The Indie Opera Podcast on Itunes

The driving force of opera is in small opera companies with independent producers. Indie Opera is the place to go to for news about where opera is headed, in companies that are creating new operas and who are presenting the classics in new ways for wider audiences.

Peter Szep is often joined by Brooke Larimer and Walker Lewis, with Associate Producer Chuck Sachs to create a podcast focused on the heart and soul of opera production, in the trenches where new work is created and the future opera is being openly debated.

Episode 37: Sign and Sing!


Sign and Sing is an innovative company integrating American Sign Language into classical music performances. Founder Katherine Dubbs joins us to discuss why she started this company, how her performances work, and some of the resources available to help opera companies make their performances accessible to all… among many other things.

Also, we continue with our “Noah’s Culture Bits” [is this really what we should to call it?] where Noah introduces us to The Hermaphrodite, an opera/ballet based on the myth of Aphrodite by Olav Anton Thommessen.
