Jess Crawford


PDX OPERAbeat | A Company Blog is the blog for all things Portland Opera, featuring a variety of guest contributors who will provide insider's tidbits on all we do to celebrate the beauty and breadth of opera. Jess Crawford is our primary blogger. Jess spends much of her time eating enormous amounts of cake, making long lists of books she'll probably never read, and challenging people to arm-wrestling contests. During the day (and sometimes at night) she is Portland Opera's music librarian. She writes more about her escapades at her personal blog:

Week Six: Putting it Together- Build it!

Logan is taking our Summer Opera Education Class: "Putting it Together."  We asked her to share her experiences throughout this 8-week interactive class.  Updates will be posted weekly.  Enjoy!

Week six: “Putting it Together: Build it!”


Tonight, we had many guest lecturers: Technical Director Kelly Knight, Props Supervisor Cindy Felice, and Costume Shop Manager Frances Britt. Last week we learned about conceptually designing the set of an opera.  Tonight these brilliant women taught us how to turn those ideas, sketches, and models into sets, props, and costumes to bring opera to life.
