Cynthia is a proud member of American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA) and Actors Equity Associate (AEA). For the last 7 years, she has lived almost exclusively in the world of Opera, working on over 40 stage productions during that time. Cindy has traveled the country to be a part of productions from Long Beach to Philadelphia, Boston, and on Broadway.
Cindy originally hails from Southern California where she and her twin sister first started working in theatre. After 4 years in Northern California (BA in Theatre from the University of the Pacific in Stockton) and 2 years in Cincinnati, Ohio (MFA in Stage Management from the College-Conservatory of Music on a full ride scholarship), she packed her bags and moved to NYC.
Within a week of landing, Cindy was hired to be the Production Assistant for Equus on Broadway (with Daniel Radcliff and the late Richard Griffiths). She then worked as the Production Stage Manager for the original Dear Edwina Off-Broadway for 6 months before her 1st contract with Long Beach Opera as the SM on Nixon in China (a show she has done twice and loves).

Assistant Stage Manager
Cindy is thrilled to be returning to Opera Omaha and to have the chance to work at the Orpheum with colleagues from the ONE Festival. Hapless and hopelessly in love, Nemorino idolizes the beautiful and popular Adina. To win her heart he spends everything he has to buy a “love potion” from the dubious Dulcamara. Director Rosetta Cucchi’s ingenious production updates this light-hearted romantic comedy to an American High School circa 1980. Conductor David Agler leads a stellar cast including Deanna Breiwick and Taylor Stayton as the young lovers in the most popular of all of Donizetti’s glittering bel canto operas
