UPDATE: 2020/21 Season

Portland Opera’s 20/21 season Reimagined!

Portland Opera announces a reimagined 2020/21 season, featuring a series of virtual recitals from the company’s artistic home in Southeast Portland, an outdoor opera experience, and productions broadcast via the company’s new digital channel, Portland Opera Onscreen. While Multnomah County remains in Phase I of COVID-19 reopening, the company has pivoted to create and share this unique content safely—upgrading HVAC systems and transforming the Hampton Opera Center into a digital studio, while working with a team of medical experts to review protocols and practices. All productions in the reimagined season will be presented as digital immersive experiences—with artist conversations, behind-the-scenes content, and other engagement opportunities. Portland Opera’s staff will continue to plan for the possibility that the progression of reopening phases may permit the addition of in-person performances this season.
