Opera that ignites all 5 senses

Everyone has an opinion of opera. You're either yay or nay. See if this week's Willful guests change your mind. In Ep. 1,  Rachel Krehm and Aria Umezawa describe:

• Opera that ignites all 5 senses
• Why no one should have to sit motionless and silent through a show
• The origins of opera in the courts, and the surprising role of audiences

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.
