To engage, teach and inspire through the power of opera.

OPERAnauts’ mission is to introduce and present opera, a powerful musical art form, to an intergenerational audience to demonstrate the collaborative and community-building process which it drives.

Who We Are

A team of performing artists, artisans, and creative artists – including opera singers, musicians, dancers, photographers, videographers, journalists, and designers – supported by youth leaders who promote music as a tool to dissolve the cycle of violence and poverty.

“Music is really this wonderful resource for us. What I find when I am overwhelmed with how choices that are being made for others over which we have no control and it seems like the higher powers and the strong men seem to be winning, that listening to or singing music transforms us and can lift us above it all. It is, quite simply, hope.” ~ Joy Bechtler
