In 2015, Evans Haile, came on board as General Director, bringing unparalleled experience as a producer of musical theatre and as a concert pianist and impresario to Opera North. In 2017, the National Park Service selected Opera North from among other organizations to partner in the creation of a park for the arts at Blow-Me-Down Farm, a 46-acre property deeded to the adjacent Saint Gaudens National Historic Site in the early 2000s. In July 2017, Opera North tested the concept of using the Farm as a performance venue, hosting a bluegrass concert on the lawn overlooking the Connecticut River. In July 2018, the company presented a fully-realized performance, Singers & Swingers, in four sold-out performances under a circus tent at Blow-Me-Down Farm. The event blended â€œarias and aerialistsâ€ as singers from Opera North summer productions alternated with circus acts from Circus Smirkus, the Big Apple Circus and Cirque de Soleil.
