Board President

Welcome to the opera!

Our 2023-2024 season opened with

our 3rd annual Opera in the Park

concert in July at the Gene Harris

Bandshell in Julia Davis Park. This

FREE outdoor concert featured

world-class soloists, the Opera Idaho

Chorus and a live orchestra, under the

baton of our principal conductor Andy

Anderson. Over 2,500 Idahoans came

to enjoy two hours of free music.

The first mainstage opera will be

The Marriage of Figaro at The

Egyptian Theatre in October. Stage

director Robert Neu and conductor

Carmine Aufiero, the incredible duo

responsible for making you laugh in

last year’s production of The Barber

of Seville, return to give life to a

hilarious tale of mistaken identities

and romantic entanglements.

Next, in November, will be The Falling

and the Rising; a story of family,

service, and the sacrifices made by

our military forces. This production

will take place at Kane Auditorium

located in the Idaho Air National

Guard base at Gowen Field.

Opera Idaho’s Artistic Advisor and

soprano Cecilia Violetta López returns

to The Morrison Center in February

2024 to give life to one of the two

young lovers from feuding families in

Roméo et Juliette. Principal Conductor

Andy Anderson returns for this opera

based on Shakespeare’s timeless tale.

Closing the season in April is Cruzar

la Cara de la Luna (To Cross the Face

of the Moon), a bilingual mariachi

opera that explores the immigrant

experience. It will open at The

Egyptian Theatre and close at Jewett

Auditorium in Caldwell in hopes

to engage more of our Hispanic

I encourage you to meet the new

class of Emerging Artists. You can

read their bios on starting on page 23.

These four singers were chosen from

over 200 applicants for the coveted

positions in our Emerging Artists

Program. Opera Idaho offers them

many singing opportunities to build

their résumés along with coaching,

housing, and a stipend for eight

months. And in return, their work lifts

Opera Idaho!

Consider supporting Opera Idaho with

your time or with housing for visiting

singers. These gifts are an important

part of our business as an opera


We will miss Mark Junkert, our

general director for 15 years, who has

retired and moved to Philadelphia.

But he is helping us through the

interim with some of his time from

afar. As president of the board, I am

working closely with Mark to assure

that things run smoothly while

we continue our executive search.

With a dedicated board, staff, and

supporters, Opera Idaho continues to

be strong and to look forward to many

exciting seasons to come.

While this is our 51st season, we’re

not finished celebrating the 50th!

Many special events are planned for

November culminating on the actual

50th anniversary on November 30th.

So there’s still time for you to join

us in celebrating our history. See the

next page for a letter from one of our

founders, Mrs. Esther Simplot.

There is still time to double the impact

of your support by making a special

gift to Opera Idaho for the 50th,

thanks to a new matching challenge

from long-time supporters Jo-Anne

and Jeff Smith. Just mark your gift

as “for the 50th anniversary” and it

will be matched. What a great way to

carry us into the future!

2023-2024 SEASON






2023-2024 SEASON

Do you remember when you fell in

love with opera and those magnificent

voices? I do. I was fourteen and doing

the Saturday cleaning of our old

farmhouse with my sister, Marion. We

had a huge standing radio which was

blaring something awful, so I started

turning the dial. I stopped when I

heard “This is the Metropolitan Opera

Company presented by Texaco”.

These gorgeous voices poured out of

the speaker just overwhelming me.

From that Saturday on, at 2:00 p.m.

whenever I was able, there I was

soaking it all in.

Opera Idaho is completing its 50th

Anniversary. Most of you know

this as you have been attending

performances and giving generously

to our programs. Thank you. In 1972

I was newly married and had just

discovered there were opera singers

in Boise. That’s when it began, each

year a struggle but a triumph as well,

as we continued to present beautiful

operas and singers to the public.

Under the direction of Mark Junkert,

the last 15 years has seen tremendous

growth in our presentations and

our fundraisers. He managed to do

something that I had wanted one of

our organizations at the Academy

to accomplish . . . a free concert at

the bandshell in Julia Davis Park. For

three years now, the attendance has

continued to grow. It has developed

many friends who may not be able to

attend our annual performances. One

of my dreams has come true.

After he retired, my husband Jack

would say his job was to envision the

future of his company. Following in his

footsteps, I hope to do the same for

our Academy companies. The dreams

will be BIG dreams because, with the

support we have in Idaho, they could

come true.

Let’s begin our next 50 years with

“Great Expectations.”

The primary mission of Opera Idaho is to

fund and produce opera of the highest

possible professional standard, in Boise

and throughout the State of Idaho, and

to foster wider acceptance, appreciation

and enjoyment of opera and related

art forms in young people and adults of

all social and economic backgrounds,

through diverse educational and outreach

Emerging Artists Program

2023-2024 SEASON

Opera Idaho established its Young

Artists program in the 2017-2018

season. In 2020, the program was

renamed to Emerging Artists. The

program is designed to provide

training and performance experience

for talented singers at the beginning

of their professional careers.

From September 2023 through April

2024, the Emerging Artists will be

placed in a nurturing environment,

treated as professionals, and provided

with compensation and a comfortable

place to live. They will also tour the

Treasure Valley and surrounding

areas with an abridged version of

The Pirates of Penzance, introducing

students in grades K through 6 to

opera. In addition, they will fill smaller

roles in our mainstage operas, serve

as understudies for the lead roles, and

participate in smaller performances

throughout the season.

Opera Idaho would not be able to do

everything it accomplishes without

the help of people in the community

willing to donate their time to help

with everything from making phone

calls, data entry, to ushering for many

of our productions.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are a valued and integral

part of Opera Idaho. They play a vital

role by helping our artists, supporting

productions, reducing costs and

providing skilled assistance in virtually

every department. Their hard work

and generosity keeps the beauty and

passion of opera alive.

Volunteers of the Year

Once a year the staff chooses a

volunteer, sometimes two or more,

who go above and beyond to help

wherever needed, and recognize

them for their service.
