Just about 12 weeks ago, we were fresh off our fall audition tour, staring at an exciting and maddening void. No rep planned, no performances scheduled, no one hired.
And somehow, tomorrow we go on sale. 3 opera productions on our main stages, 2 additional productions in exciting new places, a great 10th anniversary scenes program for our Studio Artists, concerts and more. We’ve hired over 100 people, and there will be more.
Getting from a blank slate to a full season in a few months isn’t for sissies, but it’s at the heart of what we do. Our ability to be inspired by the singers we hear on the road each fall translates to a clarity of purpose for each WTO season. This excitement transfers to our artists, and they bring it to our patrons.
Join us, won’t you?
* The fastest 0-60 time ever recorded is purportedly 1.7 seconds by the Lingenfelter ZO6 Corvette. Not sure what the fastest full season launch time by an opera company is, but the record has to be held by WTO. :)
