HILLHOUSE OPERA COMPANY
February 26, 2010
The Hillhouse Opera Company (HHOC) is a great asset to the New Haven Community. As a member of the Company I have been a part of all of its productions, including mainstage operas (fully staged and with costumes and orchestra), scenes programs (also staged), concerts and master classes. The productions are always high-quality and professional, and you cannot beat the price (free, with a suggested donation of $10/person, $5 for students and seniors). The talent is mostly from Connecticut, a few have come from New York (HHOC strives to use local talent as part of its mission), and they *are* talented. The Company is still young, but they started out strong and are only getting better as they age.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
building relationships with the community and experiencing quality opera.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
really become a strong business in the community that could stimulate the economy (by creating jobs and revenue)as well as inspire the community members through giving them access to a cultural experience.
