Opera Theatre of Saint Louis

Theater & Performing Arts


Opera Theatre of Saint Louis (OTSL) is known for its local impact, national presence and global resonance. Every year, the arts organization produces a spring festival season of inventive new productions sung in English and accompanied by the Grammy Award-winning St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Performances take place in the intimate Loretto-Hilton Center for the Performing Arts at Webster University. Before and after the shows, audiences gather in lush gardens for picnics and cocktails. Opera Theatre of Saint Louis has a long tradition of discovering the finest young singers and promoting the work of living American librettists and composers. As of the 2023 Festival Season, Opera Theatre will have presented 37 world premieres — which might be the highest percentage of new work in the repertory of any U.S. company.
