Across the Board

The articles featured here appear in the Spring/Summer 2023 issue of Across the Board, a publication of OPERA America for opera company trustees.

From OPERA America's President and CEO:

You may already have begun to explore our expansive Oral History Project. If you have, you know I’ve spent the past two years capturing the stories of some of our field’s most distinguished leaders — artists and administrators, alike. Over the last half-century, they forged the American opera industry we enjoy today.

Their stories are inspiring and help us look to the future with a sense of possibility. As they did, we have to move forward with confidence we can restore, refresh, and reinvent opera for the decades ahead.

This issue of Across the Board — and the 2023 Opera Conference in Pittsburgh in May — will question the status quo: How can we engage audiences, raise funds, serve communities, and respect everyone whose talent and effort contribute to the success of opera in America? We will work toward answers here, in our Governance Essentials webinars, and in Pittsburgh. Join us!
