This new partnership will provide our organization with stability and strengthen our fiscal responsibility through a long term contract. Making Kirkwood our new home and becoming part of a professional theater will facilitate and nurture growth for our organization as we can confidently plan for our future. This move also allows us to offer more performances dates to our productions, deepening our mission to enhance public appreciation and support of opera in St. Louis and to preserving the beauty of this art form.

Valet parking, day-of ticket purchases, and refreshments will still be available during each performance. 

Winter Opera is so excited for this new partnership with the Kirkwood Performing Arts Center, and are looking forward to an exciting new Season 14 this fall!
