Juliana Snapper creates radical operas in unlikely spaces, usually at great
personal risk and inevitably drawing her closer to financial ruin. She employs
opera as a technology of exchange both in grandiose collaborations and intimate
performances, applying original research to push the sonic and expressive
limits of the voice and to expand our understanding of what voice does and how
it means. Snapper studied voice at the Oberlin Conservatory and completed her
Ph.D. Dissertation in Critical Studies/Experimental Practices from the University
of California, San Diego.
