Emma recently graduated cum laude with a BA in English from Yale University, where she was the 2015-17 Managing Director of the Opera Theatre of Yale College (OTYC). She was the production stage manager of six OTYC productions, including Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen (2017) and Emmanuel Chabrier's L'étoile (2016). Earlier this year, she was the assistant stage manager and assistant director to Brittany Goodwin for dell’Arte Opera Ensemble’s production of Cavalli's La Calisto. Additionally, she is the assistant stage manager for the Yale Baroque Opera Project (Cavalli's Xerse in 2016, La Didone in 2017, and Egisto in 2018). This fall, after stage managing La bohème for the Madison Theatre in Rockville Centre, NY, she returns to Yale as the production manager of a new baroque pastiche opera, The Silent Lyre, which inaugurates the Lighten Theater at Pauli Murray College.
