We love to hit the road and perform in venues across the city, both large and small.
The goal of our Off Grand initiative is to expand the definition of what an opera company is, and who it's for. Be prepared for anything: exquisite concerts of 18th-century (Baroque) music or funky new music-theater pieces created by the most innovative artists of our time.
