About Arbor Opera Theater
Arbor Opera Theater of Ann Arbor was founded in 1999 to help bridge the gap between academia and the professional world of opera. It fosters the talents of operatic artists through professional performing experience and world-class training while cultivating a diverse audience through engaging programming and educational outreach. In 2011, Arbor Opera Theater began building a “festival” for the vocal arts to include other forms of vocal music such as cabaret, art song, musical theater and operetta. The AOT’s musical offerings range from La Traviata to Terrence McNally’s Master Class to a Tribute to the “Lawrence Welk Show.”
