Welcome to
Opera Theatre!

Opera Theatre, known for a spring festival of inventive new productions, is proud to be among the leading American opera companies, and we are grateful to you – our audience and all our contributors – for fostering this special experience.

Our productions attract some of the most brilliant stars (and future stars) of our generation to sing in our intimate theater, accompanied by members of the extraordinary St. Louis Symphony.

Opera Theatre has a long tradition not only of discovering the finest young singers, but also of promoting the work of living American librettists and composers. With the end of the 2015 season, Opera Theatre has presented 24 world premieres and 24 American premieres – which may be the highest percentage of new work in the repertory of any U.S. company.

Our Mission:

Opera Theater’s mission is to shape the future of opera and to connect diverse audiences through its power and beauty.  To accomplish our mission, we produce a world-class opera festival, we champion new works, we build new audiences, we educate and engage our community, and we nurture the finest opera artists, artisans, and administrators of each generation.  By doing so, we strengthen the cultural and economic vitality of the St. Louis community.

Our Core Values:

Approachability

Civic Impact

Diversity and Inclusion

Innovation
