There WILL be opera, on stage and in film, in Orlando

A bunch of season ticket holders of the shuttered Orlando Opera's final season (after a brief fund-raising campaign) thought they were SOL when the doors closed and no refunds were given, but three things have happened since the closing.

Philharmonic
1. $150,000 was set aside to allow the Orlando Philharmonic produce small-scale operas. So, there will be live opera in Orlando. (Meet the Conductor)

Enzian
2. "$50,000 from United Arts will be used for vouchers to allow the subscribers to attend the Enzian Theater's Opera on Film Series. There will be opera on film in Orlando.(Source) That costs average ticket buyers $82.50.

Shakes
3. Orlando Shakes is giving the subscribers free tickets to Orlando Shakes shows, introducing them to their product.
