Questions for Dean Chin
Where would you like to see the future of the school head?
It seems to be an interesting time in the world of opera, we have a majority of major opera houses either closing or in financial crisis but at the same time many younger smaller opera companies sprouting up that only produce between one to three shows a year. Do you see this as the future of opera performances or a viable business strategy in the opera world?
Do you think that streaming performances besides those in universities really does bring more people to classical music or does it allow those who are already fans a way to not go to the theatre and decrease sales of tickets? Do we then start to charge for the ability to live stream?
Where do you see the future of live performances heading? Will they continue to be the way they know them or how do you see them evolving?
