This season, more than ever before, we need your help in keeping Hudson Opera Theatre alive and thriving. So we’ve devised a little campaign in which everyone comes out a winner. But this will only succeed if everyone takes the challenge to heart. Everyone includes our casts, crews, chorus, orchestra, and most especially our audience members. It’s a simple plan and easy for everyone, but remember, it will only work if everyone does it...
Are you willing to take The Challenge?

Brahms Requiem (2012)
“...a glorious performance of this masterpiece...[an] uplifting, powerful presentation. Audience members rose to their feet in heartfelt appreciation...”
Verdi’s “Aïda” (2012)
The eight principals... singers and dancers were well rehearsed and fully involved in the emotional melodrama. The sustained final standing ovation for the production proved that opera lovers had witnessed a memorable musical event.
The Barber of Seville (2002)
“...it was a sparkling performance... with a number of extremely clever staging devices...”
La Traviata (2005)
“Verdi’s music is almost overwhelming, with De Fesi pulling and pushing his wonderfully balanced and resonant orchestra and lively cast to reach as high as they could...”
Suor Angelica (1996)
“...an elegant and choice production... ...graceful, melodic and haunting in the best Puccini style.”
Giulio Cesare (2006)
“He came, he saw, he conquered. Yes, Julius Cæsar, of course, but also Ron De Fesi in his role as artistic director. Under his direction, productions in the recent past have proved so noteworthy, that the site has become a mecca for rising opera singers.”
