Opera MODO is a new and exciting opera company in Princeton, New Jersey, dedicated to creating opportunities for young and emerging artists. Founded in 2011, Opera MODO brings opera to the people through intriguing and modern productions of classical to contemporary operas.
Opera MODO is dedicated to helping young singers, performers, directors, conductors, and composers. Singers and performers outside of the world of academia have the chance to learn roles, work in realistic and challenging rehearsals, and transition to the world of professional singing through establishing contracts, deadlines, and self-promotion.
Directors can work with such performers to create a well-informed interpretation of various works. They learn how to work with individuals within the cast and learn the ins and outs of a collaborative working relationship. Conductors can establish rehearsal schedules, timelines, and private coachings while working within the structure of a full production.
Opera MODO also provides a platform for composers, workshopping and premiering new works with an excited and dedicated group.
