Opera is not just about beautiful music, but about a space where individuals regardless of race, age, socioeconomic status, gender and sexual preference are empowered to share an emotional and empathetic experience.
Everyone deserves to have a voice, be heard, and have those feelings respected. During this time, and always, Opéra Louisiane offers our support to artists, colleagues, patrons, and friends of color who need to be heard.

Opéra Louisiane & Brew Agency Create “Trash Opera” to Increase Litter Awareness
BATON ROUGE (January 28, 2022) – Opéra Louisiane, the Capital City’s Opera Company, and Brew Agency, a full-service branding and advertising agency, collaborated to produce a video to increase awareness of the severity of litter issues across the state of Louisiana and how they create flooding. This piece was pursued to support the work and mission of the Louisiana Stormwater Coalition, a grassroots effort dedicated to raising awareness about the benefits of permanently funding stormwater management programs.
The piece brings to life a very real picture of how litter on the streets negatively impacts our community’s watersheds, ecosystem, culture and tourism. “We are excited to partner with Brew Agency and Opéra Louisiane to use art and music to bring awareness to an issue that is easy to solve,” said Marie Constantin, Co-founder of the Louisiana Stormwater Coalition.
This video was originally created for the 2021 Ebb & Flow Festival event and is made possible in part by a grant from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, funded by the East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President and the Metro Council. This project was also made possible by support from Entergy.
