"Opera Ithaca has outdone itself again and promises even more for its next season." -Ithaca Times


"Ithaca now has its own prolific and qualified opera company. Exploring the edges of the genre’s boundaries, they are building a new audience of opera goers that might just be the opposite of the urban relics of classical opera aficionados. Whatever Opera Ithaca’s upcoming projects are, they might not be what one expects from the time honored tradition, but you can be sure they will be downright innovative, fresh and exciting to watch." ​ -Cornell Daily Sun 


"Entering their third season Opera Ithaca mixes world-class singers from across the U.S. with adroit direction and minimalist design. This year saw a charming Billy Blythe (Bill Clinton as a kid in Arkansas) with a blue-grass accented score, and a rousing, troubling and heroic Thumbprint, about the first woman to successfully bring her rapists to justice in Pakistan. Both were new works by women composers." -Ithaca Times
