OOTA presents the best of traditional opera and musical theatre, with engaging and powerful new theatrical productions, that are focused on topics and themes which resonate within our regional and international communities. Through our New Commission Series, OOTA is starting a conversation about how we see ourselves and the world around us, and how those stories are reflected on stage, turning our history into art.
