Program Notes

Opera Theater of Connecticut celebrates its 36th anniversary this year! Founded in 1986, it provides professional artists with the vital opportunity to realize their talents in the practice of their crafts, provides access to the performing arts to a wide audience by presenting high-quality productions at an affordable price, and brings the performing arts into communities not regularly serviced by Performing Arts companies. 
 
Our MainStage productions are fully mounted and accompanied by our orchestra of professional musicians. By keeping the ticket prices for our fully produced operas low and by being the only professional opera company in Connecticut that performs in the summer, we bring in an audience otherwise unreached in the state. Our MainStage theater, Clinton’s Andrews Memorial Theater, at 500 seats, provides an intimate setting for our presentations, a truly moving experience when audience and performers connect. 
 
We focus on the standard and appropriate repertoire to provide young singers with the roles they will need to enter the professional world. We also collaborate with other performing groups, primarily incorporating dance into our productions, and are proud of our multicultural and diverse casting. 
 
In 1990, Opera Theater began informance lectures (Opera Talk) before each show, offering a chance to hear the director talk about the performance, composer, and opera. These informal and relaxed lectures are quite popular and are attended by ever-growing audiences eager to learn about opera. Since 1989, we have provided seniors and music students with free attendance to our dress rehearsals, which has given them access to opera presentations that they might not have been able to afford. These rehearsals have become a tradition for many seniors and senior organizations. 
 
For 37 years, we have been building our audience support, which is now a solid base of participants with diverse demographics, including age, economic status, race, and ethnicity. Inexpensive ticket prices and careful attention to repertoire, casting, and production values as well as our use of supertitles, which provide even greater immediacy with the story for our audience, truly appeal to young audiences and new opera-goers, drawing a substantial audience to our performances. Our slogan, “Experience affordable opera in an intimate setting,” is more than just a catchy phrase; for Opera Theater it represents the artistic vision, as well as the history, of the company.
