    Ever wanted to be part of the creation of new classical music? Well this is your chance to help bring to life a brand new opera, created and performed by Bay Area Artists.

    The Opera:

    Hunter will hit the stage with four performances at the Exit Theatre in downtown San Francisco, July 14th, 15th, 21st, & 22nd, 2017. 

    The production will be fully staged by Director Sarah Young and presented with orchestra under the baton of Music Director Elliott Encarnación. 

    Our funding comes from individual donors like you! A gift of any amount (even $1) makes a huge difference to our independent, artist founded company.

    This production is an ambitious work commissioned by Opera Theater Unlimited.

    Your donations will go straight to paying the artists. We have six amazing opera singers and a six member chamber orchestra that are working hard to bring this piece to life as well as our incredible composer and librettist.

    Fair compensation for performing artists is the priority of Opera Theater Unlimited. Your support helps provide opportunities for amazing Bay Area classical artists.

    Stretch Goal:

    Although $3,000 will be an incredible help, we would be extremely grateful to reach for a goal of $5,000. An extra $2,000 would help cover the payment for our wonderful rehearsal pianist and lighting designer, as well as the rental costs for Exit Theatre.

    A gift of any size is wonderful and we appreciate your help in spreading the word!

    The Company: 

    Opera Theater Unlimited was founded by a small collective of local artists and arts enthusiasts in 2015. That summer, the organization held a successful Indiegogo campaign to fund the first set of shows. In the fall of 2015, the company launched a critically-acclaimed production of Benjamin Britten’s The Turn of the Screw at Stage Werx in the San Francisco Mission District. In July 2016, Opera Theater Unlimited thrilled audiences with its edgy, gender-blind-cast production of L'incoronazione di Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi. The production gained critical acclaim from local outlets such as the San Francisco Chronicle, which noted that the work had a “sense of entrepreneurial energy.” That production was chosen by The Chronicle as one of the Top Ten Bay Area Musical Events of 2016. In April 2017, the company hosted the Bay Area’s first 48-Hour Opera Festival to encourage new works and foster cross-discipline cooperation.
