Ardea Arts is a nonprofit production and development company dedicated to creating and performing new opera and music-theater works. Our goal is to create work that brings new audiences, and to engage people far outside the walls of the opera house.
NEW OPERA NEW AUDIENCES
Our mission is:
- to create new operas that enchant, challenge, and inspire out diverse global community & encourage new ways of seeing our world;
- to make opera relevant to our 21st century world, nation, and communities.
We do this:
- by engaging new audiences & new generations in the process and the performance of the opera;
- by partnering with producers and community organizations to extend our reach both within and far outside the walls of the opera house.
Opera was first created as a theatrical form for the people. Our mission is to help keep it that way.
