The purpose of Syracuse Opera is to enrich the lives of the people of Upstate New York through locally produced opera, the one all inclusive art form that celebrates the beauty of the human singing voice energized through the spectacle of live theater. Its core values are Artistic Excellence, Integrity and Community Enrichment.
Syracuse Opera is the only year-round professional opera company serving Upstate New York. The company produces three mainstage operas each season and provides year-round outreach and educational programs through the Syracuse Opera Resident Artist Program and Syracuse Opera Ensemble.
The Resident Artist Program was founded in 2008 to provide performing opportunities for emerging artists. Bernard Uzan and Diana Soviero are the Program’s artistic advisors. Resident Artists are selected from competitive national auditions and perform small roles or cover roles in mainstage productions and their own Resident Artist Productions throughout Upstate New York.
Syracuse Opera Ensemble is comprised of local artists who perform throughout the community and also serve as teaching artists.
For mainstage productions, Syracuse Opera hires the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra, Syracuse Opera Chorus and performs in the Crouse-Hinds Concert Theater of the Mulroy Civic Center. Noted for high-quality, theatrical productions that star young singing-actors, Syracuse Opera productions have been compared favorably to those of the New York City and Glimmerglass Operas.
Narrated by Meryl Streep, HURRICANE ON THE BAYOU takes a look at Louisiana before, during and after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The film follows a group of four musicians, both established and rising, as they reveal the thrilling culture of New Orleans. The musicians explore the alligator-filled bayous of Louisiana, recount their personal stories of Katrina and bring focus to the swiftly disappearing wetlands that protect New Orleans from deadly storms.
Originally filmed in 2005, two-time Academy Award ®-nominated director Greg MacGillivray began shooting HURRICANE ON THE BAYOU as a warning about the destruction of Louisiana’s wetlands and the danger that a hypothetical hurricane could bring to the region. In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina came to Louisiana and realized the very message MacGillivray was trying to send. The film then became a glimpse into the fury of Katrina and the slow rebuilding process of New Orleans.
