Mission Statement

Led by Artistic Director Garrett Fisher, the Fisher Ensemble creates music-theater that seeks to be a vital part of our community and culture. Combining diverse influences into a unique sound, the Ensemble's works invite audiences to re-imagine the contemporary world through lenses of myth and history.

Description

Garrett Fisher’s idiosyncratic theatrical world combines opera, dance, Indian raga, Noh theater and film which The New York Times describes as "fusions that have both a ritualistic intensity and an improvisatory freedom...a groundbreaking hybrid...a strong, unified and strikingly individual utterance of unambiguous beauty." Based on a collaborative process that allows performers their own interpretations, his pieces cohesively integrate a diversity of influences that defy any specific genre or tradition. In 2014, his new work Kakitsubata will be premiered in Cologne, Germany and at Seattle’s ACT Theater; his opera The Passion of Saint Thomas More will also receive its European premiere by EOS Oper Köln.

In 1994 Fisher founded the Fisher Ensemble, an eclectic collection of actors, vocalists, instrumentalists, and dancers dedicated to the performance of new works. The Fisher Ensemble mission is to create music-theater that seeks to be a vital part of its community and culture, and invite audiences to re-imagine the contemporary world through lenses of myth and history.
