A Letter from On Site Opera’s General & Artistic Director
Play a starring role in site-specific opera!

Perhaps they have found a viable route back to the future.” Opera Today
Dear Friend of On Site Opera,
When I envisioned On Site Opera over three years ago, I set out to create a company that would re-examine how opera was produced and bring the drama and music closer to audiences than ever before. Since On Site Opera’s first performance in 2012, we have been fulfilling these goals by bringing accessible operatic programming with affordable ticket prices to New York audiences.
The reviews are in and our recent production of Paisiello’sThe Barber of Seville at the Fabbri Mansion (House of the Redeemer) was a hit amongst sold-out crowds and critics! Opera Todayreported that Barber “Achieved the seemingly impossible. The performance I attended was so fresh, original and immediate. Overall I enjoyed this evening as much as any live opera I’ve attended in the last decade.” And Broadway World raved “It (On Site Opera) succeeds brilliantly in making opera-going an intimate experience, where the singers are a few feet away from the audience and drawing us into the story in a way that a night at the Met or any other grand opera house can hardly ever do.”
Support immersive opera and be a part of the future!
