume

“A great opera experience — intimate or grand, traditional or unconventional — can have a powerful effect…….. But my gut (and the global decline in opera subscriptions) tells me that when opera tries to sex itself up and compete with mega-spectacles, it loses its power to connect with audiences.”

A ‘must-read’ from Lindy Hume,  past director of the Sydney Festival and presently artistic director of Opera Queensland on keeping the art form popular without losing integrity.
