Madeleine Snow: OPERA America’s Annual Opera Conference

OPERA America’s annual conference is the largest assembly of opera administrators, artists, trustees, and associates in the world. Hosted by a different opera company in a new location each year, the conference is a major site of industry discussions, networking, and performances that move opera forward. Madeleine used the Special Opportunity Grant to attend the 2022 conference which will be hosted by the Minnesota Opera in Minneapolis. The focus of this conference is to affirm the collaborative strength of the opera community and ask the question, “What is the mission of an opera company in today’s world?”
