We produce modern-day operatic performances that represent and connect the diverse communities, peoples, storytelling media and voices unique to our home-city. Our mission?
To change the world, one opera at a time.
We are committed to and advocate for equity, diversity, social and artistic innovation,
artistic excellence, interdisciplinary art-making, risk-taking, cross-sector collaboration.
But what is opera? Or more importantly: what is opera today?
At re:Naissance, when we talk about opera, we are talking about an immersive and intimate form of storytelling: one that combines movement and gesture with sound, speech and song to transport audiences to new worlds; we are talking about stories that connect the past with the present; we are talking about characters you can relate to; we are talking about singing you can feel in your bones; we are talking about a dynamic and collaborative art form that brings together artists and audiences from various walks of life to tell their unique stories.
Join us for a performance and let us introduce you to the new world of opera.
