    New executive director Mark Junkert on Opera Idaho

      After a year and a half of holding down two part-time jobs in two different states (New York and Minnesota), Mark Junkert and his partner, Cathy Carlson, decided it was time for a change. He saw the opening for Opera Idaho in a trade publication. He liked what he saw, and the Opera Idaho search committee did too. In May, he loaded up a U-Haul in Brooklyn, made a stop in Minneapolis for Carlson and their Minnesota belongings and headed West.

    Opera Idaho takes on the Italian opera
      Last Saturday morning, in the studio space at Esther Simplot Performing Arts Academy, Opera Idaho began its final week of rehearsal for Donizetti's comic opera, the second and final performance of the company's season. At the request of stage director David Cox, 20 or so singers swiftly took the stage, waited for a cue and erupted into song. The story of a simple country bumpkin who falls in love with the darling of the town, Elixir of Love is classic romantic comedy with two soon-to-be-in-love stars, a rival love interest and a character who turns the tide.
