After more than 30 successful years transforming the lives of performing artists and teachers, OperaWorks has ceased all programming as of August 2018.  Read More.


From 1987-2018 OperaWorks developed and empowered singing-actors, coaches and teachers to excel personally, artistically, and professionally, and developed new audiences through innovative alternatives to traditional opera productions.  More than 2,000 singers, voice teachers, coaches, conductors and directors trained with us. They include Grammy Award winners, international career singers, teachers on voice faculties throughout the United States, and artistic administrators in established companies.


OperaWorks was committed to bringing awareness to current social issues through live musical-dramatic productions in intimate theater spaces. The purpose of these productions was not to moralize, but to raise awareness on social issues beyond what is available in media or political sources.


Through Ann Baltz‘s acclaimed holistic teaching methods, we changed the landscape of performance education throughout the industry.
