The Fort Worth Opera may be coming to a cable channel near you.
The company — the oldest continually operating opera troupe in Texas — recently won a competition to have a behind-the-scenes reality series made of their upcoming festival. Filming is beginning now with certain activities, many centered around the company’s gay general director, Darren Woods, who instituted the festival format a few years back.
Filming will ramp up in May, once the artists begin to arrive and the FWO has to put on three rotating shows — including the premiere of Before Night Falls about the gay poet Reinaldo Arenas — in less than a month.
No word yet on when — of even if — the series will eventually air.
