Founded in 2012 by tenor Shawn Mlynek and soprano Autumn West, the Cincinnati Chamber Opera lives by their motto: opera for everyone. That means staging small scale works in intimate venues, showcasing passionate performances by young and up-and-coming artists, and creating accessible productions without skimping on the vibrato. The young company has already presented pieces ranging from popular dramas such as L'Orfeo to little-known comedies such as Il Mondo Della Luna. By casting a broad stylistic net and keeping their stage pictures simple, Cincinnati Chamber Opera aims to return the art form to its populist roots.
