Socially distanced, masked singing rehearsals. Isolated recordings. Set decors sent in the mail. Makeup done by a roommate. While all productions require a degree of creativity and resourcefulness. This remote, virtual production of The Medium took the artistic mastery up a few notches. 

Dartmouth Opera Lab's Music Director Filippo Ciabatti, Director of Text and Dramatic Studies Peter Webster, Director of Vocal Studies Erma Mellinger and Emma Ginsberg '23 share their perspectives in this live discussion.
