QUEER OPERA

Dedicated to telling

queer stories 

through opera.

"Being a part of a welcoming and understanding environment [...is] a relief. I'm learning how to live my life more authentically, and being comfortable as a queer person in a field that feels so un-queer feels like a step in the best direction."

Grace Dawald, soprano

‘Contralto’ and ‘Queer Opera Experience’: queer is a verb

October 11, 2018

“I see so many reasons why Queer Opera is needed. The world of opera desperately needs new stories to tell on a grand scale, and LGBTQ characters come with tales of oppression; forbidden or unrequited love; hidden motives; fear and anxiety; secrecy that is a matter of life and death.”

Erik Asakawa, tenor
