Classical 101.1 WRR Focus on the Arts: How The Dallas Opera just got even more accessible to global audiences

“I think it really amounts to one word and that’s ‘accessibility,’” says The Dallas Opera General Director and CEO Ian Derrer. “During the pandemic, we wanted to make sure we remained accessible to our audiences here in Dallas – but we also knew that there was an opportunity to engage globally.” In this conversation with WRR’s Amy Bishop, Derrer explains why the organization recently decided to make their streaming platform, TheDallasOpera.TV, free to all users.
