Covid-19 Resources in Oregon:
As a leading convener for arts and culture in the Portland metro area and Oregon, Portland Opera is continuing to develop protocols, practices, and plans to keep our audiences, artists, employees, staff, and collaborators safe. Our goal remains to assist in containing the spread of the virus, while advocating for the long-term health of our organization, and the well-being of the many wonderful people who constitute Portland Opera.
Portland Opera designs our events and performances to adhere to local, county, state, and national guidance. We all know that guidance, trends, and mandates can change quickly, and we do our best to navigate those changes and adapt while maintaining our commitment to health, safety, and flexibility.
As part of the company’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of the staff, artists, ensemble, and audience members, Portland Opera has engaged a team of medical advisors to review all safety procedures and protocols, ensuring the company is in line with the best and current medical advice on an ongoing basis.
The company has also upgraded the HVAC system and transformed the Hampton Opera Center into a digital studio, allowing for unique production of content for broadcast. The changes to our physical spaces have also served as safe and socially distanced rehearsal and event activation centers.
