About Us

Supporting the Arts

That music has the power to inspire and transcend all barriers, no matter how high or far they seem to extend.

Our mission is to stimulate and enhance the understanding of ourselves and others through the shared experience of live theater.

Music and theater have the power to inspire diverse audiences and enhance the cultural vitality of humanity.

Mission & Vision



By producing new plays and classics marked by innovative interpretations, reflection and inclusion of our community and the world in which we live ARTax’s mission is to stimulate, celebrate and enhance understanding of ourselves and others through the shared experience of live theater.



We, in ARTax, like to think that much of our appeal comes from the willingness to break old conceptions, conventions, and the barriers separating audience and cast. We do this by incorporating contemporary ways of stage movement for singers, testing the old canons of the traditional concept of opera and finding ways to appeal to new audiences by means of collaborating with other artistic and commercial companies.
