Exceptional venue for the St. Louis Opera. Ive been several times, and each time was extremely positive. The staff are always helpful to guide you to your seats.

Review №2

I am unhappy with some of the changes for this year.The first one is the 6 hour production of the first play which forced you to buy an extra ticket to see the entire production. It should have been included in the season package.Number 2 is the screen settings of Pride and prejudice-if I wanted to see a movie I would go to the movie theater. Usually, we have lovely period settings for Jane Austin plays. This year we had a Christmas tree, and a couple tables and a teapot. I did not care for the slide backgrounds, very disappointing.The last play was shockingly horrible subject matter. Very little entertainment this year, if I wanted a moral story, I would go to church.As far as I can tell, the new director has not appeared at the Wednesday afternoon performances. Steve Wolf never missed a performance. The. monthly newsletters have ceased. I am just not happy with the theater’s offerings and decline of information this year.

Very nice space and stage. Saw Jenifer Lewis there last year and had thee best time. She’s incredible and the space allowed her to get right up and close with the audience. She came over to me personally during show to comment on jus how much I was laughing it’s that close there

Intimate theater setting. The rest depends on the show and cast.

Theres not a bad seat in the house! Every production by the REP and Opera Theatre of St. Louis that Ive seen there has exceeded expectations in every area. Wonderful!

Review №6

Attended matinee production on Sunday. This theater is so intimately wonderful. There is not a bad seat in the theater. The plays are fun or thought-provoking or just plain entertaining. I have been a season ticket holder for many, many years. This is my tteat to myself.

Weve been season ticket holders for over a dozen years and we intend to continue into the future!

Review №8

Its a sturdy old theater with a forward thrust stage. Seats are dated and.too small for typical American nowadays.

Review №9

Great performance! Wonderful theater!

Review №10

Love the theater in the round. Weve attended the rap and Opera theater of St Louis for years and havent been disappointed.

Review №11

Opera theater of St Louis has become a mainstay of the summer cultural season. They perform four operas over four weeks. All are performed in English with super titles on the walls at the front of the auditorium. OTSL is known for its original productions of old war horse operas as well as contemporary productions..The Opera I saw this week was The Coronation of Poppea. And while one word expect this Opera from the 1700s to not very lively, this was instead placed in a contemporary setting with opera singers doing a great amount of acting. The ptoduction look more like a contemporary Opera such as Wocjek with the soon to be Empress doing all she could get Neroto getridof his wife so she could be crowned. Empress. Not exactly a new scenario as witnessed over the ages among royalty as well as theupper classes. While Im not usually a fan of early opera, OTSL presented this masterpiece in a very accessible and interesting light. Definitely notboring and worth a visit if you like opera.
