Townsend Opera, based in Modesto, CA, was founded in 1983. Under the direction of General and Artistic Director Matthew Buckman since February 2008, the company seeks to explore how an art form steeped in tradition can engage with the 21st century. Through the Opera Remix Initiative, launched in 2011, the company presents both traditional and forward-looking productions of the standard operatic repertoire and new American opera, and blurs the lines between classical arts and popular art experiences.
