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 13 world premiere operas, including 9 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.
