Heretic Opera exists to develop fresh, honest, and innovative works of music theater based on life in the modern world.
We are committed to exploring the boundaries of opera as we foster a collaborative community for our creative partners. It is our belief that by offering artists the opportunity to develop, construct, and benefit from their own ideas, we will help to cultivate a new wave of arts entrepreneurship.
We apply our innovative perspective to the question of arts education, working from the belief that a compelling work of art, properly delivered, will always have a strong audience appeal. With this principle in mind, we support educators and emerging artists in crafting new strategies and reaching today’s audiences where they are most likely to be found – online.
We invite you to share our journey as our projects evolve. By documenting our process as we create, experiment, and fine-tune each new production, we hope to introduce young arts consumers to the pleasures of finely crafted music theater while allowing experienced audience members to follow along in an entirely new way.
