A pioneer of the alternative opera movement in New York City since 1998, Vertical Player Repertory creates ensemble-driven opera theatre in extraordinary venues, among them a factory courtyard on the Gowanus Canal, an intimate storefront theater, the deck of an oil tanker, and the last active shipping port in Brooklyn.

VPR works to create productions that build a community of imaginative thinkers on both sides of the stage. We bring theatrical integrity and an unconventional spirit to an eclectic mix of repertoire, inviting performer and audience alike to re-imagine the possibilities of opera.
