For those who have not yet seen it, or want to see it again, LA Opera proudly presents The Anonymous Lover (L’Amant Anonyme), an unjustly neglected 1780 chamber opera by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a pioneering Black composer who was a contemporary of Mozart. His comic romance tells the story of Léontine, a beautiful young widow who has become disillusioned with love. Much to her surprise, she receives a steady stream of letters and gifts from an unknown man professing his undying passion. Her friend Valcour tells her he has no interest in romance. But now, after hiding his true feelings for years, Valcour has the courage to reveal that he himself is her devoted secret admirer. Will his confession sway a woman sworn to resist all affairs of the heart?

Is Online Video Streaming Killing the Internet — and the Environment?

What comes to mind when the topic of “online video consumption” gets brought up? Do you immediately think of streaming platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo? Do you think of the ever-popular social networks, such as Tik Tok, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc? Perhaps you think of those Netflix/Hulu/HBO Now marathons? Then again, it’s not all fun like watching live gameplay on Twitch — many of us only have time for serious usage of online video. In these post-pandemic days, you might only have the bandwidth for online classes, online conferences/events, and maybe a dash of online fitness.
