Now in our fourteenth season, Connecticut Lyric Opera is Connecticut’s only full-season professional opera company. The mission of Connecticut Lyric Opera is threefold:
Inspire: To contribute to the cultural life of Connecticut and betound with high quality operas, concerts and recitals from the traditional and contemporary repertoires.
Involve: To encourage the development of Connecticut-based singers and musicians through their participation in professional opera productions and other public performances.
Instill: To present opera to people of all ages in such a way as to foster a love and appreciation of the art form.
To these ends, CLO produces three fully staged professional opera productions per season with orchestra and chorus, another fully staged opera with orchestra involving Young Artists as part of our Summer Opera Institute, as well as other concerts and recitals throughout the year featuring CLO soloists and orchestra members.
