Considine obtained his BA from University of San Diego in Music and Theatre, then received a Masters and Ph.D. from Boston University in Music and English. He founded Really Spicy Opera while in Boston, and relocated it to Minneapolis in 2006, where it has been a hit. For 2018 - 2020, RSO will operate under the Women In Opera Initiative, producing only world premieres in which at least 60% of the cast is female, 50% of the misiclibretto team is female, no female lead dies, and the cast contains no maids, nuns, prostitutes, courtesans or escorts, in an effort to overcome the trivialization and stereotyping of women in opera.
