“All of us at Portland Opera are so glad to be able to bring live opera to the stage this summer,” Sue Dixon, general director of Portland Opera, said in a press release. “We are delighted for the incredible opportunity to partner with our neighbors at OMSI and collaborate with our friends at Oregon Ballet Theatre to welcome audiences again!”
