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.

  • Igor Vieira (Henry Ashton) is a native of Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Hailed by Opera News Magazine as “superb,” and “show-stealing,” baritone Igor Vieira made his professional debut in his native Rio de Janeiro  at age 17 singing the role of Le Danca├»re in Bizet’s Carmen. Subsequent roles have included Junius in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia, the title role as well as Leporello in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Ford in Verdi’s Falstaff, Lescaut in Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, and most recently the title role in Debussy's Pelleas et Melisande.  Mr. Vieira is a world finalist of the 1995 Luciano Pavarotti Voice Competition in Philadelphia, a recipient of the Margareth Tudor Award (Princeton) for two consecutive years and the Kaplan Foundation Award (Kansas City) for outstanding artistry, as well as Second Place on the East Bay Opera League Voice Competition in 2006 and a semi-finalist of the Competizione d'Opera in Dresden - Germany in 2008.   In June of 2010, Mr. Vieira will have the honor of making his San Francisco Opera debut in the role of Happy in Puccini's La Fanciulla del West, being the very first male Brazilian singer ever to perform with that company.
