In our third week of #VirtualOperaOmaha, we caught up with another familiar face at Opera Omaha and watched some great content from others around the country. Read below to learn about anything you might have missed.
Check-In with Tenor Jack Swanson
Tenor Jack Swanson delighted you at the Orpheum Theater in February as Belmonte in Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio. We checked in with Jack to see how he’s been spending his time in quarantine. It seems he may have decided to continue the nightclub theme from Abduction off-stage, as he has been enjoying some Manhattan cocktails to pass the time!
