New England Marionette Opera -- Meet Our Magic Makers

marionettes.org [cached]

EDWARD R. (TED) LEACH
FOUNDER AND GENERAL DIRECTOR At the age of 4 1/2, Ted left his house in Chappaqua, NY, and headed down the Saw Mill River Parkway toward New York City to join the circus. When discovered by local police, who knew him well, Ted was returned to his home by a vote of 4-3 with his mother abstaining. After countless hours in classrooms at The University of Tulsa, its College of Law and Harvard University, Ted was still focused on the circus - which explains why several of the current company of marionette manipulators were poached from Ringling Brothers. In an earlier life, Ted was the owner and publisher of weekly newspapers in New Hampshire, South Carolina and on the island of Nantucket, MA. He lives with his wife Beverly and his dog Typo on a quiet lake in New Hampshire and he has no spare time. "She was a natural" says theatre general director Ted Leach. She has continued with the company ever since and has performed in every production, touring company included. She has performed Marcello in La Bohème, Count Almaviva in The Barber of Seville, Amahl, and Cavaradossi in Tosca, (her first chance to die on stage). With such an intensive performing schedule, she still finds time to pursue a career in publishing and print production. During an interview for a theatre office position, Sharon became so animated in describing her past career that theatre General Director Ted Leach convinced her to try out as a marionette manipulator.


New England Marionette Opera -- About the Opera

www.marionettes.org [cached]

Started in 1992, by then newspaper publisher Edward R. Leach, the New England Marionette Opera now performs both at home and at guest appearances in venues throughout the world.
The five-year old company features two Puccini icons, La Bohème and Madame Butterfly, and is adding Tosca in 1997. It was the first company to ever present Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, and its holiday production of Amahl and the Night Visitors has already become a major New England tradition. Also in its repertoire are Carmen, Macbeth (Verdi), and The Barber of Seville. The company has a separate division called OK (Opera for Kids) Opera which currently has Mozart's Magic Fantasy, A Journey Through Mozart's Magic Flute in its repertoire. Edward R. (Ted) Leach, founder of the New England Marionette Opera, gets lots of advice from some of the La Bohème cast.

New England Marionette Opera -- Environmental Echo

www.marionettes.org [cached]

Theatre founder Edward R. (Ted) Leach said that establishing such a program has always been one of his hopes for the theatre.
"We have a very unique public platform here at every performance," Leach noted, "and this is a wonderful opportunity to acquaint our audience with two organizations whose work we applaud and endorse." Leach said that he has been familiar with the efforts of the Harris Center for many years. "They are a first rate organization and have done an incredible amount of good as they broaden environmental awareness in our area," Leach said. "The choice of Defenders of Wildlife was made, in part, due to the organizations efforts to reintroduce wolves to the eastern U.S. - specifically the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York," said Leach.
