Founded in 2012, On Site Opera (OSO) is dedicated to producing site-specific opera in non-traditional venues throughout New York City (and beyond!). OSO has established itself as one of New York City’s most imaginative, nimble opera companies by doing more than simply staging musically and dramatically rich works outside of the opera house. Rather, OSO 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.  Since its founding in 2012, OSO has produced more than a dozen operas in as many unique venues, and has embarked on co-productions, commissions, and partnerships with regional opera companies and community organizations to bring a new definition of opera to audiences. 

Led by General & Artistic Director, Eric Einhorn; Executive Director, Piper Gunnarson; and Music Director, Geoffrey McDonald, OSO pushes the boundaries of what opera can do and be. OSO, a registered 501(c)(3), is a proud member of Opera America and the New York Opera Alliance.
