UnMic'd

UnMic’d is a new show produced by Arizona Opera that explores the blurry edge that connects the world of opera to, well, just about everything else. Each episode, Arizona Opera President and General Director, Joseph Specter, will be joined by a recognized professional from the field of opera, together with an individual from another field who engages in similar work. A composer from opera and a composer of pop and musical theater. A stage combat instructor and an instructor of mixed martial arts. A costume designer and a couture fashion designer. The elements of opera are the elements of our everyday lives. Explore the blurry edge with us on UnMic’d.
