Opera Theatre of St. Louis Announces 2021 Festival Season

Opera Theatre of St. Louis has announced its 2021 Festival Season!

From contactless ticketing to a new smartphone festival app to socially distanced seating pods, Opera Theatre is taking all performances outside this year, creatively adapting the Festival Season in response to the pandemic.

Working closely with a team of medical professionals, Opera Theatre is committed to bringing audiences and artists together safely in a new outdoor setting adjacent to the Loretto-Hilton Center at Webster University, while maintaining the artistic values that have distinguished OTSL since its founding.

The coming season offers an exciting array of operas that will move, challenge, and delight audiences in equal measure.
