Dear Opera Fayetteville Family,
In the meantime, we miss you, and we’re excited to share a project we’ve been working on this summer—Postcards from Opera Fayetteville. For the rest of the year, we’ll be sending these “postcards” every two weeks. Each one will feature a quick visit with a favorite OF artist from a prior season, along with a performance of a contemporary aria or song that we’re sure you’ll love! We’ve been really enjoying this chance to stay in touch with our friends from years past, and we hope these quick tastes of art will create moments of joy and connection in your day. Each will arrive in your inbox in this newsletter and will be posted to our Facebook and Instagram profiles.
In addition to spending some online time with Opera Fayetteville artists, we were fortunate to be able to collaborate with local artist Lisa Marie Evans, who created the opening animation for the postcards.
Thank you so much for your continued support of our company. It means the world to us. If these videos brighten your day the way I hope they will, please consider sharing them with your networks via email or social media. It’s an easy and super effective way to keep us growing in this turbulent time for the arts. And, if you feel moved to make a donation, know that your support is vital to our mission to continue to bring relevant, contemporary opera to Northwest Arkansas and even the smallest of donations goes a long way towards helping us reach our goals. We can’t do it without you!
With gratitude and excitement,
PS. Expect your first postcard next Wednesday from Alba Franco-Cancél—I know you’re going to love it!
