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.
Opera Frontier's Troupe of "choreographable" classically-trained singers perform its portable revue throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. To discuss featuring OFT at your event or for more information, contact
