Company début

In December, Ahn will make his company début with On Site Opera in a holiday classic, as Kaspar in a highly acclaimed production of AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS by Gian Carlo Menotti, presented at the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in New York City, featuring a chorus composed of community members who have experienced homelessness.

“Director Eric Einhorn’s vision for Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera resets the story in modern-day New York, and connects the story’s themes of charity, community, and forgiveness to NYC’s prevalent issue of homelessness through partnerships with Breaking Ground, a supportive housing organization, and the production’s venue, Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.
