Owner Michael Chadwick has been providing supertitles to arts organizations all over the world since 2002. He started out providing them for productions in which he was stage directing, then for the small young artist opera company he ran as General Director from 2005 to 2007. Soon, other organizations started requesting to rent his supertitle translations for their own productions. Since then, his supertitles have been utilized in well over 500 productions with organizations spanning nearly all 50 states and four continents including New Orleans Opera, Atlanta Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Cape Town Opera, Scottish Opera, Fort Worth Opera, North Carolina Opera, Opera San José, and the Symphony Orchestra of India.

He has also served as Assistant Stage Director in productions of La Cenerentola and Faust at Opera San José, The Merry Widow at Houston Grand Opera, and Falstaff at Opera North where he was awarded the Brunson Award, the first time in the company’s history the award was presented to a production staff member.
