Opera Theater Of Connecticut Inc
Formed to provide professional artists with the vital opportunity to realize their talents in the practice of their crafts.
Opera Theater of Connecticut was formed in 1986 to provide professional artists with the vital opportunity to realize their talents in the practice of their crafts, to provide access to the Performing Arts to a wide audience by presenting high quality productions at an affordable price and to bring the Performing Arts into communities not regularly serviced by Performing Arts companies. Our MainStage Opera Productions are fully mounted, thereby giving the artists (singers, musicians, designers and support staff) the chance to expand their potential by experiencing an actual performance. Ticket prices for our fully-produced operas have been about half the cost of other professional opera companies in Connecticut. Theater Wing performances, also produced on our MainStage, have provided another professional venue for Connecticut’s actors to explore and showcase their talents in Shakespearean plays, and have reached an audience otherwise unserved in the state.
