June was an eventful month, but we at Michigan Opera Theatre made sure to end it with Pride! Below, enjoy a special podcast discussing LGBTQ artists and performances in opera and dance, as well as a feature on five groundbreaking transgender opera singers. We also explore dance and figure skating performances inspired by Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, announce our dance photo contest winners and share a delicious performance to start off the holiday weekend!
