Guerilla appoints new Executive Director!

Guerilla Opera is now an all women-run organization!

Announcing our new Executive Director

It's our 12th season and Guerilla Opera is making some major changes!

We are proud to be a women-run organization with newly appointed Executive Director Amy Advocat joining our team of Co-Artistic Directors Aliana de la Guardia and Julia Noulin-Mérat!

Our first production under this new leadership is a re-imagining of Marti Epstein's opera Rumpelstiltskin with stage direction by Nathan Troup and shadow puppetry by Iranian theater artist Deniz Khateri. We'll record the opera towards our second album release AND tour the show to New York City! Performances begin this spring - more info coming soon.

We hope that you'll support us as we enter this exciting phase of our development. We have so many exciting and ambitious projects in the works and your support will help us bring them to life!
