My Name is

Emma Blissitt

I am a lighting technician and designer from originally from Milwaukee, WI. I have just graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire completing my bachelors degree in Comprehensive Theater, with an emphasis in Lighting Design and Technology. 


I love working on new works/adaptations and have recently found a passion in the opera realm of music and design. What draws me to lighting is the collaborative atmosphere and working with people of all backgrounds. I would love to help the next generation in receiving and telling better stories through lighting and live event design in keeping our old stories relevant to todays modern messages and world. 


Most recently I spent my summer with the Santa Fe Opera as an electrics apprentice making light in the desert! I was a mentee for ETC's Fred Foster Student Mentorship Program as a 2020 recipient studying under mentors John Featherstone and Connie Yun. Other recent employment includes being an Electrics Intern for the Williamstown Theater Festival in 2019 and acting as the Lead Lighting Technician for the newly constructed Pablo Center at the Confluence in Eau Claire, WI.
