Fall 2021


Announcing our 10th Anniversary Season!

"When we first launched On Site Opera in 2012, I could never have imagined what the company would grow to become. What began as an artistic experiment a decade ago has grown into a community of people dedicated to the power of site-specific opera - not only through productions, but through new work development, deep community partnerships, and robust participation in the national arts conversation." - General & Artistic Director, Eric Einhorn
We are thrilled to announce our celebratory 10th anniversary season! From live site-specific productions to cross-borough concerts to a digital retrospective of our first decade, we can't wait to celebrate this milestone season together!

10th Anniversary Kickoff Events!

Join us for a virtual kick-off event to learn about the upcoming Anniversary Season! 

These intimate, virtually-held events will feature a presentation of the season’s programming, sneak peek video clips of the upcoming productions, insights from the artists, and open conversation with other OSO community members with opportunities to ask questions and share thoughts about the anniversary season.

Lesson Plan

By Rachel J. Peters
Our live and interactive digital production of Lesson Plan, adapted and expanded from Georg Philipp Telemann’s Der Schulmeister, is inspired by a certain popular celebrity-expert-led online course series and is tailored for the operatically curious.

Featuring Stephanie Blythe and Laquita Mitchell
Performances Jan 21st - Jan 29th

Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt

Music by John Musto, Libretto by Eric Einhorn

We are reviving our original production of Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt for Baltimore's Peabody Institute!

Micro Operas

On Site Opera is thrilled about our partnership with Baldwin Wallace University and Cleveland Opera Theatre. They are producing 9 Micro Operas as a part of Operas in Place, a virtual festival coming in November 2021.
