  • In exploring ways to present “Amahl” in a New York City location, we focused on the message of the piece: at its core, “Amahl” is a piece about generosity and selflessness, regardless of one’s situation. We also wanted to find a space where people like Amahl and his Mother might exist in a contemporary NYC setting, which led to @holyapostlessoupkitchen. Holy Apostles provides 1,000 meals a day to New Yorkers experiencing homelessness, and as soon as we came upon it, we knew we had found our venue. The idea of creating this opera in a community space that feeds the population that Amahl and his Mother would belong to became an anchor for the production. #AmahlOSO

  • Amahl and the Night Visitors tells the familiar story of the Magi from the point of view of a young disabled boy named Amahl, who lives in poverty with his widowed mother. We are incredibly thankful to #BreakingGround and @holyapostlessoupkitchen for helping us bring this story to life in such a relevant way. Will we see you at #AmahlOSO?
  • So excited to share #RhodaandtheFossilHunt with Chicago audiences this weekend! Toi toi toi to the cast and crew ❤️🦕 #opera #operaincoolspaces

  • We're celebrating @operaamerica's National #OperaWeek with a photo from our first chorus rehearsal for "Amahl and the Night Visitors," featuring community members who have experienced homelessness and Michael Ciavaglia, our chorus master, at the piano. At On Site, we believe in the power of opera to connect people and communities, and we are incredibly honored to be partnering with #BreakingGround for this production. We believe that this production can show how the arts and social services can work hand in hand to help to shine a light on the issue of homelessness in New York City. #AmahlOSO @maciavag
