1) Teamwork is key. Everyone at the company collaborates to make our productions spectacular and employees are willing to go the extra mile for our art
2) There are so many ways to see opera and so many new innovations.
3) Details always matter. It’s been amazing to learn how much detail goes into the work of every department from specific costume trimmings to engaging the community with our marketing campaigns. I have greatly admired as well as shared my colleagues’ artistic enthusiasm for bringing compelling operas the stage.
