NewOpera CO explores new paths for contemporary music drama. Niklas Rydén and NewOpera CO have during ten years written and performed five new-operas. The works are composed for singers with background in improvisation, pop and jazz. That gives the works a different sound than classical opera, despite the fact that the music is composed in a classical way. The music draws inspiration from both classical and modern music, but also cabaret and popular music.
All NewOpera CO's performances are filmed. There are also a lot of material from the processes and work in progress shows and discussions. Visit our film page here.
