The New Works Collective
Experience the future of opera with three all-new 20-minute works!
Last winter, more than 130 artists applied to create new operas with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. Ultimately, three multi-genre teams were selected by a panel of St. Louis artists, advocates and community leaders. Now, those three teams will prove just how innovative, inclusive and fun opera can be.
These stories will whisk audiences from 1920s Harlem to the modern-day Supreme Court and the exuberance of drag ball culture to the empowerment of a young female inventor. Get ready for a night full of boundary-breaking surprises and joyful voices as we celebrate diverse cultures, stories and the power of the human spirit.
Every night of the event, from March 16 to 18, includes performances of all three operas in the New Works Collective.
