OPERA POSSE - An ever-inclusive cooperative of professional opera singers exploring ways to refresh the relevance of opera by celebrating, innovating, giving back to the community, and, moreover, mentoring, interfacing, and collaborating with the emerging artist through performance.
When we take a humble look at our present economy, we have to reflect on how we can sustain opera in the manner to which it has become accustomed. We believe opera and indeed, the larger houses need help. We believe that smaller companies can bring high quality singing to the smaller community and in turn help create new audiences. We are great believers in ALL artists dipping in the pool of true outreach and giving back.
OPERA POSSE is not an opera house nor is it a company vested in traditions but approaches the art of opera with reverence for the singers and the music. Our opera houses are small theaters and unique spaces. We are a company about new opera, old opera, and unique ways to reexamine the art through unique performances that explore other ways to participate in opera performance. We ask great singers to give back and reinvest in their art on a local level so as to feed the larger houses and the general well-being of everything we love about grand opera.
