This June, Rhymes With Opera teams up with the West End String Quartet and composers David Smooke and George Lam to present Criminal Intent: a crime opera double bill. We're taking the show to audiences in Baltimore, New York, Hartford and Boston.

Baltimore composer David Smooke's opera CRIMINAL ELEMENT is about a rogue trader in France who nearly brought down the entire European financial system in 2008. RWO co-director and composer George Lam's SOMEONE ANYONE tells the story of a woman who is offered the chance to leave her life of crime. Musicians from Rhymes With Opera and the West End String Quartet will travel from Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston, New Haven, Hartford and New York City to meet together and bring these operas to life.

Funding for this project will go towards travel expenses to rehearsals and shows, publicity, artist fees, and technical needs.
