“The aptly named Little Opera Theater has won attention for inventive productions of small-scaled works.” – New York Times, March 23, 2013, Anthony Tommasini
The Little Opera Theatre of NY (LOTNY) is a chamber opera company exploring uncharted corners of music both old and new. Their goal is to strip the artifice from opera and present it as a more intimate experience, enabling the audience to reconnect with the music, the performance, and the story. LOTNY’s recent productions include operas by L’Amant Anonyme by Chevalier de Saint-Georges; Slow Dusk & Marheim by Carlisle Floyd; Opportunity Makes a Thief by Gioachino Rossini; The Reformed Drunkard by Christoph Willibald Gluck; a double bill of operas by Gustav Holst, Travelers; and the New York City stage premiere of Mozart’s Mitridate; Prince of Players (2017). The Theater utilizes venues not typically associated with classical music, such as 59E59 Theaters, Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, and The Bushwick Starr in Brooklyn, engaging with audiences from other artistic disciplines who view opera in a different way.
