Acclaim

“You have to admire the take-no-prisoners bravado of this plucky storefront ensemble…  [this is] the city’s alt-opera company.” — John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

The company’s productions have twice received Newcity’s “Top Five Operas of the Year”, while its production of Benjamin Britten’s “The Turn of the Screw” was featured in The Wall Street Journal and on 98.7 FM WFMT.
