The fourth wayThen, at the World Opera Forum in Madrid, April 2018, I came across what could be a fourth approach – the North American approach of a social good anchored to its (local?) audience:
"We are not here to perform opera, we are here to serve our local community"
– Lawrence Edelson, American Lyric Theater
"Canadian opera companies are telling stories that don't belong to them, but on behalf of those communities that don't have the resources"
– a Canadian delegate
