Processing, planning, moving forward…

August and September of 2011 have made up a true whirlwind of operatic activity. We attacked, both in unique operamission fashion, two of the greatest operas in the repertoire – Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro and Puccini’s La Bohème. We’re thrilled to be connecting to new audiences every day. Thank you for following operamission‘s progress and supporting the vision.

Video clips of both productions are being shared on operamission’s YouTube channel, along with some fine footage of Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat from June 2011.

operamission recently received a very nice nod in the October 2011 issue of London’s Opera Now magazine. Robert Levine reports on the New York opera scene, with informative coverage of the Met and NYCO, and then spends a nice healthy page exposing what he calls “The New York Fringe.” Not available online, please take a look at this PDF version of the article, and don’t miss the giant photo of soprano Marcy Richardson by photographer Cory Weaver. Well, it’s hard to miss… Enjoy the article.
