Director. Dramaturg.

"I create my stories from the point of view of the main female character(s). My passion is to break the old operatic stereotype of the 'female victim' as seen through the eyes of men. This shift in perspective gives us full story as we experience these women for who they really are."

-Andrea's Interview with Broadway World

“As a woman who has lived through many different phases of emphasis in society and specifically in the opera world, I am resolute in my belief that my calling is to advocate for female-focused artistry. My experience as a singer of leading heroines in the lyrico-spinto repertoire equipped me with the tools necessary to dig deep and unpack the material from a composer and librettist. I love stripping away the traditional artifice and finding the core at the heart of each character, informed by deep historical research and a broad understanding of what a real woman would've been going through in her life. It is my great privilege to bring this same heartfelt and passionate approach to my work as an opera director and dramaturg. I believe in honoring the text of each opera, while using a fresh and innovative approach to reimagine the context of the story. This process which I call "HERstory" is my method for finding the humanity of each person on the stage as we bring each plot point back to the daily lives of real women who lived through these circumstances in the real world. I hope you find something fresh today in our telling of my stories, and I hope the work inspires others to leave behind their preconceived notions of how opera "should" be and look anew at the powerful women portrayed on our stage”
