Taupecat Studios Hits a High Note with Virginia Opera

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the completely redesigned and reengineered Virginia Opera website. With our design partner, Jamin Hoyle of Branwellington & Cat, the new website boasts a clean, user-friendly, and responsive user interface, improved navigation, and the bold imagery of Cade Martin photography for the upcoming 2017 – 2018 season.

The previous website, built on Joomla!, was non-responsive and difficult for opera staff to maintain. It was in desperate need of a refresh, especially as season subscriptions neared sale. Jamin’s web designs further built upon the refreshed branding he started when putting together their brochure for the new season, which features Lucia di LammermoorSamson and Delilah, and other passionate operas. Incorporating into the theme of the website is this season’s tagline: “Love that is not madness is not love.”

The new website is also built on WordPress, the powerful and user-friendly content management system that powers an estimated 28% of the world wide web. The site is hosted on Pantheon.

Virginia Opera is our first major-client launch since we started Taupecat Studios this past March, and we’re so excited to help them bring this project to life. With performances in Norfolk, Richmond, and Fairfax, as well as opera education programs throughout the commonwealth, we’re glad to help them bring the beauty and passion of opera to all Virginians.
