About

Shakespeare Opera Theatre is a new kind of company, founded on a dream of bringing classical theatre and classical music together to explore Shakespeare’s peerless masterpieces. Join us in a unique exploration of a timeless work each year. SOT brings together actors and singers (who also play instruments, dance, and move scenery, among other talents!) with our orchestra, to pair opera, incidental music, and other great musical works with Shakespeare’s plays. Embark with us on a journey of magic and humanity, love and hate, piety and deceit, laughter and tears. Shakespeare has it all in spades. His works are germane to the English language, and within them is contained both the height and depth of the human experience.

We hope that you will attend these performances and enjoy yourself so much that you will be excited to tell your friends, who will also become fans of Shakespeare Opera Theatre. We rely on your ticket purchases and donations to bring audiences to their feet and artists to their craft. If you are moved to donate more than your ticket price, we greatly appreciate your generosity in any amount. Please visit our donations page to choose your level of sponsorship. All donations are 100% tax deductible. Please also join our mailing list so you can keep up with the latest in SOT news.
