To be a leading Asian opera company that produces and presents innovative opera programmes which engage and develop Asian audiences while at the same time cultivating a broader ecosystem of opera production capabilities from our regional Singapore base.
We will accomplish our Vision in the following ways:
Deliver high quality programmes that encompass a variety of presentation formats and opera styles (both mainstream and lesser known) including iconic full-scale productions, smaller presentations focused on audience development, immersive performance experiences and masterclasses.
Identify emerging Singaporean and regional opera talent and maximize development opportunities for them through our programmes, including collaborations with value-adding coaching talent and institutions from around the globe.
Collaborate with established Asian talent from a broad cross-section of disciplines (theatre, local indigenous art forms, dance, visual arts) to create original, inspired concepts that reflect the richness and diversity of Asian culture and present a new Asian perspective to the genre of opera.
Spark connection moments for audiences to be moved by the power of opera by explaining and educating in everything we do, thereby introducing new Asian audiences to the magic of opera.

Relevant to Our Lives: We will present content in ways which address our audiences’ cultural context and contemporary values.
Experimental in our Approach: We will iterate to learn and improve; we will also push the boundaries in order to engage with our audiences.
