THE FUTURE OF OPERATIC PRODUCTION
I found Sassoon Artists Management in New York City, in 2020. This is the year when Corona Virus Pandemic ravaged the world claiming the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. As the art world slowly recovers from the effects of cancellations, closings, quarantines, furloughs and lay offs that emptied opera houses and concert halls, I have developed my vision for the future of the opera. My method of selecting the artists is unique to the future worlds opera trends.
WHO WE ARE
LILY LIRIT SASSOON
FOUNDER AND MANAGING DIRECTOR
First and foremost I am a passionate opera aficionado who has been involved with opera singers and opera for over two decades. My business acumen coupled with vision and imagination, in addition to clinical skills of a voice expert and the pleasure I get from working with the opera singers, led me to creation of this company. Knowing the science behind the operatic voice production, it is still a miracle, a wonder to behold when I hear an opera aria artfully and dramatically performed by a talented singer. I recognize and admire the years of diligent studying, practicing and learning new roles, rehearsing, performing, meeting and resolving the obstacles on the way that the opera singers face. Opera singers are the true athletes of God.
