    About

    Immerse yourself in dynamic storytelling! One Ounce Opera, in our annual call for scores, reviewed over 40 works submitted from all over the world.

    We lined up an engaging program of four (4) new micro-operas that will immerse you in the sonic tellings of connective, important, oh-so-human stories. Stories that feel NOW. Dynamic. Familiar, yet…not. And you can experience all four in a single program: The 6th Annual Fresh Squeezed Ounce of Opera!

    Secure your seat for February 23, 24, March 1, & 2, 2024 at 7:30 pm; and February 25 & March 3, 2024 at 2:00 pm. We’ll once again transform The Museum of Human Achievement in East Austin and welcome you and your friends to reimagine opera in an unexpected space.
    Total runtime is approx. 110 minutes including an intermission.
