Festival O20

With the world premiere of a new commission, a major new production of one of opera’s great classics, and a host of A-list artists making their company and role debuts, the company’s new season underscores its status not only as “one of North America’s premiere generators of valid new operas” (Opera News) but also as “one of American opera’s success stories” (New York Times).
