Opera for All Voices (OFAV) began as a consortium of North American opera companies committed to co-commissioning and co-producing new operatic works for audiences of all ages that bear the same artistic integrity and depth of storytelling as main stage works. Over several years it has grown in its mission to tell "stories of our time." Follow host Andrea Fellows Fineberg from The Santa Fe Opera and OFAV collaborators and stakeholders as we explore the process, the context, and the story of commissioning and producing new operas in America.

Where you begin and where you end up are often two very different things. 

While this final episode of the season is definitely NOT the end, we thought it was a good time to pause, check in with our consortium members and commissioned artists, and speculate on what lies ahead for Opera For All Voices.

And for that matter, we hear some interesting thoughts from our community about what lies ahead for opera -- the art form and the industry.

If you're new to Key Change, we recommend going back and listening to the beginning of the season (at the very least, episodes 1 and 2) before you jump into this one.
