Classical music: What is the state of opera today? NPR’s outstanding “Deceptive Cadence” blog holds a discussion with critics, managers and artists. | September 8, 2012

By Jacob Stockinger

Taking its cue from a recent story, in the newest issue of Opera News, about the state of opera today, NPR’s outstanding classical music blogDeceptive Cadence” recently hosted a roundtable discussion that included journalists, critics and singers.

Excellent points were made in this intelligent and perceptive discussion that also focused on new operas and young singers (below in a photo by James Salzano for Opera News) including (from leftt): Kate Lindsey, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Luca Pisaroni, Ailyn Perez and Michael Christie.

What do you think of the health of opera today?

What do you think about new operas?

What do you think about new performers and your favorites among them?

The Ear wants to hear.
