Our flagship core community outreach program. It's the one we built our name on. In 16 cities across the country you can find Opera on Tap performers treating audiences to high quality, entertaining casual opera concerts for little to no cost.
Our annual commissioning series which produces modern, immersive, and affecting new operas and supports up and coming local composers. Each production is intended to be presented in the kind of intimate alternative spaces that we frequent. Operas are premiered in New York and then toured to various OOT chapters across the country.

The Playground Operas program is a school day program that immerses students in the creation, production and performance of an opera. With the guidance of professionals working in the field today, students explore the operatic experience from the first moment of an opera's creation to the exciting culmination of its performance. The stage? Their own schoolyard playground.

A collective of OOT performers that presents original, irreverent, curated concerts of new music , with a focus on local composers. New Brewers are often joined by an instrumental ensemble. Past concerts have included a program showcasing female composers, an irreverent response to valentine's day, and a program of opera tunes rearranged as jazz standards. The program is currently active in NYC and Seattle.
A series that showcases young professional singers in a laid-back atmosphere and explores how we as artists can make opera tangible and appealing to people who may not know anything about it. These concerts are entertaining (for example, each director has to work a drinking game into the program), innovative, and immersive (we are big fans of audience participation). Each concert is curated by a young director at Freddy's bar in Brooklyn, and is followed by Liveband karaoke. Follow the fun at #operahomebrew
