Twins Talk Theatre

Twins Cynthia Hennon Marino and Stacy Hennon Stone host a weekly podcast talking to the people behind the curtains. Take a trip back stage to learn what it takes to put on a production: design process, music study and execution, paperwork, meetings, management, unions, and all the excitement backstage that the audience doesn’t get to see. Enjoy the show!

077 - Josh Shaw

April 12th, 2019
If you are a contemporary opera fan, or a fan of Star Trek or Super Mario Bros., you probably have heard of Josh Shaw's opera company, Pacific Opera Project.  Josh started the company 9 years ago to produce adorable and high quality opera for the masses.  Slowly it has grown to be well know for its modern mash ups that excite both opera lovers and newbies.  Such as his recent "The Magic Flute" set in the Super Mario Bros and Zelda world, sung in English.  Or the ever popular "Abduction From The Seraglio" set in the original Star Trek episodes.
