Join us for a conversation with artists and scholars around OTSL’s New Works Collective.

Last winter, more than 130 artists applied to create new operas with Opera Theatre St. Louis. Ultimately, just three multi-genre teams were selected by a panel of St. Louis artists, advocates, and community leaders. 

Meet the artists who are pushing the boundaries of opera, hear musical excerpts from their works, and learn more from acclaimed scholars at Washington University about the context surrounding each story. 

Moderated by Professor Adrienne Davis, and featuring panelists, Parkorn Wangpaiboonkit, Assistant Professor of Musicology, and CRE2 Graduate Fellow, Dennis W. Boyd, Jr., MSW, PhD student in Social Work at Brown School, and artists J. Mae Barizo, Jasmine Barnes, J.E. Hernández, Ronald Maurice, Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton, and Marianna Mott Newirth.

Free registration. Beverages will be available.


This event will take place at the 560 Music Center.

Parking can be found in the read of the building. There is a shared parking garage with COCA (entrance off of Washington Ave.) which offers complimentary parking on a first come, first served basis.
