We rely on the tremendous generosity of our donors to help sustain the company’s history of artistic excellence.
A gift to Opera Theatre of Saint Louis supports our mission “to communicate the power and beauty of live opera to audiences of all ages and experiences by presenting world-class productions in a festival format. To build a vibrant future for opera and serve our community through professional development and community education programs. To strengthen the cultural and economic vitality of our region.”
Thanks to your generosity, Opera Theatre is able to nurture the careers of exciting young artists and to offer a festival season that celebrates innovative productions of familiar operas and brings adventurous new work to the stage.
Opera Theatre strives to bring the highest artistic quality to the St. Louis region and to make the art form accessible and engaging through operas presented in English in the intimate Loretto-Hilton Center. With 24 world premieres and 23 American premieres in our 40 year history, Opera Theatre is committed to fostering St. Louis’s vibrant artistic tradition.
