Known for chamber performances of operas including Astor Piazzolla's tango opera María de Buenos Aires and Daniel Catán's La Hija de Rappaccini, Alamo City opera was originally founded in 2012 under the name Opera Piccola. The company's final production, As One, a 75-minute opera centered on a transgender character, was performed at UTSA's Buena Vista theater in January.
The originally planned 2019-2020 season, which included Lucinda y las Flores de la Nochebuena, Frida and The Threepenny Opera, has been cancelled, and the company's website has already been shut down.
