In this time of regrouping, when there are more questions than answers about what lies ahead, or when and how we can mount live productions in theaters, we are nonetheless committed to partnerships, conversations, and explorations that will bring us together, and to search out the words to tell the stories we need to hear and create music that breaks open hearts.


Check out our new Feature - Video Conversations - BELOW

Latest one with Susan Galbraith & Tim Nelson

Who We Are?  What We Do?  


What is the Alliance for New Music-Theatre?

  •  An Alliance that brings together local and international artistic members working across the genre and disciplinary spectrum of  music-theatre.


  • A Partner with embassies, museums, a consortium of theaters, educational and other cultural and internationally-minded institutions


  • A not-for-profit organization holding a 501(c)3


What Do We Do?

  • Develop new works -- including opera, musicals, cabaret, jazz works, multi-media, and cross-cultural works where music, word, and often dance-movement co-join – through research, writing, composing, and workshops


  • Produce bold, mostly original works that respond to and tell stories that resonate with our times


  • Explore new ways of making sound, offering on-going training to singer-actors and other music-makers that develop their stylistic capacities


  • Forge Strategic Alliances with like-minded, forward-thinking partners to support each other’s work and strengthen the Washington community as a whole


  • Engage with audiences in conversations through sharing initial ideas, open rehearsals, workshops, and post-show discussions to cultivate ever-more critically appreciative audiences of our work and music-theatre throughout the Greater Washington area
