Opera on Tap
Artistic and General Director

I am a co-founder of Opera on Tap, a nationwide 11 year old organization with the mission of bringing opera to people while supporting the artists that keep it alive. We currently present 3 programs: -Bar Shows (our flagship core community outreach program). We sing opera in bars in 19 cities across the US as well as in Berlin and Hamburg. -The Playground Operas (our educational program for elementary-aged kids where we transform classes into production teams, culminating in a professional production of an opera on the schoolyard playground.) -ROADWORKS (our commissioning/development/full-production program. Our VR opera series The Parksville Murders is presented under this program. Additionally we are developing The Inner Circle by Daniel Felsenfeld and Kate Gale- an opera based on the life and work of Alfred Kinsey in collaboration with the cell in Manhattan. The program began with the production of our first commissioned work SMASHED: The Carrie Nation by James Barry and Timothy Braun which played to sold-out audiences and enjoyed critical acclaim with The NY Times heralding the production as 'the height' of the the NY Int'l Fringe Festival in 2014.)
