EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A few issues were distinct about Diane Martindale from a youthful age. She was a free spirit, an adventurous lady who failed to conform to society’s anticipations of her. And she was also musically gifted.

So some say it was destiny that Martindale, born in Evansville in 1933 to a modest family and a graduate of Reitz Substantial University, would go on to start a successful opera manufacturing company in New York Metropolis.

In the early 1980s, she co-launched Dicapo Opera Theatre with a previous scholar named Michael Capasso. In its 30-calendar year-operate, Dicapo, rather of a portmanteau of “Diane” and “Capasso,” rose to prominence as New York’s third important opera firm just after the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Metropolis Opera.
