In 2015, Wolf Trap Opera embarked on a new initiative to offer time-limited video streams of its productions at The Barns at Wolf Trap. In partnership with Blue Land Media, Classical WETA 90.9 and Wolf Trap Recordings, a new opera is made available at www.wolftrap.org/streaming every six months.
One hour before each opera performance at The Barns, Wolf Trap Opera Director Kim Witman takes you Inside the Opera. Make sense of pesky complicated opera plots, sample the music you’re about to hear, and get an inside look at the artists and design of each production. These 30-minute events take place at the Center for Education at Wolf Trap (next door to The Barns). Free admission, reservations not required.
Each season’s Filene Artist in Residence holds a public master class at the Center for Education at Wolf Trap, offering Wolf Trap Opera’s young residents guidance on style, performance enhancement, language, stagecraft, and more. This class is open to the public—aspiring singers and opera aficionados welcome!
