“Well sung is better than well said.” Our goal is to put opera back in the hands of of the people who love it the most: its fans and its artists. Poor Richard’s Opera is dedicated to providing a supportive and challenging environment for singers who are eager to perform. Fondly referred to as “grassroots opera” Poor Richard’s Opera simplifies the production experience to focus solely on the singers and music, usually performing in more intimate spaces and with piano accompaniment.
