New York opera singers are to take the spotlight in U.S. net WE tv’s forthcoming, tentatively titled docuseries Love and Opera.
The Pilgrim Studios-produced program is to follow a group of opera singers “fighting for diva status” amidst auditions, ‘showmances’ and elaborate productions in a highly competitive world where they must be both skilled and technically trained singers as well as excellent actors.
According to a release issued by the net, “Love and Opera will pull back the curtain, giving viewers a glimpse into how these aspiring prima donnas balance their craft and career with the drama of their tightly knit, often cut-throat community.”
“Opera is one of the few – if not the last – places unexplored by unscripted TV and this show challenges every conventional notion we have about it,” said Marc Juris (pictured), president of WE tv, in a statement.
“It’s a fascinating world of young, ambitious, incredibly talented people looking for love, fame and friendship while navigating a rarified world of privilege and glamour,” he continued.
Love and Opera is currently in development.
