Tiny operas, big ideas. Back by popular demand, MNiatures returns with newly commissioned mini operas by Minnesota artists from a variety of artistic backgrounds. In collaboration with MN Opera, selected teams will create brand-new works through the creative mediums of their choosing. This program seeks to uplift local artists and give them space to foster their craft, ideas, and dreams.
Free access to digital performances is made possible by our generous community. As we find new ways of advancing our mission to provide access to innovative opera for all, please consider supporting MN Opera and the 2021–2022 Season.
