Be a part of the UrbanArias Family!

As UrbanArias begins its second decade of creating world-class contemporary opera, we are so grateful for the donors who have helped us this far. In the first decade, we presented 11 world premiere operas, including seven UrbanArias commissions. Our new membership benefits provide a way for us to say “Thank You!” for the part you play in our work while giving you the chance to get a closer look at the creation and production of new opera in Washington, DC.
