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


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