Let's make an opera together.

Become a Patron of Rhymes With Opera and be a part of our process.

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.

Nine 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 26 new works and sustaining a demand for RWO’s unique, intimate take on new opera.

Our latest project is a new work by RWO founding member Bonnie Lander, an innovative improvisatory new opera titled Coping Mechanisms.  Join us by becoming a Patron with your tax-deductible donation and let's make an opera together!
