Founded in 2012, On Site Opera is dedicated to producing site-specific opera in non-traditional venues throughout New York. On Site Opera molds its productions to specific locations using physical space to create an environment in which the concept, storytelling, music, and performers unite to form an immersive, cohesive, and meaningful whole. Praised by BBC News as “innovative” and by The New York Times for their ”seductive” productions, On Site Opera has presented Shostakovich at The Bronx Zoo, Gershwin at Harlem's legendary Cotton Club, and Rameau at Madame Tussauds New York and the Lifestyle-Trimco mannequin showroom as well as a site-specific workshop of Clarimonde, a new work by Frederic Chaslin and P.H. Fisher. Committed to exploring new technology in opera, On Site Opera implemented the first- ever Google Glass supertitles during its 2014 run of Rameau's Pygmalion, of which The Verge reported “Few things seem like obvious fits for Google Glass so far, but this is one of them.”
