The show will go on, but in a different fashion when the Michigan Opera Theatre resumes operations in the future.
The company, headquartered in the Detroit Opera House, has announced that its "fall season will offer unique, unprecedented performances that meet social distancing guidelines." That includes. according to the MOT...
• Alternate performance locations including outdoor settings and venues. This will include the hall of the Detroit Opera house as well as other locales as well as online offerings.
• Small scale productions with socially-distanced casts and dancers. This will include the hall of the Detroit Opera house as well as other.
• Limited capacity, socially-distanced seating at the Detroit Opera House and other local venues.
The company calls it "a temporary departure from its traditional format of presenting Grand Opera and large-cast dance productions."
No specific programs or time frames have been determined yet; The MOT says that "final touches...are still being made."
The MOT recently received a $175,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for its MOT At Home digital series, which it launched during April.
