Superb Summer Festival

Drinks and dinner in the garden, followed by super operatic performances, with champagne served afterwards...what's not to like?

If you like fine singing, great music, powerful drama, and masterful performances, Opera Theatre is where you need to be next season. Many people say they do not like opera, but it is no different from going to the Muny or the Peabody or the Fox. All productions are sung in English and there are English supratitles as well, so...

This was my second year going to Opera Theater of St. Louis and it is great. The venue is in a great area and the theater is intimate. It is still amazing that the music is played by members of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the singers don't need to be mic'd. Set design and costumes are stunning as... More

I have been to several productions of the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and they do an amazing job with great performers. The theatre is small and there isn't a bad seat in the house. All production are sung in English, but they also provide boards with the lyrics.

What this theatre lacks in grandness, it more than makes up for in intimacy. There is not a bad seat in the house and the performances feel very intimate. The productions are lovely and usually there's quite a variety of shows each season. One tip would be to bring a picnic lunch and eat outside before the show. The grounds... More

La Rodine on opening night was outstanding! I have been a subscriber to OTSL for some time now and I can't remember there being one bad opera. I have seen opera in other venues around the country and here in St Louis it is just as good!

A pure delight! Bright, funny charming and the singing is unmatched. If you are interested in the future of opera you need to come to St. Louis to hear the fabulous young singers at the start of their careers!

We attended the opera The Magic Flute. It was my wife's birthday and we spent $250 for our seats. Unfortunately a family with 3 small children (under the age of 6) sat behind us. The youngest kept kicking the back of my seat. This was a 3 hour opera. There were times we could not hear the performance due to... More

We attended the Jackson Browne concert in the Peabody Opera House. The venue was beautiful and the staff were very accommodating. We also had dinner at the Opera House prior to the show and the food was good. Purchased advance parking at the garage next to the Opera House which was a great idea since we walked from the garage... More
