According to the press release the program « offers a blend of entertaining and interactive online content for opera lovers and novices alike. » The FWO Green Room will feature performances, seminars, masterclasses, a two-night libretto workshop, and round-table discussions.

Metropolitan Opera soprano Jennifer Rowley will offer a six-week Virtual Audition Intensive to prepare young opera singers for the fall audition season ahead.

Starting the week of August 17, FWO will debut Festival Artists Online, the company’s digital platform for concerts, intimate living room performances, and discussions. Martin Bakari, Vanessa Becerra, Emily Fons, Devon Guthrie, Abigail Levis, Curt Olds, Luis Alejandro Orozco, Donovan Singletary, Efraín Solís, and Talise Trevigne are the project’s inaugural guests.

Stripped of any musical elements for this latest incarnation, Frontiers: FWO Libretto Workshop will highlight some of the most vibrant literary voices in contemporary opera, with a two-night exploration of storytelling led by Pulitzer Prize-winning librettist Mark Campbell and a prestigious panel of librettists, directors, and singers. A call for submissions, further details, and the full list of panelists will be announced shortly, as well as other initiatives.
