Opera Sustenida presents:
“Divas for Hire!!”
Our very first virtual concert, “Divas for Hire!!” is a one-of-a-kind online event that pushes the boundaries of the traditional concert format.

Stephanie DeCiantis, soprano
Nicole Whitney Dubinsky, coloratura soprano
Daniella Theresia, mezzo-soprano
Suzanne Yeo, pianist
For this unique livestreamed concert, we recreated the experience of watching a live performance using innovative virtual staging techniques. These are not your typical “four performers in a box” videos – our staging makes it seem like the performers are actually interacting with each other on screen.
Audience members had the unique opportunity to vote for their favorite pieces from a selection of beloved opera arias and ensembles, which became our final concert program. We also included live Q&A segments where we answered questions pre-submitted by our audience.
