Opera ATX: Bella Noche de Música

Opera ATX, powered by Austin Opera, brings groundbreaking new works, emerging artists, exciting composers, and dynamic directors to Austin. By tapping into our city’s live music DNA, Austin Opera will continue to reflect the spirit of the city and the pioneering image it’s known for. Opera ATX explores alternative venues and partnerships around town. We create the conditions for operatic experiences completely new to Austin, and perhaps completely new to the art form. Driven by Austin Opera’s love of opera, love of audiences, and love of Austin, Opera ATX shows how Austin is shaping its opera company and inspiring innovative experiences.
