We love to tell a tale. Newfoundlanders will weave a yarn as long as your arm and leave you wanting for more. A terrific story transports you to another place and time and opens your eyes to new possibilities. Opera on the Avalon brings compelling stories to life through the most powerful, authentic, and expressive instrument of all: the human voice. OOTA has a passion for contemporary works and new commissions that let us bring untold stories to light.
Living on an island in the middle of the Atlantic can have its challenges, made easier by our supportive and engaged community. Bringing together the talent, skill, and labour required to present professional productions of this scale requires a lot of support. By investing in OOTA, you are investing in the quality of life for those who live and work in our province. With your support, we highlight the inherent value of the creative industries — entertaining, life-enhancing, and defining of our diverse identities.

We program new commissions every four years, with the goal to start essential and engaging conversations about how we see ourselves and the world around us and, in turn, how we can fully realize those stories. Please contact our office for more information.
