Impresario Productions, LLC—Innovative Ideas for Opera Production
Opera need not be an exorbitant drain on an organization's resources. Impresario Productions Inc. was created primarily to offer artistically satisfying and cost effective ways of producing opera to organizations that are not opera companies. The company helps to produce high-quality performances, fully or semi-staged, with the goal of minimizing administrative overhead and negative cash flow often associated with opera production. Impresario Productions, LLC provides both the talent and matching technical aspects, considering an organization’s fixed costs, projected revenue, and artistic aspirations, and devises a strategic plan aimed at profitability. Services can be component specific (i.e., artistic direction, marketing ideas, casting) or comprehensive. Budgets are created with each presenter's goals in mind. The presenting organization maintains "brand" and ownership of each project, as opposed to tours and packaged productions.
