Opera Theatre of Saint Louis was founded in the spring of 1976 by a small group of opera lovers determined to bring festival-quality opera to the St. Louis area. The company is dedicated to high-quality productions of a varied repertory accompanied by members of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra continues to this day.

As of 2012 Opera Theatre has presented 22 world premieres (almost all commissioned by OTSL) and 23 American premieres (including this year’s Alice in Wonderland)—which may be the highest percentage of new work in the repertory of any U.S. company.
