It is always Lyric Opera of the North's goal to expand our audience, and enliven the appetite for opera in our region. Les Unc will help us reach a new audience, while appealing to our loyal patron base. We will grow as a company as a result of our work with Colder By the Lake - resulting in a company of better singing actors. Les Unc will have a larger cast than many of our productions and 100% of the singers will be local. By combining our efforts with Colder By the Lake, we will be better able to reach beyond our regular fan base and invite and encourage a wider audience for this opera than for some of our other offerings. This is a comedy, so we will certainly listen for laughs. We want high quality singing and playing. We want high production values. We measure success in the following ways: audience response, artist and designer response, donor and sponsor response, and artistic quality. Measuring ticket sales and donor response is quantitative, and therefore not difficult. Audience response comes to us in unsolicited comments and through survey responses, and artists and company members are always forthcoming in their feedback. Our Board of Directors meets with Music and General Directors following each production to evaluate artistic and organizational success.
We sold out three performances of this production, eventually selling seats that were obstructed view, due to demand. Nearly one half of ticket-buyers to these performances were new to Lyric Opera of the North.
