Now more than ever, audiences need stories that “cut to the quick,” says American baritone Michael Mayes. He delivers them through his TDO Network program, The Quick, which focuses on the deeply human connections that can be found in the world of opera. Mayes explores how compelling stories make it to the opera stage with fascinating guests including Laura Thompson-Weishaupt—daughter of Colonel Floyd James Thompson, the protagonist portrayed in Glory Denied; baritones Will Liverman and Jermaine Woodward, Jr., who reveal details of their “primal brotherhood” as mentor and mentee; and baritones Andy Wilkowske and Matt Worth from the 2016 Atlanta Opera cast of Kevin Puts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning Silent Night.
