As a performer and teacher, one tries to find a way to give back to the greater community, Opera Theater has been the perfect venue with which to do so.
The vision to showcase the best of our local and emerging talent on stage with nationally and internationally recognized artists has been a revelation in every production, Gospel at Colonus and The Ring, to name two, but there are many, many more!
For African American classical musicians, Jonathan Eaton and Opera Theater have been groundbreaking in offering professional opportunities for chorus, small roles, supporting roles, lead roles, directing, conducting, choreography, costuming, and teaching. Opera Theater with it's amazing staff, volunteers and board continues to stay relevant by keeping the arts in the community so it can keep the community in the arts!
Thank you for your comments, and for your dedication to Opera Theater and the arts at large. We are so fortunate to have you on our Board. -Rachel, Opera Theater
