ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

VO: During pandemic times how have performers survived the arts interrupted?

It is a very close company, who we miss terribly, now.

When the city shutdown the way arts and dance and cultural workers make a

The big question for me has been, "In the absence of song, who am I?"

Welcome to the Kennedy Center Opera House.

VO: Join us when "Great Performances" explores "The Arts Interrupted."
