In episode 4, Rachel Krehm and Aria Umezawa talk about:
• Opera Cheats: deconstructing opera plots in 3-minute YouTube videos
• Operas that bring in the dancers, pull gags, get laughs, and cast audience members
• What to do when your measure of success is blown out of the water
Rachel and Aria are the founders and directors of Opera5, an independent opera company in Toronto that’s hooking a new generation with its immersive live productions and YouTube high jinks.
Willful is the web series that tracks how artists and creative entrepreneurs work, thrive and survive. We interview one artist a week, then post five three-minute snack films from that interview on YouTube every day.
Thank you, Greg Garson, for your hospitality at The Merchant Taps & Tavern.
