About Katrina

Katrina Fasulo is a rising arts leader with a demonstrated career in opera leadership. She is a results-driven innovator with a keen eye for detail and timely project management.

Katrina’s foresight and ability to connect stakeholders to organizational mission in intentional ways has helped organizations emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic in strong fiscal health, through both day-to-day operations and long-range strategic vision.

As a graduate of the University of Michigan (BMA Vocal Performance, Arts Management, Program in Entrepreneurship) as well as Seattle University (MFA Arts Leadership), Fasulo leverages a background cradled in the intersection of artist/administrator and practice/academia, to achieve strategic goals through a thoughtful approach.

Fasulo finds fulfillment in supporting artists, fostering belonging and inclusivity on and off stage, and building audiences for sustainability through authentic cultural experiences. Her commitment to growing audiences of opera in intentional ways is a palpable continuation of her thesis “Opera Under Reconstruction: Strategic Responses for Audience Engagement” in the ever-evolving performing arts landscape of the 21st century.
