Ambition is limitless.

International Brazilian Opera Company empowers dreamers, and you empower us.


Since 2013, we've supported 64 immigrant artists to work in the USA, developed 7 operas, presented in 3 countries, and have provided music education experiences for the young and old alike. 


As a member of our community, please join us to celebrate over cocktails and opera in the magical jewel box on Bryant Park, Luxuny Atelier.  Our merrymaking will strengthen our spirits and support our operations, artists, and new works. 




Thank you to everyone that reserved a spot for our exclusive evening of opera, jazz, and Brazilian popular music.


 You can still support diversity in opera and underrepresented and immigrant artists by donating to our cause. Join our email list and follow us @ibrazilianopera.

A recording of the event will be made available for the New Year.

"Just as Sayão, Villa-Lobos and Szot left Brazil to advance their careers, especially in New York, so too did composer João MacDowell. He created the International Brazilian Opera Company in New York and is its artistic director."

- Fred Plotkin, WQXR, Operavore

"[venture for]...the small but feisty International Brazilian Opera Company"

- Isabelle,

"The Brazilian composer João MacDowell was more direct in his admiration for “The Seventh Seal”, adapting it into an opera that had its premiere at the [Bergman] festival in a concert version".

Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Times
