Biography

Audrey Chait is a director, writer, and producer specializing in opera and multi-disciplinary performance art.
 
In the 2020-2021 season, Ms. Chait directs the world premiere of Marie Begins for Westminster Opera Theater (online release), The Telephone for Parea Recital Series (online release), Gallantry for Northern Kentucky University, and Don Pasquale for Opera Las Vegas. In summer 2021, Ms. Chait joins the prestigious Merola Opera Program. 
In the 2019-2020 season, Ms. Chait directed The Bartered Bride and the North American premiere of Dark Star Requiem, both at CCM, and La fille du regiment for Winter Opera St. Louis. 
 
Previous directing credits include Bolcom's Dinner at Eight, and the Bach St. John Passion, both at CCM, Scalia/Ginsburg with Opera North, The Magic Flute (Outreach Tour) at Kentucky Opera, and La cenerentola at Opera Las Vegas. Her production of L’elisir d’amore at Winter Opera St. Louis in 2018 was nominated for a St. Louis Theater Critics Circle Award. Ms. Chait’s assistant director credits include Santa Fe Opera, the Glimmerglass Festival, Carnegie Hall, Portland Opera, and Opera Colorado.
 
Ms. Chait holds a BA in Literary Arts from Brown University, where she studied playwriting and performance art with Erik Ehn. While at Brown, she was selected to travel to Berlin to meet with students in Daniel Barenboim's West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. In 2009, she directed her first opera and never looked back. 
"Once in a while, though, a concept comes along that works. Winter Opera St. Louis’ charming new production of Gaetano Donizetti’s comic opera “L’elisir d’amore (The Elixir of Love),” seen Friday night at the Viragh Center for the Arts, is a case in point."
