New York Opera Alliance
This is the next step in the evolution of the New York Opera Festival. It brings opera directly to communities, and encourages participation.
This is a great time to get involved because legendary Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel is taking over the New York Philharmonic in 2026. He builds communities and is going to spark a renaissance of classical music all across New York City.
We hear you singing in the shower. Put the soap down and share your voice with us and maybe the world. We know you can sing. You won’t be the first international opera singer, discovered singing in the shower. Really!
