Metropolis Opera Project is a group of artists dedicated to the development and production of brand new opera. We specialize in breaking boundaries and crossing genres, often reaching into unexplored musical territory where opera is concerned, diving into hip-hop, rap, electronica, folk and jazz opera. We strive to redefine opera and present it to a new generation of opera-goer all the while paying homage to the traditions of the art form. We’re proud to have presented over 25 shows, concerts and events since our first production in 2008 including many world premiere operas by young American composers.
