a musical exhibition of all-new vocal works

The annual Exhibition is the most important step in the NVO process. It's with this concert that we find the next season's composers and the next two operas for production. This event gives us the chance to work with all the composers submitting works for consideration and get feedback from the performers, directors, and the audience.  

We accept scenes from operas in development as well as individual vocal works. Scenes are preferred, but any piece will give us a feel for a composer's voice and the rehearsal process will let us know how he or she works.  

The Exhibition is an evening of promising new music, refreshing themes, and exciting performances. One of our two favorite nights of the year!
