The Opera Theatre of Saint Louis Guild is a volunteer organization committed to the growth and success of opera in St. Louis.

Since 1976, men and women of all ages have played a vital role in supporting the creative life of OTSL.  Guild volunteers work side-by-side with artists, company members, and staff year around. We welcome your involvement, no matter what your time commitment.

Volunteer hours are not spent in meetings, but in contributing your enthusiasm and skills to support OTSL. We have lots of volunteer opportunities:
