WE tv and Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Studios (Ghost Hunters) are developing a behind-the-scenes docu-series centered on the intense and competitive world of opera. Love And Opera (wt) follows a group of young, beautiful and boldly ambitious opera singers fighting for diva status in New York City.

“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, WE tv’s president. “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.”

From the grueling auditions and backstage backstabbing to the salacious “showmances” and glitterati galas, Love And Opera (wt) 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 cutthroat community, according to the description. Pilgrim Studios is producing.
