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.

  • David Roberts (Writer, Producer, Actor) created the role of Robert Davis in the workshop production of Opera Frontier's original opera Lammermoor, Inc, a Business Tragedy in 2010. Most recently he performed the role of Carl the Bus Driver in Altarena Playhouse's production of William Inges' Bus Stop. Previously, he played Bill Ray in On Golden Pond and Doc in Crimes of the Heart. He has also performed in The Best Christmas Pageant Ever at Town Hall Theatre and in Donna Davis's Man Talk at UUCB in Kensington. David is allegedly an investment banker by day, a profession that abounds in bad actors. A former attorney and naval officer, he is the founder and director of several Inc 500 businesses, none of which was involved in leather goods. After years of enjoying his wife's performances, he is thrilled to find himself on the same stage with her – and helping her write this mash-up of Traviata and Lucia di Lammermoor.  He is also the adoring father of their two lovely daughters, Dorothy and Madeleine.
