New Opera Workshop

New Opera Workshop (NOW) offers Columbia University students the opportunity to perform and produce opera in a collaborative, student-led workshop setting. NOW entertains the Columbia University community with high-quality productions appropriate for young voices, while helping members gain the skills necessary for careers in the modern world of opera. NOW enriches the operatic art form by developing new music and performance practices in order to engage new audiences.


NOW performs one main production each semester. These productions may include full operas, a showcase of scenes and shorter pieces, or other kinds of operatic performances.

NOW holds auditions at the beginning of each semester. Each production requires singers, musical directors, stage and movement directors, instrumental musicians, technical designers, and crew members.
