Let's make an opera together.
Support new opera - right here in New York City - with your contribution to Rhymes With Opera.
Rhymes With Opera is an artist-driven, community-supported ensemble creating new opera in New York City. In 2007, five graduates from the Peabody Conservatory of Music started an ensemble with the goal to commission new operas written especially for the performers’ unique voices, and to bring these new works 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.
