and engages audiences in the creative process to promote a deeper understanding of the transformative power of music-theatre in its many forms.

that works through artistic collaborations and organizational partnerships, both local and international,

to promote cultural diplomacy and a vibrant music-theatre community in the nation’s capital

– changing the conversation through the arts.


What is the Alliance for New Music-Theatre?

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
