AOP's mission is to identify, develop and present new and innovative works of music theater by emerging and established artists and to engage our audiences in an immersive, transformative theatrical experience.

AMERICAN OPERA PROJECTS

Currently celebrating its 30th anniversary, American Opera Projects (AOP) is at the forefront of the contemporary opera movement through its commissioning, developing, and producing of opera and music theatre projects, training programs for students and emerging composers and librettists, and community engagement.

As One, a chamber opera by Laura Kaminsky, Mark Campbell, and Kimberly Reed that follows a transgender person's acceptance of identity, was developed and premiered by AOP in 2014 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and has since become one of the most produced operas written in the 21st Century with over two dozen separate productions. 

Operas that were created in AOP's development program First Chance and premiered with co-producers include The Summer King at Pittsburgh Opera (2017) and Michigan Opera Theatre (2018), Lucy and Independence Eve at Urban Arias (2017), The Scarlet Ibis at PROTOTYPE Festival (2015), Paul's Case at Urban Arias (2013) and PROTOTYPE Festival and Pittsburgh Opera (2014), Séance on a Wet Afternoon at New York City Opera (2011), Before Night Falls at Fort Worth Opera (2010) and Heart of Darkness at London's Royal Opera House (2011) and Opera Parallèle (2015). 

AOP further expands the operatic field through its opera writing training programs in partnership with NYU and Hunter College and its in-house, two-year fellowship program for emerging artists, Composers & the Voice, currently in its ninth season.
