Four Corners Productions is now the sole distributor of opera supertitles by SONYA FRIEDMAN
Friedman was the innovator of opera subtitles for television
Friedman was the first writer of supertitles for live opera performances -- at New York City Opera, and then in opera houses throughout the country.
Friedman was the first writer of the Metropolitan Opera’s Met Titles. She continues to write Met Titles, as well as subtitles for the Met’s telecasts - and for their new broadcasts of live matinee performances in movie theaters in ’07.
Sonya Friedman’s titles have also been used by:
Brooklyn Academy of Music
These companies have found Sonya's translations to be literate, concise, poetic, comic (where appropriate!) – and carefully crafted for the pace and nuance of each opera, greatly enriching the opera experience for their audiences.
If you have never used Sonya's titles before, we invite you to request a perusal script for your next production so you can judge her work for yourself:
