In the idea of refreshing the operatic repertoire, The Nu Opera, as associate producer, presented in 2017 a project of a wonderful and rarely performed opera by Giuseppe Verdi, Stiffelio. Following one of our company´s big ideals -pushing new and outstanding latinamerican talents-, a wonderful mexican mezzosoprano, Rocio Tamez, did her debut in 2018 in the role of Dorotea with great success. Moreover, german musical conductor Felix Krieger, did an amazing debut in Mexico City with the Orchestra of the Palace of Fine Arts this same year.
The Nu Opera was asked to help the Mexican Bar of Lawyers in Mexico to build a beneficial concert which was a huge success. The company invited two outstanding opera singers, soprano Maria Katzarava and mezzosoprano Rocío Tamez alongside the talented pianist Sergio Vázquez, to make an unforgettable opera gala, raising funds for the "pro bono" lawyers who defend people with no financial resources.

Two extraordinary musicians come together to perform with instruments used in the early music period.
They've created a program highlighting the beautiful colours and expression that only the harpsichord, gamba and voice can give. Music from the Spanish Renaissance to Cuban music of the 20th century, the program is divided in six parts (the number of strings on the viola da gamba). Each part represents a part of the day. Beginning with dawn, music continues through the day all the way to sunrise of the next morning, with time for virtuous work, a relaxing break, a hot afternoon, and even soothing sounds of the night. Each of the six parts use music chosen for its power to evoke that part of the day, gracefully bringing music of a surprising amount of styles and places together in an imaginatively beautiful way.
MUSIC BY: Marais, Guastavino, Händel, C. Valdés, Forqueray, Monteverdi, Robredo, Valdés, Lorca, among others!

The Nu Opera is an independant production company specialized in bringing any performing arts project into life. One of our goals is to create new audiences. Culture is a human right and it should be for everybody. Deconstructing the stereotype that the performing arts are just for some, is our main priority.
This company is mainly focused in reviving the traditional titles with new contemporary and fresh stagings in order to make them attractive to our modern society. The Nu Opera is also looking for new art works from the XX and XXI Century, but never leaving the classics aside.
Also, we strongly believe that children are the continuity and future of the performing arts, this is why producing art for the younger audiences is another of the company's priorities.
Coproducing will always be another of our strong points. Producing with other companies and theaters make the final result richer in content and easier to move around the planet. In a globalized world, art productions should reach every corner, every culture, every human being.
The Nu Opera is looking forward to help new and consolidated artists rise by working for single projects. Where we see an opportunity, we do our best to get it for you. No exclusivities and no charging for contracts we don't work for you. The company is also happy to make collaborations with agents all over the world.
Besides, the company is eager to help artists from all over the globe but making emphasis on singers, actors and actresses, music and stage directors and dancers from latinamerican countries who have a lot of talent but haven't found the opportunity to work abroad.
Likewise, we are working on bringing performers from all over the world to Latinamerica too.
There is a strong believe that living from the arts or investing in them is non profitable thing. The Nu Opera believes this to be wrong. We invite all investors loving culture to get in touch with us to proof them that investing in the performing arts is not only an extraordinary and passionate experience, but a redituable one.
