ABOUT US

 

Bare Opera is a women-run, alternative opera company in New York City reinventing the opera experience. Founded in 2014 by Min Lew, Laetitia Ruccolo, and Kirsten Scott, the company has only evolved its mission and broadened its artistic base. With minimalist, modern aesthetics, our exceptional emerging and established artists bring you the bare essentials of opera—a candid, immersive theatrical experience with breathtakingly beautiful music at its core. Taking place in unconventional spaces like galleries and warehouses, we strive to strip opera of its clichés and create a visceral and intimate experience for audiences, experienced and new alike. Bare Opera is keeping opera alive in the 21st century, one fresh production at a time.
