HOT Chorus

The Hawaii Opera Theatre Chorus is made up of a wonderful community of singers who come from all walks of life: doctors, professors, biologists, botanists, teachers, homemakers, contractors, lawyers, accountants, retirees, students, and so on. The HOT Chorus is co-directed by Beebe Freitas and Nola A. Nahulu.

Host Housing

Do you have a spare guest suite, studio, apartment, or cottage? Then consider opening your heart and your home to one of our outstanding world-renowned opera singers! Guest artists are on island for up to four weeks during production and each are in need of a relaxing, private, and comfortable environment in which to unwind after a long day of rehearsals and performances. Meet talented opera professionals and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that a great performance first started with a great night’s sleep, all thanks to you!

If you are interested in this worthy cause, please contact Barett Hoover at 808-596-7372 or email b_hoover@hawaiiopera.org and sign up to house one of our visiting artists today!
