UrbanArias is a ten-year-old opera company
dedicated to producing short, contemporary operas. Everything we
produce is 90 minutes in length or shorter; everything we produce was
written within the last 25 years.
Our mission is to expose DC-area audiences to engaging, accessible,
and entertaining operas; to provide a professional venue at which both
established and emerging composers can present their shorter works; to
commission new, short operas regularly; and to bring new audiences to
the art form through relevant, current material.
