Bold new music, passionate performance

You heard it here first: Earplay's 2019 season Desire and Idea presents passionate performances of bold new music, including five world premieres, four US premieres, and two West Coast premieres, including four new works commissioned by Earplay.

On February 22-24, we're thrilled to present our venture into chamber opera: three performances of the world premiere of Allen Shearer's Howards End, America, a fully staged Earplay/RealOpera co-production at ZSpace — tickets available here.

Our focus composer for our 34th season is Tristan Murail. We hope you will join us on April 8, 2019 in the new Taube Atrium Theater (4th floor of the War Memorial Veterans Building) to hear exciting music you won't hear anywhere else!
