The ideas for OperaPulse were created in the spring of 2009 by two singers who lost their contracts due to the demise of Connecticut Opera. The events that led up to the ultimate downfall of the company, which used to be America’s fifth oldest, were shocking. What they witnessed wasn’t merely failed fundraising and marketing strategies; more detrimental to overall health of the company was the inability of the opera community to rise up, get united, and find a voice. Essentially, the community folded. OperaPulse is here to make sure the American opera communities find their voice.
