Marshall Opera entertains and inspires diverse audiences with compelling productions of new and neglected opera, mostly American; supports opera creators and performers with opportunities and guidance as they make new work, and fosters conversations that contextualize and illuminate the evolving opera scene.
Drawing inspiration from the visionary producing and conducting career of Richard Marshall, Marshall Opera performs 20th and 21st century operas by Americans, as well as composers beyond our borders.
Composers we feature demonstrate outstanding musical craftsmanship, love
of the art of singing, and vivid dramatic imagination. Our approach to casting centers the expressive beauty of the human voice.
Other company activities include an oral history project, lecture-recitals, and scholarly articles.
