Opera Frontier delights both opera fans and opera-phobes. We revere opera. We faithfully excerpt from traditional scores and strive for technically excellent singing. But beyond that, we take outrageous liberties in the service of engaging our audience in unexpected ways . . . through radical changes of context and casting, through the introduction of elements from dance, popular culture, contemporary beat, and narrative. In this way, Opera Frontier redefines the way an audience experiences this glorious music.

  • D. Courtney Bryson (Tenor) retuned to singing recently after a 24 year hiatus. Upon graduation from Shenandoah University he was voted Virginia’s “Singer of the Year” by NATS. He gained fame for his Lieder concerts and when heard by Eugene Talley-Schmidt, was offered a fellowship to Florida State to study with Talley-Schmidt and Elena Nikolaidi. While preparing for a Fulbright Grant to study/sing in Mr. Talley-Schmidt’s old company in Germany, Mr. Bryson was drafted into the military. Stationed in Hawaii he sang with the Honolulu Opera Theatre. In Hawaii he was selected by Italo Tajo of the Met to perform the world premiere of a newly discovered opera by Purcell, The Judgment of Paris.  He then left the stage for a business and family life. While living in New Mexico he joined a new opera company conducted by the founder/conductor emeritus of the Santa Fe Opera, Robert Baustian, who encouraged Doug to resume singing. Since moving to the Bay Area he has been a soloist in opera and oratorio with the Festival Opera, the Oakland Lyric Opera, Peninsula Cantare, California Chamber Orchestra, Moraga Choir, Rossmoor Chorus, and the San Francisco City Chorus.
