East Van Opera is dedicated exclusively to the creation of new music. Why East Van? Because we believe in staying true to our roots, and embracing the qualities of our community: diversity, hard work and acceptance. We whole heartedly support elevating women in the arts. It is our dream to encourage young performers to step out of their comfort zone and join us in our mission to be strong and creative forces in the world of music.
East Van Opera is back with our second original score for the exciting presentation of our newest opera, Beauty’s Beast. Join us at the Annex performing arts theatre for an evening of luscious harmonies and hauntingly beautiful melodies as our talented cast present this new music by local composer Allison Cociani. The libretto penned by Anna Shill is an expression of compassion and selflessness, as it dives into issues facing consent, Stockholm syndrome, female empowerment, and critical self discovery.
