I think, it is safe to say that this was one of the most challenging years in the history of the ONDR as it had to cancel large parts of this year’s season due to the covid pandemic.
The performing arts - and especially dance with its necessity of physical proximity and touch - are quite possibly hit the hardest under the lockdowns and as seats remain empty. How all of this affected the opera, ensemble, and Thomas in particular and what this means for the new year and the new season, we will talk about today.
