Confinement has forced concert and opera venues to shut down leaving many performers and stages struggling to make ends meet. Meanwhile, video streaming has become a workaround to keep performances alive during these difficult times.
On April 25 at 1 p.m. EDT (7 p.m. CET), Sonya Yoncheva, Nicole Car and Etienne Dupuis will join a stellar line-up of over 40 artists for the Met’s virtual At-Home Gala. Recorded at the artists’ homes all around the world, it will be video streamed live and remain available until 6:30 p.m. EDT on April 26. The concert can be viewed for free, though donations are appreciated as the event is part of the Met’s “The Voice Must Be Heard” fundraising campaign to support the company in these challenging times.
