PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now, now celebrating its sixth year, is an annual festival of visionary opera-theatre and music-theatre works by pioneering contemporary artists from New York City and around the world. The festival is the only one of its kind in the United States – presenting fully produced premieres, national and international presentations, and work-in-progress showings of original genre-bending works by both emerging and career artists from the contemporary classical opera-theatre and music-theatre idiom. Focusing on innovative, mostly chamber-scale works, PROTOTYPE shows opera like it’s never been seen before: high-tech, edgy, and up-close. Following the smashing success of its first five seasons, PROTOTYPE’s visionary line-up has quickly become a can’t-miss annual tradition.
“Now a staple of the winter classical season in New York, the PROTOTYPE: Opera/Theatre/Now festival has championed diversity in its presentation of new music theater.”
— William Robin, The New York Times
