On a Positive Note: Princeton Festival Goes Virtual

May 27, 2020

The Princeton Festival’s 2018 performance of Manama Butterfly is one of the performances that will be streamed as part of its virtual festival this summer.

The Princeton Festival was one of the earlier summer festivals to acknowledge that the Covid-19 shut-down that began in mid-March would most likely not lift in time for it to prepare for its summer events. But canceling the opera, musical and other concert performances that usually run for several weeks in June did not mean the Festival was off entirely. After reviewing possible options, organizers put together a program of archived operas, new material from festival artists and a few live events that will run online from June 1 to 28. Richard Tang Yuk is Artistic Director.

 

Past Princeton Festival performances will also be broadcast on WWFM throughout the month of June. Check our listings for more details.
