MISSION STATEMENT / DESCRIPTION >>
"Opera Theatre was founded in the spring of 1976 by Richard Gaddes, with a small group of opera-lovers who were determined to bring festival-quality opera to the St. Louis area. With a budget of $135,000 they presented an 11-performance season in English with a mixture of familar and unconventional repertory sung by the best young artists -- a style of production which continues to this day. In 1985 General Director Charles MacKay joined famed Artistic Director Colin Graham and Music Director Stephen Lord to lead the company until 2008, when he was named to succeed Richard Gaddes as General Director of the famed Santa Fe Opera. MacKay is now succeeded by Timothy O’Leary, who joins Music Director Stephen Lord and Artistic Director James Robinson as leaders of the company."
