Tracy Wenckus

General Manager, Broadway in Portland


Describe what you do for Portland Opera

I oversee all elements of our Broadway in Portland Series. The series is a partnership between Portland Opera and Broadway in Portland. Locally, we manage all marketing, public relations, and subscriber services.

What music/book/movie/show/poem/place/moment is currently inspiring you?

I have always used books as an escape. I like a good mystery to take me away from day-to-day stresses.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A teacher

In my free time, you can usually find me...

Reading, walking, and trying to learn to golf (it's not going well).

What is your favorite Portland Opera memory?

How do I name just one?  The best memories I have of Portland Opera are not necessarily a specific production or event. The staff, resident artists, guest artists, volunteers, partners, and all of the local vendors I have worked with and continue to work with day to day and event to event are a treasure. I have been very lucky to create so many amazing memories with this company.
