Rhymes With Opera is an artist-driven, community-supported ensemble creating new opera in New York City. In 2007, five graduates from Baltimore’s Peabody Conservatory of Music launched an ensemble with the goal to commission new operas written especially for the performers’ unique voices, and to bring these new works to life.

Eleven seasons later, and with the support of hundreds of artists, volunteers, donors, and a devoted fan base, Rhymes With Opera has become a new opera machine, premiering 27 new works and sustaining a demand for RWO’s unique, intimate take on new opera.


Help us create new operas with a tax-deductible donation or by becoming a volunteer!


RWO is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in the state of Maryland.
