The digital roundtable and live Q&A focuses on the confluence of gender, music, and drama. Online audiences can submit questions in real-time to panellists who regularly confront the question of how gender constructs affect those working in opera, the art form itself, and beyond: Amplified Opera co-founders Teiya Kasahara, Marion Newman, and Asitha Tennekoon; COC Ensemble Studio baritone Jonah Spungin; performer, creator and transgender advocate Avery Jean Brennan; and actor/singer Jonathan Christopher.
The virtual event will be moderated by Aria Umezawa and full details are available at coc.ca/GenderAndOpera.
