Opera Theater of Connecticut, founded in 1986, 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, giving the artists (singers, musicians, designers and support staff) the chance to expand their potential by experiencing an actual performance. By keeping the ticket prices for our high-quality, fully-produced operas at about half the cost of other professional opera companies in Connecticut we bring in an audience otherwise unreached in the state.

Our MainStage theater, Clinton’s Andrews Memorial Theater, at 500 seats, provides an incredibly intimate setting for our presentations, a truly moving experience when audience and performers connect, an event rare in the larger halls in which most operas are performed. The small stage has technical limits, not so severe as to hamper a full production, but definite enough that we will never be able to put more emphasis on production values than on the true heart of opera, the voices and the music.
