The Circus Princess during Cennairum's National Opera Week

The Circus Princess will be live on Saturday, November 4.

In celebration of this week, Cennarium is giving a gift to opera fans the world over. Beginning this weekend the streaming service will showcase four different works for free. The streaming festivities get started with “The Magic Flute” for Children and “The Circus Princess,” both on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. EST. The former is a condensed, 60-minute version of the Mozart classic. Then on Sunday, adults get their day with streamed performances of “Doktor Faust” and Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde.” These performances also kick off at 8 p.m. EST. “Opera is one of the oldest and most compelling art forms,” said Themis Gomes, CEO of Cennarium. “We want to expose new audiences to opera, particularly people who do not live in major metropolitan areas and have limited access to these types of performances. Streaming the arts enables everyone to share these amazing productions and expand their entertainment options.”

Just remember: this rich program of opera will be live on this upcoming weekend. So end your National Opera Week right – get your free access here and enjoy these opera shows!
