The North American Works Directory is the online hub for information about North American opera and music-theater works. This ever-growing Directory features data for over 1,200 North American operas, with information on vocal/musical forces, musical style, length, source materials, synopsis, contact information, and premiere dates and locations. Each opera’s Directory record also includes information on past and future performances produced by OPERA America’s organizational members.

The North American Works Directory also houses information on OPERA America’s grant program, The Opera Fund. In conjunction with Opera.ca's Canadian Opera Creation Fund, The Opera Fund provides technical and financial support to OPERA America Professional Company Members and others as part of an initiative to enhance the quality, quantity and creativity of new opera and music-theater in North America. Records for Opera Fund awardees contain additional audio-visual media, including production photos, production videos and/or audio excerpts. Click the Opera Fund link above to learn more about award categories, application information and past awardees.

This program is supported, in part, with support from:
