Last winter, more than 130 artists applied to create new operas with OTSL. 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 artists J. Mae Barizo, Jasmine Barnes, J.E. Hernández, Ronald Maurice, Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton, and Marianna Mott Newirth, joined by Dr. Parkorn Wangpaiboonkit, Assistant Professor of Musicology, Department of Music and Dennis W. Boyd, Jr., MSW, PhD student in Social Work at Brown School, both of Washington University in St. Louis.
